"The ship of shame": British fighter jets escort Russia's Admiral Kuznetsov on its way from Syria. VIDEO+PHOTOS

British armed forces escorted Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov as it passed through waters close to the English coast on its way back from bombing raids in Syria.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Reuters, images released by the British defense ministry showed RAF Typhoon jets and the Royal Navy's HMS St. Albans frigate escorting the Admiral Kuznetsov and its support vessels in the English Channel on Wednesday as they headed toward the North Sea.

"We will keep a close eye on the Admiral Kuznetsov as it skulks back to Russia; a ship of shame whose mission has only extended the suffering of the Syrian people," minister Fallon said in a statement.

As reported, the planes on the carrier took part in Russian bombing of rebel forces in Syria's civil war.
