The Pentagon called the ongoing Ukraine missile transparent, and the Russian claim on this score is unfounded. In particular, the “Interfax” said the representative of the Pentagon Michel Baldanza.
“We have seen reports about the missile exercises in Ukraine over international waters. In addition, we are aware of the claims of Russia in connection with these transparent exercises,” she said.
Baldanza stressed that “persistent false and misleading statements of Russia about the Ukraine continue to distract the international community from the real problem – the Russian aggression”.
A Pentagon spokesman said that the US will recognize Crimea as part of Ukraine, condemn the annexation and calling “for an immediate end to the Russian occupation”.
We will remind, today in the South of Ukraine launched a missile firing, the response from Russia yet.
Earlier, Russia threatened missile strike in the case of the Ukraine military exercises near the Crimea. The warning contained in the letter of the Ministry of defense of Russia, addressed to the military attaché at the Embassy of Ukraine in the Russian Federation.
In response, the NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said that the sovereign airspace of the Russian Federation in the Black sea ends up in the middle of the Kerch Strait, and there is Ukraine to carry out missile tests is not going to.
