“NATO base” in Ukraine: what is Russia scared about

Russian conspiracy theorists of military affairs have started talking about the fact that the Center in Ochakov creates an immediate danger for the Black Sea Fleet in the Crimea, and, consequently, Ukraine intentionally provokes the Russian Federation.

Russia needs to be afraid of somebody, Russia needs to aggravate the situation, therefore the issue here is more political than the security one. “
