Embassy press secretary answers media question on sea cables

Q: For a week already retired and serving British servicemen have been talking about the possibility of Russia severing UK’s underwater internet cables in case of war. How serious is that?

A: Such sensationalist statements can cause but regret, as they are fanning the flames for the unwholesome sentiment created by PM Theresa May’s “banquet speech”. Instead of discussing European security, an important issue for all the European nations including UK, London keeps speculating on numerous mind-boggling scenarios of a hypothetical conflict. The reasons look obvious – but even if the UK military needs money so badly, why intimidate people this much?
