When Russia flew over Denmark, Denmark reacted by sending a full fleet toward Moscow for a bombing run if needed. I'm sure this doesn't hit your news papers? There is a damn reason for that!
Warships in a Russian navy task force headed for Syria have sought shelter off the Scottish coast from stormy weather.
Elements of the Baltic Fleet - including an aircraft carrier and support ships - started arriving in the Moray Firth on Monday.
Russian military news agency Interfax-AVN said on Tuesday the fleet sought shelter in "deteriorating weather".
Royal Navy destroyer HMS York was shadowing the vessels.
The Royal Navy and Ministry of Defence have released images of the Type 42 destroyer close to the Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov.
Other Russian ships that sought shelter in the Moray Firth included aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Flota Sovetskogo Soyuza Kuznetsov.
Other vessels were the anti-submarine warfare ship Admiral Chabanenko and escort ship Yaroslav Mudryy, according to Interfax-AVN.

And this shows your ignorance, firstly Russia is not poor, it's people maybe poor, or the vast majority of them, but Russia is not, it is the most mineral rich nation in the world. Secondly the UN cannot sanction either Russia or China because both countries are permanent members of the UN security council and have the right of veto and can block any move to sanction any country if they so wish, just as the US does with Israel.
People seem to keep discussing Russia and China as two separate entities, which goes to prove that people don't watch what is really going on. Russia and China are now partners, along with many other nations they are part of the B.R.I.C.S agreement, Russia and China along with Iran are planning a joint missile defence shield. If a war does start with Russia, it will be against both Russia and China and the west cannot win that war.
WW3 cannot be won by any side either east or west it can only end in stalemate or with both sides losing because when the nukes start flying it is the world finished, there is no way for example the US will allow an invasion force to step foot on US soil, it would nuke the country first, the same can be said for Russia and China.
Having said all that, this is a non story, Russia has every right to be in international waters, each countries territorial waters only extends 12 miles from shore, that is maritime law, and it is common practice that enemy combative ships to be escorted when close to their territorial boundary, think about it logically if we truly felt threatened we would send more than one destroyer to face a carrier group.
people on here must have the most boring of lives, its like everyone wants a disaster, wants WW3 to bring some excitement to their miserable existence, with no real idea of the consequences, a nuclear exchange will destroy the world, it will ruin everything for everyone, take a good look at the link below and tell me you want that the world over, that you want your kids, your families going through that
Hiroshima pictures they didnt want us to see

If anyone is dumb enough to think that the military hierarchies of the UK were not informed by the Russians that an aircraft carrier was going to cross their waters on it's way to Syria, then this message is for you: You're an idiot.
A move of such magnitude is ALWAYS accompanied by a "hey, we're not attacking" memo.
Now for those who think that a major war would be exciting, are you fricking kidding me?
Exciting is not the word I used to describe the last great war, which by the way cost 60 MILLION LIVES. It also changed the lives and focus of pretty much every single individual on the planet for SEVEN long years.
Great wars like the one that is potentially 'just around the corner', are not exciting, they're not fun and they're not something that ANY of you will simply get to experience from a book.
I've had my terrifying seven years, and thanks to my age and current location I will not have to go abroad and experience it again. Nevertheless I WILL be affected, my loved ones WILL be affected and some of them will even be lost during the conflict.
Discussing such an event as though it's a TV movie is ridiculous. You will all see my point if the events unfold the way they're being predicted.
It was understood the Royal Navy informed the National Maritime Information Centre about rubbish being dumped from the carrier. A Ministry of Defence (MoD) source said it was almost certainly food waste that was dumped
