The chief of the UK Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), Alex Younger, will deliver a rare public speech on Monday, during which he will reiterate a batch of London’s accusations against Russia and urge it not to “underestimate” the United Kingdom and its allies, according to excerpts of his speech in the UK media.

“[We] urge Russia or any other state intent on subverting our way of life not to underestimate our determination and our capabilities, or those of our allies,” Younger is set to say at St Andrew’s University, as quoted by The Telegraph newspaper.

Younger is also expected to stress the importance of keeping strong security ties with the European Union in light of Brexit, and note that it was such cooperation that has helped to avert  “multiple” terrorist attacks in Europe.
