Western experts: "The Black Sea is a Russian" shooting range ", and the ships of the US Navy are easy targets in it"

74

Two US Navy ships bound for the Black Sea currently pass south of the Italian maritime border in the Mediterranean Sea. Recall that the Pentagon announced the notification of the Turkish authorities that the warships will proceed through the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus and will be in the Black Sea water area until May 4. American sources said this was due to "Russian military activity on the borders of Ukraine."


Against this background, military experts are considering the question that the Black Sea for American warships is "not the best option to threaten Russia." First, you need to understand that Russia has impressive strike capabilities in the Crimea and the Kuban. Secondly, the stay of the ships of the non-Black Sea powers is limited in time by the Montreux Convention - therefore, the American command must constantly keep in mind the fact that within a few days after entering the Black Sea, its waters will need to be abandoned.

When in the Black Sea waters, US Navy warships turn into targets for Russian coastal missile systems and not only for them. Actions of submarines of the Black Sea fleet The Russian Federation is capable of at least depriving American ships of operational space - in the event of a direct threat to Russian borders from the US Navy. In such a situation, the presence of representatives of the American naval forces in the Black Sea turns not into a demonstration of force, but into a variant of targets locked from almost all sides.

In the American media, by the way, observers who understand the situation also note that it is hardly worth experiencing a feeling of euphoria about the fact that the US Navy ships are entering the Black Sea. The reason lies precisely in the fact that such ships in the event of an armed conflict can become "easy prey for the Russians."

Western experts:

The Black Sea is a Russian shooting range, and the two US Navy ships in it are easy targets.

Earlier, the American The Drive noted the total military advantage of Russia in the Black Sea.

It should be noted that not so long ago the US press stated that the task of the US Navy is "to demonstrate to Russia that the Black Sea is not its internal lake."

                As a child, I was in his place. Played with strands. There was a chest in the corridor, and I decided to hide in it. It folded into the shape of an embryo, and in order to lower the lid, I had to exhale the air. He exhaled and heard the chest loop clink. I tried to inhale and lift the lid - it does not work. Of all the kids, only one girl noticed that the lid of the chest was moving, which she told her parents about when she came home. Her father set me free.

        These were the families who greeted the Nazis as "liberators." And you did not advise them to no longer return to the Russia they hated ??? There is definitely nothing behind them in terms of supporting various organizations banned in Russia there? Maybe their failure to return will save someone's lives. These are potential traitors.

    The head of the European People's Party (EPP) Manfred Weber called for tougher European and American sanctions against Russia, TASS reports.
    Weber said that Russia "continues the course of dangerous provocations", and "the strengthening of the military presence around the east of Ukraine is a test of the West."

    According to him, "the answer to this must be unequivocal and strong."

    “The time of metered sanctions in this case will pass. A large-scale freezing of oligarchs' accounts or disconnecting Russia from SWIFT should become real options in the event of an escalation, ”he added. wassat .....

    There is, as it were, a standard situation - yes, ships have entered, we observe, we send ships, planes. But if you do not send, but watch quietly like a sniper, the detection means only work for reception. And send pulses in the radio range of 1.5 - 2 meters, when people go crazy with fear.

    Sergei Lavrov handed over declassified documents to the OSCE countries, where the leaders of the European countries assured that NATO was not moving to the East. He noted that NATO during the last two summits made decisions that fundamentally change the situation with armaments in Europe. We reminded of this yesterday, and, by the way, I passed on to my colleagues documents that were declassified when Mikhail Gorbachev talked with Helmut Kohl. , Eduard Shevardnadze talked with Hans-Dietrich Genscher, and (US Secretary of State) Jim Baker was also a participant in these negotiations, it is very clearly written there that all these figures from Germany, the USA - and François Mitterrand also participated in these negotiations - they clearly spoke that there will be no NATO advance to the East, and even more so, NATO's military infrastructure will not approach the borders of our country, "Lavrov said.

      Today, 10:24, Sergei Lavrov handed over declassified documents to the OSCE countries, where European leaders assured about the non-advancement of NATO to the East. ...
      Gennady, what kind of memory does Geyropa have ?! They need to be reminded every day of God, and three times on weekends! And preferably Iskander.

    To prove to a liar that he is a liar, and to a sharper that he is a sharper, of course, you can. The problem is, they never admit it, even when faced with facts and evidence.

    Better right away - with a candelabrum in the face.

    In such a situation, the presence of representatives of the American naval forces in the Black Sea turns not into a demonstration of force, but into a variant of targets locked from almost all sides.


    We do not want war and do not need to provoke us.

    In general, this is a positive trend on the part of NATO. More often and more, this should be the motto. So that in an hour "h" to pop immediately more, "disassemble" into composite airfields based in Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey. In general, organize a "breach" on the southern flank at once. And let them do the maneuvering.

    the task of the US Navy is "to demonstrate to Russia that the Black Sea is not its inland lake."
    Fortunately, thanks to the events of 2014, it is!
