4. Snipers
BB seems to be a #5, but that would be the "Spanish" option.

Col. Gen. Anatoly Nogovitsyn warned that NATO has already exhausted the number of military forces it can have in the Black Sea under international agreements and warned Western nations against sending more ships.

"Can NATO which is not a state located in the Black Sea continuously increase its group of forces and systems there? It turns out that it cannot," Nogovitsyn was quoted as saying Wednesday by the Interfax news agency.

Ok, this guy doesn't realize that while Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania have coasts along the Black Sea, he doesn't anymore? Turkey could put their entire (NATO) navy there and not be in any violation.
Let them rant.The more ships the better.
