The Russian Defense Ministry believes that NATO under the cover of the Sea Breeze exercises will deliver weapons to Ukraine, which will be transferred to the national battalions in the Donbass. This was stated by the official representative of the department, Major General Igor Konashenkov.
According to him, the borders of the alliance’s military activity go far beyond the Ukrainian section of the Black Sea.
According to the general, in Ukraine, the interaction of special forces, as well as parachuting, including at night, will be worked out.
Konashenkov stressed that under the cover of the exercises, it is planned to deliver modern weapons, ammunition and material property to the Ukrainian troops for further shipment to the Donbass.
The general added that the Russian Defense Ministry intends to monitor the process of preparing and conducting these exercises and, if necessary, respond to the current situation in order to ensure the military security of the Russian Federation.
Earlier, the head of the Russian Defense Ministry, Sergei Shoigu, said that the department plans to form about 20 new formations and military units in the Western Military District (ZVO) in response to the actions of NATO countries.
