American General: Because of Russia, the summer in the Ukrainian Black Sea region will be bad and tense
Because of the Russian Federation, the summer in the Ukrainian Black Sea region will be bad and "hot". In August or September, tensions are expected in the region.
This prediction was made during a briefing yesterday online, US General Ben Hodges.
This Lieutenant General was previously the commander of US forces in Europe, and is now engaged in strategic research at the Center for European Policy Analysis.
The general believes that in order to resist the "Russian aggression", the US and NATO must increase their military presence in the Black Sea region. He does not believe that at the end of the large-scale exercises near the Ukrainian borders, the units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were withdrawn to their places of permanent deployment.
- declares the gallant American general.
He suggests that Moscow's next step will be an exacerbation in the Black Sea region, which, according to Ben Hodges, Russia will certainly provoke in late summer or early autumn.
Earlier, the general said that Russia is constantly looking for an excuse to attack Ukraine. And the first sign that her "insidious plans" are beginning to come true, says Hodges, will be the emergence of military hospitals near the Ukrainian border.
Apparently, General Hodges is not aware of the parliamentary elections in Russia in the fall. Hence, all the forecasts of the American expert look untenable.
