Russian Navy Black Sea Fleet HQ worried new buiding may breach naval base security

The Staff of the Russian Black Sea Fleet said it faces information safety problems over plans to build a hotel in the immediate vicinity of its headquarters.

The construction of a high-rise hotel building within 50 meters from the Black Sea Fleet headquarters in the Ukrainian city of Sevastopol is due to begin this year.

“The fleet’s command is seriously concerned over plans to build a hotel near our headquarters,” a Black Sea Fleet source said.

“Wiretapping and jamming equipment and can easily be installed in the hotel building. The threat of tapping incoming and outgoing secret reports and orders, as well as phone conversations, will become completely real,” he went on.

He said that objects of military importance, including the headquarters itself, should always be individual buildings surrounded with a high-security perimeter.

“Subversive actions and provocations directed at officers should not be ruled out either,” the source added. “However, it will be impossible for us to take any anti-terrorist or anti-subversive measures in the hotel because this will be private property.”
