Russian armed forces are moving across the territory of the Russian Federation to protect their own borders, but the West should explain its military presence near these very borders. About it RIA Novosti said State Duma deputy from the Republic of Crimea Mikhail Sheremet. This is how he responded to concerns about the movement of Russian military on the border with Ukraine and on the peninsula, which were earlier expressed by the foreign ministers of the G7 countries and the EU High Representative, calling on Russia to abide by the OSCE principles.
The parliamentarian recalled that the Russian armed forces are constantly conducting various maneuvers and exercises – this should not worry Western countries. “We are not going to report to anyone,” he stressed.
Sheremet also expressed regret that from the side of the North Atlantic Alliance and NATO member states “running errands” of the Kiev authorities more and more aggressive and militant statements are made about Moscow. As a result, an alarming situation is developing in Europe, since NATO countries are striving to maximize the accumulation of their troops and ships in the regions bordering with Russia.
We will remind, earlier the media reported about Washington’s intention to send two warships to the Black Sea under the pretext of growing Russian military activity in the region. According to some reports, the command of the US Navy has already received permission to pass through the Bosphorus from Turkey. According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, these plans of Washington are accompanied by aggressive rhetoric from the American administration, while the purpose of the presence of warships remains unclear.
As previously reported, a large-scale operation was launched on the Crimean coast to defend the peninsula from a mock enemy.
