RUSSIA has dispatched another warship to the Mediterranean to bolster its war effort in Syria, days after a battle group arrived in the region after skirting the British coastline.

Admiral Grigorovich, a state-of-the-art frigate equipped with cruise missiles, left the Black Sea port of Sevastopol on Thursday.

join the group of Russian warships which sparked international outcry when they traced Europe, performing drills off the north cost of Scotland before heading to Syria.

A source told Russian media the warship would herald a “significant enhancement” of the Kremlin’s operation in the Mediterranean.

He added: ”The ship is versatile; she can struck missile blows on both surface and ground targets at large distance.”

The Admiral Grigorovich – a member of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet – is scheduled to be in place by Sunday.

The frigate is armed with Caliber-NK cruise missiles – which can strike land and water-based targets – anti-aircraft artillery, torpedoes and can carry deck-based helicopters.

Last week, two of the Royal Navy’s most advanced warships, HMS Duncan – a Type 45 Destroyer – and HMS Richmond, a Type 23 Frigate tracked the the heavily-armed Russian flotilla as it made its way from a port in Russia’s far north.

Among the fleet now in the Mediterranean is the Navy’s flagship the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov and the nuclear-powered Pyotr Velikiy battle cruiser.

The warships are expected to take part in the bombardment of Aleppo – something Russia has strenuously denied.

The eight-strong unit is understood to have sailed in international waters throughout its journey but Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said British forces monitored their movements closely.

Moscow has imposed a 10-hour ultimatum on the war-torn city of Aleppo – ordering fighters and civilians to flee.

The Russian fleet is poised to bomb the city in a bid to boost President Bashar al-Assad end the Syrian Civil War.
