In Ukraine, note the atypical activity of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation

The Ukrainian authorities note the atypical activity of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation. According to the head of the joint press center of the operational command "South" Natalya Gumenyuk, there are now two dozen Russian ships in the water area.

Now there are 20 ships in the Black Sea, including 4 rocket carriers - one of them is underwater - 28 missiles, the maximum, if we say, can be equipped to launch

– said Natalia Gumenyuk.

In addition, as the official noted, there are a large number of auxiliary vessels in the sea.

The Ukrainian military notes another feature of the presence of Russian ships in the Black Sea. Namely, their concentration. This, according to Ms. Gumenyuk, may indicate that the Russians want to find the wreckage of the downed American drone, as they said earlier.

Recall that on March 14, an American reconnaissance drone MQ-9 Reaper fell in the Black Sea near the Russian border. The Pentagon said that this happened as a result of the unprofessional actions of the Su-27 pilot, who was raised to intercept an air target.

The Russian Defense Ministry, on the contrary, noted the professional and correct actions of the pilot, while emphasizing that the pilot did not come into contact with the drone and did not use airborne weapons against it.

Later, information appeared that the UAV lost control and fell into the sea due to the dumping of fuel from a Russian fighter on it.

    The exit of the fleet and dispersal means only about maneuvering against possible attacks by unmanned submarines, which are more vulnerable at the bases. It looks like intelligence has been received, here are the countermeasures. And the "Reapers" are a clear spotter of blows. The British have always been the first to destroy the enemy fleet, and today the British are the main acting enemies of Russia ..
