It became known about the invasion of the British destroyer into the territorial waters of Russia


Some kind of provocation can be expected from Western "partners" at any moment. For example, there were details about the incursion of a British warship into Russian territorial waters, about which little was known to the general public.


It should be noted that in December 2020, the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Alexander Fomin, during an interview "Russian newspaper" mentioned the passage of a British warship through the territorial waters of Russia in the area of ​​Cape Chersonesos. However, there was no serious media coverage of this incident.

On May 27, 2021, the head of the Russian Border Service - First Deputy Director of the FSB of Russia Vladimir Kulishov said RIA Newsthat in October last year, his subordinates, together with the forces of the Russian Navy and the Russian Aerospace Forces, had to escort the "guest" - the British destroyer HMS Dragon (D35 - in service since 2012), which "got lost" in the Black Sea near the Crimean coast.

So, on October 13, 2020, despite the received warning about the inadmissibility of entering the territorial waters of Russia, the destroyer URO D35 Dragon of the British Navy crossed the state border of the Russian Federation in the area of ​​Cape Chersonesos in the Black Sea, using the right of innocent passage. In response to demands to immediately leave the territorial sea of ​​Russia, the captain of the destroyer announced poor signal reception. As a result of joint actions with the Russian Navy and the Russian Aerospace Forces, the warship was expelled into neutral waters

- clarified the head of the Border Service.

Kulishov drew attention to the fact that the West regularly and unsubstantiatedly accuses Moscow of "aggressiveness" and at the same time carries out unfriendly activities towards Russia, including of a military nature. However, Russian border guards are ready for such challenges and will not allow their country's sovereignty to be violated.

Note that the HMS Dragon is the only Royal Navy ship adorned with an image (on each side of the bow) of a red Welsh dragon, so it is easy to identify. Also recently from London informed about the "historical moment of the revival of the aircraft carrier fleet."

On May 16, the British Navy patrol ship Trent ("Trent") entered the Black Sea, which immediately headed to Odessa to demonstrate their support for Kiev. On May 26, the joint naval exercises of the ships of Great Britain and Ukraine took place.

      To be honest, at first I did not understand that there was a red blot on his face.
      The impression is that he was given a sniff and the soup began to flow.

    Those who violate the border should not be “sent off”, but detained. In case of disobedience, destroy

    How was it really?
    "The British Navy responds to Moscow's claims that it drove the HMS Dragon out of Russian waters."

    Last night, the Royal Navy was forced to refute Russian claims that the British destroyer had been driven out of Crimean waters.
    Moscow claimed that the Type 45 destroyer ignored "warnings" not to enter "Russian territorial waters" in October last year. General Kulishov said: “The British Navy destroyer Dragon has crossed the state border of the Russian Federation in the area of ​​Cape Chersonesos in the Black Sea.
    However, the Defense Department called the charges "totally untrue."
    The Telegraph learned that a warship passed through the Black Sea from Odessa in Ukraine to Batumi in Georgia. A Whitehall source added that since the UK does not recognize Russian sovereignty over Crimea, the waters around Crimea are not considered Russian territorial waters. A Defense Ministry spokesman said: “HMS Dragon has chosen the most direct route between the two port visits, following the recognized safe route for all international traffic in Ukrainian waters. “The Russian Navy did not interfere with the passage of the HMS Dragon ship. It passed without incident, exercising our right of innocent passage in accordance with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

    Congratulations to the Russians on another patriotic fake, thanks to which something in the blood rises, which, in turn, will lead to an increase in the birth rate of the dying population!

      Ay, thanks! They opened our eyes ... And we, "dark people", did not know ... "Enlightener" you are ours ...

      Well, the fact that the British do not feed honey, let’s sip some sadistic provokashka. "We do not recognize" ... That is why we go, pretending to be fools, if only then to masturbate with the whole galley on a letter from the main sadist .. Hello, fools! You don't need to pretend at all. This is superfluous. You already ...

      Just ask yourself once ... And if not us, who will regret you, the poor !?

      After all, the next time the finger may "flinch". Well, they confused it, like with a target, which should come up right now and should. You will also answer us for the Indians, and for Julian Asange, ... and for
