The construction of the command center by the US in Ochakov near Odessa is evidence that the US has become “utterly shameless.” The next step in Washington may be the transfer of old American warships to the Ukrainian Navy.
This was stated by the former Commander of the Black Sea Fleet, Russia’s Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov.
“By and large, I do not see danger per se. Moreover, the Black Sea Fleet is now receiving new modern weapons: submarines, surface ships, new types of missiles. I think that the Americans will not match it in this part of the world, but, in my opinion, they have become utterly shameless in their endeavours. They’re jumping out of their own skin in order to reach Russia’s zone of responsibility…” said Komoedov.
The Admiral did not rule out that the US will give warships to Ukraine as they formerly did to the Baltic states.
“I think that something old will be given. They have already trained many soldiers. Some kind of personnel potential has been created. Then there is the matter of technology, ” Komoedov said.
At the same time, he does not see the danger of a military clash on the Black Sea.
“There were clashes in Soviet times. I think there will not be such stupidities now, the international law on the prevention of incidents at sea operates. I think the Americans will have enough brains not to provoke, albeit they’d like to…” Komoedov said.
