The UK Defence Secretary said relations between London and Moscow were "exceptionally, exceptionally chilly".

"Frankly Russia should go away, it should shut up".

Williamson is to use his first keynote speech since becoming defence secretary a year ago to respond to the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, which the government is blaming on Russian Federation.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May earlier accused Russian Federation of being involved in Skripal's poisoning.

The UK ambassador to Russia, Laurie Bristow on Tuesday was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry, over the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, in the UK last week, the ministry told TASS.

Gavin Williamson will reveal that troops held at high readiness will be offered the vaccine as part of new measures to tackle the threat from chemical weapons. It is absolutely atrocious and outrageous what Russian Federation did in Salisbury.

Theresa May, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and Donald Trump said that the first offensive use of a nerve agent on European soil since the Second World War "threatens the security of us all".

"There were state-based threats, but they were not as obvious as they are now", Mr Williamson said.

Asked about reports that the Russian state is planning to respond by expelling United Kingdom diplomats from Moscow, Williamson said: "We will look at how Russia responds to what we have done".

Outlining global threats to the UK, Mr Williamson accused the Kremlin of "ripping up the worldwide rule book", and he warned the UK is at a "crossroads".

Mr Williamson will warn: 'We have arrived at a profound moment in our history, a crossroads where the choice before us as a nation is simple - to sit back and let events overtake us or step forward.

"A Britain proud of its past and confident of its future".

Thousands of British troops are also to be vaccinated against anthrax. The common belief at end of the Cold War that world would become a "better and safer place" was no longer "the reality".

The Russian Foreign Ministry commented on Williamson's tough statement, saying "it shows that Britain's partners are anxious and London has things to hide", The Guardian reported.
