The Daily Express compared the British army with the Russian one









The British newspaper Daily Express compared the armed forces of Russia and the United Kingdom against the background of the aggravation of the situation in Eastern Europe — European media wrote about the maneuvers of the Russian army on the border with Ukraine.

Journalists have estimated that the number of personnel of the Russian Federation exceeds the UK by more than 10 times — 3 million military personnel against 275.66 thousand. There are 4,163 combat aircraft in service with Russia, which is 5.6 times higher than British military aviation. The largest gap is observed in tank forces — 12,950 tanks in Moscow and 227 in London.

The only thing in which Britain surpasses Russia is aircraft carriers, of which the heiress of the British Empire, nicknamed the "Mistress of the Seas", has two.

"As for other naval combat vehicles, such as submarines and destroyers, the Russians have significantly bypassed us: they have 16 destroyers and 62 submarines, and we have six and ten, respectively," the newspaper found out.

Earlier, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the Russian authorities would be making a serious mistake if they used force against Ukraine.
