An unidentified Russian warship had violated Denmark’s territorial waters last Friday. According to reports, the Russian warship was spotted north of the Baltic Sea island Christiansø where the Democracy Festival of Denmark was being held.
“A Russian corvette last night violated Danish territorial waters twice. The incident took place north of Christiansø off Bornholm,” a Danish Armed Forces statement read.
This warship reportedly entered Danish waters at 0030 GMT on Friday. It apparently exited the Danish waters and entered again after a few hours according to the Danish Armed Forces. It exited for the final time after the Danish Navy contacted the Russian warship via radio.
“Later in the night, the same corvette again crossed the territorial boundary also north of Christiansø. After a call on civilian VHF radio from the Navy’s maritime response unit, the Russian ship immediately left Danish territorial waters,” they added.
