Russia Plans on Building Black Sea Fleet to 206 Ships

Russia is expected to increase its fleet in the Black Sea to 206 ships by 2020 and is supposedly due to the increased presence of NATO in the area. Of course Putin’s grab for the Crimea probably has nothing to do with the increased NATO presence, how could it his intentions have only been peaceful, and the protection of Russian speaking people in Ukraine are within his sphere of influence:

In comments made to President Vladimir Putin as he visited the port city, Vice Admiral Alexander Vitko said a second Black Sea base was needed in addition to the main base on the Crimea peninsula annexed from Ukraine because of NATO expansion.

“Eighty ships and other vessels are expected to arrive (in Novorossiysk) before 2020. The Black Sea Fleet will have 206 ships and vessels by 2020,” Vitko told Putin.

“NATO ships are constantly present in the Black Sea and it plans to establish a naval base in the Black Sea,” he added.

NATO has regularly conducted naval exercises in the Black Sea, especially since Russia annexed Crimea, populated mainly by ethnic Russians, in March partly from fear that Ukraine’s new pro-Western authorities might try to join the Atlantic alliance.

A NATO official told Reuters in Brussels there were no alliance plans to build a Black Sea base but said it already had access to the resources of member states in the region.

“Our Black Sea allies have ports that we use from time to time but (there are) no plans to build a “Nato” base as suggested,” the official said.

Three NATO members have a Black Sea coastline – Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey.

The former Soviet republic of Georgia, on the eastern shore of the Black Sea, has sought membership in the past but like Ukraine is very unlikely to be admitted any time soon due to Moscow’s fierce opposition to NATO’s further eastern expansion.

One aspect of that is probably not lost on military planners is the increased presence of the Russian navy in the area is its close proximity to Iraq and Syria. Incidentally at the same time that western powers are increasing their presence in these same areas so it looks as if it is a buildup for defense and offensive capabilities as everyone seems to be taking a presence in the Mideast.

With Putin's aggressive stance on Ukraine and possibly other territorial acquisitions in Eastern Europe having this increased naval presence will allow him to guard his southern flank from NATO forces. From Free Beacon.
