The present thesis aims to provide an overview of the Russian war
machine as it deploys in the Black Sea region. The reports focus on the region's
states that host significant parts of Russia's Military within their territory. The
time frame is mainly the 21st century and generally the post-Soviet period,
without omitting the Soviet background in order to provide a complete time line.
The aim is to emphasize on the military presence as a report to Russian bases,
stations, troops, equipment, hardware and information for the above, and of
course the reasons and the procedures of their deployment in each location.
What is sure is that for the Russian Federation of the 21st century, Black Sea
region is a top priority, regarding the security, the strategic power, the military
upgrade and of course the cooperation with its allies.
