Russia will pay a high price for its actions if it tries threatening the UK and breaches the international regulations; Jeremy Hunt, the British Secretary of Foreign Affairs said that as quoted by Reuters.

'Under the Conservatives, Britain has a simple message for the Kremlin: If you try to intimidate this country, if you use chemical weapons, if you don’t play by the international rules, the price will always be too high,'

He added that Great Britain is 'going to close the net on the GRU,' referring to the Russian intelligence service. 

Earlier, Hunt suggested Moscow will be wondering whether the Salisbury chemical weapons attack was 'a smart thing to do.' Speaking to The Kay Burley Show in New York, he revealed his "frank exchange of views" with Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov, during a 'pretty tough' meeting at the UN General Assembly. One of the Russian men accused of the Salisbury poisonings has recently been exposed as a military officer who received an honor from his country's president, Vladimir Putin. 'It is not acceptable for Russia to instruct two GRU agents to use chemical weapons on British soil, the first time it's ever happened,' Hunt said.
