Black Sea (Black SeaThe treasure of oil and gas is hidden in this and in this whole sea area, in a way, Russia’s grandeur runs. The Black Sea is the smallest sea in the world, lying between Europe and Asia. It borders Crimea in the south, Georgia and Russia in the east, Bulgaria and Romania in the west. In this Black Sea there is also the Russian port of Sevastopol, which is Russia’s most important military establishment. This maritime border borders six countries, of which four are members of NATO and the fifth NATO member country Ukraine (Ukraine) wants to be. These include Ukraine, Georgia (NATO), Russia, Turkey (NATO), Bulgaria (NATO) and Romania (NATO).
Now let us also tell you about their relationship with Russia. Turkey, a large country on the Black Sea coast, is siding with Ukraine as a member of NATO, but also acting as a bridge between Russia and NATO. Russia places Romania in the category of unfriendly countries. Romania has placed all sanctions on Russia. Now as far as Bulgaria is concerned, it is also in the list of Russia’s unfriendly countries and Russia has today stopped the gas supply of this country along with Poland.
Georgia is also a NATO country. And after the Russia-Georgia war in 2008, there is no diplomatic relation between the two countries. This simply means that five of the six countries on the shores of the Black Sea are either with or are going to NATO. Russia stands alone to save this naval base. Despite this, Russia has more power in the Black Sea. And he is bent on keeping it up. Now you can understand on the map how Russia is building a buffer zone between Ukraine and the Black Sea.
Ukraine’s 3 big cities Mariupol, Odessa and Kharkiv, close to the Black Sea, are on the target of Russia. Mariupol is a very small city geographically, but it has become important for Russia after the annexation of Crimea. Ukraine shares 80 percent of its maritime border with Mariupol, which Russia is claiming to have captured. If Mariupol is captured, Russia will have 80 percent of Ukraine’s coastline adjacent to the Black Sea. This will give a big blow to Ukraine’s maritime trade and it will be cut off from the world. Russia is constantly trying to connect its troops with the rebels present in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, that is, it is preparing a corridor, which will give it a strategic edge in the Black Sea.
5 reasons why the Black Sea has become the center of battle
1. Most of the wheat and steel, which play an important role in Ukraine’s economy, are produced only in the cities situated on the banks of the Black Sea. That’s why Russia wants to occupy Ukraine here to destroy it financially.
2. The Black Sea is a strategic point to establish economic and political dominance over the countries involved in NATO. Where is Russia’s Naval Base? And Russia does not want NATO’s interference in this part.
3. Russia considers the Black Sea to be the economic gateway to Europe. From here he reaches the Mediterranean Sea and also delivers his goods to the major cities of Southern Europe.
4. Many countries of Europe use ‘Black Sea’ as a safe and short route to meet their energy and oil needs. Russia exports most of Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan’s oil through the ‘Black Sea’ to eastern countries such as Germany and Italy.
5. The area around the Black Sea is called the ‘bread basket of the world’. The reason for this is that due to being adjacent to the ‘Black Sea’, this area is very fertile.
treasure in the black sea
Now let us tell you which treasure is hidden in the Black Sea, which Russia does not want to lose at any cost. The Black Sea has reserves of natural gas and oil, which is the biggest source of income for the six adjacent countries. Georgia, Russia, Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania compete for oil and gas production along their maritime borders. The first oil well in the Black Sea was drilled in the Crimea in 1975. Before the annexation of Crimea, Ukraine also tried to extract natural gas from it.
By 2013, Ukraine’s gas production from here reached 1.65 bcm i.e. billion cubic meters. Ukraine’s gas production from here reached 3bcm by 2015, despite the annexation of Crimea. Ukraine’s gas production could not increase after the annexation of Crimea. Nor could he discover new mineral deposits. Surely a new war front can open in the Black Sea at any time during the Ukraine Crisis. That’s because neither Angry Putin is ready to back down nor superpower America. The situation is very delicate.
Anything can happen in the Black Sea at any time because the Ukrainian war has reached Moldova. Where there are constant explosions and which is being considered as the trigger point of the new war front, the special thing is that Moldova also has a connection with the Black Sea.
Like the Donbass, the target of Moldova is Putin’s well-thought-out conspiracy
The war in Transnistria, Moldova…Ukraine has extended to 400 kilometers from Kyiv. This country is also different and the area too, but due to the two blasts here, there has been a stir in the whole world. Tension in Moldova, once a part of Soviet Russia, has increased so much that the situation has become like the Donbass of Ukraine. Security has been beefed up all over the Transnistria region. Moldova’s army and security agency are constantly putting up barricades and check points on the roads. It is reported that pre-war preparations are also being done in the capital Tiraspol. Here on the outskirts of the capital, even concrete barricades have been installed for security.
So the question is whether the target Moldova, like the Donbass, is part of Putin’s well-planned conspiracy, does Russia want to set its war agenda in the Black Sea by inciting war in Moldova? Because Transnistria is an area of Moldova located between Romania and Ukraine, where people of Russian origin run a parallel government. This means that the separatists of Moldova running a parallel government in Transnistria are pro-Russian. The separatists here have been accused of occupying this area only with the help of Russia. This is the reason that after two back to back blasts in Transnistria, Moldova has also started big preparations.
Army ready to fight Russia in Transnistria, Moldova: Zelensky
Ukraine, which has been stunned by Russian attacks, has also raised a roar of war in the name of saving Moldova. Ukrainian President Zelensky has said that his army is ready to fight Russian forces in Transnistria, Moldova. After meeting with the director of the IAEA in Kyiv, Zelensky said that Russia wanted to create instability in the region to threaten Moldova. Zelensky alleges that Moldova helped Ukraine respond to Russian attacks. Russia responded with blasts in Transnistria. If war breaks out there, Ukraine will also fight shoulder to shoulder to defend Moldova.

Moldova also alleges that Russian forces are present in Transnistria .. which can attack Moldova at any time. The dominance of Russian-origin people in Transnistria did not last in a single day. This has been going on for years, but there is also a truth that Moldova may not be a member of NATO but its closeness to America is well known. In such a situation, if Russia clashes with Moldova, then the scope of the war will increase. The situation will be even more explosive.
