If Russia role in nerve attack proved, Britain will respond: PM May, assassination, Theresa May 8-3-2018 | Britan – Londin
Britain will respond appropriately if evidence shows Moscow sponsored a nerve agent attack on a Russian ex-spy and his daughter in southern England, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday, in the highest-level warning of action to date. Guarded approach comes as police say Sergei and Yulia Skripal deliberately poisoned
Former double agent Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, have been in hospital since they were found unconscious on Sunday on a bench outside a shopping center in the quiet cathedral city of Salisbury. British media and some politicians have speculated that the Russian state could be behind the attack – suggestions dismissed by Moscow as knee-jerk, anti-Russian propaganda. The government has reacted cautiously to news that a nerve agent was involved in the Salisbury incident, with Amber Rudd, the home secretary, insisting the police must be, “given the space they need to continue establishing the full facts”. Rudd, who had earlier on Wednesday chaired a meeting of the government’s emergency Cobra committee, thanked the emergency services involved and said: “As the police have said this is an ongoing investigation and, along with the other services, they must be given the space they need to continue establishing the full facts.” Breaking News – No 10 cautious over linking Russia to use of nerve agent against ex-spy
“But let’s give the police the time and space to actually conduct their investigation,” she added, in her first comments on the attack since police said on Wednesday a nerve agent was used.
“We will do what is appropriate, we will do what is right, if it is proved to be the case that this is state-sponsored,” May told ITV News, when asked whether Britain could expel the Russian ambassador over the attack.
“Of course if action needs to be taken then the government will do that. We’ll do that properly, at the right time, and on the basis of the best evidence,” she said. Scientific tests by government experts have identified the specific substance used, which will help identify the source, but authorities have refused to disclose the details.
Both victims remain unconscious, in a critical but stable condition, while a British police officer who was also harmed by the substance is now able to talk to people although he remains in a serious condition, interior minister Amber Rudd said. But it is unclear how Britain will respond if the police investigation of the Skripal case points to Russian involvement.
