Estonia: 'Putin wishes to divide Britain from allies' — UK Defence Secretary

UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said that «what President Putin wishes to do is to divide Britain from its allies,» during a press conference held with his Estonian counterpart Juri Luik in Tallinn on Monday. Calling the decision of 14 EU member states to expel Russian diplomats over the Skripal poisoning case «deeply touching,» Williamson said it «sends a very clear political message... Еще that actually friends and allies stand together no matter how tough and how challenging things are.» In addition to Luik, Williamson met with Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid and Prime Minister Juri Ratas during his visit. On March 14, the British government announced the expulsion of 23 Russian diplomats over the Skripal case. On Monday, the US, Canada and several EU countries ordered diplomats to leave.
