UK needs to engage with Russia ‘MILITARY TO MILITARY’ warns Fallon amid WW3 tensions.

BRITAIN needs to engage Russia “military to military” according to Sir Michael Fallon in a brazen speech amid escalating global tensions.

Hard hitting speech by Sir Michael Fallon about taking action against Russia
Sir Michael said: “Great nations like the US and Russia will talk. Indeed, they must talk to preserve the rules-based information system underpinning our security and prosperity. The UK too needs to engage with Russia, including military to military.”
In a call to action he added: “Engagement is an equation of risk versus reward, with the outcome decided by a nation’s deeds, not its words.”
The Tory reiterated that Trump was “100 per cent backing NATO.”
As Britain further aligns itself with the US in the wake of Brexit, Trump’s representative at the UN, Nikki Haley, last night said: “The US would not be lifting sanctions until Russia gives back Crimea.

“The US stands with the people of Ukraine who have suffered for nearly three years under Russian occupation and military intervention.”
In a rallying cry to the British intelligence services Fallon added: “Russia is clearly testing Nato and the west. It is seeking to expand its sphere of influence, destabilise countries, and weaken the alliance.
“It is undermining national security for many allies and the international rules-based system. Therefore, it is in our interest and Europe’s to keep Nato strong and to deter and dissuade Russia from this course.”

He had stinging criticism for the Russian government as he said: “Above all, we must not accept as any kind of new normal Russia’s propaganda, whether overt or covert, its easy disregard for hard facts and numbers, or its blatant distortions and evasions.
“There is a special Russian word for this, vranyo, where the listener knows the speaker is lying and the speaker knows the listener knows he is lying but keeps lying anyway.”
The hard-hitting speech will surely garner a reaction from Vladimir Putin and it will be interesting to see if they have any effect on the renewed fighting between the Ukraine and Russian-backed separatists.
The comments from the Defence Secretary come in the wake of the British army sending a tank through the Channel Tunnel that a Russian colonel slammed as a “cheap PR stunt”.
