UK Brags About Direct Involvement In Attacking Russian Navy Ships

UK General Staff head Admiral Tony Radakin

Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

Russophobia has always been present in the political West. Whether it’s simply the fear of a near-peer adversary or perhaps the age-old sea power (thalassocracy) vs. a land power (tellurocracy) competition, the fact is that the belligerent power pole really does not like Russia, to put it mildly. Moscow has been trying to find common ground with the political West for centuries. However, that seems all but impossible, as the latter stubbornly refuses to engage with the Eurasian giant. It can even be argued that this has been the defining characteristic of European and global geopolitics, pushing the “old continent” and the world into several destructive conflicts. Interestingly, the leading Western power, the United States, doesn’t really have a long history of Russophobia, unlike many European countries.

After WWII and the advent of the (First) Cold War, the enmity between America and Russia became the standard in the global geopolitical arena. And yet, even then, a level of mutual respect existed, while international treaties were largely respected and played a significant role in keeping the balance of power relatively intact. The unfortunate dismantling of the Soviet Union put an end to this, especially after neocons and Atlanticists took power in Washington DC. However, of all US allies, vassals and satellite states, there’s one that makes even such endemically Russophobic countries like Poland or the Baltic states seem “moderate enough” – the United Kingdom. London’s Russophobia is so deeply ingrained in its geopolitical strategy, even when it was officially allied to Moscow, both during the Napoleonic and World Wars.

The escalation of the NATO-orchestrated Ukrainian conflict exposed this hatred to the fullest, as the UK was among the first to insist on a broader confrontation with Russia. Realizing that trying to talk to anyone with such pathologically Russophobic policies is simply pointless, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) even contemplated cutting all diplomatic ties with Downing Street. The latter’s extremely escalatory actions such as the delivery of ever more advanced and longer-range weapons to the Kiev regime, as well as various dangerous munitions, particularly the depleted uranium ones, made it impossible to maintain normal diplomatic contacts.  Moscow has repeatedly warned London to stop its ever-growing meddling in Ukraine, but to no avail, as the latter only keeps escalating it.

In the latest revelations about the UK’s involvement in helping the Neo-Nazi junta, the Times essentially praised the British military’s contribution to the destruction of Russian naval assets. According to the report, the UK’s General Staff, headed by Admiral Tony Radakin, directly took part in planning and executing attacks on the Russian Black Sea Fleet. Radakin also seems to have been involved in other covert operations in Ukraine, all aimed at diminishing Russian capabilities. Worse yet, it seems that other NATO assets have also been involved, presumably various ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) platforms, meaning that London certainly wasn’t alone in this “noble endeavor”. In other words, this isn’t a simple arming of the Kiev regime forces, but a direct participation in hostilities.

For all intents and purposes, it’s tantamount to a declaration of war. And that’s precisely how Moscow sees it. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova slammed the UK for its involvement. She said the Russian MFA has repeatedly pointed out the undeniable evidence of the complicity of UK intelligence and other special services in the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine. Worse yet, this includes their involvement in terrorist attacks on Russian territory. Zakharova also said that Russian intelligence detected British involvement long ago, but London refused to acknowledge their presence, insisting that only individuals with UK passports participate as “volunteers”. And while there are certainly such people in Ukraine, direct British military presence is a very different story.

“It has been detected that the British, along with the US, acted as spotters, supplying the Kiev regime with coordinates of targets. As for the terrorist attacks against the Black Sea Fleet, they were literally conducted under the direction of British special services,” Zakharova said, adding: “In general, the question that should be asked is not about Britain’s involvement in separate episodes of the conflict in Ukraine, but about the unleashing and participation of London in the anti-Russian hybrid war.”

