MOSCOW, June 24./TASS/. British Ambassador to Russia Deborah Bronnert has arrived at the Russian Foreign Ministry, where she was summoned on Wednesday over the incident with the British destroyer HMS Defender in the Black Sea.
The diplomat entered the building without any comments, TASS reports from the site.
Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a briefing earlier that Moscow regarded the incident "as a crude provocation by the UK which runs counter to international and Russian law". "I also inform you that the British ambassador will be summoned to our Foreign Ministry," she said.
