A Royal Navy warship has been scrambled to follow a Russian vessel believed to be carrying a “vomit inducing” weapon as it sails close to UK territorial waters.

HMS Defender was deployed at weekend to keep watch on the frigate Admiral Gorshkov and three auxiliary ships.

A Navy spokesman said: “Portsmouth-based Defender is monitoring the Russian task group and keeping track of their activity in areas of national interest.”

The Russian group comprises the frigate Admiral Gorshkov, tug Nicolay Chiker, supply ship Elbrus and tanker Kama.

The Gorshkov is reportedly fitted with Russia’s Filin 5P-42 device – a “visual optical interference” weapon which can cause “dizziness, nausea and feelings of disorientation”.

Mark Lancaster, armed forces minister, said: “The Royal Navy is always standing ready to defend the UK. We will continue to work with our allies to shadow Russian ships passing through international waters close to our shores, to ensure the Russian navy follows the correct protocol on its journey.”

HMS Defender left Newcastle on Saturday to head north east of Scotland to meet the Russian task group in time for the ships to pass the UK coastline on Tuesday.

It will continue to shadow the ships as they pass through the English Channel.

Commander Richard Hewitt, the commanding officer of HMS Defender, said: “The security of the seas around our coastline remains crucial to our national interests.

“Escorting the Admiral Gorshkov has demonstrated the Royal Navy’s enduring commitment to protecting our home waters and readiness to undertake such tasking whenever it’s required.”

  1. Why don’t we side with Russia…
    They won’t have a Rothschild bank on Russian soil ?’..If that’s true we should drop Israel….The only problem is this so called monarchy with all past governments were and still are corrupted..yes by ZIONISTS
    (print this !!!)…

  2. The Royal Navy is not standing by to defend the UK and its fisheries. On the contrary, the navy is continually depleted by sending its ships to far away locations to try and foment war Time for a major change of policies …

  3. ” to shadow Russian ships passing through international waters close to our (UK) shores, to ensure the Russian navy follows the correct protocol on its journey.”

    So it appears that following the correct and accepted protocols close to the UK are GOOD.

    BUT

    When Russia insists on correct and accepted protocols close to Russia it are BAD.

    The Sea of Asov comes to mind 🙂

  4. A Russian warship reportedly carrying vomit inducing weapons that cause dizziness , nausea and disorientation, no fear there then, we have suffered from that for years under this government. Who already had been given a massive overdose.

  5. Again, I am sitting in my bunker then according British propaganda news we are under Russian attack.

    Wow!

    Love the British propaganda concerning “always protecting our shores and defending (Rothschild’s) interests”.
    Keep the “war-pressure” on The Man in The Street!, British Ministry of War. Like in the good old colonial days.

    The Royal Navy?
    It will sail and defend the interests of the highests bidder on this planet like S A in Yemen or where ever.
