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.

  1. Russia won't dona thing. They know it would be their demise. Still though…they feel they have to puff out their chest but it's laughable.

  2. Russians dont play games! They mean it, when they say it. The world needs Russia on their side. If Russia were to go over to china, Iran and North Korea, then we are going to get problems we cannot imagine in our wildest fantacies. Very stupid to confront them to prove a point. What has it changed on the ground? Show the world what it changed more than push Russia closer to above mentioned nations. The USA at least had sense to back down when Russia said they are going to conduct live fire exciseres.

  3. Imagine Russian warships sailed into Scottish, Welsh or N.Ireland's territorial waters. Crimea belongs to Russia. It was given to Ukraine by a Ukrainian President in the Kremlin.
    Russia has fools as leaders. It should recognize the independence of the three other countries in the UK as punishment for interfering in Russia's and the Ukraine's internal affairs. An eye for an eye.

  4. Disgusting that the British government would put all them young men and women in the position and I think if Russia didn't heve valdemar putin as there leader that ship would have been blown out of the sea for sure thank god

  5. in Vietnam bbc vietnamese has been against our country continuously for nearly 50 years with every dirty trick , fake new they can think of and sometimes very bull shit !

  6. Stealth technology was thrown to America by Russia through a magazine. Study history . Also, for many here it may be a discovery that the Russian tsar saved America from France and England. But this is a fact. A hidden but accessible fact.

  7. if Russia sank our boat we would do nothing like when Iran boarded our ship we stood and watched we are just a barking dog np bite.

  8. Russia is giving answers to them who think they're guardian of this world and can do whatever they want

  9. THE UNITED KINGDOM WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED BY RUSSIA, WARNING SHOTS ONLY BRINGS A HILARIOUS RESPONSE ON BOARD; HOWEVER, SHOULD RUSSIA FIRE ON A BRITISH WARSHIP, IT WILL RECEIVE A MORE SERVER RESPONSE AND THEY SHOULD KNOW THIS BY THREATENING A WARSHIP!!! THE WORLD IS WELL AWARE THAT BOTH CHINA AND RUSSIA ARE BULLIES WHEN TRYING SECURE AN ILLEGAL CLAIM OF A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY AND THE UNITED KINGDOM WILL NOT HEAR OF IT NOR TOLERATE…THE WORLD IS FED UP WITH THESE AUTHORITARIAN DICTATORSHIP!!! THE WORLD IS EXPECTING A JUSTIFIED REVOLT WITH IN BOTH COUNTRIES TO RESCUE THEIR PEOPLE!!!

  10. How stupid of the British navy.
    Send your people to die
    They were so close to every damn fleet and coastal defense systems

  11. Ah Russia is playing mind games showing off, acting strong and brave yet still the "Joke' . – History101

  12. First of all, wtf are you doing in their area and the last thing, don't play with Russia because they don't play
