May told Putin in a speech that Britain was ready to fight back against attempts to destabilize Western democracy that she said included "meddling in elections", Bloomberg reported. "Russian Federation can, and I hope one day will, choose this different path", she said.

"Russia has repeatedly violated the national airspace of several European countries and mounted a sustained campaign of cyber espionage and disruption".

British Prime Minister, Theresa May has taken a strong approach to Russia's foreign policies.

"The UK will do what is necessary to protect ourselves, and work with our allies to do likewise", she warned.

The prime minister said that a good Brexit deal would help to underpin Europe's commitment to free societies, but said that the United Kingdom was "unconditionally committed to maintaining Europe's security". "We know what you are doing". She said that a pledge to uphold the worldwide order sounds particularly "cynical" given British action in Iraq and Libya that "caused suffering of millions and destabilized entire regions".

She believes that President Putin should be called out for the threat she believes he poses both internationally and in the UK.

And she announced that the Government was looking into tightening financial regimes to ensure profits of corruption can not flow to Russian Federation.

Meanwhile, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson faced questions after a photograph emerged of him alongside Joseph Mifsud, a Maltese academic who is caught up in the US investigation into Russian influence on the presidential election, amid allegations that he said he had access to "dirt" on Hilary Clinton.

May also stressed the need to improve relations with Russian Federation to avoid a return to the Cold War, saying: "While we must beware, we also want to engage".

"As a permanent member of the UN Security Council, Russia has the reach and the responsibility to play a vital role in promoting worldwide stability".

"Russia can, and I hope one day will, choose this different path. But for as long as Russian Federation does not, we will act together to protect our interests and the global order on which they depend".

Ms. May's comments - the latest in a series of critical statements on the US including over its decision to withdraw from the Paris Treaty - comes amid a host of questions in Britain relating to Russian involvement in domestic politics.

In Mrs May's speech, she also said the authorities in Myanmar - formerly known as Burma - must take "full responsibility" for what "looked like ethnic cleansing" of the Rohingya people in Rakhine province.
