    US Upgrades Ukrainian Ports To Fit American Warships

    US Upgrades Ukrainian Ports To Fit American Warships

    AW1Ed | July 6, 2019



    USS Carney, DDG 64, prepares to go underway in Odesa, Ukraine.


    Our own Poetrooper sent us an interesting link: seems the US is modifying Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea to better fit US and NATO ships. That these ports are near Russian controlled Crimea is sure to rankle the Russians, who deem the Black Sea as their pond. Russia did fire on and take three Ukrainian Navy vessels last fall, and has staged a warship in Havana’s harbor.

    Russian Pond? The US is building up Ukraine’s bases at Ochakiv and Mykolaiv (marked) on the Black Sea coast, west of Russian-occupied Crimea.


    If Trump is soft on Russia, what with all that collusion and election meddling, it sure isn’t showing here. The rest of the article may be viewed here: Breaking Defense

    I was wondering if anyone was going to catch that fact, and respond.

    On this board of “awake” conservatives, they still don’t see they are controlled by propaganda media.

    In every conflict, part of the plan is to keep the people thinking that our aggression is justified. This really bothered me in Desert Storm. We were right to get Iraq out of Kuwait, but wrong to kill so many Iraqis.
    One of the things that Trump is doing right is his resolve to keep us out of war with Iran, NORK, Russia, and anyone else who is willing to negotiate.
