Military Review

Pentagon spokesman: Deployment of US Navy warships in the Black Sea will be a special signal for Russia

78

Not so long ago, on the pages of "Military Review" material was published that at one time the reunification of the Crimea with Russia thwarted American plans to create a base for US Navy ships in Sevastopol on a rotational basis. That publication has been criticized by individual readers and experts. There were statements that "no US base was going to be created in Crimea" and that "statements about the readiness to deploy US Navy ships in Sevastopol have no reliable basis."


In this regard, it is worth paying attention to the material that aired on the American channel CNN with reference to representatives of the US military department. The CNN report says that the Pentagon is considering the possibility of sending US warships to the Black Sea in the coming weeks "to demonstrate support for Ukraine in connection with the growing concentration of Russian troops at its borders."

From a statement by a Pentagon spokesman:

The United States has regularly sent ships to the Black Sea in the past. But the deployment of US Navy warships in the Black Sea will be a special signal for Russia at this time.

The nuance is that before any entry into the Black Sea of ​​warships, a non-Black Sea country is obliged (on the basis of the Montreux Convention) to notify the Turkish authorities of its intention two weeks before direct passage through the straits.

In this regard, questions arise: was a notification of this kind sent to the Turks? If so, when exactly? A separate question: what does the statement about the "deployment of US warships in the Black Sea" mean? The last question is also relevant in connection with the fact that the aforementioned Montreux Convention limits the time spent by warships of countries that do not have access to the Black Sea in this very sea.

    As many as two, or how many are there? Well, if you put a "Yankee Go Home" poster between them, then of course. That, not that poster, well, excuse me, the Yankees have a place only in their home.

      As many as two, or how many are there?

      Who cares how much? I am interested in two other questions.

      Firstly, isn't it time to tell America at the HIGHEST level how many kilometers from Nuyork to Sevastopol and what herr they lost there? And how many minutes of flight of a good blank from neutral waters to the same Nuyorka.

      Secondly. And why does our Navy somehow feel sorry for the nerves of the staff members and do not walk in the Caribbean the way they do in the Black Sea? I think that if our boys would dry their vests under the Caribbean sun, the staff would have a headache about their own liver, and not about some 33-star Sevastopol unknown to anyone in America.

      Py.Sy. For critics in "hurray-patriotism". I am far from "urya urya". I just fought and I transfer the potential of our airborne forces to all our air forces. Over the past 30 years, a lot of things have changed in the army - only the boys have remained the same. Iron.

        and what herr did they lose there?

        Well, in principle, similar questions are asked, the truth about Syria. Only we will not wait for an answer. Well, in fact, what will they answer - "We are sitting here in the oil fields because rare dandelions grow here - we are protecting the environment"?
        And why does our Navy somehow feel sorry for the nerves of the staff and do not walk in the Caribbean?

        In addition to the submarine, there is nothing special to walk with. Large ships are not enough to display the flag, and frigates and corvettes are not enough to cross the oceans for the sake of this. But yes, they fly there regularly.

          Unfortunately, you are right. But the Black Sea should also be closed for the Ams. American ships in the Russian-Black Sea are suicide bombers. The entire sea is being shot at and shot by our missile systems, ships, aircraft.

            Well yes. You can anchor 13 miles off the coast of the United States and showcase a Neptune Day. With broadcast through the loudspeakers "Chunga-Changi" and other children's songs. And at the same time onboard helicopters so that they fly around with suspended weapons (real) and scatter bright buoys with tied colored balloons with helium around the ship. Periodically, you can turn on the ship's siren (which is declared a combat alarm), modulating its sound with some melody. Yes, even the march of an empire from Star Wars. Also, using standard means of setting smoke screens, let off colored smokes: either tricolor colors, or just cheerful colors.

    Of course, they can deploy ships, but in this case it is very little to turn and come back. But seriously, this is all a game on the nerves. There was also in Georgia at one time and someone even went to the bottom, although the Georgian ship was not American.

