Great Britain expressed its most powerful support ever of Russia's military operation against Chechen separatists. This is the way influential British newspaper The Times commented on British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw's Wednesday talks in Moscow. The newspaper notes Straw said in the Russian capital that Moscow is faced with "a real threat of terrorism" emanating from militants seeking Chechnya's separation from Russia, and that it presents a serious threat to national security.
