Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen this reported a number of times. Just how many warships does Russia have either down there or own the way? Must be fifty by now. Must be close to 50,000 troops too.

This group is the anti-submarine destroyer Smetlivy, plus three landing ships with Russian marines. As of two weeks ago, they had two warships plus a frigate there. One of the warships, the Admiral Chabanenkom, is claimed to correspond to an American Spruce-class destroyer, and Turkey is making accusations that it took part in the shootdown of the Turkish F4. They also have their aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov on station somewhere in the area.

That's a respectable amount of hardware on station.

Mix that in with the US and Coalition forces in the region and you have a recipe for something bad.
