Former US ambassador to Kiev, Stephen Peifer commented on the situation in which the “hawks” in the US are calling to send American ships and ships of other NATO members to the Sea of ​​Azov.


The American diplomat explained why the US Navy does not need to go to the Sea of ​​Azov


According to the American diplomat, such a shipment looks meaningless, because of the geographical position and nature of the Sea of ​​Azov, Russia has a huge advantage in this region.

We will remind that earlier representatives of the Ukrainian authorities addressed Germany and other NATO countries with a proposal to introduce NATO warships into the Azov water area. In Germany, to which both the Ukrainian ambassador to Berlin and President Poroshenko addressed, rejected this idea, saying that it would not contribute to the world.

Approximately the same rhetoric was used by Peifer, noting that sending NATO ships to the Sea of ​​Azov could provoke a new conflict, “from which Ukraine will definitely not win.”

Peifer added that the entry of NATO warships into the Azov water area would also be a violation of the agreement that ships of third countries could not enter the Sea of ​​Azov without the consent of both Russia and Ukraine at the same time.

It should be noted here that for Ukraine, the breach of contracts has recently become the norm, and therefore, even from this contract, Kiev may well get out.

However, the former US ambassador warns Kiev against such a move. According to him, the withdrawal from the treaty may strike a blow to the security of Ukraine.

      Chapai also told Petka (or Anka the machine-gunner), take your time - let them come closer! smile
      The shorter the distance, the cheaper the ammunition and the higher the accuracy of the weapon. Let go of prisoners, and rename NATO ships

          In Russia there is no captives, since we are not at war with anyone, there is only detainees for illegal border crossing, and yes, they’ll be served back, or we’ll exchange or release under an amnesty, like Savchenko ...

        Share the skin of a dead animal? Well, the article explicitly states that the entry of NATO warships into the Sea of ​​Azov will at the same time violate the agreement that ships of third countries cannot enter the Sea of ​​Azov without the consent of both Russia and Ukraine. For Russia this means war or surrender, because otherwise, no one will respect and be afraid of us after that.

      I don’t know what about the information war, but on the neck there is a real chance to rake. And the Yankees are not as stupid as the late Zadornov spoke of them. When it smells like zvizdyulyami - they are very playfully think.

          Yes, even if they did. (Well, let's hypothetically assume this). Why would they trample there? Crossing three seas for a hat of crackers? Only for the sake of Peca saying: "We have power!"? The drone was enough for him that he flew along our borders. Well, they won't go to fight, really? Or is the value of photographs against the background of the Crimean bridge commensurate with the cost of diesel fuel needed for the road to us and back?

    The former ambassador reasoned reasonably. But sobriety of mind and elementary logic is not enough for American hawks. I don’t even want to talk about the Ukrainian government - everything is completely neglected there. Petya and the company decided that they were the most cunning and, after committing dirty tricks, expected NATO to rush to defend them. However, bite. In addition to the duty phrases and demands towards Russia, nothing more. Again, complete assault, from which out of habit they try to do it.

    ... He speaks the truth ... I remember in 2007 from Kazan, to the port of Kavkaz, I drove one company, I was dragging a barge with diesel fuel ... In clear, sunny, calm weather ... we ran aground ... Where did this aground come from, unknown. Urgently designated. After a year, a dry cargo ship skidded to this place, such as a river-sea .. passed, old lines were .. Checked where the aground went, it is unknown ...

    How inert we are. We are always waiting for the "roast rooster peck". Why not work ahead of the Duma and the Federation Council of the Russian Federation. Adopt a law in connection with the changes in the Kerch Strait - the construction of a bridge, which is
    strategic object of the Russian Federation. The admission of military vessels of other states (including for Ukraine) to the Sea of ​​Azov should be done only by agreement with the Russian Federation, indicating the maximum displacement, height and length of stay. Type of Montreux Convection along the Bosphorus, and we are for the passage under the Kerch bridge. And do not care about their howl. They will sing, they will sing, they will stop and forget about the Sea of ​​Azov, which had never interested anyone before. yes

      -On the principle of Iceland during the Cod Wars?
      Classics (obscene, though, that's why the text is incomplete, look in the internet):
      "Iceland (not listening). Fight, English rats! Your place is in gray Niflheim, under the heel of the great Hel! Behold the banner of the crow! Thor is with us!"
      USA (in panic). You are both members of NATO!
      Iceland (without looking back). No longer.
      USA (falling into chthonic horror). How is it not ?!
      Iceland. We will not fight side by side with cowardly English rats. We are leaving NATO. "

    Let them come in if they have nothing to do. Our fighters just let them barrage nearby, let them go to supersonic next to their ships. They are told to their sailors that they are going to fight the savages, that they will be met by boats with bears and balalaikas. And they see that fighters are flying, the same as their F-18s, there are the same ships, laser tags of target indicators appear on the sides, EW stations are working. And this is a revelation for them. Therefore, they panic many.
