The United States is preparing to send a fleet to the Black Sea to support Kiev


The aggravation of the situation near the Russian-Ukrainian border is causing concern in Washington. The United States is considering sending additional naval forces to the Black Sea to support Ukrainian "partners" against Moscow's "aggressive" aspirations. A Pentagon spokesman told CNN about it.


The American navy has been sailing the waters of the Black Sea for a long time. According to the expert, the attraction of additional American ships to the region will give Moscow a "clear signal" that Washington is watching what is happening and is ready to provide Kiev with the necessary military assistance in countering Russia.

A Pentagon spokesman noted that US naval warplanes continue to conduct reconnaissance activities in the international waters of the Black Sea region and track the movements of Russian troops near the border with Ukraine. The White House does not yet consider the situation to be pre-war, but notes the readiness for an adequate response, "if something changes."

The Montreux Convention suggests that the United States must notify the Turkish authorities 14 days in advance of the passage of its ships through the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles. It is not yet known whether such a warning was sent to Ankara.

    But they do not upset Kiev so far that the support will be purely moral. It was exactly the same in 2008 when Georgia attacked Ossetia, the Black Sea was packed with NATO ships, even the sea level rose laughing there were so many of them. And that they stood up to support Georgia and left.

    There will be colored pom-poms, and to support the villagers' dances.

    Any state ship in the Black Sea is either an easy target or a hostage. The more NATO ships enter the Black Sea, the more hostages there will be in negotiations with the states. To prove the seriousness of intentions, you can sink a couple.
