The Pentagon rejected accusations of Russia in violation of the Montreux Convention

The Pentagon rejected accusations of Russia in violation of the Montreux ConventionPentagon spokesman Eileen Laynez denied accusing Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov of violating the Montreux Convention on the Rules for Staying US Ships in the Black Sea.


Commenting on the statements of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Laynez said that the US Navy is acting there in accordance with international law and soon intend to send another ship to the region, reports RIA "News».

As Lavrov said on Thursday, Moscow drew attention to the fact that the extension of the stay of US ships in the Black Sea often exceeded the deadlines set by the international convention of Montreux. According to him, the Montreux Convention introduces absolutely clear criteria limiting the location of naval vessels of foreign non-Black Sea states, both in terms of tonnage and duration of stay.

Lavrov drew attention to the fact that recently the United States naval ships extended their stay beyond the established deadlines a couple of times, and the extension did not always fit into those rules that exist within the framework of the convention.

“US Navy ships operate in the Black Sea in accordance with international law as part of normal practice. In the near future, we intend to send another ship there to participate in exercises and operations in order to improve interaction and increase readiness. This shows our commitment to working closely with allies and partners in the Black Sea region, aimed at strengthening maritime security and the capabilities of the naval forces, ”said Laynez.

The representative of the Pentagon did not specify which ship the US Navy is heading to the Black Sea. “We do not discuss in advance the specific details of the movement of ships. Further details will be announced at the appropriate time, ”she said.

Earlier, White House spokesman Josh Ernest reported that the US Navy extended the tenure of the Truxtun destroyer in the Black Sea. However, he noted that "there are additional resources that are sent to the Black Sea by the US Navy."

At the same time, Lavrov said that Moscow is calling on not to inflate the situation with the movement of military units in the Rostov region, where on March 31 the 15 battalion of the separate motorized infantry brigade of the Central Military District completed the field exit to the ground.

“I draw your attention to the fact that there are no restrictions on the movement of military units of the Russian Federation on the territory of the Russian Federation, and our Western partners recognize that in the legal sense there are no problems,” said Lavrov.

The minister also noted that Russia sent a request to NATO regarding plans to build up the alliance’s forces in the territories of Eastern European states. “Of course, we proceed from the fact that certain rules also apply in relations between Russia and NATO, including the Rome Declaration, including the basic act of the Russia-NATO Council, according to which there should not be a permanent military additional presence on the territory of Eastern European states”, - said Lavrov.

According to him, Russia expects from NATO "not just a response, but a response that will be fully based on respect for the rules agreed with us."

      In order for international agreements to be respected, an arbitrator is needed, which in case of which will put the scoundrel in place. Will the states not punish themselves? :)

        And then you need an orbiter that will resolve the first referee .. etc ... In this particular case, you just need to apply sanctions to a specific ship that does not leave the Black Sea. If you do not heed the ship to drown.

    Yes, a purely American approach "what is allowed to Jupiter is not allowed ... to everyone else." It's time to work more actively on this "front" ... The United States violated something, immediately a question to the UN Security Council, for discussion on a wider scale ... It's time to ask the Turkish authorities why they are "turning a blind eye" to such violations ... Enough to sit and remain silent, the louder we ask, the more often we wake up to remind the world of the US affairs - the better it will be for us ...

      I agree with you completely. Condemnation of violations should be voiced as much as possible at various international venues - the UN Security Council, General Assembly, G20, BRICS, etc. But Turkey, which is supposed to control the execution of the Montreux Treaty, should be given a "slap in the head" in a quiet way so that it does not yawn and relax. And how to cheer up Turkey - our government has enough funds.

    Nothing needs to be expected from NATO. Act guided by national interests. They do not fulfill their promises and over and over again violate all agreements. They stick their nose everywhere. It would be necessary to shorten it!

      At the end of the 80s, in the wake of another Arab crisis, the Yusovites entered the aircraft carrier into the Mediterranean Sea, immediately over it flew the "disoriented" TU22, the Americans understood the hint - the aircraft carrier was gone!
      So now we must act, and then we can always apologize for violated borders!

          It seems like a TU-22M3 regiment is being thrown to the Crimea and not only, there PAK FA will be basified
          the Tu-22M3 combat radius, plus the cruise missile flight range, is enough to completely cover the entire territory of Western Europe, including the United Kingdom. To countries of Eastern Europe, the bomber will be able to fly even at a constant supersonic speed.

    Interesting info:

    In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference, the USSR tried to revise the Montreux Convention, requiring a naval base in the Dardanelles and a favorable regime of passage through the straits. At the same time, territorial claims of the USSR against Turkey were put forward. The USSR refused these requirements in 1953 after the death of Stalin, with the advent of Khrushchev to power.

      The backlog in the USSR for "screens" was excellent, but some structural problems remained unresolved and the physics of the boundaries of the media was not overcome, and, accordingly, the huge energy consumption of "screens" of such dimensions.
