“We’re able to detecting any underwater, above-water, airborne enemy and, if required, perform an unpreventable strike in opposition to it,” Putin stated talking at a navy day parade in St Petersburg.
Putin’s phrases observe an incident within the Black Sea in June when Russia stated it had fired warning pictures and dropped bombs within the path of a British warship to chase it out of Crimea waters.
Britain rejected Russia’s account of the incident, saying it believed any pictures fired have been a pre-announced Russian “gunnery train”, and that no bombs had been dropped.
Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 however Britain and many of the world recognise the Black Sea peninsula as a part of Ukraine, not Russia.
Putin stated final month Russia might have sunk the British warship HMS Defender, that it accused of illegally getting into its territorial waters, with out beginning World War Three and stated the United States performed a job within the “provocation”.
