The UK’s newest and many absolute warship, a aircraft
carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, sailed from its
wharf in Scotland for sea trials this week.

Russia’s aircraft carrier, a Admiral Kuznetsov, is back
in Murmansk for dear repairs
after ancillary Russian army in Syria.

Though a ships are distant detached geographically, they are
head-to-head in a minds both countries’ troops leaders, who
have exchanged ardent criticisms of any other’s fleets this

during a sea trials in a North Sea this week.

“They will try and get some-more information about a carrier,
though we have ways and means, that I’m positively not going into,
of creation certain a conduit is entirely protected,”

Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said.

Royal navy officials have pronounced a frigate or
destroyer will chaperon a Elizabeth and that

shore-based helicopters will demeanour for Russian submarines
espionage on it. Fallon

also took a event to
ridicule Russian naval capacity.

“It’s unequivocally slight for a Russians to collect
comprehension on a ships,” Fallon told The Telegraph.
“We will take each prevision to make certain that they don’t get
too close, though we consider they will be admiring her.”

Fallon, who boasted a UK was
building dual absolute aircraft carriers during a time when usually three
countries in a universe were constructing them, also ribbed the
Kuznetsov specifically.

“When we saw that old, decayed Kuznetsov sailing
by a Channel, a few months ago, we consider a Russians will
demeanour during this boat with a small bit of envy,” he told The

The 55,000-ton Kuznetsov, that was consecrated in 1991,
frequently faces technical and automatic problems.

It sails with a
tugboat in box of breakdown.

In annoy of those issues, a Russian troops bristled at
Fallon’s jibes.

Russian Defense Ministry orator Igor Konashenkov
pronounced a UK defense

“ecstatic statements … expose
Fallon’s complete stupidity of naval science.”

“Unlike a Admiral Kuznetsov, that is versed with
anti-aircraft and anti-submarine missiles and generally Granit
missiles to strike ships, a British aircraft conduit is nothing
though a big, available aim in a sea,” he pronounced in a

“For that reason, it is in a interests of a British royal
navy not to uncover off a ‘beauty’ of a aircraft conduit on the
high seas any closer than a few hundred miles to a Russian
‘distant relative,'” Konashenkov added.

This sell comes after Fallon irritated Russia in January,
when he called a large Russian cruiser “a boat of shame” as
it upheld tighten to a English seashore on a approach behind from bombing
raids in Syria.

Relations between Russia and Europe and a US have become
increasingly chilly.
