World A- A A+

A Russian military ship fired warning shots at British Royal Navy destroyer HMS Defender after it entered Russian waters in the Black Sea, and a Russian jet dropped bombs in its path as a warning, BBC news reports. 

The Defender left Russian waters soon afterward, having ventured as much as 3 kilometers (2 miles) inside, the ministry said.

"The destroyer had been warned that weapons would be used if it trespasses the border of the Russian Federation. However, it did not react to the warning," it said.

According to the ministry, a Russian bomber dropped four high explosive fragmentation bombs as a warning in the British destroyer's path. The incident took place in the northwestern part of the Black Sea.
