"Followed through Ukrainian waters": Britain refused to acknowledge the fact of expelling the destroyer from the Crimea region

88

Britain refused to admit the fact of the expulsion of the destroyer type 45 Dragon Royal fleet Great Britain from Russian waters near Crimea. The corresponding statement was made in the British Ministry of Defense.


According to the statement, there was no incident in October 2020 involving a British destroyer near Crimea. HMS Dragon was heading from Odessa to Batumi following a "recognized safe route" through Ukrainian waters. There was no interference from the Russian Navy, the destroyer proceeded freely near the peninsula.

The ship was not a party to any incident, it exercised the right of harmless passage under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea

- stated in the UK Department of Defense.

It is emphasized that the HMS Dragon command considered the waters in the Crimea region as Ukrainian, since they did not recognize Crimea as Russian.

Earlier, the FSB told about an incident with a British destroyer near Crimea, when HMS Dragon crossed the Russian border near Cape Chersonesos. The British were demanded to immediately leave our water area, but from the destroyer board they referred to poor signal reception. For the expulsion of the British from Russian waters, a corresponding operation was carried out by the forces of the Border Guard Service, the Navy and the Russian Aerospace Forces.

      Command with a clever look hangs over the side and carefully examines the waters through a monocle. Precisely, since they saw the pig's shit, everything is Ukrainian!

        Until there is a real force in the form of a real warship, the British will continue to lay the bolt.

        You need to have the will to demonstrate your intention to protect your territories. Including water areas.
        You need to be able to demonstrate intentions.

        The trough in the form of project 22460 PSKR can only create the appearance of presence.
        Work as a buoy - show the route to the border violator.

        The destroyer will simply ignore his presence, for 22460 does not pose any real threat.


        Thank God, we stopped the purchase of this junk.

        But nothing good has yet been proposed.



        And for those who think that you can stop the intruder with Ball, Bastion or Aerospace Forces planes, I will answer

        1. - the goal is not the capture of Crimea, but a demonstration of non-recognition of Crimea by the Russians.
        2. - a demonstrative passage in the territorial waters of Russia near the Crimea will not lead to the destruction of the intruder's ship.
        3 - the provocation was successful. On this there was a long silence.

        You need to be able to admit your mistakes and correct the situation.


        The border service of the FSB is responsible for the protection of territorial waters.
        But they have nothing to protect.

          For example, recently an absolutely similar case took place in the Peter the Great Gulf. The American destroyer "John McCain" entered the territorial waters of the Russian Federation, the BOD of the Pacific Fleet Admiral Vinogradov went to cut it and expelled him.
          Why a similar case? The Americans do not recognize the Peter the Great Gulf as the internal waters of the Russian Federation, but the BOD "Admiral Vinogradov" does not belong to the FSB

        In this case, let the dry cargo ship meet him (the old trough, the steering gear is dead, well, it happens), so that he would not miss it, if it does not sink after that, then the plant will stand for a year if not written off.

          Well, things are getting worse and worse with the "true" patriots and their assets in England. Russian money is now considered toxic and is checked 10 times for "purity", which creates great inconvenience. Abramovich is generally not allowed out to London to watch the matches of his beloved Chelsea. The most insulting is that all these obstacles are being built by the British themselves, and not by our government , although I doubt very much that it is ours hi

      Totally agree with you!
      Just put a little "make-up" on our warship:
      1. Hang on board an a-a-agrarian rag of a bluish-dry color - like the ukropitek flag.
      2. Sailors for the duration of the operation (immersion of the Naglo-Saxon "lizard" in the waters of the Black Sea for the very "and do not swim here") in embroidered shirts.
      3. In addition to the PRK, throw another missile on board the enemy's "boat" - with a "cultural" load: bits of bacon, bunches of dill and a bunch of garlic.
      In general: to notify the world community that the dragon was sunk by "garni cottonies with-in-na-ukraine", and "damn Muscovites"!

    To expel the British from Russian waters, the corresponding operation was carried out

    Obviously, the operation to expel the British destroyer ball is not "appropriate" enough, otherwise it would have become known immediately, and not six months later. And the destroyer itself should have been arrested, so that they would forever remember where and whose territorial waters.

