The American general complained about the actions of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation

Russia is making every effort to block the exercises of the North Atlantic Alliance in the waters of the Black Sea. This is exactly the statement made by American General Ben Hodges in an interview with the Ukrainian news outlet Segodnya.


The American general complained about the actions of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation


The general complained about the actions of the Black Sea fleet RF.

The former commander of the American ground forces in Europe believes that Russia (the Black Sea Fleet), whenever it becomes known about the locations of NATO exercises in the Black Sea, "closes all access to them."

Hodges argues that it was this form of temporary blockade of Odessa that Russia used this year, thereby disturbing Romania and other allies in the alliance with its actions.

The solution to this problem, according to the American general, is possible by building up NATO military forces in the Black Sea in order to further ensure the freedom of movement of ships and protect the forces of the alliance.

Recall that at the beginning of July this year in the northwestern part of the Black Sea region, the naval exercises of the North Atlantic military unit Sea Breeze 2019 were held, in which ships and aviation NATO members and their allies. The Russian Foreign Ministry called such military maneuvers a "dangerous idea."

The very statement of the American general that he is not satisfied with the actions of the Russian Federation in the Black Sea is surprising. In this case, Russian generals could well have declared that Russia is not satisfied with US actions somewhere in the Caribbean Sea or off the coast of Alaska.

              Comrades, but Astra is almost right: an attack against one of the NATO ships is considered an attack against the WHOLE bloc, and what for do we have such hemorrhoids, when can we expect to interfere with other means?

    In theory, it is necessary to work out a joint decision with Turkey to enter into a new international treaty prohibiting the presence in the Black Sea of ​​warships of countries that do not belong to the countries of the Black Sea basin. We do not need anything at all that today all African and Latin American countries can play exercises in the Black Sea. wassat

      This is a difficult matter, because in addition to Turkey in the Black Sea region there are countries like "Albertas Sesternyovas" Bulgaria, Romania, Georgia, Ukraine. Any convention passes through international organizations that play in a foreign field and according to the system "the worse, the better."

        If Turkey agrees with the Russian Federation, then the rest will have to agree, all the more there are precedents for spitting on international law (USA). And the consequences of this and countermeasures should be calculated by our Foreign Ministry. Then decide based on the price of this action.

    Sir Hodges! Russia is in its Black Sea, and can do whatever it wants, even dancing a polka-butterfly, when Russian ships appear in the area near the Nantucket lighthouse and in the Chesapeake Bay, then you can express your displeasure. But now, according to the Russian proverb, "Whose cow would bellow, and yours would be silent."

    The general complained about the actions of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
    The poor man was offended by the fact that the Russian fleet controls NATO exercises in the sea, along which the state border of Russia passes. But the borders of the United States directly pass in a completely different place. Where the American fleet appears, nothing but trouble is to be expected.

    Russia is making every effort to block the exercises of the North Atlantic Alliance in the waters of the Black Sea.
    If the allotment is so, then ours are doing everything right, fewer and fewer of them like striped ones will swim in the Black Sea, and it will be even better if they will be closed to the sea at all.

    After the United States withdrew from the INF Treaty and immediately began testing previously banned missiles, Russia has the full right to place submarines and ships near American territorial waters, at military bases in Venezuela.

    If, after the American generals, the American admirals begin to "cry", then you can be 100% happy !!! In the meantime, I just want to ask this general in the "spirit" of the Bender's Axis: I am like a moKryak, I want to ask you, do you walk or swim on the Black Sea)))?

    They can build up their forces in the Black Sea by passing their troughs under the flags of our sworn brothers, the Romanians and Bulgarians. But, then they will not be able to resent our rams and bulk. since non-citizens are at risk n and and. We can "lose" a lot of floating objects in the fairways of the exercise.

    Disgrace: the Russians are interfering with us. Vovka in the end "spoiled boy": instead of applauding the decisions of "Uncle Sam" he begins to interfere. In the days of B.N. it was good, but now

    The Black Sea has always been Russian and Turkish. What the hell do you need in this puddle? You spoiled your relationship with both owners? Your problems, and shove your Wishlist and indignant into yourself ...

    Nothing, they will somehow endure the presence of the Black Sea Fleet in its own sea, otherwise they have forgotten a little that this sea from the 10th to the 14th century was generally called Russian, and not so long ago it was practically closed for NATO ships, but in vain, and in general, coming you have to knock on the door to visit, ask permission and wipe your feet at the entrance.
    And if you come to someone else's house with some other intentions, you yourself know what can happen.
