Williamson produced the outburst in his first keynote speech since being appointed defense secretary a year ago.

Mr Williamson will describe the attempted assassination as "calculated and brazen", saying: 'If we doubted the threat Russian Federation poses to our citizens, we only have to look at the shocking example of their reckless attack in Salisbury.

"Russia has, in my view, made a deliberate political decision in terms of what they did, in terms of attacking Britain".

The Defence Secretary admitted the "cool war" with Russian Federation was "feeling exceptionally chilly".

But Gavin Williamson warned Russian Federation against escalating the diplomatic battle over the attempted murder of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

During Williamson's pre-arranged speech - his first keynote address since his promotion last autumn - he revealed that the government will plough £48m into a new chemical weapons centre, which will be under the umbrella of the Porton Down military research establishment. It was the same laboratory that ultimately liked the attack to Russian Federation.

Gavin Williamson will reveal that troops held at high readiness will be offered the vaccine as part of new measures to tackle the threat from chemical weapons.

Manafort asks to have charges dismissed
Westling previously represented a former Louisiana governor in a civil forfeiture proceeding, according to his law firm biography. Mueller's prosecutors continue to claim Manafort is a flight risk, and both judges have agreed.


This allows British troops to be deployed to areas where the risk of this type of attack exists.

He will add: "In the face of intensifying threats, we must prioritise investment in military capabilities".

Anthrax is a spore-producing bacterium and is often used as a weapon in a powder, spray or as an aerosol - with inhalation the most risky form of transmission and usually fatal.

"To sit back and let events overtake us, or step forward - seizing the moment as we leave the European Union to shape our vision for a bold, more prosperous Britain". This is our moment to retain our competitive advantage'.

In a speech at a Rolls-Royce plant in Bristol, Mr Williamson will set out the threats that face the United Kingdom and the need to make sure the United Kingdom has the right capabilities to match these threats.

"It will mean taking our intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capability to the next level and it will mean accelerating the development of our innovative 77 Brigade - those reservists and regulars who give us the ability to win the information war - so we create and counter the narratives so central to modern conflict".
