Russia has warned the United States on Tuesday against sending warships to the Black Sea, as ships are headed there now. The US should stay away for their “own good,” said Moscow, as the situation along Ukraine’s border has caused increasing concern in the West.
According to a report by CBS News, the U.S. Secretary of State, while meeting with Ukrainian and NATO officials in Brussels, made it clear that the Biden administration, along with its allies in Europe, has Ukraine’s back and considers Russia’s ongoing military buildup in the region “very provocative.” On the other hand, Russian Deputy Foreign Ministry Sergei Ryabkov was cited by Russian news agencies as saying the US is helping ramp up the aggression and inch the world toward war.
“There is absolutely nothing for American ships to be doing near our shores,” Ryabkov said, warning there was a very high risk of unspecified incidents if U.S. military hardware were to be positioned in the Black Sea. “We warn the United States that it will be better for them to stay far away from Crimea and our Black Sea coast,” Ryabkov was quoted as saying. “It will be for their own good.”
The Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Friday that Washington had informed Ankara that two U.S. warships would pass through Turkish waters this week to be deployed in the Black Sea. The deployment would come amid a significant escalation of the conflict in eastern Ukraine between Russian-backed separatists and Ukraine’s forces, which have U.S. and European support.
Hostilities first flared in 2014 when Russia unilaterally annexed Crimea — a peninsula that sticks out into the Black Sea and is home to a Russian navy base — away from Ukraine, drawing condemnation from the Western world and a series of sanctions. –CBS News
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby declined during a regular press briefing on Friday to confirm the Turkish government’s statement that U.S. warships were being sent to the Black Sea. He noted that the U.S. “routinely” operates in the Black Sea, but said he wouldn’t “speak to operations.”
The march toward war is ongoing as rhetoric ramps up and more warships and military are sent to the area. Be ready for anything. Hopefully this is nothing more than the rhetoric of a few ruling classes, but we know they aren’t the ones that will be going into battle if this explodes.
U.S military takes injection, injection kills military, China-Russia walk right in. Get ready to have rice and borscht shoved up your arse and down your throat daily.
The war in Ukraine is another Western proxy war with Russia. Since the color revolution and DC fomented coup in 2014, the British have been training the Ukrainian forces and contractors via Operation ORBITAL. DC has recently sent millions of dollars of weapons of war to be used by Kiev and the DC proxies. Zelensky has asked to be admitted into NATO as soon as possible. Doubt that happens anytime soon.
This conflict will end up destroying and de-stabilizing the whole area…just as the West wants. There will be no direct conflict between the US and Russia. All conflicts are now undertaken with contractors and proxies by the CIA. A never ending stream of weapons of war and financing is needed for all these operations. Both the US Sec of State and the US Sec of War have formerly worked for military contractors. See how that goes? Both Raytheon and Lockheed Martin’s CEOs are rubbing their hands with glee at all the profit they stand to make.
Another area to watch is Afghanistan. Joe has decided to bring troops home. Good…if that ever happens. However, CIA contractors and proxies outnumber US troops by many multiples. These guys aren’t leaving. The CIA plans for Turkey (a NATO ally) to occupy a base and bring in their trained Chinese Uyghur proxies. They will take on the job of infiltrating China via the Afghan/China border into Xinjiang. This will destabilize China and cut off their BRI plans that include routes through Afghanistan via the old Silk Road trail, and also to the seaport they have contracted with Pakistan to build. The US will never give up control of this area and let China build trade routes to detour around the US controlled Straits of Malacca. This is also what the CIA color revolution is about in Myanmar. China wants to build a seaport in Myanmar to detour around the Straits of Malacca. The US will not allow it. They want to control the world by force rather than trade.
Whenever you hear DC crying about “democratic uprisings” or “humanitarian crimes” in other areas, you can bet they have an agenda in those same areas. The DC corporation does not care about the welfare of anyone but themselves and padding their pocketbooks.
Russia’s bluffing with us. It, and China as well, are terrified of the US now that Biden is in charge and won’t put up with any of their bullshit.
I did not Know Russia owed the Black Sea?
There is the Montreux Treaty which explains a lot about the background why Russia is warning the hegemonic Marxist.
The Black Sea ultimately drains into the Mediterranean Sea, via the Turkish Straits.
