According to the data gotten from the daily mail; In recent news, it has been reported that a Royal Navy warship has been dispatched to track Russian warships that have been spotted lurking off the coast of the United Kingdom.
The five Russian vessels in question are capable of carrying nuclear weapons, which has heightened concerns about potential threats to the UK.
In response, the Type 23 frigate has been mobilized to navigate the North Sea and keep a close watch on the Russian flotilla.
This move by the Royal Navy is a precautionary measure aimed at deterring any possible threats posed by the Russian warships. The Type 23 frigate, hailed by the Navy as the 'core of the front-line Fleet', has set sail to tail the five Russian vessels as they approach UK waters.
The flotilla includes five warships, with two additional support vessels expected to arrive in the waters off the UK today.
All the Russian warships are equipped with Kalibr cruise missiles, which are capable of carrying nuclear warheads and have been previously used in Ukraine.
This has raised concerns among the British authorities, who are monitoring the situation closely. A Ministry of Defence spokesperson informed the media that they routinely provide a suitable presence to counter and deter threats, especially within UK waters and its Economic Exclusion Zone.
