Either or I am surprised, and somewhat impressed, that Washington actually took the step of trying to limit Ukraines exposure in this incident.
This exercise is not new thoughm, as it has been taking place for the last 13 years. Also, cotrary to the comment in the article about the Black Sea
being Russian territory, that would be incorrect.
Washington would probably react likewise to a Russian warship entering U.S. territory, Salvia said.
I think that view point is another part of the issue, which is Russia viewing territory that it once controlled as still controlling it. Also, the
Russians have brought their forces into our back yard when they held joint war games with Venezuela. We observed and nothing more.
1 vessel is not going to win any war, and its in a location Russia can easily track it.
Not sure why they have their feathers ruiffeled over this.
