Incident with a British destroyer near the occupied Crimea
The incident with the British destroyer occurred on June 23 near Cape Fiolent on the coast of the occupied Crimea.
According to the Russian side, Defender “illegally entered the territorial waters of the Russian Federation.” The Russian Defense Ministry said that the ship was expelled by warning shots and bombing.
The British Ministry of Defense replied that the bombing was not carried out, and the shooting was accepted by the crew for artillery training.
On June 24, Boris Johnson commented on the “shelling” of the British destroyer by the Russians. He stated that he had passed through Ukrainian territorial waters and had done the right thing by choosing a route near the occupied Crimea. Johnson reminded that London does not recognize the annexation of Crimea and the Russian affiliation of these waters.
The media later reported that the final decision on the passage of the British destroyer HMS Defender near the shores of the Russian-occupied Crimea was made by Johnson.
