US expands military presence in the Black Sea region

78

The United States intends to expand its military presence in the Black Sea region. To this end, the US military will modernize the air base in the city of Campia-Turzii in Romania.


The large-scale modernization of the airbase will cost the Americans $ 152 million, work will begin this summer. Payment for the work will be carried out within the framework of the European Deterrence Initiative, launched by the United States in 2014 with the aim of containing "aggressive Russia."

Exactly what changes are planned to be carried out at the airbase is not reported, but based on the fact that the US Air Force intends to further deploy heavy military transport aircraft, as well as the latest fighters, the work will concern the runways and the construction of additional hangars for equipment.

The US Air Force says that after the modernization of the Campia-Turziy air base, it will provide an opportunity for American fighters to "quickly respond" to any threats arising in the Black Sea region, understanding Russia as a threat, of course. In addition, in the future, the Americans intend to use the Romanian airbase as a rotational hub for NATO troops.

In Romania itself, the US initiative was taken calmly, Bucharest and Washington are actively cooperating in the military sphere, they even adopted a joint "road map" in the sphere of defense, designed for 10 years. It pays special attention to the "security of the Black Sea region" against the background of Moscow's revitalization.

      We can say that the State Department is working perfectly well.

      The same cannot be said about our Foreign Ministry officials.

      Our people manage to ask here and there.

      Why insult the employees of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs without knowing their powers, or do you think that carrying doggy nonsense, like the Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany (Melnik), you can achieve something?

      Our diplomats act on the basis of the country's capabilities and not vice versa, and this is what we need to build on.

        And let them build.
        All the same, this base is not far away, Russian missiles will cover it quickly, if necessary. After the deployment of the US missile defense base, Romania is already in sight. Here, as they say, a barn burned down - burn down and a hut ... One more point on the map, that's all.

        On the other hand, we remember all those wonderful airfields and bases in Eastern Europe, which were taken over by NATO and the Americans in the 90s. Soviet troops were stationed there, and now the American ones are in charge.
        Wouldn't the same thing happen again? That is, when the "hegemon" is deflated, the hourglass can turn over again. And already our troops will enter the facilities built by the Americans. Anything has happened, there is nothing incredible in geopolitics!

        ... In addition to Syria, it does not want to provide Russia with a part of the territory for the construction of a military base, for example, in Cuba, or in Venezuela, or in Vietnam ... Just in memory of the past merits of the foreign policy of the USSR (the successor of which was the Russian Federation). It would be great - to tickle the nerves of American warriors in a completely innocent way of flying along the coast of strategists of the Tu-95 (160) type in various modifications ... good
        Or please the American AUGs with an unexpected surfacing in the Caribbean ... good
        This is called an adequate response to threats. And by shaking the air, it is useless to achieve complaisance and sympathy from the satellites who have gone crazy, knowing that in a biconvex scenario, their existence will be limited to a minute of time. Moreover, to convince the "strategists" who are "entrenched" overseas, who sleep and see it blazing on fire (either kneeling for mercy, or split into small autonomies, or getting involved in some kind of war with neighbors, etc., etc.) .p.) Russia.

      NATO regards the Yankes as the "one and only" organization responsible for the security of ALL of Eurasia.
      And so the latter more and more often assume exorbitant obligations.
      Relations will NEVER mend if the geopolitical interests of the Russian Federation are considered a threat to the interests of the United States.

        The patrol ship of the coastal zone of the Royal Navy of Great Britain OPV Trent on Tuesday, May 18, moored at one of the berths of the Odessa sea station, writes ArmyInform.

        During his visit, joint training with Ukrainian naval sailors is planned on board the ship.

        There will also be a joint training at sea like PASSEX.

        OPV Trent is a new ship that entered the Royal Navy in August 2020.

      Nazar, what do you have against the Russian Crimea ??? Or naively think that in a different scenario the Yankees would not have deployed their military bases where they are now? Naively, Gorbachev and Yeltsin also took their word for it, and NATO went east. You are constantly distressed from the Russian Crimea, admit it already, ease your soul.

