“Smetlivy monitors the activity of NATO vessels to promptly respond to the possible emergency situations, which pose the threat to the civilian navigation,” the message said.
According to the leadership of the Black Sea Fleet, its vessels acted in accordance with the international legal norms.
As we reported U.S. missile-armed destroyer USS Carney passed the Bosphorus and entered the waters of the Black Sea.
Besides, the A759 Dupuy de Lome, a French ship designed for the collection of signals and communications, entered the Black Sea.
It should be noted that the French vessel will not participate in Sea Breeze – 2019. It will be interested in Russian vessels tracking USS Carney. To cut it short, this is wiretapping of a wiretap. Dupuy de Lome will monitor the active stage of drills.
