Fake attacks Russian fighter planes on Dutch navy ship Black Sea

Repeatedly harassed

‘The planes repeatedly harassed the Everts between about 3.30 pm and 8.30 pm local time. They flew dangerously low and close by, performing feint attacks. The fighters were armed with bombs and so-called air-to-surface missiles, intended to fire at a target from the air. After the hours of intimidation, there were also disruptions to the electronic equipment of the Everts’, according to the ministry.

‘Right to free use of the sea’

The Russian actions violated the right to the free use of the sea. In addition, they go against mutual agreements, as laid down in the INCSEA treaty. The agreement must prevent unsafe situations at sea.

No reason

Commander Zr.Ms. Evertsen captain-lieutenant at sea George Pastoor: ‘Zr.Ms. Evertsen sailed on the open sea in international waters. There was no reason whatsoever for these aggressive actions. Despite this, the mock attacks continued for several hours. It was irresponsible and unsafe behavior at sea.’

‘Irresponsible’

Minister Ank Bijleveld-Schouten calls the Russian actions ‘irresponsible’. ‘Sr.Ms. Evertsen has every right to sail there. There is no justification whatsoever for this kind of aggressive action, which also unnecessarily increases the risk of accidents. The Netherlands will address Russia about this.’

Carrier Strike Group

Sr.Ms. Evertsen is part of the UK Carrier Strike Group. The air defense and command frigate patrols the Black Sea with the British HMS Defender. The ships practice with allies from the region and visit some ports.

    “The Russian actions violated the right to the free use of the sea. In addition, they go against mutual agreements, as laid down in the INCSEA treaty. The agreement must prevent unsafe situations at sea.”
    Why is everyone so girly and too afraid to knock down such an idiot? It’s irrelevant that it is a mafiosi plane. No, this makes it even more meaningful.

    • As the saying goes, Russians will push until they meet steel, it continues to this day. Bullies do not stop until they see their own blood. This is what needs to happen to Putin. He ignores laws, traditions, norms and diplomacy. At the G7 they should have come up with a better response but I think its time to completely exclude the French and German assgivers. Then formulate an ultimatum and have NATO enforce it. They are, after all, a fucking treaty organization aren’t they? Or are they just another European pension club?
