Media: the British fleet is unable to accompany Russian ships

56
British media criticized the country's royal fleet. The Navy was criticized for the fact that Russian warships passing through the English Channel were accompanied by a helicopter and a patrol ship, reports The Telegraph.


According to experts, the lack of British fleet a frigate to escort Russian ships questions the Royal Navy's ability to respond to potential threats.

Media: the British fleet is unable to accompany Russian ships


A spokesman for the British Defense Ministry in response to criticism stated:

We always use suitable vessels for these tasks, and if you look at the photos of the (Russian) flotilla, you will see that the patrol ship was the right choice for this occasion. We have at our disposal a frigate, but we do not use it every time, but when the need arises. Common sense takes over


Earlier it was reported that a Russian convoy consisting of the large landing ship Alexander Otrakovsky, the communications vessel Fedor Golovin and the tanker Yelnya proceeded through the English Channel. To escort them, Britain sent a guard ship Mersey and a Wildcat helicopter. The convoy followed to the Severomorsk base after completing tasks in the Mediterranean as part of the permanent grouping of the Russian Navy, RT reports

        News?
        It has long been known to all that the Russian army, by snot, piles on WHOLE is pleasing. That's what they are afraid of, and from there squeals .....

          I agree with you! True, for some reason this is not taken into account, neither the Turks who lost our plane (two?), Nor the United States and Israel, which bomb our military allies with impunity. Americans are insolent to impossible, they are already killing our PMCs! Apparently they are not at all afraid of the third world! Or maybe they just know that there will be no answer?
          It is rather a claim not to the army, but to the leadership. A flock of wolves controlled by a sheep is weaker than a herd of sheep controlled by a wolf.

            I did not serve in PMCs, they were not in the USSR Armed Forces. I fought for my homeland. On four continents, in 18 countries. But he saw "full contact" in Kandahar in American hand-to-hand instructors - the authorities ordered "to establish contacts." Well, after the second glass, the special forces begin to fight in their arms, and after the third - to look for the enemy ... Well, they’ve "found." ... They aren’t fighters, they’ve been so quick to paint ..... Rambo dicks ... Our kid-conscript of two majors and their colonel in the "circle" knocked out. I was dumb, but they took it "weakly" - it came out ... "Argentina-Jamaica 6-0" ... The total score was 9-1. You understand where .... Friendship won. Soviet-American ...

          You, Stas, are a definite plus for your attentiveness hi ! Good advice for the future - listen and read everything, filter the main things on the wire, and wash away the garbage with Kizlyara cognac, (Ordzhonikidze, 60) I tried vodka - it doesn’t wash it off the wire, it’s only worse. And Kizlyaksky "Russian" five holes - that's great! Drink Kizlyar (just do not confuse Ordzhonikidze with the Communist !!!!!!!!!!!!) And everything will be nishtyak ... drinks

    Let them answer themselves "Why do we need to escort Russian ships at all?"
