Russia warned Britain on Thursday that it would bomb British warships in the Black Sea if it took further provocative actions off the coast of Crimea, according to the Reuters news agency.
Russia summoned the British ambassador in Moscow to report an official diplomatic protest after Moscow said a Royal Navy ship had entered its territorial waters, but Britain and most of the rest of the world considered it to be Ukraine’s.
Britain accused Russia today of announcing inaccurate details of an incident in the Black Sea, during which Moscow said it fired warning shots and dropped bombs on the path of the British destroyer “Defender”. It rejected Russia’s version of the incident, saying that no warning shots were fired or bombs thrown in the path of its Royal Navy destroyer “Defender”.
Russia summoned British Ambassador Debra Bronnert to report it protesting what it described as Britain’s “dangerous” actions in the Black Sea, while Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova accused London of “obvious lies”.
“We can resort to logic and demand respect for international law, and if this does not work, we can bomb,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told Russian news agencies, adding that the next time the bombs dropped “will not be only on their course, but on the target.”
“No shots were fired at (the destroyer),” British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told reporters in Singapore during a visit to discuss trade deals. It is expected.”
Russia said the British ship had penetrated about 3 kilometers into Russian waters, near Cape Violent, on the southern coast of Crimea near the port of Sevastopol, the headquarters of the Russian fleet in the Black Sea.
