British press: Putin sends Biden warning of rising military power in the Black Sea

37

Russia conducted a series of military exercises against the background of two US warships entering the Black Sea, thereby demonstrating its military power to the West. Writes about this the author of an article for the British edition of the Daily Express.


The United States sent its warships to the Black Sea - the flagship of the Sixth fleet command ship USS Mount Whitney and URO destroyer USS Porter. As stated in Washington, the ships were sent to conduct joint operations with pro-NATO allies and alliance partners. Russia greeted the Americans with military exercises of the Black Sea Fleet, thereby showing that they were not welcome here.

As the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense reported, both American warships were taken under continuous surveillance by the forces and means of the Black Sea Fleet. Thus, Russian ships and submarines track all the actions of the Americans conducting their own exercises in the Black Sea.

By the actions of Russian ships, Putin sends Biden a warning about the growth of Russia's military power in the Black Sea, the author of the article believes.

The Russians demonstrate their strength, as if saying that they are not afraid of NATO ships and are ready to respond to possible incidents.

In addition, the demonstration of force is also aimed at preventing a new provocation by NATO ships off the coast of Crimea, which Russia considers to be its own after the events of 2014.

The article resonated with British readers who commented on it quite actively. Some commentators reacted negatively to the actions of the Russian fleet in the Black Sea, claiming the right to free navigation. Another part criticized the United States for escalating the situation off the coast of Russia.

    Of course not happy.
    Interestingly, what would this newspaper write on the entry of Russian ships where is the thread in the Hudson Bay, or there at the mouth of the Thames?

        Well, yes. What if they don't pass by, but turn "not there"? Where should they then flee from the islands?

        The English Channel is the English Channel. Public road. But in the Black Sea, they are absolutely fucking doing. Like us, for example, in the Gulf of Mexico.

          Not only Russia has access to the Black Sea and, logically, it is not for her to decide who to sail there, especially the Bosphorus beyond Turkey.

                Not by any "our", but by the absolutely obvious: the non-Black Sea states are absolutely not concerned with the affairs of the Black Sea. Except for peaceful ships. Or even military, but exclusively with friendly visits, with the consent of all the Black Sea states.

                Do they have a choice? Why is the world community as a whole and Turkey in particular so opposed to the annexation of Crimea to Russia? Are they so worried about the offended Okrainian state? It didn’t stop them at all ... But the Russian Crimea, with the Russian military bases, from which the entire Black Sea and most of the coastal states are shot with missiles, is like a bone in the throat ... Being the masters of the Bosphorus, in strategic terms, was very great ... And now, when Russia is able to sink any ship in the Bosphorus without leaving the sea, it is no longer so interesting ...

    Such statements are not often found in the Western media. Unfortunately, they drown) in the Russophobic stream.

    So the British agree that their ship was a provocation. Commendable.

    Shipping concerns civil ships, and military ships.
    Nobody bothers them to walk around the World Cup within the framework of contracts, just a little under the gun.

    I remember one American journalist girl more than clearly showed the essence of the matter on a map. "This (shows on the map) is the United States of America. This is Russia. And here is the Baltic Sea" (where the next meeting of the American warship and our planes took place). "The question is - who's on whose doorstep ?!"

    If such elementary things are clear even to an American girl, then their rulers understand this even more so. They are literally pushing the whole world towards disaster.

    The Black Sea is a puddle for the oceanic fleet. Therefore, it makes no sense to bring something serious here, the Russians will sink them with coastal complexes. But to create a nervous situation, to catch up with fear through the media, this is exactly the role of these two ships

    Russia conducted a series of military exercises against the background of two US warships entering the Black Sea, thereby demonstrating its military power to the West.

    Russia must show the West that the presence of third-party warships in the inner Black Sea is unacceptable from a security point of view. Electronic warfare means should make impossible any NATO exercises in the Black Sea. Russia is obliged to notify the participants that in the event of any provocations and violations, the perpetrators will be destroyed as sources of military aggression, and not chase destroyers that do not recognize Russian sovereignty.

    Earlier, in news articles based on texts from foreign media, at least the name of the author was indicated. The editors never gave a link to the source.
    Today, even the author has disappeared.
    As it turned out, this is Ciaran McGrath.
    Why is it so?

    When the Russian Navy begins to conduct its exercises in the Gulf of Mexico, then this will be a "warning".
    In the meantime, this is pure defense.

    Americans, while they behave well. They stand in Batumi, eat churchkhella, wash them down with wine and watch dances with daggers. This is a commotion in Georgia, Mishiko was urgently translated, “your house is turm.” This should have been done right away. And she is not, such a bummer. I hope methods of physical influence were applied to him after he attacked the medical staff and broke expensive medical equipment. Today I would take him for a walk in the prison yard, along with the children who were planted during his time. Let them talk to him, and tell him how they got there.
