  1. They (the Russians) and us (the RN) have been playing this game for decades. In the 70s/80s and 90s we always had a frigate alongside on permanent standby for exactly this reason (known as FCS1- Fleet Contingency Ship).

  2. Russian warships seem to have a talent for sinking themselves, the UK navy can relax.

    The 1 Russian aircraft carrier has to limp around with a fleet of tugboats and repair ships.

  3. As long as the Russian warships are staying outside Uk’s territorial water and inside international water, I don’t see any problem with it. Yet another pointless fearmongering.

  4. Putin wants his warships and their crews out of port to ride out the virus.

  5. This disease will devastate the world’s economy, what will follow is what usually follows after such economic crisis…. War

  6. Isn’t there some kind of exercise they are running right now? For the life of me I don’t understand why it wasn’t cancelled.

  7. Can’t people train anymore?

  8. Why do they report this shit. Its literally what we always do. I mean its literally a russian pilots initiation to fly close to british airspace and get chased away. Happens everyday

  9. Don’t you guys get tired of these fake fearmongering post that the British MOD and the right wing media likes to peddle every other month?. What they fail to mention to you is that the Russian navy was simply passing through the channel on their way to the Syrian naval base in Tartus, they were navigating through international waters minding their business. The UK MOD loves nothing more than quickly dispatching it’s ships to shadow the Russian fleet as they pass by in international waters, send some pictures to The Daily Mail, Sky & The Sun Newspaper to feed the usual fearmongering. The PR works, it keeps people in fear, it makes Russia looks like it is trying to provoke the UK and defense budgets keep nicely bloated.

  10. Not gonna lie, this is unsettling.
