Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said that Russia will not be able to take possession of the Black Sea, it can only become the Bermuda Triangle for the neighbor country. This is reported by Ukrinform.
“The Black Sea should not become a Russian puddle. We need to build a powerful military infrastructure, military bases along the Black and Azov Seas,” said Klimkin.
According to him, the Black Sea will never belong to the Russian regime. In fact, it will become the Bermuda Triangle, and the Kerch Strait will be unlocked.
“Russia forbids us the freedom of navigation in the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov. It attacks our ships, captures sailors. Therefore, everything we do and must do should be focusing on the release of our prisoners-of-war and other political prisoners and hostages,” said Klimkin.
Earlier the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed the necessity of increasing the presence of the NATO military ships in the Black Sea due to the Russian aggression. The press service of the Head of State reports this.
According to Poroshenko, the Russian Federation uses Crimea for deploying missiles there, what creates an extremely dangerous situation and destabilizes the region.
"We must increase the presence of NATO ships in the Black Sea," the president said. At the same time, he noted that "after the illegal annexation of Crimea, the balance of strength in the Black Sea was completely destroyed."
The President does not rule out the opportunity of further aggression by the Russian forces in the Black Sea.
"That is why the presence of NATO ships will be a factor of stabilization," the Head of State said.
