US and Its Allies Turning Black Sea Into Confrontation Zone, Moscow Says

Earlier in the day, the Italian Defence Ministry confirmed its Virginio Fasan CGN frigate was participating in Sea Breeze drills, which are taking place in the Black Sea. The ministry added the vessel participated in the exercises as part of routine activity. Russian warships were tracking the vessel when it entered the sea.

The Russian Foreign Ministry stated on 1 July that the US and NATO countries are turning the Black Sea into a confrontation zone, adding that the recent movement by the Dutch navy frigate Evertsen in this area was a dangerous provocation.

"The Black Sea area is consistently being turned by Washington and its allies from the area of cooperation that had been established there, into a zone of military confrontation. This is done deliberately so that another region of the world under the lead of the United States would become unstable," the Russian Foreign Ministry press secretary, Maria Zakharova, said at a briefing on 1 July.
