I was watching the news yesterday morning and they had an article about the Black Sea Fleet having to leave Sevastopol by 2017 when their current lease is up. Although Russia want to extend their lease Yushchenko the Ukrainian President is against this. This is tied in with Ukraine wanting to join NATO. I can see this leading to a major problem down the line as the majority of Ukrainians would be very much against the Russians leaving. I have heard that Russia may be building a huge Naval Base at Sochi on the Russian coast of the Black Sea which would ease any tensions over losing Sevastopol. Do any of you guys know anything more about what may develop with this situation as I am very interested in it as my wife is Ukrainian. If Sevastopol does eventually come under NATO then it will be a top place for you Navy Boys to go as the women are stunning and the booze is cheap. Plus Crimea is a beautiful place was there 3 years ago.
