NATO promises Ukraine unconditional support in the crisis in the Kerch Strait
 Monday, November 26, 2018 10:00:39 AM
NATO issued a statement giving unconditional support to Ukraine in the deteriorating situation in the Azov Sea and Russian actions in the Kerch Strait, said NATO spokesperson Oana Lungescu in a commentary for Evropeyska Pravda.

Lungescu stressed that NATO is closely monitoring developments in the Azov Sea and the Kerch Strait. ?We are in contact with the Ukrainian authorities. We call for restraint and de-escalation.?

"NATO fully supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including its navigational rights in its territorial waters. We call on Russia to ensure unhindered access to Ukrainian ports in the Azov Sea, in accordance with international law,? the Alliance press secretary stated.

She recalled that at the Brussels Summit in July, NATO leaders expressed their support for Ukraine and made clear that Russia's ongoing militarization of the Crimea, the Black Sea and the Azov Sea poses further threats to Ukraine's independence and undermines the stability of the broader region.

The European Union called for Russia to restore freedom of movement and not to aggravate the situation in the Azov Sea. According to the recent information, six Ukrainian servicemen were injured as the result of the Russians? aggression in the Black Sea.

The public relations center of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation stated that three Ukrainian Navy ships coming from the port of Berdyansk in the Azov Sea and heading for the Kerch Strait reversed course.

Earlier, the press-center of the Ukrainian Naval Forces Command stated that the Berdyansk and Nikopol, small, armored artillery boats were hit by enemy fire and lost their way and subsequently seized by Russia.

This bs could be easily stopped --just send the US destroyer that is/was in the Black Sea to the Azov Sea -see how smart the Kremlin-based midget isn't then !

That would put the Kremlin-based midget on the spot, but if Russia attacked the ship, well it would mean the Kremlin-based midget gets to decide whether there would be war.  Maybe NATO and President Trump don't want to risk that.  the Kremlin-based midget is risk averse, but NATO members would rather kick the can down the road, because it is less costly in the short term.

Fraucha:
I think, and this is only my opinion, that the USA (only because it can), destroy the entire Russian navy in the Black and Azov Seas. They can do it with anything stationed in the Med, they would not even have to enter the area. Just wipe it off the face of the earth, and while they are at it...destroy the first km of the bridge on the RUSSIAN side.

I am tired of Russia.

Doing nothing should not be an option !

Sending a real token is a major statement in itself--it dares the Kremlin-based midget to take on the west  .
The carrier group n the Med is virtually in place and ready to go.

The real bottomline -- a real confrontation will see the Kremlin-based midget back down -eventually -- so allow Russia to dictate ANYTHING here would be another HUGE mistake.

I would target the Russian ships involved in the Sunday aggression -- sink them  -that might get it through the Kremlin-based midget's skull that the world has had enough !
