Denmark’s armed forces accused a Russian warship of violating the country’s territorial waters on Friday. With the alleged incursion taking place near a so-called “Democracy Festival,” Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod accused Russia of a “provocation” and summoned Moscow’s ambassador.
The Danish military said the vessel entered its waters without permission shortly after midnight on Friday, and again a few hours later. It left after the Danish Navy made radio contact, Reuters reported.
Foreign Minister Kofod said on Friday that the Russian ambassador had been summoned.
