It’s time to build up its forces in the black sea region to have more opportunities to ensure freedom of navigation, because Russia is trying to create a new “iron curtain”
Ukraine and NATO should join forces and create a security zone with the introduction of the marine and terrestrial systems, to aggressive Russian fleet blocked Odessa, said former commander of US ground forces in Europe Ben Hodges in an interview Today.
According to him, Russia is trying to create a new “iron curtain”, which takes place on the Black sea, with Romania, Turkey and Bulgaria on one side and Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine on the other. All this is done with only one purpose — to use force against countries that are not members of NATO
He argues that NATO should build up its forces in the black sea region to have more opportunities to ensure freedom of navigation, protection of NATO, and also in order to deter Russia from aggressive action against our partners.
“So I am concerned that they are trying to do around Odessa. After all, what Russia is doing in Crimea could spread to Odessa”, – noted the Hodges.
The General said that when the allied forces announce locations for exercises in the Black sea, Russia simply closes the passages to these places. Hodges is convinced that it is a form of temporary blockade of Odessa, and that’s no coincidence. That is why, according to him, Romania and other sojuzniki NATO so concerned.
“Ukraine should think about unmanned systems. As drones, only in water. There are both surface and underwater drones that will help with exploration, and will be able to track submarines and ships. There are many things that you can do, and they’ll be very expensive. This is especially true of sharing intelligence with Romania, Georgia and USA,” concluded Hodges.
