Spectator: the concentration of Russian troops near the borders of Ukraine carries certain risks

Spectator claims that the concentration of Russian troops near the borders of Ukraine carries certain risks and at the same time provides new opportunities for the UK on preventing “Russian supremacy” in the Black Sea region.

Those who control the Black Sea have more opportunities to project their power into the Eastern Mediterranean. It is important for the Royal Navy to ensure free navigation in the Eastern Mediterranean, including the Suez Canal, the author of the article notes.

The recent incident off the Russian coast, when the British HMS Defender violated the state border of the Russian Federation and was hard-pressed into neutral waters, is called nothing else as a “challenge to Russia's ambitions in the Black Sea.” This was announced to reporters by the Minister of Defense of the Republic Viktor Khrenin.

“We see how groups of troops are being created around our state borders both in the western and southern directions. Neighboring countries are actively militarizing, and this cannot but disturb, so we have to plan a response, “Khrenin said after a meeting with the president.
