The US Navy has launched construction of a maritime operations center in Ukraine which will serve as a “major planning and operation hub” during military exercises hosted by the country.

“Seabees [US Naval Construction Battalions] held a groundbreaking ceremony for a maritime operations center on Ochakov Naval Base, Ukraine, July 25,” the US Navy said in a statement released on Monday.

The Seabees have been in Ochakov since April to establish contracts, obtain construction permits, and perform other logistical tasks for the maritime operations center project, the Navy said.

The maritime operations center is one of three projects that the Seabees will execute in Ochakov.

“Beginning construction in Ukraine is a significant accomplishment,” Lt. j.g. (junior grade) Jason McGee, officer in charge of Det. Ukraine said.

“Our ability to maximize European reassurance initiatives in Ukraine holds strategic importance, and will ultimately improve host nation defense capacity and infrastructure, strengthen relations and increase bilateral training capabilities,” he added.

The Seabees are also set to build a boat maintenance facility and entry control points with perimeter fencing in Ochakov.

  1. Who needs NATO when there is the U.S.? How easy economic deals with Qatar ease tensions. I wonder if China is thrilled to have the IMF? Would not surprise me. Yet what if Israel wants more than just Al-Jazeera gone? Like a Covenant of Democratic Nations put in place?

  2. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.
