The West is sending its warships to the Black Sea to whip up tensions in the region and generally in relations with Moscow. The corresponding opinion in an interview with RIA Novosti was expressed by a source familiar with the situation in the Russian Foreign Ministry.
“Everything is done with one goal – to increase pressure on our country so that we, in their hope, apparently“ understand ”something and behave as they expect of us, in some ways show more compliance”, – says the interlocutor of the agency.
Tension is now observed not only in the Black Sea, said the representative of the diplomatic service, expressing the hope that Western partners will comply with the Montreux Convention, which allows merchant ships of all countries to freely pass through the straits both in peacetime and in wartime.
As it became known earlier, two ships of the British Navy will be sent to the Black Sea in May. The United Kingdom thus wants to support Ukraine and the North Atlantic Alliance against the backdrop of the situation on the Russian-Ukrainian border.
