Russia fires warning shots at British ship in Black Sea
Russia yesterday fired warning shots at a British Navy destroyer in the Black Sea after it violated the country's territorial waters, the Russian defence ministry said in a statement to news agencies. According to the ministry, the incident took place off the coast of Cape Fiolent on Crimea, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014. The defence ministry added that "a border patrol ship fired warning shots" and then a Su-24 aircraft dropped four bombs along the The HMS Defender's path. The ministry said the ship left Russian waters after the shots were fired.
