    May Plots to Punish Russia as Crisis Over Poisoned Spy Deepens
    Tim Ross, Robert Hutton and Kitty Donaldson | March 13, 2018

    [​IMG]


    U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will set out how she aims to retaliate against Russia over the nerve agent attack on a former spy and his daughter, deepening tensions between Vladimir Putin’s regime and the West.

    May will meet with her national security and intelligence chiefs Wednesday to assess whether Russia has given a credible answer to her charge that it was behind the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury, southwest England. She will then update Parliament on her response.

    Putin’s officials rejected May’s ultimatum to account for the attack by midnight Tuesday and warned her there will be repercussions if she acts against Russian media or diplomats based in the London.

    The crisis is a key test for May as she navigates Brexit and for the wider Western alliance in how it responds to Putin on the eve of Russian elections. On Tuesday President Donald Trump said he backed her “all the way.” May will set out her next move Wednesday.

    ‘Stand as an Alliance’

    The 66-year-old spied for the U.K. for a decade, beginning while he was working for Russian military intelligence. He was sent to Britain in 2010 in a spy swap. In a state-television documentary released Sunday, Putin said he can never forgive treachery.

    The assassination attempt is sensitive for the U.K. because the country has historically been loathe to take substantive measures against Russia for attacks on its soil. Its response to the 2006 murder of Russian Alexander Litvinenko, for instance, was widely derided as toothless.

    On Tuesday, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson spoke to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who agreed that the alliance must unite in response, the U.K. said.

    “They both agreed that Russian actions repeatedly threaten the security of NATO partners – from the Baltics, Balkans, Ukraine and Georgia – and NATO must stand as an alliance to call out Putin’s behaviour,” the British Foreign Office said. The U.K. will brief the North Atlantic Council on the crisis Wednesday.

    @HomerThompson How come you're not maintaining a mega thread for this event? There are ample interests for the on-going developments I think.

    You mean as the sticky thread? Honestly, threads that stay in the regular area get more traffic. Also, I noticed you were updating this thread quite nicely over the last 36 hours or so. Staying out of the way is one of the hallmarks of good leadership. :)

    There are like five different threads on this subject on the first page for some strange reasons.

    You should request the Mods to merge them all* into this original thread, then keep your OP/thread title updated so people can follow the newest developments, without checking five different threads. :cool:

    (* with the exception to that one duplicated thread that turned out to be a giant circle jerk by salty Hillary voters who met up solely to talk about Trump. That one should go straight to the Dump)

    May is getting played by Putin, not as bad and embarrassingly as Trump, but still likely falling into a trap.
