Russian Naval Force Passes Close to Rye
Huy Garris sent in this picture of the Russian Navy vessels sailing past Rye on their way to Syria via the English Channel.
The Russian fleet, including the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov and the nuclear-powered Pyotr Velikiy battle cruiser, will cross the Bay of Biscay and enter the Mediterranean at Gibraltar.
The warships could assist in the bombardment of Aleppo although Russia has denied that this is part of the plan.
The Russians, sailing in International waters, are being tracked by the Royal Navy.
