According to naval experts, this coincidence of visits to the Black Sea of a large number of warships of the NATO countries is not random and aims to demonstrate military support of NATO to Ukraine in connection with the annexation of the Crimean peninsula as a result of Russian aggression and the continuing battles with participation of the Russian mercenaries in the Donbas.

The formal reason for this was the international naval exercise Breeze 2014 in the western part of the Black Sea from July 4 to 13.

The warships of Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, Turkey and the United States as well as the U.S. patrol aircraft will be involved in the exercise.
