Britain sends "strong" message to Russia

In these Brexit times, I know there are some who still hanker for the good old "Rule Britannia" days of gunboat diplomacy--send in a warship to quell the troublesome natives . However , I would have thought Gavin Williamson could have done a little better than HMS Echo ( an oceanographic survey vessel with minimal combat capability) sent to show solidarity with Ukraine .

Putin must be quaking in his boots .
