MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. Ukraine’s intention to create two naval bases on the Black Sea coast may have adverse effects on the climate of stability in this region, Russian presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov told the media on Tuesday.
Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said earlier in the day that his country was beginning to build two naval bases for the protection of the Black Sea region.
"It goes without saying that in view of the existing realities it may have rather negative effects in general on the climate of stability in the Black Sea region. Potentially such a risk does exist," Peskov said.
At the same time he stressed that Zelensky’s statement was still to be analyzed, because he did not explain whose bases would emerge in Ukraine. "They can be very different," he said.
"Without having more information we are unable to say anything definite," Peskov remarked. "We have no understanding what bases might be on the agenda. We will be able to analyze this when detailed information is available.
