General Hodges urged to create "uncomfortable for the Russians" conditions in the Black Sea

The ex-head of the US Ground Forces in Europe, retired Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, on the air of the Ukrainian YouTube channel "Iceland" called for the creation of "uncomfortable for the Russians" conditions in the Black Sea. In his opinion, the combination of efforts of the countries of the region (Turkey, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria and Georgia) can become the key to success.

The American believes that the aforementioned countries need to start helping each other for a qualitative confrontation with the Russian Federation. To begin with, they need to at least regularly exchange intelligence and all kinds of information.

The United States must also be part of this, we must implement measures that make the commander of the Black Sea Fleet feel very uncomfortable

- he clarified on March 31, 2021.

Hodges stressed that Ukraine's desire to acquire anti-ship missiles, as well as the deployment of the United States of its MQ-9 Reaper UAVs on Romanian soil, are serious steps that will give NATO the opportunity to “seize the initiative” from Moscow in the future.

In addition, Hodges explained that decisions on the entry of any country into NATO are taken collectively and the Russian Federation cannot directly influence this process. But there are states in the Alliance that are very concerned about Moscow's reaction and are not sure about Ukraine.

Note that for some time now is observed great activity of the NATO bloc in the region. The USA and Great Britain are especially zealous. In general, the Alliance member states and their allies regularly carry out maneuvers of their navies in the Black Sea and conduct all kinds of reconnaissance missions in the skies above it, moreover, in the immediate vicinity of the Russian borders.

    If the commander of the Black Sea Fleet does not feel comfortable, then the citizens from Turkey, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria and Georgia will not feel comfortable. Then let Hodges cry in unloading.

    Looking at the face of this obviously mentally retarded person, one shudders at the thought that the lives of so many people could possibly depend on him.

    In other words, the ex-general in whose head, like a Rottweiler, an endless militant is spinning, invites these Black Sea countries to engage in group suicide.

    While they are in office (generals from americosia) they cannot be seen or heard. And when they are given a kick, bonoparts wake up in them, they immediately rush into battle (theoretically) lol Their generals strongly resemble our deputies. They also quietly sleep in warm, soft, well-fed deputy chairs, they are not visible or audible, but before the elections they wake up abruptly, start screaming, waving their hands, promising a lot.

    The insidious "hegemons" are raging, their "Hodges", with great annoyance, still "bite their elbows"! wassat
    After all, the Crimea (naval base in Sevastopol and the American strategic dominance in the Black Sea region) was considered by Washington as theirs "in their pockets (they even started, even under Yanukovych-Azarov, quietly" settling in Sevastika ")", and then such a "cool bummer" in March 2014 ....?!

    It is not enough for us to read the nonsense carried by the current politicians and the military, so we also listen to retired idiots.

    Maybe the general is just collecting badges? laughing he already has the Badge of Honor of the Bundeswehr in gold (Germany), the Order of the White Lion, the Commander (Czech Republic), the Order of the Golden Fleece (Georgia), the Order of Merit for the Republic of Poland. there are no badges from Ukrainians, Romanians and Bulgarians.

    If you do not take into account the boats and the auxiliary fleet: Ukraine - a frigate (is it still in service?), A minesweeper and a landing ship; everything is clear with Moldova, the same with Georgia; Romania - submarine, 3 frigates, 4 corvettes; Bulgaria - 4 frigates, 2 corvettes. Yes, and take Turkey: 12 submarines, 17 frigates, 12 corvettes - but for Turkey there is the Mediterranean Sea, and there is Greece and not only.

    A new captain has been assigned to the ship. He turns to the team: - I want everyone to understand that this ship is not mine and not yours. This ship is ours. From the back rows a voice: - Let's sell it then!
