The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Russia releases video allegedly showing HMS Defender from Russian aircraft” – below is their description.
The Russian Defence Ministry released footage which it claims shows a Royal Navy vessel being “chased out” after it alleged it had entered Russia’s territorial waters in the Black Sea.
A border patrol boat fired warning shots at HMS Defender and a Su-24M warplane dropped four bombs close to the ship, the Defence Ministry said in a statement reported by the Russian Interfax news agency.
HMS Defender left Russian waters soon afterwards, having ventured as much as 3 kilometres (2 miles) inside, the ministry said. The incident took place in the northwestern part of the Black Sea.
However, Downing Street has said it is “incorrect” to say that the Navy destroyer was fired upon or that the ship was in Russian waters.
