Russia claims it will present ‘evidence’ that UK special forces were behind attacks in Crimea

The Russian government says it is planning to present “evidence” that special forces from the United Kingdom were responsible for attacks on Moscow’s forces and naval assets in Crimea.

The Kremlin is planning to summon the British ambassador “in the near future” in order to present evidence that also threatens to collapse a Ukrainian grain export deal that was brokered by the United Nations.

President Vladimir Putin’s government claims to have “firm evidence” that the British military assisted with a large-scale drone strike against the Russian navy’s Black Sea Fleet last week off the coast of Crimea.

“The U.K. ambassador will be summoned and will be given the appropriate materials,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, adding the meeting would take place “in the near future.”

“The basic materials will be handed over as evidence to the British side and will also be shown to the general public,” she added.

Britain’s ambassador to Russia is Deborah Bronnert, The Moscow Times reported.

Zakharova also said that Russia would be publishing the “materials” after its meeting with the ambassador.

Over the weekend, the Russian military said Ukrainian forces had launched drones against its fleet “under the leadership of British specialists in the city of Ochakiv” in southern Ukraine.

The Kremlin added that “according to our information,” the same British unit had “taken part in the planning” of September explosions on the Nord Stream gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea. However, the U.K. countered that these are “false claims on an epic scale.”



Earlier, reports claimed that former British Prime Minister Liz Truss is at the center of a growing controversy regarding the act of sabotage against Russia’s Nord Stream 1 and 2 natural gas pipelines.

Early last month, the world held its breath as news spread that the Russian-owned infrastructure had been attacked, with many in the West convinced that President Vladimir Putin would retaliate in some manner. Reports at the time suggested that the United States was responsible.

But according to various reports, the British government had at least some role in the incident.

Kim Dotcom, a self-proclaimed “Internet Freedom Fighter,” tweeted that then British PM Truss sent this message to U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken — “It’s done” — right after the sabotage took place, which is why the Russian government has accused London of being responsible.

“Liz Truss used her iPhone to send a message to Secretary Blinken saying ‘it’s done’ a minute after the pipeline blew up and before anybody else knew,” he told his nearly one million Twitter followers.

Dotcom, who was born Kim Schmitz in West Germany — when the country was divided — suggested he obtained the information through an iCloud hack.

“It’s not just the Five Eyes that have backdoor admin access to all Big Tech databases,” he said. “Russia and China have sophisticated cyber units too. The funny thing is Govt officials with top security clearance still prefer using iPhones over their NSA & GCHQ issued encrypted s**t-phones.”



Fox News’ top-rated host, Tucker Carlson, also appears to believe that the U.S. was involved and that such an act would have been lunacy for two reasons — environmental damage and potentially triggering a nuclear war.

    Jeremy Hunt claims we are skint and need to save £50 billion in cuts and higher taxation.

    Yet both Labour & Tory scumbags are cheerleaders for profligate spending on the empire’s criminal Ukraine project and dud military toys.

    The MOD’s £300bn waste of public money

    The British public is facing a new round of austerity while the Ministry of Defence squanders vast sums of money on weapons that are unusable in any foreseeable conflict.

    The nuclear submarine HMS Victorious S29 of the British Navy interrupted missions due to a fire on board

    The HMS Victorious S29 Vanguard-class nuclear submarine of the Royal Navy was forced to abort a secret mission and return to base due to a fire that broke out on board. It is reported by The Sun.

    The British publication, citing sources in the Ministry of Defense, reports that a strategic submarine carrying Trident II intercontinental ballistic missiles was forced to return to its Clyde base, located in Scotland, due to a fire on board. Details of the incident are not given, and there is no information about any damage, but judging by the decision to interrupt some kind of “secret mission”, they are still present.

    According to sources, because of the fire, the submarine had to surface in the North Atlantic Ocean, the decision was made because of the smoke generated as a result of the fire. After surfacing, the submarine was ventilated, and she headed for the place of permanent deployment.

    Victorious was equipped with Trident II missiles when the fire broke out.

    – the source said, adding that nothing is known about the submarine’s mission, but it was not a standard combat duty. The command of the Navy also refused to give any information, saying that they do not comment on the combat missions of the submarines.

    HMS Victorious S29 is the second Vanguard-class submarine in the Royal Navy. Entered service in 1995, carries 16 Trident II intercontinental ballistic missiles.
