A Russian spy ship appeared in a sensitive area of ​​Europe – What are they up to?

The Admiral Vladimirskyi is officially an ocean research vessel and operated in international waters. At the same time, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland also claim that the ship’s task is to detect sensitive infrastructure located on the ocean floor (e.g. internet cables, gas pipelines). According to the Danish DR TV channel, there were also Russian soldiers on the ship.

The news channel also touched on the fact that the ship was also spotted in the vicinity of Scotland, where it probably observed wind farms that play an important role in Britain’s energy supply. According to DR, the ship was spying because Russia wants to map the weaknesses of Western countries in case of possible escalation.

Sky News reports that the UK Navy is buying deep-sea surveillance equipment to detect possible weaknesses in critical infrastructure and prevent possible sabotage.
