MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry views Washington’s and Kiev’s plans to conduct exercises in the Black Sea as a dangerous idea, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told reporters on Tuesday.

"That’s a dangerous idea, and that’s the way we will view it. Prior to that, we will study the facts. They are viewed by us as a dangerous idea," he said.

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry earlier announced plans to begin preparations for the joint Ukrainian-US exercises Sea Breeze-2019 scheduled to be held in the northwestern part of the Black Sea.

In 2018, the Sea Breeze exercises were held near Ukraine’s Odessa and Nikolayev Regions and in the northwestern part of the Black Sea. More than 2,000 military servicemen, about 30 warships and a number of aircraft from 19 countries took part in them.
