The First Lord of the Admiralty, Commander of the British Royal Navy, Sir Ben Kee, believed that Russia posed an “immediate danger” to Britain, and China, which posed a “strategic danger”, should also be taken into account.
The British channel Sky News quoted the admiral as saying: “We must look through binoculars at the entire horizon. The danger of focusing only on Russia is that we may miss the longer-term strategic danger posed by China.”
He added that Britain must “respond to the immediate danger” from Russia, without disclosing how.
British Navy Chief of Staff Admiral Tony Radakin said earlier that the British Navy believes that Russia “will pose a threat to the United Kingdom for many decades” in the future.
