President Putin received a question regarding the recent Black Sea clash during an online exchange with the Russian people.

On June 23, a Russian warship and a Su-24M bomber fired in the air and dropped warning bombs near the British destroyer HMS Defender, after Russia accused it of violating its territorial waters in the South China Sea. Black.

Russian President Vladimir Putin received questions related to this clash during an online exchange with the people today (June 30). Accordingly, Putin called the move of the British destroyer "aggressive" and pointed out that the US was also involved in the "infringement of Russian territorial waters" off the Crimean peninsula.

Specifically, the question Putin received was, "Do you think that during the clash with the British destroyer, the world stood on the threshold of World War III?"

"I don't think so," Putin said. "This is a provocation. So what are the provocateurs trying to achieve?"

The Russian leader continued: "Not only the British, but also the Americans were involved. It was clear that the destroyer was pursuing military objectives - we followed what they started. We know it. , but only publish the necessary images.

Their second goal is related to politics. Just a few days earlier, a meeting was held in Geneva. Why are they acting so provocative? To show disrespect for the choice of the Crimean people?

And even if Russia sinks this ship, I can hardly imagine the world standing on the threshold of World War III. Because these people know that they cannot win such a war. We know what we are fighting for - for your future [the Russian people], for our territory. We are not trespassers in their territory, but the opposite.

I am worried about something else. They complain about our drills near the Ukrainian border. I gave the order to withdraw the troops. But they are approaching our border. I am concerned that they will increase the deployment of troops on the territory of Ukraine. According to the [Ukraine] Constitution, there cannot be foreign military bases in Ukraine, but training centers are possible. This is going to be a big security issue for us."
