Mr Speaker, this chemical weapons attack on our soil was part of a wider pattern of Russian behavior that persistently seeks to undermine our security and that of our allies around the world,” May said.


“They have fomented conflict in the Donbas, illegally annexed Crimea, repeatedly violated the national airspace of several European countries and mounted a sustained campaign of cyber-espionage and election interference,” May continued. “They were behind a violent attempted coup in Montenegro. And a Russian-made missile, launched from territory held by Russian-backed separatists, brought down MH17.”

The Russian government continues to deny any involvement. Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that the release of the information on the suspects “revealed nothing.”
