Looks like the US is keeping a close eye on developments.  I suspect the info is being passed along to the Ukraine.

More heating up

I posted earlier on the issue in the Sea of Azov.  Now comes a report that the Russians made a massive “dry run attack” on a British Type 45 destroyer in the Black Sea.  As I said in the previous post, the west needs to make the type of response that will let the Russians know that this won’t be tolerated.  Anything less invites a shooting war later on.

Things heat up

Looks like Russia has decided to flex its muscles against someone it doesn’t think will be able to respond.  The western countries need to band together and take steps that inflict enough pain on Moscow to cause them to change their behavior.  Anything else will simply encourage Putin.

Interesting article on the problems the Russians are having with procurement of new naval landing ships. Reinforces what I have been saying about Russia being a paper tiger.

Apparently four of them had to divert to a civilian field in Russia.  Wonder why?
