Russia defends sending warships through English Channel

“Russian ships sailing through the English Channel pose no threat to the United Kingdom, according to Russia’s diplomatic corps. ‘The Russian naval ships act under international law and strictly observe the operating laws for the passing of military ships through the English Channel; they do not pose any threat to Great Britain,’ the Russian Embassy in London said in a Wednesday bulletin. ‘The British side is well aware of this fact.’ Russia’s newest frigate sailed through the Channel while being shadowed by a British mine-hunting ship and a military helicopter, the Royal Navy announced Tuesday. That report coincided with the implementation of U.S. sanctions on Russia stemming from the use of a chemical weapon in the attempted assassination of a former Russian military intelligence officer who spied on behalf of the United Kingdom, an incident that sparked a diplomatic crisis amid broader tensions between Russia and the West.”
