Talk of a possible military US response to Russia’s actions in the Kerch Strait at the moment is not conducted. This was stated by the Chairman of the joint chiefs of staff of the Armed forces of the United States General Joseph Dunford at a conference organized by The Washington Post.
“There was a military response, there was no discussion of a military response in the sea of Azov,” said Dunford.
According to him, the US relationship with Ukraine is based primarily on assistance in reforming the armed forces and ensuring defence of the country. However, Dunford said that his work lies in the fact that the American leader Donald trump “were the possible options of reciprocal action with the use of the armed forces.”
November 25, the border service of FSB of Russia have detained three Ukrainian warships, which without warning had violated the sea border and was performing dangerous maneuvers in Russian waters. 24 sailors were sent into custody. In response, Ukraine imposed martial law, and the President of the United States Donald trump has canceled a meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin at the summit of “Big twenty”.
