Russia responded threateningly to NATO provocation in the Black Sea

The Russian military responded to NATO's provocative actions in the Black Sea.

Against the background of the statement by NATO head Jens Stoltenberg that the Russian side allegedly violates the sovereignty of Ukraine and Georgia, against which the North Atlantic Alliance will increase pressure on Russia in the Black Sea, the Russian side unexpectedly began large-scale military exercises in the waters of the Black Sea, sending it to perform combat missions the entire Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy.

“In response to the harsh critical statement of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg against Moscow, which was voiced on December 2, 2020 at a meeting with the foreign ministers of Ukraine and Georgia, Russia put two of its fleets out to sea at once, writes the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo. The Russians considered the words of the head of the Alliance to be frankly provocative and reacted with large-scale exercises of the Black Sea and Baltic fleets. Moreover, dozens of ships entered the sea at the same time, which began to work out a variety of tasks. Stoltenberg said that Moscow "violates the sovereignty and territorial integrity" of Ukraine and Georgia by increasing its military presence in Crimea and the Black Sea. At the same time, he noted that "NATO is strengthening its positions in the Black Sea," confirming the presence there of ships and aircraft of the United States and other non-Black Sea countries. The reaction of the RF Ministry of Defense was immediate ", - about it сообщает Russian information publication "Reporter".

It is known that just a few hours before the large-scale Russian military exercises in the waters of the Black Sea, the American missile destroyer that had come here earlier, decided to urgently go to the Mediterranean, obviously realizing that such provocations against Russia could end in very unpleasant surprises. especially taking into account the fact that the American destroyer "Donald Cook" is very fond of being exposed to powerful means of electronic suppression, and bombers are actively using its deck as a target when practicing strikes.
