The head of the British government reminded that Russian President Vladimir Putin in one of his recent speeches said: "In a situation where the States' interests do not always coincide, the strategic win is impossible at the expense of others. When the state does not comply with the General rules of conduct and pursues its own interests, it provokes resistance, and the differences are unpredictable and dangerous." "I say to President Putin: "I agree." But it is Russia's actions threaten international order on which we all depend," added may.
The Prime Minister said that the UK understands that the current situation could lead to a new cold war and as "the eternal conflict". "Many of us looked at post-Soviet Russia with hope. As a permanent member of the UN security Council, Russia has the opportunity to play a vital role in strengthening international stability and responsible for this," said Theresa may.
At the same time, she warned that until then, until that happens, "we will act together to protect our interests and the international order on which they depend".
In particular, may stressed that Britain would do everything necessary to protect itself, and will work with allies to do the same for them. "That's why we reform NATO, to this important Alliance were better able to contain and confront a hostile Russian activities. That is why we have increased our military and economic support for Ukraine", — said the British Prime Minister.
