The Russian Embassy in the United States said that the scale of the Ukrainian-American Sea Breeze exercises in the Black Sea increases the risks of unintentional incidents, so Moscow calls on Washington and its allies to abandon the maneuvers.
Let us recall that from June 28 to July 10, exercises will be held in the Black Sea, in which 5 thousand servicemen and 32 ships from 32 countries will be involved. Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said that under the guise of these exercises, NATO could supply Ukraine with modern weapons, which could later be transferred to battalions in Donbass.
“The aggressive nature and scale of the Sea Breeze exercises completely does not correspond to the real security tasks in the Black Sea. We call on the United States and its allies to stop practicing military operations, ”the embassy’s social media page noted.
The embassy noted that Sea Breeze “encourages militarism in Kiev” and “increases the risk of unintentional incidents.”
