Ukraine asked NATO to strengthen presence in the Black Sea

The North Atlantic Alliance agreed to strengthen the presence of its forces in the Black Sea region, such a decision was made following a telephone conversation between NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Ukrainian Defense Minister Andriy Taran.


According to reports, the head of the Ukrainian military department Andriy Taran and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, during a telephone conversation, came to the conclusion that the situation in the Black Sea region is deteriorating due to the significant strengthening of Russia, which "is changing the balance of forces in the region." The parties agreed to strengthen NATO's presence in the region.

The parties agreed to strengthen the presence of forces on the land, sea and in the airspace of the Black Sea region by increasing air patrols and the presence of naval ships of the alliance’s member countries

- said in a statement posted on the website of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

In addition, the parties agreed on the exchange of operational information on the situation in the region. Taran also invited NATO forces to take part in the exercises scheduled for this fall and should be held in southern Ukraine.

Earlier, Ukraine received the status of partner for NATO enhanced capabilities. Kiev intends to use this status to expand its intelligence database on the situation in the Black Sea and on the Crimean peninsula.

    Ukraine asked NATO to strengthen presence in the Black Sea

    Honestly, not even funny. Any NATO trough in the Black Sea for Russia is simply a goal that can be destroyed at any time.
    And what is Ukraine spreading wider there and how deeply has NATO entered there - this is already food for the oral balancing act of anti-Russian hysteria smile

          "Ukraine asked NATO to strengthen its presence in the Black Sea"
          All foreign policy of Ukraine is based on "asked" - asked to impose sanctions. Asked for weapons. Asked to stand up. Asked to wait ... Without the support of Western countries and the United States. - as soon as they abandon her ... and her whole policy will collapse ...

            The West should support the revision of the Minsk agreements to resolve the situation in the Donbass, since they (the agreements) no longer reflect the reality, said Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine, Minister for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories Aleksey Reznikov.

            Reznikov expressed the corresponding opinion in an article for the Atlantic Council, fragments of which are quoted on July 9 by Ukrainian media. Https: //www.belvpo.com/113844.html/

    In order to really threaten the south of Russia, NATO ships generally do not make sense to go into the Black Sea. A hypothetical blow can also be made from the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea ...
    And all these calls of individual ships to the ports of Ukraine and Georgia are just a political action. Playing on the nerves of some and the ephemeral appearance of supporting others ..

      It is still more profitable to deliver a hypothetical blow from the waters of Bulgaria or even Odessa. At such an important moment, the anti-submarine escorted by 2 fighters will not even be an emergency, but a usual bunch. I don’t know how NATO works in moving coastal Rcomplexes. But I’m guessing in air defense / missile defense. They’ll send a shooter and at that moment not 1, as usual, but 3 reconnaissance complexes will start to pick up the coordinates of the targets .. And behind them the first echelon rolls down, shoots them out clearly radiations, the second echelon enters the zone to gain superiority and wanders off radiating ground targets. Departing quickly or with a sharp vertical maneuver, the second echelon frees up space for the third. echelons, divisions do not have time to recharge.
      It should be noted that in the 3rd wave the F-15/16/35/22 / fighters can already act as clean sky defenders if the air defense zones are suppressed and they can carry the body kit purely for air combat. Although the F-22 is declared as a pure air fighter --- these are all words, maybe. Americans are promoting the system such that it doesn’t matter which platform it launches, the most convenient platform will take control and strike. Therefore, with such a system, the system itself poses the greatest threat.

    situation in the Black Sea region is deteriorating due to the significant strengthening of Russia
    And if Russia was weak, then the situation in this region would be fine - is that probably what Stoltenberg should understand? Another thing is interesting - one (Taran) asked to strengthen the group, the other (NATO Secretary General) immediately strengthened. But does the chief chief of NATO have the right to single-handedly make decisions on unplanned redeployment of forces and assets? So the event was planned a long time ago and has nothing to do with the Ukrainian request. With the first, as well as his subordinate "cad dad," it’s clear that for them it’s a job to spoil Russia.

    Whatever, God forgive me, Ukraine ... peace in any region is ensured by a balance of forces. In recent years, Russia has really dramatically advanced in combat power, including the navy. Let them catch up with their tongues sticking out, this is useful. Ideally, of course, all normal people would like a partially demilitarized Black Sea, but the situation in the world does not allow to relax.
