- Russia gave notice they were running a gunnery exercise in the area (Uk obviously didn’t get the memo 😉 )
- no warning shots
- should not get too carried away with the incident
Bit of flexing going on?
Nothing to see here for now – move along but keep it in mind.
Royal Navy will probably step up their patrols in the Black Sea, but Russia will not want to escalate this any more – official lines – training incident. Well, the diplomats have to earn their bread i suppose…
Remember the one big weakness for Russia is that they don’t have an easy access to a winter port. Getting an easy access winter port would be great news for Russian geo-politics.
