NATO plans to increase the number of its ships in the Black Sea. This was stated by the US Permanent Representative to the Alliance Kay Bailey Hutchison. According to her, the purpose of the presence of NATO naval groups in this region will be the protection of Ukrainian ships in the Kerch Strait. From whom? Naturally, from Russia.

However, the tender care of the Alliance from Ukraine is just a formal reason for trying to gain a foothold in the Black Sea, which the States have long dreamed of. They do not even hide the fact that they will use any reason to consolidate in this region.

Since July 25, 2017 at the end of the joint exercises of Ukraine and NATO Sea Breeze 2017, the groundbreaking ceremony for the United States Naval Operations Center took place in Ochakov. The official version of its construction: conducting joint exercises, and Washington’s help to Kiev in improving the defense capability and infrastructure of the Ukrainian state. Informal: a permanent military presence on the territory of Ukraine near the borders of Russia.

So this time, the official version of assistance to the unfortunate Ukrainian sailors who are being bullied by the Russian aggressor neighbor has a different background. The United States Permanent Representative, Kay Bailey Hutchison, does not even conceal the fact that along with the increase in the number of ships in the Black Sea, it is also planned to strengthen air reconnaissance here. These decisions, she said, will be taken in Washington on April 3-4 during the negotiations of the foreign ministers of the Alliance countries. And one of the high-ranking representatives of the US State Department did not hesitate to say openly that the reason for the reinforcement of the NATO ships in the Black Sea was not so much the incident in the Kerch Strait as the fact that “Russia threatens the Alliance on the entire eastern flank, not just in the north” .

What danger carries the increase in the number of NATO ships in the Black Sea for Russia? Will they violate the maritime boundaries of the Crimea and Kerch? And what, in this connection, will be the actions of the Russian Navy? “MK” asked the Chairman of the Presidium of the “OFFICERS of RUSSIA”, the Hero of Russia, Major-General Sergey Lipovoy to answer these questions.

“This is dangerous only for the possibility of a future political dialogue between the NATO countries, Ukraine and Russia,” the expert believes. – The alliance will not understand that attempts to force Russia to talk, using military pressure, will not bear fruit. In addition, they are putting their navy under attack, since in the event of any serious provocations, NATO ships will be at the bottom. Let me remind you that all of them are under the gun of missiles deployed in the Crimea. I emphasize that NATO’s military presence in the Black Sea is due to an attempt at political pressure on Russia. Provocations, trespassing are theoretically possible, but the NATO leadership is unlikely to accept this, understanding the consequences. In the Black Sea waters of their ships can be only 21 days. In addition, the ships should be no heavy weapons, and there is a limit on the scale of foreign fleets. Non-coastal countries can send a fleet to the Black Sea that does not exceed 2/3 of the strength of the strongest state, that is, Russia. Their total tonnage should not exceed 30 tons. Moreover, in order to enter the Black Sea, the same Americans need to request permission from Turkey to enter the Bosphorus. And not the fact that Turkey will miss them. Because Turkey does not need aggravation in the Black Sea, they value the balance there and do not want to break it. As for the actions of our Navy, they will be adequate to the current situation. As a rule, frigates of the Black Sea Fleet take to escort a group of NATO ships that have entered the Black Sea area and are kept under constant control. that is, Russia. Their total tonnage should not exceed 30 tons. Moreover, in order to enter the Black Sea, the same Americans need to request permission from Turkey to enter the Bosphorus.
