BEIJING, (BM) – Russia unexpectedly reacted to the aggravation of the situation in the Persian Gulf, where the American fleet puts pressure on Iran. To such conclusions experts from China came, learned BulgarianMilitary.com citing Politros.
Some time ago it became known that in the Persian Gulf there was almost a clash between the US and Iranian naval forces, whose combat units nearly ran into each other in the open sea. Following the incident, the parties exchanged lunges, accusing the opponent of dangerous maneuvering.
Experts noted that the situation in the region has escalated to the limit, this is due to the sending of a large number of American ships to the Persian Gulf, which is a dangerous provocation. It is reported by Sohu. PolitRussia is a translation of this article.
“Against the backdrop of these events, Russia, with a difference of several days, conducted training maneuvers in three directions at once. The forces of the Black Sea, Baltic and Pacific fleets were involved in the exercises,” said Chinese experts.
Analysts are convinced that the activity of the Russian fleet is associated with events taking place in the Persian Gulf. Thus, Moscow warns the US against rash steps in relation to Iran. This signal indicates that the conflict in this region could turn into something more than another local confrontation.
“The United States deployed a powerful grouping of its ships in the Persian Gulf, including the Eisenhower aircraft carrier <…> It can be stated that Iran was in an extremely difficult situation,” experts added.
Hardly anyone could have expected Russia to react so quickly and harshly to this situation, the simultaneous exercises in the Black, Baltic and Japanese Seas are an extremely decisive step. Even though the Russian Navy is significantly inferior to the Americans in the number of surface ships, it still poses an extremely great danger to competitors.
This mobilization caused great concern among the US military. The reason Russia acted so harshly is because it recognizes Iran’s sovereignty and also considers the US’s attempts to intervene in the internal affairs of this state unreasonable.
Earlier, PolitRussia quoted foreign experts who commented on the campaign in the Black Sea of the US destroyer Donald Cook, which would turn out for the US military fiasco.
