Don’t trust the UK military

It may be useful to know that in the future, the Russian military is more reliable than the UK military:

This is the moment a Russian jet buzzed low over HMS Defender as it sailed past Crimea on Wednesday, before warning shots and bombs were allegedly fired in the Royal Navy destroyer’s path after it was accused of crossing into territorial waters.

The British Type 45 destroyer was told, ‘If you don’t change course I’ll fire,’ after it entered the 12-mile limit of Crimea’s territorial waters near Cape Fiolent in the Black Sea.

Moscow boasted that an Su-24 dropped four bombs in the vessel’s path after it refused to back down and warning shots were fired from their patrol ship, but Britain has flatly denied the claims, saying the destroyer stayed in international waters and no shots were fired.

The Ministry of Defence and Number 10 insist the incident never happened, adding that Russia was carrying out pre-arranged exercises and Defender was conducting an ‘innocent passage through Ukrainian territorial waters’.   

That was from the Daily Mail on June 23rd. One day later, the Russian military released a pair of videos, clearly showing that the destroyer entered Russian waters and that warning shots were fired at it.

Unseen footage of Russian coast guard interaction with HMS Defender ASKING where they should maneuver – ignoring commands -then got shot at & left the waters / UK MOD claimed that Russians fired no warning shots – here’s UK Navy responding to warning they’ll be fired at.

If you don’t understand why the Royal Navy is provoking the much-bigger Russian Navy, you should recall that the Conservative Party is as influenced by the British version of AIPAC as the Republican and Democratic Parties are.
