Managed Confrontation UK Policy Towards Russia After the Salisbury Attack

One of the missions of the BFPG is to provide easy access to relevant UK foreign policy information. As well as publishing our own independent work, we provide a hub of the latest UK foreign policy related publications.

In this latest by publication by Chatham House’s Russia and Eurasia Programme, Duncan Allan analyses the links between the Salisbury attack in March with the murder of Aleksandr Litvinenko. The paper argues that the UK could have adopted a more robust foreign policy against Russia following the Litvinenko case to prevent the Salisbury attack from taking place. A core theme throughout the paper is that the UK must do more to ensure that Britain’s rhetoric against Russia is matched by a clear policy agenda that affirms the UK’s position towards Russia. Duncan Allan recommends that moving forward the UK should assess the effectiveness of taking multilateral action against Russia, as opposed to unilateral actions in order to protect British citizens against further threats from Russia.
