UK Keeps a Close Eye on Russian Warship

The UK Ministry of Defence has confirmed that it is monitoring Russian warships as they sail through the English Channel.

Russian Udaloy class destroyer Severomorsk, along with two of its support vessels, is on a return journey from the Mediterranean. The vessels entered the Channel this morning and are expected to leave it later.

Even though Russia reported the vessels would conduct anti-aircraft and anti-submarine drills, the Ministry said on its social media website that there was no evidence of such operations.

Plymouth-based HMS Argyll, assisted by its Lynx helicopter, is tracking the vessels.
