      The ships arrived to irradiate the Scots and zombie them to secede from Britain.

            Not that they got in and registered. In the Baltic, or in the North Sea, if you throw a stick, you will definitely end up on a NATO reconnaissance ship. Norwegian, English, or just American. Obviously, they have such a job, so don't let them complain.

    Britain is concerned about the emergence of Russian reconnaissance ships off the coast of Scotland.

    And she, meanwhile, was going to build her own military base on the Black Sea coast of Ukraine, under the guise of building armored boats. And if it has its own base, then Montreux convection will not spread to it. The NATO base in Sevastopol "broke off", they decided to enter from the other side. The British have been playing for the future all their lives.

      hi In fact, they are there, in their opinion, for ensuring freedom of peaceful navigation... But from such an understanding of my mission in the World Cup, I already opened my mouth belay

    It's just that the North Atlantic begins from the shores of England, which they did not know. Start to contain Russia, otherwise North Cape, North Cape. By the way, the Severomorsk BPK went on a well-deserved rest? am

      The North Atlantic just starts off the coast of England

      Two Poseidons are underwater. One Poseidon says to another: these Faroes are tired. Let's better go to the English Channel - you are from the north, and I am from the south ..

        Farrers have something for that. Once a year they kill dolphins for their pleasure, it's just pleasure. The Danes have nothing to do with them. They have not yet answered for the giraffe Marcus.

    Great Britain is concerned ...
    Aren't you concerned about the coronavirus? Show more concern about your own affairs and less poke at Russia, covering up your internal problems with "concern". And it's not a sin to watch your Poseidon (s), otherwise they cleared it out with other NATO planes to fly to Crimea.
