To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have, if any, to undertake, and report on, an investigation into the government of Russia's alleged (1) use of poisoning and assassination, (2) media manipulation, (3) abuse of Interpol procedures, and (4) efforts to undermine international law and institutions in ways that are harmful to UK security.

We continue to challenge Russia's malign activity and abuse of the international rules-based system and remain at the forefront of those opposing that abuse.

In response to the attack in Salisbury, together with our allies, we coordinated the largest ever collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers, fundamentally degrading Russian intelligence capability for years to come. We also challenge Russia's actions in Ukraine, in Syria, the Western Balkans and in cyber space. The United Kingdom is committed to playing a leading role in continuing sanctions against Russia. Sanctions are one of a range of measures we have taken, in concert with others, to defend our security and enhance our capabilities against Russia's malign activity.
