MI5 head warns Europe against underestimating the Islamic State

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

The director general of MI5 Andrew Parker launched the blistering attack on Vladimir Putin's regime during a speech to European intelligence agencies in Berlin.

Russian Federation is committing "flagrant breaches of worldwide rules", the head of Britain's security service will claim Monday in which he will also stress the importance of post-Brexit security ties.

In particular, Parker pointed to Russian Federation, which has been accused of attempting to poison former spy Sergei Skripal in a state-sponsored attack in Salisbury, UK, in March of this year.

Parker is expected to call for the need to "shine a light through the fog of lies. out of their propaganda machine".

"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".

Britain 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.

Russian diplomats were expelled from the United Kingdom following the incident and 28 European nations agreed to support Mrs May's action.

Parker will argue that despite its heavy losses and retreat in Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State still presents a threat to Western democracies and "still aspires to direct devastating and more complex attacks".

He says 12 plots in the United Kingdom have been thwarted since Parliament was attacked in March 2017.

He later told reporters that since allied governments were first briefed on Russia's involvement in the attack by the British government, "the case, if anything, has got stronger since then".

The security services have foiled 12 terror plots since the Westminster attack last March, Andrew Parker will reveal.

"I am confident about our ability to tackle these threats, because of the strength and resilience of our democratic systems, the resilience of our societies and the values of we share with our European partners", he said.

He will be speaking to the Counter Terrorism Group, which comprises intelligence chiefs from 30 European domestic security services.

Mr Barnier has previously declared the United Kingdom will be cut from security and defence involvement once it leaves the EU.
