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.

The alleged incident was a deeply irresponsible, gross and completely unacceptable Russian provocation in the middle of night, referring to the festival currently being held on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, near where the alleged incursion took place.

Running until Sunday, the Democracy Festival features talks by Danish politicians, and lectures on climate change, gender equality, and other hot-button liberal issues.

Attendees are also given the opportunity to question politicians from various Danish parties, and can compete in the festival’s ‘Feminist Pub Quiz.’

Defense Minister Morten Bodskov assured festival-goers that the island of Bornholm was safe, Reuters reported. However, he added that we must accept that the Baltic Sea is becoming a high-tension area.

Neither the Kremlin nor Russia’s embassy in Copenhagen had commented on the alleged incident at the time of writing.

  1. Timely accusation for a country that might be joining NATO.
  2. The incursion would be against Russia’s best interests.
  3. Looking at what the Russians were allegedly getting uncomfortably close to it is a shame they didn’t perform a live firing exercise.

Russia reminding Denmark how Russia/Soviet Union returned Bornholm to Denmark after the Second World War?

Get used to it, Denmark! An eye for an eye. Russia is simply learning from you
