Things are moving so quickly these days you don’t have the time to write about one event before some new episode comes.
Russia has announced it has used live ammunition to drive a British warship out of its territorial waters in the Black Sea. The incident took place on the eve of the giant Sea Breeze exercises of Ukraine and NATO in the Black Sea.
