Russian Warships Escorted Through English Channel By British Navy

“It’s a clear and military signal that Russia is back on the international stage,” said Peter Roberts, a senior research fellow for sea power and maritime studies at the Royal United Services Institute.

The ships are sailing in international waters, so NATO forces such as those of Norway, the Netherlands and Britain will watch them go past without challenge.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said alliance navies would monitor the Russian ships “in a responsible and measured way.”
