The BBC has struck again, plastering another alarming report across their website on Friday to warn the British people about big, bad, scary Russia. So what did those Russkies do this time? They flew a plane near their own border.
Called out on Twitter by Charles Shoebridge, a former army officer, Scotland Yard detective and counter terrorism intelligence officer, his post points out a few details the BBC missed: The Russian plane was in international airspace and the Black Sea – over 2,000km from the United Kingdom – is actually on Russia’s doorstep.
“RAF fighter jets have intercepted a Russian military aircraft over the Black Sea for the second time in a week,” the Ministry of Defence told the BBC. “The Typhoons were scrambled from a base in Romania on Thursday after a Be-12 maritime patrol aircraft was seen heading south-west from Crimea towards NATO airspace.”
