MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. The official representative of the Ministry of defense of Russia major-General Igor Konashenkov called the boastful words of the British Minister of defense Michael Fallon about the “beauty” of the new British aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth, and his superiority over the Russian aircraft-carrying cruiser “Admiral Kuznetsov”. The statement of the representative of the defense Ministry arrived in TASS.
“Exalted statement of the head of the British military authorities Fallon about the superiority of the external beauty of a new carrier on the Russian aircraft carrier “Admiral Kuznetsov” show blatant ignorance of him (Minister) of naval science. And above all — the essence of the differences “aviamatki”, which is the de facto British aircraft carrier, aircraft carrier of project 1143.5 Admiral Kuznetsov”, — said Konashenkov.
“Just as the bees, the British aircraft carrier alone is only able to release from the belly of the aircraft, while in a dense environment Roy protecting his warships, support vessels and submarines… unlike the aircraft carrier “Admiral Kuznetsov”, equipped with anti-aircraft, anti-submarine and, most importantly, anti — ship missiles “Granit”, the British aircraft carrier — just a large Maritime target” — said the representative of the Russian military.
“With this in mind, just in the interests of the British Royal Navy in the open sea do not exhibit the “beauty” of his aircraft carrier closer to a few hundred miles from the “distant relative”,” — said Konashenkov.

While the British Minister stressed that the country’s Navy will take all possible measures to make the Russian ships approached the carrier.
