IS still threatens Europe, warns MI5 chief

The authorities inspecting Sergei Skripal’s home in Salisbury. The head of MI5 is expected to publicly denounce Russia today

"European intelligence cooperation today is simply unrecognizable to what it looked like five years ago", he will say, adding: "In today's uncertain world we need that shared strength more than ever".

Mr Parker accused the Russian State of carrying out a nerve agent attack in Salisbury, supporting the Syrian government despite its use of chemical weapons on civilians, invading Crimea, seeking to interfere in elections in the USA and France, attempting to mount a coup in Montenegro and carrying out cyber attacks on Western institutions.

Russian Federation is seeking to undermine European democracies with "malign activities", the MI5 chief has warned.

He said: 'We must not risk the loss of mutual capability or weakening of collective effort across Europe.

That was followed by a suicide bombing at a pop concert in Manchester which killed 22, and the following month eight people died after three Islamist militants drove into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed people at nearby restaurants and bars.

Monday's updated total brings the number of disrupted attacks in the United Kingdom to 25 since 2013.

Partial remarks of the landmark address have been released, revealing that Parker will also say Russian Federation is committing "flagrant breaches of global rules".

The partnership between Salvini and Di Maio would represent a blow to mainstream European political parties across the continent. Their choice has not yet been announced, though Di Maio said on Sunday they were close to an "historic" agreement.

"Instead of becoming a respected great nation it risks becoming a more isolated pariah", Parker said.

His daughter Yulia, 33, and a British police officer injured in the attack have both been discharged from hospital, while an investigation to identify the culprits is under way.

In a speech in Berlin on Monday, he told European intelligence agencies how Russian Federation had come up with at least 30 different explanations for the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury in March.

The UK said the Skripals were attacked with a military-grade nerve agent from the Novichok group of poisons, developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 80s.

Russia has denied any involvement in the attack and has challenged Britain to reveal evidence to back up its claim that the Russian state was likely behind it.

Parker will also condemn Kremlin disinformation following the attack - the first use of a nerve agent in Europe since World War II.

Russian officials suggested Britain had carried out the attack to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.
