NATO warships armed with strategic weapons, official says

NATO warships stationed in Black Sea offshore waters are equipped with strategic weapons, Colonel-General Anatoly Nogovitsyn, deputy head of the Russian military's General Staff, said at a briefing today. Particularly, the ships are armed with cruise missiles with a range of 2,500 kilometers or more, the official said.

Nogovitsyn also expressed doubt over humanitarian aid delivered by the NATO ships. The cargo allegedly transported by them could be bought on the nearest flea market, without wasting such naval resources, he pointed out. Some of the warships arrived from Poland, which is a long way, the general said, concluding that this could hardly be merely humanitarian aid.
