Report: Russia Summons British Envoy Over Ukraine Drone Attack In Crimea

1 min read


In response to #Moscow’s assertion that members of the British military took part in a Ukrainian drone strike on the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Crimea, #Russia summoned the British ambassador on Thursday.

Shortly after 1030 local time (0730 GMT), Ambassador Deborah Bronner arrived at the foreign ministry while a small group of protesters brandished signs that read, “Britain is a terrorist state” and screamed anti-British slurs.

According to a Reuters correspondent on the scene, Ms. Bronnert spent about 30 minutes inside the ministry. Neither Russia nor Britain made an early comment on the specifics of what was discussed.

The ambassador will be called in relation to the drone attack on Crimea on Saturday, which Russia carried out after annexing the peninsula from Ukraine in 2014.

The claims, according to Britain, are untrue. Following the drone assault, Russia briefly halted its involvement in a Black Sea Grain agreement that was mediated by the U.N.

President Vladimir Putin accuses Britain of being a particularly treacherous Western force that is attempting to obliterate Russia and divide up its enormous natural riches.

Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the United States, the European Union, and Britain levied some of the harshest sanctions in history and sent weaponry to Ukraine.

The Nord Stream gas pipelines were allegedly destroyed by British navy troops, according to the Russian defense ministry. London dismissed this assertion as baseless and an attempt to deflect attention from Russian military missteps in Ukraine.
