Parliamentarians of the United Kingdom had angered Spain's decision to allow Russian submarine "Novorossiysk" log in to refuel in the port of Ceuta, located on the Northern coast of Morocco.
English MPs and military experts have accused the Spanish government of "overt provocations" aimed against Gibraltar - a British overseas territory on the Iberian Peninsula, which is disputed by Spain. In their vision, Spain allowed "Novorossiysk" to enter the port, which is located close to the territory of Gibraltar, to intimidate the population of the British enclave.
"Spain has consistently ignored the border of the territorial waters of Gibraltar, rammed ships and even opened fire on vessels with travelers. And now to top it all off they allow a hostile fleet in the country to leave the submarine is not more than 18 kilometers from Gibraltar, "said British MP Andrew Rosindell, RIA "news" referring to The Independent. In addition, military analysts are concerned that the shares of Spain's claim about the lack of European resolve to confront Russia on Ukraine." in the past 18 months, NATO has focused on opposition to Russian aggression in Ukraine, and here one of the NATO members are actively adopts advanced Russian military ship, next to the Black sea. It's crazy, It will cause confusion in the capital of the U.S., " said American military expert of the analytical center of the Heritage Foundation's Luke Coffey, adding that shares in Spain will cause a powerful protest in the U.S., taking into account that Madrid does not give the courts of the USA or NATO to drop anchor off the coast of Spain, if they were in Gibraltar. Moscow has stated many times that it is not involved in the events in southeastern Ukraine, is not a party to domestic conflict and is interested in Ukraine overcame political and economic crisis. In the capital of Russia emphasize that all the charges against her are unproven.
