London: British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said on Tuesday that Russia could once again pose the greatest threat to Britain`s security, adding the country`s spy agencies were stepping up efforts to counter this.

"We are in familiar territory for anyone over the age of about 50 with Russia`s aggressive behaviour a stark reminder it has the potential to pose the single greatest threat to our security," Hammond said in a speech in London.

"Hence continuing to gather intelligence on Russia capabilities and intentions will remain a vital part of our intelligence effort for the foreseeable future. It is no coincidence that all of our agencies are recruiting Russian speakers again."
