‘Hollywood Fantasy’: Vice Admiral Calms Discussions On Possible US-Russia Naval Conflict

The US should not abuse exercises near Russia’s borders, as Washington underestimates the risks of such maneuvers, writes Lyle Goldstein, a professor at the US Naval College’s China Marine Research Institute.

In an article written for National Interest magazine , the professor points out that there are still at least 18,000 mines in the Russian waters of the Azov Sea, as well as along the Black Sea coast, left after World War II.

Reason for war?
An accidental explosion of a NATO ship in one of these mines could lead to a naval conflict with Russia, which could turn into a total defeat for Atlantic Alliance forces, Goldstein believes.
