Former Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov said Russia Today that the construction of the US operations centre of the Navy in Ochakovo will be another round of conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

According to Azarov, “it is the real provocation, because right now, Ukraine faces a much deeper problem – first of all, modernization of the economy, industry, improvement of living standards of the population.”

On 7 August the U.S. Navy announced that the construction part of the naval forces of the United States erected an operational control centre for the Ukrainian fleet in Ochakovo the Nikolaev area.

It is noted that the American battalions are in Ochakovo from April 2017 to establish contacts and obtain permits for the work.

Besides the operational center of the Ukrainian Navy, the US military will build a repair shop for boats and checkpoints on the perimeter protection of the base.

Ochakov is situated on the Black sea coast near the mouth of the Dnieper.
