'Russia Should Go Away and Shut Up' – UK Defense Minister
One of the questions posed to Williamson by a reporter in the audience was: “Russia has said it will expel British diplomats from Moscow. Has the UK got a further package of measures it could unleash in response? And could this include a military response?”
“What we will do is look at what Russia responds to what we have done. It’s absolutely atrocious what Russia did in Salisbury. We have responded to that. Frankly, Russia should go away and should shut up. But if they do respond to the action we have taken, we will considerate it carefully and we will look at our options but it would be wrong to prejudge our response,” Williamson replied.
