Following the disaster happened to the former spy Sergei Skripal, MPs, authorities, and the widow of murdered dissident Alexander Litvinenko put pressure on Theresa May to apply a tougher stand against Russia.
The protesters asked the Prime Minister to confront Vladimir Putin strongly, ahead of National Security Council meeting. They demanded Theresa May a strong retaliation against Russia regarding poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal.
People of Wiltshire city were seriously warned and were asked to wash their clothing and possessions, after the tracks of the nerve agent were found which was used to poison the double agent and his daughter were found.
The police warned all people who were in The Mill pub between 1.30pm last Sunday and 11.10pm on Monday, or the nearby Zizzi restaurant between 1.30pm on Sunday and 9pm on Monday, to follow the advice.
Since Russia didn’t take the responsibility of the attack, senior ministers with the leadership of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson decided to use the meeting of the NSC to gain more information from Russia.
The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, criticized Russia of “acts of war” last week. However, it has been said that the Prime Minister tried to make him silent. The Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson backed him in the Cabinet.
Marina Litvinenko, the widow of murdered Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko, was also among the protesters who accused both Russia and the Prime Minster broken promises. As she claimed she received a letter sent by May promising to “continue to pursue justice”, to ensure no repeat of her husband’s killing on British soil.
“Unfortunately, it happened again and the lesson after the murder of my husband was not learned,” she told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.
