“When a ship of a non-regional power enters the Black Sea, when we find that it carries high-precision long-range weapons […], that is to say, that he is not going on a tourist trip, of course we watch over him, we accompany him and we understand that any provocation is possible at any time, as happened not long ago with a British ship, and of course we must not allow that “, he declared. .
In addition, he noted that it is “an almost constant attempt” to check to what extent the country is “prepared” and has “the entire system aligned along the Black Sea coast”, generally on the southern border.
According to the senior official, the United States is not the only country that carries out this type of controls and campaigns. “I understand that next, they are going to carry out exercises, exercises with our neighbors, exercises with the Georgian fleet and exercises with the Ukrainian fleet. Well, we are also carrying out exercises and we will continue to do so,” he added.
