Criss-cross voyage outside Scottish airbase comes to an end, Norwegian Sea next destination for Russian warship

Barents Observer – In September, the British Royal Navy led the largest NATO task force into the Barents Sea since the last Cold War. The warships sailed to north of the Kola Peninsula, home to the Russian Northern Fleet’s ballistic missile submarines and surface warships. In what seems like a equivalent retaliation, or tit-for-tat, the powerful guided missile destroyer “Severomorsk” has since last week been sailing back and forth close to British shores just north of the Royal Air Force base Lossiemouth in north-east Scotland.
