The Russian navy destroyer Smetlivy has fired "warning shots" across the bows of a Turkish fishing boat in the Aegean Sea earlier today (13 December). Russia's Defence Ministry says in an Interfax announcement that the Smetlivy fired after the fishing boat refused to change its course, at one point passing within 500m of the warship. Following the shots, the boat altered course.

In a statement released via Interfax the Russian Defence Ministry said, "Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov has summoned the military attach? of the Turkish embassy in Russia in connection with the incident in the Aegean Sea."
