Moscow, April 9. Military expert Yury Knutov spoke about the precautionary measures taken in Russia to protect Crimea from the ships of the North Atlantic Alliance. The specialist pointed out that the military bloc continues to expand its activities in the Black Sea region.
Knutov recalled that the Kiev authorities tried to attract foreign warships for provocations in the Strait of Kerch.
He expressed his confidence that the Russian Federation will "resort to Soviet tactics" when NATO and Kiev provoke off the Russian coasts, PolitNavigator reports.
According to Knutov, Americans are increasingly attracted by the missions in the Black Sea ships of Spain, Canada and the Netherlands. Most likely the military expert has suggested that it is they who are involved in provocations in Kerch.
"It will pass the Su-27 next to such a spy plane and its satellite stream will dump it into a downward spiral. After the plane starts a spin, the pilot will, I am sure, simply return to the base and stop his reconnaissance flight", he explained.
According to him, electronic war systems have been established in the Crimea, which will help expel foreign warships from the bloc coast.
Recall, on November 25 last year, three ships of the Navy of Ukraine invaded the territorial waters of the Russian Federation, violating Russia's state border, dangerously maneuvered, did not respond to the legitimate demands of the Russian border guards to stop. As a result, all boats were detained, and Ukrainian sailors were arrested. Moscow called the incident an obvious provocation.
