A Royal Navy warship has patrolled two Russian ships in British waters off Scotland.

The patrol ship HMS Tyne has been closely monitoring the intelligence ship Viktor Leonov and her supporting tanker Sergey Osipov.

They have sailed around the Moray Firth, where they sheltered from Storm Aiden when it hit land on October 31st, and conducted replenishment operations before the Osipov left British waters.

Tyne previously shadowed a group of Russian warships, including the corvette Vasily Bykov, a Kilo-class submarine, and her accompanying support ship, a sea tug.

Lieutenant Justin Shirtcliff, the ship's chief of operations, said, “It was evident that these two ships were taking shelter from the high winds and rough seas of Storm Aiden, and Tyne stayed nearby to monitor their activities.

"HMS Tyne and its sailors are ready for short-term assignments in any weather and anywhere."

It is the third time in a month that the patrol ship has shadowed foreign warships in domestic waters – partly in conjunction with NATO allies.

She was supported by the Portuguese frigate NRP Corte Real from the NATO Standing Maritime Group 1, which ensured constant surveillance of the Russian units on their way through British waters.

After Tyne turned over surveillance duties to Britain's allies, he went south to observe another Russian unit, the Smolny, a cadet training ship that sailed through British waters.

In addition to overseeing her duties, Tyne has also carried out her regular duties to protect UK fish stocks by inspecting ship movements off the east coast of the UK.

Lieutenant Commander Richard Skelton, Tyne's commanding officer, said, “Tyne has again demonstrated the adaptability of the Royal Navy's offshore patrol vessels and their crews.

& # 39; We have quickly changed roles from overseeing foreign warships to conducting boarding operations to protect our fisheries.

"I am proud of the hard work the shipping company has done to make this possible."
