The Russian Federation is studying the performance of vital infrastructure of the state and their relationship with continental Europe in order to sow “panic and chaos”, said in an interview with British newspaper the Daily Telegraph the head of the military Department of great Britain Gavin Williamson.
According to the Minister, representatives of Russia allegedly taking pictures and watching the power stations and are monitoring the systems on which the country receives a large amount of electricity and energy. “
They watch them because it is ways in which you can hurt the UK,” said Williamson.
According to the British Minister, he has suspicions that the Russian Federation intended to damage the economy and destroy the infrastructure of the UK, which will lead to thousands of victims and will create “chaos in the country.”
Williamson also noted that if the country will lose supply system, three million households will remain without electricity.
“In a few years they will depend on eight million households,” said the Minister, adding that this could lead to a General chaos in the country.
The newspaper notes that the Minister’s words sounded at the moment when the British war Department is preparing to approve a defence policy. Thus Williamson is seeking the allocation of more substantial funds in order to avoid cuts in the army.
