The attacks of March, in Salisbury, have once again come to life. The use of the military grade nerve agent of Russian origin known as Novichok, and the alleged attack to murder former Russian former spy, Sergi Skirpal and his daughter, has stiffened Theresa May’s stand to sanction Russia.
Therefore, after 6 months of attacks the Prime Minister is pressing for the Kremlin to be hit by fresh international sanctions, after two Russian spies were named as suspects for Novichok attack in Salisbury. Looking at the seriousness in the matter, May has thus called an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council on Thursday and will ask world leaders to back Britain’s stand against Russia.
In her statement to the MP’s, she alleged that it is not only UK, but also the other westerns nations that are planning to take action against the GRU, the Russian intelligence service. Adding, “Together with our allies we will deploy the full range of tools from across our National Security apparatus in order to counter the threat posed by the GRU.” However, Russia’s intelligence continues to deny their role in the matter.
The UK Prime Minister also took the issue to notice of America’s President Donald Trump, and presented the latest evidence linking men who travelled to Britain, under the names of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov to attack.
The incident literally mocked Theresa May’s power and thus its reflex action triggered the dismissal of 23 suspected Russian agents in the UK. The situation has become much more demanding, and May now fears adversity. Therefore, an upsurge in her wants to add to the list of Russian names on a European Union travel ban, and penalties for misuse of chemical weapons can be quite easily seen.
In her proclamation, Mrs May said: “The GRU is a highly-disciplined organisation with a well-established chain of command. So this was not a rogue operation. “It was almost certainly also approved outside the GRU at a senior level of the Russian state.”
Accusing that the Russians often resort to activities of these sort, she added “Their attempts to hide the truth by pushing out a deluge of disinformation simply reinforces their culpability.”
Sanctioning of Russia is on cards for May, and with an emergency meeting called up front, it looks like ‘well begun is already half done’.
