UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday that the HMS Defender destroyer that entered Russia's territorial waters on Wednesday was acting legally in international waters, APA reports citing Reuters. 

"I think it was wholly appropriate to use international waters...The important point is that we don't recognise the Russian annexation of Crimea," Johnson told the media.
