Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated on Thursday that the provocation of the British ship entering Russian waters in the Black Sea was necessary to prove to the media space how unpredictable Russia can be.

"What was that for? To strengthen the myth in the Western informational and political space, created in the depths of Brussels, about our alleged unpredictability and the threat we supposedly pose to the Western world. That's what these provocative actions were for, " Zakharova said.

Earlier this week, Russian defense authorities fired warning shots at a British Type 45 destroyer that crossed Russia's sea border in the Black Sea. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had stated the ship was "wholly appropriate to use international waters."
