A formidable Chinese flotilla has travelled 10,000 miles for the show of strength with its ally Russia.

Ten ships and the same number of aircraft descended on Europe’s border to take part in their provocative war games.

Among the arsenal is the Chinese Type 052D guided missile destroyer Hefei, one of the country’s most advanced warships.

And they have been joined by a Russian contingent featuring equally advanced hardware, including two Russian corvettes.

The exercises have been met with caution by Nato members, with the Chinese ships being escorted at various points in their mammoth journey by British, Dutch and Danish crafts as it passed through the Channel and the North Sea.

Beijing made clear they were intent to impress by flaunting their military capabilities.

Naval expert Li Jie said: “By sending its most advanced guided-missile destroyers, China is expressing its sincerity to Russia and also sends a strong signal to other countries who plan to provoke us.”

The US and Britain are two Nato members closely monitoring the games, in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Kaliningrad, Russia’s heavily militarised enclave on the European mainline between Poland and Lithuania – both Nato members themselves.

The joint US’ European Command responded, saying: “We are closely tracking Russian exercises with other participants like China.

“While we support their rights to train in international commons, we expect all nations adhere to international norms and laws.”