    "Montreux" will simply be thrown into the trash can. Diplomats and journalists will come up with something to justify. And Psaki clucks this "reason".
    It makes no sense to rely on Russia's international law. The IMF, in spite of the "war", is lending to Ukraine. Ukraine's war crimes are not "tribunalized". The High Courts forgive Yanukovych 3 billion and fine Gazprom for gas supplies. And so on, etc. So, it makes no sense to discuss "Motryona".

    Trying to scare us! They can drive as many destroyers there as possible within the Montreux convention in terms of tonnage and quantity, but this is just an imitation of muscle flexing. Near our coast, the destroyers can do little in the event of an armed conflict, because the more insolent the Yankees will behave towards Russia, the more the chances of going to the bottom are.

    How they pulled up with their signals ...
    I don’t read such notes, but there are enough headings: "They sent a signal ... A special signal ... Will be a signal ..."
    Is this a daily routine for them or what? Cast it, put it aside, and scribbles about the signal.
    It seems that their brains there finally turned into foie gras.

      Aegis and Axes for the Bastions are about nothing, because in their combat guard everything you need, starting with the Shell and ending with the S-350 (or even the S-400 in the neighbors will accidentally be laughing!)

    A separate question: what does the statement about the "deployment of US warships in the Black Sea" mean? The last question is also relevant due to the fact that the aforementioned Montreux Convention limits the time spent by warships of countries that do not have access to the Black Sea in this very sea.

    Let all Westerners and Turks spit saliva on this convention if necessary: ​​where to run to complain about violations? At the UN? lol

    Only Bastions, Balls, Black Sea Fleet and Strategic Nuclear Forces aviation are the levers for the implementation of the convention and good behavior of amers.

    In light of Erdogan's decision to build a canal between the Mediterranean and the Black Seas, the Montreux Convention, which deals with the strait and only it, will sink into oblivion.
    PS 14 Turkish asdmirals were accused of treason and inappropriate chatter, some were arrested on suspicion of another military conspiracy for speaking out against the construction of this channel.

      the Montreux convention, which deals with the strait and only it, will sink into oblivion.
      The presence of the new channel will in no way affect the provisions of the convention on limiting the total tonnage of foreign warships and the duration of their stay in the Black Sea.

      Merikatos is trying to put pressure on us. But whether it will come to serious consequences is unlikely. They have such a mania, aircraft carrier ships for intimidation. And if they got a ride in Yugoslavia, then Russia is no longer what it was at the end of the 90s of the last century. AND NOT THE RULERS !!!

    Merikatos tries to push psychologically. To fight and die in thousands - and this is how it should be in the end - at еneral-mericatos should have been postponed since P. Harbor. But that was their base. But are the Merikatos ready to die for the unnecessary? Most likely no.

    The problem of the Americans in the Black Sea is that by military standards it is a puddle. And coastal PCs shoot through the sea up to the Dardanelles, it will not work there, only if Ukraine officially formalizes the US Navy base on its territory, but the Americans are not as stupid as it seems

    I in no way believe that the Yankees will dare to risk their skins for Ukraine. Their voters will not understand that their zinc-clad jones were sent home by the thousands. But on the other hand, if they are serious, they are unlikely to attack first in Donbas. You need a reason, and for this you need a provocation. Zelensky is hanging out there right now. won't he become the same Ferdinand -2?

    the author forgot about the tonnage of ships. The Montreux Convention states:
    The total tonnage of military vessels of non-Black Sea states in the Black Sea should not exceed 30 thousand tons (with the possibility of increasing this maximum to 45 thousand tons in case of an increase in the naval forces of the Black Sea countries) with a stay of not more than 21 days.

    Before Gorbachev, the Black Sea was Soviet, not a single bourgeois one flew (I will not say about ships), the rare flights of the Turkish Air Force up to 50-70 km. was the Warsaw Pact. V.D. no, most of the Black Sea coast is a NATO country, so the Black Sea is now not Soviet, but Russian.
