The European Parliament is concerned about the entry of ships of the Russian Navy in the Spanish Ceuta

68
Eleven European MPs sent an appeal to the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini in connection with the calls of Russian ships fleet to the Spanish port of Ceuta, passes RIA News the message of the newspaper El Pais.




Among the initiators of the appeal are representatives of the Baltic republics, Poland, as well as nationalists from Catalonia and Flanders.

Deputies claim that “Russian ship calls to Ceuta (the Spanish semi-anclave in North Africa) play a fundamental role in providing Russian troops in Ukraine and may violate the sanctions regime,” the newspaper writes.

According to the information, “the ultraconservative American Center for Strategic Studies Heritage Foundation is behind the appeal of eurodeputies.”

The article notes that "the initiators of the appeal are staunch supporters of the British presence in Gibraltar and accuse Spain of hypocrisy, because it allows Russian ships to go to Ceuta, but does not allow NATO ships to pass directly between this semi-anclave and Spanish ports."

According to the newspaper, “since 2011, more than 50 vessels of the Russian Navy came to Ceuta to relax the crew and refuel.” This circumstance, in the opinion of the author of the article, “turned the Spanish port into the main base of the Russian Navy in the western Mediterranean”.

At the same time, diplomatic sources of the publication indicated that the calls of Russian ships did not violate the sanctions regime, and "Spain did not receive complaints from the EU and NATO in this regard."

These "visits are associated only with the navigation of ships, but not with military activities, whether they are exercises or anything else," said the source.

In turn, the Russian embassy in Madrid expressed surprise at the hype raised around the routine practice of calling at ports of foreign countries. "Entries are carried out after obtaining the appropriate permit, in full compliance with international and domestic legislation," the embassy stressed.

          Russophobia is reduced to psychosis and paranoia. In an extreme situation, as you know, vision, hearing, and reaction are aggravated. Soon, even if somewhere in the Russian hinterland, the old grandfather Kondraty farted, picking up a bucket of water from the well, they instantly get out of control and they really have "Kondraty enough!"
          Type: "Russian launched a rocket at me!"

        and why did the Flanders get worried? Well, it’s clear with the Balts. Judging by everything, it’s spring! Aggravation and all that.

      By the way, such a situation is a good example of the fact that, by and large, not NATO is using Poland with its eternal syndrome of "Degraded Great Poland" and "Dwarf Haters" of the Baltic states, and they are using NATO (like the EU) to advance (not even US interests) their Wishlist and testimony of their "significance" in world geopolitics ...

      Yes, they are more concerned about their salaries. Therefore, they inflate an elephant from a fly. NATO cannot deal with modern challenges, and this organization has produced a good half of itself. Here she has a good old record about the “Soviet threat”, now about the “Russian threat”, and they are exploiting it.

    Why do the Spaniards need this? Yes, due to the fact that this is also money when ships enter their service and the rest of sailors. If the EU pays extra for the rejection of these ships, then let them compensate for the lost loss.

    By reading such statements, you begin to think about the mental state of the applicants. I always have a personal opinion that one should treat enemies from the point of view - the enemy is smart, insidious, prepared, but cognitive dissonance occurs when everyone sees a square, but some of those who see drooling shout that it is black .... It seems that tolerance, democracy, liberalism are terms that determine the level of the disease, such as schizophrenia or manic-depressive psychosis, etc. Soon they will start throwing their carcasses from the windows warning them with wild cries - Rrruusskie go! And this is bad, because it’s almost impossible to calculate the actions of nerds.

    connection of ship calls to Ceuta with the provision of Russian troops in Ukraine?

    Apparently, according to these European deputies, Ukraine is located somewhere in Africa, or in the Middle East. But definitely not far from Turkey and Israel. And their next concern will be that in Tartus and at the base in Khmeimim, Russian troops are grouping and training to invade Ukraine. So Ukraine is also not far from Syria, literally bordered. wink
