Portsmouth-based warship sent to shadow Russian ship off Scotland – Portsmouth News

THE warship that was sent to shadow a Russian off the coast of Scotland after it sailed near the Moray Firth has been named as HMS Defender.

As reported by The News, HMS Defender sailed from the city in December.

Today a national newspaper reports the missile-carrying Russian warship came within 30 miles of the coast before Christmas.

It said Portsmouth-based HMS Defender was the only ship available to respond due to Ministry of Defence cutbacks and had a tense stand-off with the Russian ship.
