Ukraine is a very important partner for NATO because it contributes greatly both to the operational component of the Alliance and the development of effectiveness of the NATO Response Force (NRF) and other important units.

“Ukraine is a very important partner for us because you make a huge contribution not only to the operational component of the Alliance, but also help us develop the effectiveness of the NATO Response Force and other important units. The world situation is such that in the event of a crisis in any part of the globe, the use of military force may be required,” Commander Surface Forces NATO, Commodore Jeanette Morang said on the air of the DIM TV channel.

By conducting joint exercises with Ukraine, NATO is increasing the interaction between the armed forces and undergoing training for possible military operations in the Black Sea region. Therefore, in the event of an acute situation, the integration of military forces will require much less effort and time.

“The role of NATO and its individual members is to help improve the quality of military command. For this, we conduct exercises and provide military education to Ukrainian servicemen. These exercises in the Black Sea perfectly help us achieve these goals,” Commodore Morang summed up.

As Ukrinform reported, navy sailors from eight countries, with the participation of NATO, took part in the international Sea Breeze-2020 exercises in the Black Sea. About 2,000 military, 26 ships, 19 aircraft were involved in the exercises.

  • They had better do something sensible, like prepare for a sizeable permanent Nato presence in the Black Sea. A process they should have started in 2008.

    • NATO have moved their European HQ from Germany to Belgium. Not the smartest move, Belgium is crawling with Russian trash. Poland would have been a better choice, or the UK.

    • I still think an important first step would be for the Black Sea countries to scrap the 1936 Montreaux doctrine which has governed the region far too long and now that the CCCP crimbled it is even more necessary now. Then NATO could build a real base that would allow large American ships.

      • It would be foolish to put large naval assets in the Black Sea. The waters are much too confined and can be easily controlled by aircraft from any of the Russian bases along the littoral. Same with aircraft out of Romania, or Turkey.

    He forgot to mention, that Ukraine is the only friendly country with experience in fighting mafia land and its stooges. Surely, this is not to be underestimated.
