“Theresa May has launched a powerful attack on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s foreign policies during a speech in the City of London. The Prime Minister pledged the UK will continue to play a leading diplomatic role after Brexit, suggesting a post EU divorce trade deal would support Europe’s commitment to open economies and free societies in the face of Russian threats to the international order. … Mrs May accused Russia of ‘seeking to weaponise information’ as she criticised Moscow’s meddling in elections and hacking of Denmark’s defence ministry and the German parliament.” (11/14/17)
