LIVE vom schwarzen Meer nach Warnschüssen auf britischen Zerstörer wegen Grenzverletzung



Zwischen den russischen Streitkräften und der britischen Marine ist es im Schwarzen Meer zu einem Zwischenfall gekommen.

 Ein Schiff der russischen Küstenwache und ein SU-24-Kampfflugzeug feuerten Warnschüsse in Richtung eines Zerstörers der britischen Marine ab, wie es am Mittwoch in einer von russischen Nachrichtenagenturen verbreiteten Mitteilung des Verteidigungsministeriums in Moskau hieß.

Das britische Schiff "HMS Defender" habe "eine Vorwarnung erhalten, dass Waffen eingesetzt werden, wenn die Staatsgrenzen der Russischen Föderation verletzt werden", hieß es weiter. Nach den Warnschüssen habe der Zerstörer die russischen Gewässer wieder verlassen.  


  •  The British ambassador to Russia will be summoned to the Foreign Ministry in Moscow to discuss Wednesday's incident during which a UK warship, according to Moscow, violated the Russian state border and was met with warning shots.

The incursion of the HMS Defender was reported earlier in the day by the Russian Defense Ministry. The Russian military said the British warship sailed 3km into Russian waters, near Cape Fiolent, in Crimea.

A Russian border patrol ship then fired warning shots and a Su-24m aircraft performed a warning bombing to make the British ship change course and move away, the statement said.

The Russian Defense Ministry issued a note protesting the incident to their British counterparts....RT


Минобороны России опубликовало первые кадры пролета российского самолета над британским эсминцем Defender, нарушившим границу у Крыма.

 Инцидент в Черном море произошел днем 23 июня. Британский корабль незаконно пересек границу России у мыса Фиолент. 

Чтобы остановить Defender, российские военные сделали предупредительные выстрелы и сбросили авиабомбы по курсу движения эсминца. Экипаж корабля предупредили о возможности применения оружия. 

В Британии утверждают, что эсминец якобы совершал мирный проход, но в российском Минобороны заявили, что расценивают инцидент как грубое нарушение Конвенции ООН по морскому праву 1982 года.



  1. A BBC journalist on board the British ship HMS Defender has revealed that the destroyer made a “deliberate” move in passing through Russian territorial waters “to make a point,” despite receiving warnings from the coast guard.

    The state broadcaster’s defense correspondent, Jonathan Beale, also noted that the ship’s crew heard shots, but they were believed to be “out of range.”

    In an audio report, Beale revealed that the ship purposely moved into the waters near Crimea, within 12 miles (19km) of the coast, through what the British called a “recognised international shipping lane.” The transit through Russian waters took over an hour, the correspondent said.

    “[The Russian Coast Guard] have warned the ship not to go into Crimean territorial waters, claiming that they are Russian waters,” Beale said, noting that Britain does not recognise the peninsula as Russian, but Ukrainian....RT

    1. Un periodista de la BBC realizó una llamada a bordo del buque británico que se adentró este miércoles en aguas territoriales rusos del mar Negro y confirmó las advertencias de los patrulleros rusos en medio del ruido generado por los aviones rusos que sobrevolaban la nave británica.

      "Este es otro avión ruso zumbando sobre el buque de guerra en el mar Negro. Ha habido un momento en que más de 20 aeronaves pasaron por encima del buque y ha habido advertencias de buques patrulleros de los guardacostas rusos y, de hecho, hemos oído disparos; creemos que estaban fuera de alcance", dijo el periodista Jonathan Beale en medio del ruido de un avión.

      I am on board the warship in the Black Sea.

      The crew were already at action stations as they approached the southern tip of Russian-occupied Crimea. Weapons systems on board the Royal Navy destroyer had already been loaded.

      This would be a deliberate move to make a point to Russia. HMS Defender was going to sail within the 12 mile (19km) limit of Crimea's territorial waters. The captain insisted he was only seeking safe passage through an internationally recognised shipping lane.

      Two Russian coastguard ships that were shadowing the Royal Navy warship, tried to force it to alter its course. At one stage, one of the Russian vessels closed in to about 100m.

      Increasingly hostile warnings were issued over the radio - including one that said "if you don't change course I'll fire". We did hear some firing in the distance but they were believed to be well out of range.

      As HMS Defender sailed through the shipping lane it was buzzed by Russian jets. The Captain, Vincent Owen, said the ship detected more than 20 military aircraft nearby. Commander Owen said his mission was confident but non-confrontational.

  2. More than 20 Russian aircraft and two coastguard ships have shadowed a British warship sailing near Crimea.

    Moscow's defence ministry said a patrol ship fired warning shots and a jet dropped bombs in the path of HMS Defender as it sailed some 12 miles (19km) off Crimea's coast.

    The UK government rejected Russia's account of the incident and denied that any warning shots had been fired.

    A BBC correspondent on the warship said it was harassed by Russia's military.

    Aircraft could be heard overhead as BBC defence correspondent Jonathan Beale filed a report from the deck of HMS Defender in the Black Sea as it sailed to Georgia. He described hostile warnings over the radio as the warship's crew prepared for a possible confrontation....BBC

    1. Our correspondent, who had been invited on board the ship before the incident happened, saw more than 20 aircraft overhead and two Russian coastguard boats which at times were just 100m (328ft) away.

      This is at odds with statements from both the British prime minister's office and defence ministry, which denied any confrontation.

    2. HMS Defender was sailing from Odessa in southern Ukraine to Georgia. To get there, it passed south of the Crimea peninsula, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014 in a move that has not been recognised internationally.

      While Moscow claims the peninsula and its waters are Russian territory, the UK says HMS Defender was passing through Ukrainian waters in a commonly used and internationally recognised transit route.

      A source told BBC diplomatic correspondent James Landale that the Defender was not there to pick a fight but to make a point - to assert its right to freedom of navigation in international waters.

      Russia's defence ministry said the "dangerous actions" of the navy ship entering its waters were a "gross violation" of the UN Convention's sea laws, and called for the crew to be investigated.

      A later tweet from the Russian embassy in the UK said: "HMS Defender turns HMS Provocateur and violates Russian border. Not exactly a 'routine' transit, is it?"

      But a UK government spokesman played down any notion of hostilities, insisting that Russia was doing "gunnery exercises" in the Black Sea.

      UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace added: "As is routine, Russian vessels shadowed [the ship's] passage and she was made aware of training exercises in her wider vicinity."

      The British ambassador was summoned to the Russian foreign ministry in Moscow, and met officials on Wednesday afternoon.

  3. A needless provocation by the Royal Navy or the legitimate exercising of a right of passage at sea?

    That depends on your viewpoint.

    Britain, strongly supported by Ukraine, insists that HMS Defender was taking the shortest, most direct route across the Black Sea, from Odessa, in Ukraine, to Georgia.

    But that route passes just a few miles from the shores of the Crimean peninsula which was annexed by Russia in 2014 in a move condemned by the West and never internationally recognised.

    That is not how Moscow sees it.

    Despite a raft of sanctions imposed at the time, it has portrayed its annexation of Crimea, with its significant population of ethnic Russians, as returning the peninsula to its rightful owner: Mother Russia.

    The port of Sevastopol, close to Wednesday's incident, is home to a major Russian naval base and its Black Sea fleet.....
