The UK’s ambassador to Russia was summoned by Moscow over allegations that Britain was involved in the attack of the Black Sea fleet last weekend.
The British ambassador Deborah Bronnert denied any British involvement in the attack which saw four Russian warships explode.
Russia gave the UK a serious warning that it could face “unpredictable and dangerous” consequences for their “confrontational actions.”
The Russian Foreign Ministry said they have “delivered a protest with Britain’s ambassador” on Thursday morning.
In a statement the Ministry said, “The demarche stressed that such confrontational actions by the British threatened to escalate the situation and could lead to unpredictable and dangerous consequences.”
