- May said that if Russia didn’t respond that it would consider the attack an “unlawful use of force” on Russia’s part.
- Two analysts separately told Business Insider that NATO getting involved is unlikely, but that the UK will probably impose sanctions on Russia and expel some of its diplomats to deter Moscow from such actions in the future.
- One analyst even said that the UK might not even participate in the World Cup this summer.
