State Duma Deputy Ruslan Balbek called the concern of the North Atlantic Alliance about Russia’s plans to restrict access to Azov and the Black Sea as arrogance.
“Let them scatter in appeals in front of another audience, we ourselves will decide who to let through our strait. Maybe they still have to free our airfields near Moscow for convenience? The impudence of these gentlemen has lost reasonable boundaries: either give them Crimea or liberate the strait, ”the parliamentarian noted.
According to him, NATO will manage without the Sea of Azov, he added that the alliance can “enter other ports, but there is nothing to open mouth to straits of others.”
Earlier it was reported that NATO is concerned about the plans of the Russian Federation to restrict access to a number of zones in the Black Sea, they called for free access to Ukrainian ports on the Sea of Azov. The alliance also noted that it is necessary to ensure freedom of navigation.
