Breaking - Ship 'carrying attack helicopters to Syria' halted off Scotland turns around AND heads back to Russia!!
The UK has made moves to stop a cargo vessel allegedly carrying refurbished Russian-made attack helicopters from completing its journey to Syria.

The MV Alaed had its insurance withdrawn by The Standard Club in London while it was about 50 miles (80.4km) off Scotland's north coast.

Withdrawal of insurance prevents the MV Alaed from sailing until its owner could secure new cover.

UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said the ship was returning to Russia.

It was thought that the vessel had stopped for a time off the Western Isles.

The Russian embassy in London has not yet commented.

Russia lost no nerve.. They were forced to turn around because the UK company that insures their ship essentially cancelled the insurance, vis-a-vis the UK foreign office.

This is one of a series of blows. Everyone knew Putin re-claiming the presidency was going to result in some type of Russian re-emergence.

Next stop, the Russian press office. What will Putin have to say about this? Do the Russians consider this a provocation?

The UK just gave the middle finger to Russia. We have not seen these types of moves since the cold war.

It's likely very strategic by the Russians, and there is the possibility the crew is following orders from it's shipping company. Keep in mind this is a cargo ship carrying supplies, not a military vessel.

Now.. if Putin provides that cargo ship with a military escort.. then well.. stay tuned!

Violation of EU treaties and recent action against the Syrian regime.

Make no mistake, this order came directly from Downing street, and I cannot see any other company providing insurance after what just happened, too many legalities involved.

NATO will do whatever it takes to stop any arms from entering Syria to aid the Assad regime.

This took place off the UK coast. I'm not an insurance expert, but how could a russian company insure a vessel in UK/EU territory?

There is a fight coming. I hope we're ready. Russia isn't a petty Islamic dictatorship. They are a former superpower that may not be able to whip us, but they can damn sure do more than bloody our nose.

They'll still have to go the long way around as I can't see the UK giving them permission to sail through British territorial waters, if anything this was more about causing delays to the delivery than anything else (my opinion of course)