Other high-ranking Russian officials, such as the Kremlin Spokesman Dmitriy Peskov, also warned about London’s direct involvement in the Ukrainian conflict. Russian military experts note that the recognition of direct participation in hostilities against the Russian Federation could also serve to prepare the public in NATO countries for a full-fledged entry into the war. This could also be a demonstrative crossing of Moscow’s red lines, recently reiterated by Russian President Vladimir Putin during his speech to the Federal Assembly. Perhaps the UK was hoping to “encourage” NATO member states that are too reluctant to enter a direct confrontation with Russia. However, they don’t seem to be very keen on doing so, as evidenced by their rejection of a similar proposal by French President Emmanuel Macron.

For some inexplicable reason, London believes that Moscow will leave such unashamedly hostile actions unanswered. Responsibility and patience may be the bedrock of Russian foreign policy, but that certainly doesn’t mean that the Eurasian giant will follow these principles even when it becomes ultimately self-defeating to do so. It’s perfectly clear to Moscow that the political West decided to deliberately cross all Russian red lines long ago. However, even though the Eurasian giant is trying its best not to push the world into the abyss by reciprocating such actions, it may soon be left with no other choice. It’s yet to be seen in what ways Moscow will react, but for the time being, I would be extremely worried if I were a British sailor, as the Russian military may soon decide to start responding tit for tat.

how long it will take russia instead speaking of treasons, lies and dirty tricks to start do something. shoting down avacs over black sea for example instead”intercepting” or “dumping fuel” on them.

they try to deescalate as much as possible which is the smartest thing right now. no one should want a direct confrontation it will be a dissaster for everyone involved. if say syria would have retaliated against erdogan and his drones in idlib or israeli airstrikes it would have been a disaster for him. if his country had the capabilities to teach the turks a lesson im certain he would have secured the whole idlib province a long time a go

u.k and u.s. ships going to israel in the red sea being sunk is the retaliation

Jull

its bait to get ww3.. i’ve been saying along the russian mfa (lavrov, etc) didnt single out uk enough as the single instigator of the war. macron is just a puppet psycho reading his text. now the russian job is not to retaliate but make clear to the world the uk is trying to push the world in ww3 as they did for ww2 ww1 already

the thames barrier is a retractable barrier system built to protect the floodplain of most of greater london from exceptionally high tides and storm surges moving up from the north sea. it has been operational since 1982. when needed, it is closed (raised) during high tide; at low tide, it can be opened to restore the river’s flow towards the sea.

where is our brazilian friend to comment about the pirate’s rock?… kind of messianic in their comments but this is the place to comment about 🇬🇧 uk and british empire. and about the brag on sinking ships. i don’t think it’s a good idea to brag about sinking another peer country because they could retaliate. bragging is a clear sign of weakness.

the funny thing about all this anti- rossian frenzy is… the english allies of ukr. are the some british intelligence that betrayed the cossacks in thr german army, tricked them about changing guns and uniforms to go on to fight the krasnarmiya…. then handed them over to to the soviet side on a silver platter by judases for 30 pieces of silver? a velikoye predatelstvo is coming the great betrayal of ukrainarus! coming soon to a movie theater near you!

i remember what the british did when tony blair was in charge with his lying to justify the invasion of iraq and afghanistan. the british involvement and command centers inside syria supporting the jihadist headchoppers. i hope that these british units in ukraine get blown up they deserve it more then ever for their crimes and aid to the washington sponsored nazis in donbass

russia has shown so much patience and restraint that nato, especially the rabid british and us neocons, feel they can now “risk” entering ukraine in both the north through poland and the south through romania without the russians acting with anything more than stamping feet. heck, the russians allow the tourist trains to kiev and odessa to run, inviting foreign leaders, and allow weapons to enter almost as unimpeded. if we get a bigger war it’s because russia failed to deter it.

russia is showing restraint just because they know they are too many satellites and puppets, and they have memories about how the british empire and now the hegemon of usa empire always send the puppets to fight and after the attrition war, when they are exhausted they will enter war, just like in both two world wars. russia has almost a thousand years of memories and you cannot fool them.
