The British Minister was scared of Russia’s plan to “kill thousands of people” and asked for money
The British defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said that the Russian attack on infrastructure will lead to “thousands and thousands” of victims. This opinion he expressed in an interview with the Telegraph.
According to him, Moscow is studying the potentially vulnerable spots in the protection of infrastructure and energy of the island nation, including ways of energy supply from continental Europe, with the aim of creating “panic and chaos”.

The publication notes that the statement of Williamson coincides with the beginning of a five-month approval process, the defense policy of great Britain, during which the defense will try to get more budget money to prevent cuts in the Royal armed forces.
