In one fell swoop, a group of Irish fishermen are doing more to harass the Russians than the illegitimate president. A flotilla or Irish fishing vessels will peacefully disrupt Russian naval exercises off the coast or Cork, Ireland.
Irish fishers are planning to peacefully disrupt plans by the Russian Navy to conduct military exercises 240km off the coast of Cork next month.
The artillery drills at the start of February will take place in international waters but within Irish-controlled airspace and the country’s exclusive economic zone.
Patrick Murphy, chief executive of the Irish South and West Fish Producers Organisation told RTÉ radio’s Morning Ireland that the area was very important for fishers and that they wanted to protect biodiversity and marine life.
There are currently half a billion tonnes of blue whiting in the area that move up along the coastline.
Considering the amount of ocean surrounding Russia, you’d think they would conduct naval exercises on their home turf. Methinks this is just another provocation from Putin, by harassing a weaker country.
