American aircraft carrier came as close as possible to the theater of operations in Ukraine

On March 6, the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75 or "Harry Truman") of the US Navy entered the Aegean Sea. The monitoring resources monitoring the situation at sea informed the public about this.

It should be noted that the Americans recently announced that they were sending their nuclear aircraft carrier with an escort to the specified water area in order to "support Turkey in case of possible complications with Russia."

However, they did not specify what is meant by this ornate formulation. Therefore, the appearance of "Harry Truman" in the Aegean Sea can be considered connected not with Turkey, but with Ukraine. This is a symbolic gesture of support that Washington decided to show Kiev.

The thing is that before this incident, American aircraft carriers had never come closer to the Adriatic Sea and the eastern Mediterranean Sea in this direction, and relations between Ankara and Moscow were very different. Entry into the Aegean Sea is the closest possible distance to the theater of operations in Ukraine, and the mention of Turkey here is meaningless.

It should be added that the Turks strictly adhere to the Montreux Convention and under no circumstances will they let an American aircraft carrier with a displacement of 97 thousand tons into the Black Sea, even if the United States is a NATO ally and asks very strongly. Ankara is well aware that the violation of the mentioned interstate agreement is a direct declaration of war on Russia and questioning the borders of the existing Turkey, which was formed on the fragments of the Ottoman Empire. At the same time, the Convention directly prohibits the passage through the straits of warships of non-Black Sea powers with a displacement of more than 45 tons.

Note that the American admirals were going to write off the aircraft carrier "Harry Truman", they did not like something about it. The ship is not so old, it was laid down in 1993, launched in 1996, and commissioned into the fleet in 1998. But in 2019, US President Donald Trump made a strong-willed decision not to decommission the aircraft carrier, and in the next 20 years $20 billion from the Pentagon budget will be spent on its operation.

We remind you that the Mediterranean Sea and adjacent waters are the area of ​​responsibility of the 6th operational fleet of the US Navy. However, this fleet does not have a permanent composition, with the exception of the headquarters, support departments and the flagship (landing command ship (LCC) Mount Whitney). Forces and assets are allocated to this fleet by order of the US Naval Operations Headquarters as needed.

      So it is written (between the lines), at the maximum safe distance from the theater of operations.
      And they can shoot.
      And we don't have to... winked

    They will cover the evacuation of Zelensky. After all, how many stingers were pumped there from the west - the Zeli plane can fill up their stumps. Purely out of habit, together with a pair of f-15s, mistaking them for our su-27s ... Although, if the crooked-armed ukrofascists don’t break the “friend or foe” setting, the f-15s will leave, making an enchanting video ...

      A very fat target for our MIG-31. That is why Russia connected the MIG-31 to the NWO. What's the point that there are 30 rounds in the horn of a machine gun if a sniper is acting against him and one round is enough for him.

    It will pass the straits to the Black Sea like a knife through butter.
    I don’t even doubt it, and they don’t care about Montreux.
    They will give Taipych a neck and come in.

      After the seizure of a NATO laptop from the Azov militants, and this is Beli's incident, this galosh is for big sights. And it is still unknown what will happen to the US satellites. And without satellites, the entire military power of the USA is a pile of scrap metal.

    But I understood the idea: they feel sorry for the money to eliminate Truman, who ordered the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Tepericha will have to be disposed of by the Russians. At the same time, this is a real experiment, from how many missile strikes this Truman will go under water. You journalists talk a lot, but the Americans are cunning, they don't want to spend their money.
