NATO Launches New Black Sea Force to Target Russia

The Resolution on Stability and Security in the Black Sea Region, presented by the Committee on the Civil Dimension of Security and adopted by the Plenary Assembly on October 9, expresses deep concern over "heightened tensions in the region", and condemns "continuous illegal occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions of Georgia by Russian Federation, and its military build-up".

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg during the 63rd annual session of the NATO PA in Bucharest stated that Ukraine and Georgia "sooner or later" can become member states of NATO, but at present they should focus on reforms.

NATO'S force will have about 4-thousand Romanian troops supported by forces from nine NATOo countries.

Brandon Marshall's sad Giants season ends in surgery
Beckham is the most significant blow. "We didn't execute at times very well, but they still found a way to get the job done". Henry rushed for just nine yards on four carries, as one of his big gains was countered by a rush for a loss of six.

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said on the occasion of the new Black Sea Forces: "We are not a threat, but we need a dialogue from the standpoint of a strong defense". Bulgaria, Italy and Portugal will train regularly with the force in Craiova, and Germany is also expected to contribute.

In addition to NATO's existing maritime patrols now in the Black Sea, more marines will be sent to the Bulgarian and Romanian ports.

The UK is deploying fighter planes to Romania, Canada is helping patrol Romanian airspace and Italian planes are helping patrol over Bulgaria. According to Stoltenberg, NATO does not want to isolate Russian Federation, because Russia is its neighbour. "The Aegis Ashore system would add another level of deterrence", said Maciej Kowalski, an analyst at the Polish Casimir Pulaski Foundation, referring to the US-built system.

Romanian and Bulgarian surface vessels will continue to patrol the Black Sea. "The main reason is that so far there has been no request for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation role", Stoltenberg said at the parliamentary session in Romania.
