However, the UK has confirmed that its warship HMS Defender has sailed in Ukrainian waters in accordance with international law. A spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson also said in a statement that Russia’s claim that the British plane had been hit by a warning shot was incorrect.
Russia’s foreign ministry says the British warship’s violation of Russian territorial waters is provocative, and the British ambassador to Moscow will be summoned to explain.
