A significant announcement
Today, the Defence Ministers of the Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF) agreed to activate a JEF Response Option. This includes Maritime and Air capabilities which will deploy across the JEF’s core region as a military contribution to the protection of critical undersea infrastructure. The activity will take place in early December and will ensure a security presence, strengthening our common efforts with NATO in the Baltic Sea region.

Royal Navy warship HMS Richmond has deployed to the Baltic to work with partner nations, bolster regional security and protect underwater infrastructure.

Her arrival comes as six additional UK navy ships will join a task force to patrol an area from the English Channel to the Baltic Sea in an agreement between Joint Expeditionary Force nations to ensure stability and deter threats to critical undersea cables, pipelines and other assets.

The UK contribution to the deployment will include frigates HMS Richmond and HMS Somerset, offshore patrol vessels HMS Tyne and HMS Severn and mine countermeasures vessels HMS Cattistock, HMS Penzance, as well as a Royal Fleet Auxiliary landing ship RFA Mounts Bay – supported by a Royal Air Force P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft.

The group will deploy soon to launch the joint patrols and will work together to carry out deterrent patrol in areas of key interest, as well as to deepen surveillance around offshore assets and share intelligence.