    Someone can explain what kind of wording this is: "The ship was not a participant in any incident, he used the right harmless passage under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. "
    Interpretation: The bloodthirsty border guards of the Russian Federation put pressure on the harmless military destroyer ... And as for the recognition or non-recognition of Crimea as the territory of Russia, these problems will concern only those who do not recognize it. The axiom, however, is in accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation and the Law on the State Border of the Russian Federation.

    It's a pity that the mine did not float peacefully there. By the way, this is not a ball of a peaceful passage, since 100% of information was collected, for example, about radar systems, which means that such a passage is not peaceful and may be prohibited. The radar is on, everything must be expelled.

    Hmm ... the FSB obviously wanted to talk about its prowess .. and the shaves - shaved off ...)) Of course, this whole story surfaced at the right time .. everyone is waiting for a repeat, obviously .. Who will have stronger nerves .. In general, unrecognized the international community Crimea quite allows itself to commit such antics as the passage of ships and flights of aircraft over the "territory of Ukraine" .. The main thing here is the fortress of testicles .. They will not drown or shoot down anyone .. they will substitute the sides. accompany - they will. It won't go further.

    It seems that both sides express only the part of the event that is convenient for them))) Well, this is always the case, so I don't really bother looking for the truth. #the truth is somewhere near

    If there was a team, it would work as it should. Apparently someone has a bench press in one place.

    And they do not know that in the "Ukrainian" waters near the Crimea, a large number of non-trapped anchor mines from the Second World War ... they risked, they risked. winked

    If the British were really driven out of the Russian terrorist forces in 1920 m, the incident would not have passed without noise. And what did you suddenly remember a year later? Either the PSKR of the Russian Federation really missed it, or did not go at all, but passed the 12 mile zone ABROAD

    In reality, it was necessary to put a couple of shells exactly on the course and one in the nose (Krasnopol).

    Britain refused to admit the fact of the expulsion of the destroyer
    To recognize is to drop the "honor of the uniform." How so, someone, and even more so the Russians dared to expel the glorious English ship. This cannot be because it cannot be.
    he exercised the right harmless passage
    Costs of translation or did you go through the shopping mall so as not to offend anyone? The fact that they do not recognize Crimea as Russian is their business, but if you please do not violate the borders of Russia in the region of Crimea.

    The Royal Navy today categorically denied Russian claims that the British destroyer was "driven" from the Crimean coast by the forces of Vladimir Putin. 
    The alleged incident took place in October off the coast of Crimea, but was only made public now.
    Moscow argued that HMS Dragon had ignored "warnings" not to enter "Russian territorial waters" and warplanes and ships were sent to move it.
    The Department of Defense told MailOnline that the claim was "completely untrue."
    “HMS Dragon was the most direct route between the two ports visited, following the recognized safe route for all international traffic in Ukrainian waters,” the spokesman said.
    "The Russian Navy did not interfere with the passage of the HMS Dragon. It sailed without incident, exercising our right of passage in accordance with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea," he added.

    The ship was not a party to any incident, it exercised the right of harmless passage under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea


    Of course you could see everything from London, but did the commander report to you?

    Well, we "expelled" them in an unknown way, and they spit in our faces. And, in general, rightly so, let them minus me. We must act boldly and with lightning speed so that not a single ship can boast that it has entered our waters and left without damage.

    It is painful to admit, but the response of the British is MORE POWERFUL 20 times than the fact of expulsion.
    It is sad that we were informed about this fact of expulsion so late, and the expulsion was also too gentle.
    Ehhh Where are the captains - legends of the 80s ..... WHERE BULK ???

    HMS Dragon was heading from Odessa to Batumi following a "recognized safe route" through Ukrainian waters.
    Interestingly, the explosion of the next "guest" on the "mine of the Great Patriotic War" in the "Ukrainian waters" will not affect the safety of routes near the Crimea? winked

    Britain seems to have phantom pains, still consider itself a country that someone reckons with.
