Scotland's papers: Russia's world order threat

Theresa May has launched a "searing" attack on Russia, says the i newspaper, accusing Moscow of attempting to undermine Western society before warning Vladimir Putin: "We know what you are doing and you will not succeed."

The Times writes that the prime minister made her most outspoken attack on Russia for using fake news to "sow discord" in Britain and other western nations.

Meanwhile, Mrs May said Russia was waging a "campaign of cyber espionage and disruption", including hacking the German parliament and the Danish defence ministry, according to the Daily Mail.

In other news, the UK Parliament will be given a "take it or leave it" vote on Brexit after ministers agreed to enshrine the deal in law in a "significant government concession", according to The Daily Telegraph.

The SNP ended a brief pause in Scotland's constitutional debate last night, pledging to hold a second independence referendum if the UK government pushes ahead with Brexit without consent from Holyrood, reports The Scotsman.

On the same story, The National writes that if Mrs May fails to obtain the consent of the Scottish Parliament for her EU Withdrawal Bill, but continues to take Scotland out of the EU, then there will need to be a second referendum on independence.