        I remember very well when, during the rule of pockmarked Yushchenko in Ukraine, there were even advertisements that it was good to be in NATO.
        But! ... Ordinary people said no! And all that hype died out.
        But now you don't even need to go to the TV, but many of the same ordinary people (and politicians, every second) nod their manes that they need to join NATO ...
        And all sorts of bases appear. Now in Odessa, then in Berdyansk, then in Georgia, then in Romania ...

      Well, let’s NATO also start in Sevastopol-Crimea! And then what ? And then our North Caucasus will fall down. The Yankees will find someone to shove a magic bag of dollars to set fire to the jihad ... Russia will be completely squeezed out of the Black Sea. RUSSIAN by the way !!! And so, in principle, a civil war and the disintegration of the Russian Federation will begin ... Sevastopol and the Crimea is that carnation, without which the structure is destroyed ...

There, the same Romanians with Bulgarians went to the United States, the "corpse" of the VD did not have time to cool down. And as a result of the resolution of the Cuban missile crisis, the United States was able to calm down for a while. Russia has lousy cards in its hands (just like the USSR in 1961-62), so either fold or bluff up the stakes. sad

                      This simplicity is worse than stealing. There is one option - to "soak" the first stoker to death, who will use the firewood.
                      Russia is showing the world its complete dependence on (???) the interests of the oligarchs. This is because of their fears of losing their "honestly plundered", we are marking time without taking decisive action, fearing to incur the wrath of the overseas hegemon. The time of shame has passed, the time of war and shame is coming. Does anyone have doubts that this pack of rabid dogs will go away on a good-bye? Or does anyone have doubts that it was we who, with our passivity, provoked Hitler? The scenario can be played out with new characters.

    To this end, the US military will modernize the air base in the city of Campia-Turzii in Romania.

    And no aircraft carriers of 500 billion rubles are needed.

      And if you give a warning. that if any aircraft from this airbase approaches the airspace of the Russian Federation, it will be erased from the face of Romania? This is the military doctrine of the Russian Federation and the protection of sovereignty. There is no way to crush with tanks - you need to clean it up in a different way, regardless of screeching and screaming.

    US expands military presence in the Black Sea region

    Well, what can I tell you, someday we will come to visit you in Cuba or have already come ..
    I read somewhere recently that the current Russian Black Sea Fleet in terms of its power and capabilities has practically been compared with the USSR World Cup.

    Surprisingly, two years ago I read about these plans for Romania in the "Naval Aviation News" (not quite sure what exactly in this magazine, but still) there was a tiny note. What surprises me is that the Yankees have a certain strategy. But any strategy is a continuation of the plan. And what kind of plan is this when the "jump" airfields are getting closer to our border? I will allow myself a little emotion - it annoys me.

      This strategy dates back to the times of the American Civil War, called "Anaconda Loop". And its modern successful implementation is described here https://ria.ru/20210331/raspad-1603604939.html sad

        I read it. Thank.
        The Anglo-Saxons understand the world only as Anglo-Saxon. They do not want to live in friendship with a different vision of the world. So I understand. It's sad, because we are going to war. On the other hand, the Commander-in-Chief mentioned the blow to the decision-making centers. Well, if so then I will smile in the next world.

    and everything goes to the fact that they will be imposed on all sides and our ships will be literally blocked in the bases because at the exit there will be NATO frigates and aviation on guard, and from the ground everything will be at gunpoint of missile strike systems from Georgia and Ukraine under crossfire.

      Aha, and ours will wait until they are blocked, and then express concern! This is a joke! Who will let them do this ?!

    We also need to "expand our presence" in the Mexican region. hi Namely, to revive the naval base in Cuba and by doing so "put a hedgehog in the Americans' pants!", As one well-known Soviet leader said! good

      no one will expand anything because where are the assets of our elite? obviously not at dachas in the suburbs, and they left Cuba at the suggestion of good uncle Vova, who at one time was so carried away by friendship with friends and partners in the west that he announced that we did not need bases abroad. On October 17, 2001, President Vladimir Putin announced at a meeting at the Ministry of Defense that the military bases in Lourdes and Cam Ranh were being dismantled. Now we were simply sent from Vietnam with our proposals, and Cuba is no longer waiting with hugs.

    In Romania itself, the US initiative was taken calmly
    Romanians in their repertoire - they took Hitler calmly, and attacked the Union calmly too. They will finally calm down only when they get snot again.
