A Russian naval official reported an increase in NATO warships near the Georgian coast on Wednesday.
“According to our information, NATO ships are in the Black Sea and their numbers are increasing,” said Vice Adm. Sergei Menyailo, commander of the Novorossiisk naval base.
Russia is concerned that NATO is continuing to build up its forces in the Black Sea. The military alliance announced its decision to deliver humanitarian aid to Georgia after the conclusion of hostilities between Tbilisi and Moscow over breakaway South Ossetia on August 12.
One has to wonder: is this truly about "delivering humanitarian aid", or stoking a confrontation?
If this is truly about delivering aid, why all the military hardware??
