The head of Committee of the Federation Council international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev said that the US military presence will only increase tensions in the black sea region.
About it reports TASS.
He also suggested that the US notified Turkey about plans to send American ships in the Black sea, since in accordance with the Montreux Convention of 1936 Necronomicon States are obliged to report on such plans within 15 days.
Kosachev said that if order was maintained, there is no formal obstacle to the entry of American ships in the Black sea, where they can be 21 days.
However, the official said that American warships have nothing to do in the Black sea.
“The American military presence can only increase tensions in the region, even given the fact that it is only symbolic: once again to show the flag in the region for tens of thousands of kilometers from the American continent, confirm that America is on the side of Ukraine in the current situation,” – said Kosachev.
He also believes that the increased US military presence in the region is related “to the planned offensive of the Ukrainian Armed forces in Donbass”, about the talk in the Kremlin.
In his opinion, the US needs to “cover up and cover another provocation by Kiev.”
