“I think that we need to present a number of arguments that are very clear. On the one hand, it has to do with the aggressive presence and strengthening of the offensive military forces that the Russian Federation has in the Black Sea and on the side of the Black Sea; on the other hand, here, the base in Kogalniceanu (southeast) is ideally located geographically and strategically for these expeditionary elements, and I am convinced that our leaders, our military, our diplomats know these arguments very well, and I am sure that now or in the future they will use their influence and professionalism to be able to promote the interests of our country” – from the point of view of the Russian Federation.
