Spain lets Russian navy use its port: Madrid accused of hypocrisy after allowing three ships to dock at territories in North Africa
Three vessels docked in Ceuta, south of Spain, despite tensions
Nato has mounted defence alliance against Russia over Ukraine crisis
British MPs condemn move as 'hypocritical' as conflict wages on

Spain has been accused of ‘absurdity and hypocrisy’ after allowing three Russian navy ships to dock in its territories in north Africa.

British MPs said Madrid’s decision to allow the vessels - including a heavily-armed destroyer - to take on fuel, food and other supplies offered ‘succour’ to Moscow.

Incredibly, the vessels docked in Ceuta as tensions between Nato - of which Spain is a member - and Russia mounted over the crisis in Ukraine.
