LONDON, 25 Aug — RIA Novosti, Denis Voroshilov. Use of fighters by Britain for escort of the Russian planes over the Black Sea is a provocative and dangerous step, the press secretary of Embassy of Russia in Great Britain.© has said the Photo: the press service of the Navy In embassy the Minister of Defence Gavin Williamson and other British politicians presenting to the public routine actions of the Russian side as "provocative incidents" have responded to the statement of Britain for interception of the Russian frigate ", act extremely irresponsibly. The present episode perfectly illustrates malignancy of the idea of dislocation of the British Air Force and other NATO forces in Romania, Poland, the Baltics. Instead of strengthening of someone's safety such military presence is actually used by the British authorities for own provocative activity – as verbal that is regrettable, and real military that is simply dangerous" — the press secretary has told journalists. According to the diplomat, all actions of the Russian armed forces strictly correspond to international law and don't pose any threat for Great Britain. "Still it is possible to understand when the Royal fleet accompanies the ships of the Russian Navy at pass through English Channel, in close proximity to the British coast, though it is optional to accompany it with public statements. But what threat of Great Britain or even the Russian patrol plane making flights near the Russian coast at distance can theoretically present to her allies at least more than two thousand kilometers from the British Isles?" — the press secretary has noted. Earlier the Ministry of Defence of the United Kingdom stated that on August 23 the British fighters rose from military base in Romania for escort of the Russian military plane which has taken off from the Crimea.
