Russia criticizes the “dangerous” British interceptions of the Black Sea Air Force

Russia accused the Royal Air Force (RAF) of intercepting its military aircraft over the Black Sea in a dangerous manner designed to provoke Moscow after the RAF made two interceptions of this type in a single week.

The accusation, made by the Russian embassy in London, came after the RAF intercepted a Russian maritime patrol plane over the Black Sea on Friday and fought to intercept two Russian fighter jets suspected on Wednesday.

What kind of threat does a Russian patrol ship pose to Britain or its allies hypothetically while driving flights near the Russian coast itself, more than 2,000 km (1242.74 miles) from the British Isles? The Russian embassy said in a statement issued on Saturday.

Relations between London and Moscow are languishing in a post-Cold War period after poisoning by the nerve agent of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March in the English city of Salisbury.

London blames Moscow for the attack, something that Russia denies.

The British RAF maintains a presence in the Baltic countries and in Romania to deter possible Russian military action after the annexation of Crimea in Ukraine in 2014. Moscow says that its activity in the Black Sea region is routine and complies with international law .
