Russia has warned the United Kingdom that its warships would be bombed if the British navy acted provocatively in the Black Sea.( bomb will fall on the ship )
The threat was made by Russia last Thursday. Russia has accused British warships of provocation off the coast of Crimea.
According to the news agency Reuters, Moscow has summoned the ambassador of the United Kingdom after the warship entered the waters of Russia. A spokesman for the country’s foreign ministry said the British warship had been alerted to the shooting after it entered their waters. According to the BBC, 20 Russian planes and two Coast Guard ships were chased by the British. The incident took place near Crimea.
The Kremlin says it was entering their waters. However, the UK government has dismissed the statement.
The UK Defense Department said in a statement that the ship was operating in accordance with international law. The United Kingdom and many countries around the world claim the waters as Ukraine’s.
Russia has denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating “Similar, baseless allegations concerning Russia’s intelligence have been made more than once. They did not fire shots to warn or throw bombs at the Royal Navy defender.
Moscow, meanwhile, summoned Debra Burnett, the US ambassador to Russia, and warned of “dangerous activities in the Black Sea.” Russia’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakarova has denied the allegations in a statement issued Friday stating “Similar, baseless allegations concerning Russia’s intelligence have been made more than once.
Sergei Ryabkov, Russia’s deputy foreign minister, told Russian news agencies that “we can ask for general consideration, to show respect for international law.” But if that doesn’t work, we can bomb. “
Ryabkov warned that in the future, the bombs would hit targets, not warships.
