The Prime Minister told MPs that evidence overwhelmingly pointed towards the Kremlin’s involvement in the “brazen” poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

Russia will stand accused of “an unlawful use of force” against Britain if President Vladimir Putin’s officials are unable to prove his agents were not culpable for the deployment of one of the most deadly “military grade” nerve agents ever developed, she said.

Mr Skripal, 66, and Yulia, 33, remain in a critical condition in hospital after coming into contact with Novichok – one of the most dangerous chemicals known to man.

The pair were found slumped on a bench in Salisbury town centre on Sunday, March 4.

Det Sgt Nick Bailey, who went to their aid, remains in a serious but stable condition.

In the Commons yesterday, former Cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith vowed to back the Prime Minister to take “the most severe action as is required” against Moscow.

He added: “This country, Russia, is now as close to being a rogue state as any. It occupies Crimea, it has helped occupy eastern Ukraine, it has created hell on earth in Syria and is even now overseeing worse action.”

Mrs May described the attack as “an indiscriminate and reckless act against the UK, putting the lives of innocent civilians at risk”.

She promised to take a “full range of appropriate responses against those who would act against our country in this way”.

She added: “We will not tolerate such a brazen attempt to murder innocent civilians on our soil.”

    This is quite a twist. It was long said in the land of the free that a person is innocent until proven guilty. The British government has made these very serious accusations against the Russian leadership. No proof is thus far presented. Rather, Russia has to prove that they didn’t do it. Guilty until proven innocent! Saying Russian agents are ‘highly likely’ or ‘most likely’ to have done this is not proof. And that other idiot in her cabinet saying Russia is a rogue state which has made life in Syria hell on earth…What? It was already hell on earth until they were invited there to remove the killers funded by the west. This poisoning is just as ‘highly likely’ to be a British intelligence or CIA operation. I would say more so. Russia has nothing to gain from doing something like this. All us little people better find a way to get control of these politicians before they blow up the planet.
