However, Moscow’s delegation warned that the move was a worrying escalation in the direction of a battle between Russia and the West. “It looks like the US 6th fleet can’t wait to find an enemy in the Black Sea,” officers mentioned in an announcement on Thursday. “It is desperately looking for a pretext – now openly under the banner of warfare exercises – for ramping up presence in the region.”

According to the Ministry of Defense in Moscow, a Russian vessel threatened “the potential of resorting to ramming to force the trespasser out of the territory.”

The US Navy claimed in an announcement on the time that the vessel’s so-called “freedom of navigation operation upheld the rights, freedoms, and lawful uses of the sea recognized in international law by challenging Russia’s excessive maritime claims.”
