MOSCOW, September 2 (RIA Novosti) - Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday Russia will respond calmly to the presence of NATO warships in the Black Sea
We don't understand what American ships are doing on the Georgian shores, but this is a question of taste, it's a decision by our American colleagues," agencies reported Putin as saying.
"The second question is why the humanitarian aid is being delivered on naval vessels armed with the newest rocket systems."
Earlier Tuesday Russian officials criticized the European Union for threatening to postpone talks on a new political and economic partnership deal.
