A senior member of the Russian Federation Council, Lacy Boschkov, criticized the sailing of US warships in the Black Sea, saying that the move had nothing to do with the security of the United States.
Bushkov said US naval vessels were politically motivated and should therefore stay away from Russia’s coastline, Reuters reported.

“The visits of US warships to the Black Sea are frequent, and these visits have nothing to do with American security,” wrote Pushkov, a member of the Russian Federation’s Information Policy Committee, on his Twitter account on Sunday.

Meanwhile, a court in Russia this week renewed the detention of 24 Ukrainian sailors held by Moscow and their ships last November in the Kerch Strait, which links the Black Sea with the Azov Sea. They are accused of illegally entering Russian territorial waters.
