BBC journalist reports from British warship as Russia “fires warning shots” – BBC News

Tensions have escalated sharply between Russia and the United Kingdom, on the seas off the coast of Crimea.

More than 20 Russian aircraft and two coastguard ships were shadowing a British warship, HMS Defender, when the Russians claim they’ve fired warning shots and dropped bombs in the path of the British ship, accusing it of violating Russian territorial waters. The British deny that account.

Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and claims the peninsula and its waters are Russian territory. However the UK says HMS Defender was passing through Ukrainian waters, in an internationally recognised route.

The only broadcast journalist on board HMS Defender was from the BBC.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Jonathan Beale, who describes the hostile warnings from Russia and HMS Defender’s response the confrontation.
