SEVASTOPOL, March 03, /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Black Sea Fleet denied Ukrainian media reports alleging that it had issued an ultimatum to Ukrainian Navy Commander, Vice Admiral Alexander Vitko and was making plans to storm Ukrainian military units.
“We are already used to a situation where Ukrainian mass media accuse us every day of some forcible actions against our Ukrainian colleagues,” a spokesperson for the Russian Black Sea Fleet said.
“The purpose of these reports is not new. It’s clear who stands behind this. These puppeteers cannot think up anything new after Yugoslavia, Iraq and Syria. But they won’t succeed in getting us fight each other,” he said.
