The forces and means of the Black Sea Fleet began to monitor the actions of the minesweepers-seekers of Tajo of the Spanish Navy and Evropi of the Greek Navy, which entered the Black Sea on February 25, 2021

- said in a statement.

According to the NATO naval command, ships from the NATO Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group (Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group) entered the Black Sea. After the call, ships from the Bulgarian and Romanian fleets, as well as a Turkish training ship, should join it.

The flagship of SNMCMG2 will be the Turkish training ship Sokullu Mehmet Pasa, the group will include the frigate BGS Priboy (Bulgaria), minesweepers ROS Lupu Dinescu (Romania), ESPS Tajo (Spain) and TCG Ayvalık (Turkey). The anti-mine group will take part in the Romanian-Bulgarian exercises "Poseidon", and will also conduct accompanying exercises with the Ukrainian Navy. In addition, ships are scheduled to call at the ports of Constanta (Romania) and Odessa (Ukraine).

(...) the deployment of SNMCMG2 in the Black Sea is an important opportunity to promote understanding, interoperability and trust with our allies and partners

- said the commander of SNMCMG2, the captain of the Turkish Navy Yusuf Karagülle.

It is noted that this is the first call of NATO mine action group ships into the Black Sea this year.

          Almost half of the Black Sea is the territory of NATO countries.

          And of this half, at least half belongs to two Orthodox countries.
          No, to swim near Cape Horn for "... achieving mutual understanding, interoperability and trust ...", but no, everything in the Black Sea is drawn to the Russian shores.
          Are the Russian shores smeared with honey? tongue

      NATO members are looking for loopholes of our submarines at sea, conducting electronic reconnaissance.
      There is nothing good in such trips. This is not a joke.

    What forces and means of the Black Sea Fleet were "taken under observation" ??! This question is not googled!

        Got it! Thank you! And then, after reading this article, I was glad that specific new means of detection and tracking may have appeared immediately at the entrance through the strait.
        Thank you for the dialogue.

    Well, it remains only to wish the "mine action group" to meet with the mine of the Second World War. There are still a lot of them in the Black Sea. There may be fewer people wishing to enter the Black Sea.

          A compromise is needed. Evil NATO ships - evil mines. Good mines for good ships. Of course, during the Second World War, but release no later than 2020! winked

    Zelensky is also protected by other henchmen .. Well, well!
    The plan, voiced by the NATO commander in Brussels, "We need to do something with Russia .." begins.
    What else to do with us? We can only be destroyed if the spirit is enough .. And the spirit of NATO is not enough. Crimea is already a fortress with surprises in the catacombs and fortifications created during the Soviet era and now restored and fortified ..
    Gentlemen want to make a war of nerves? Let's check who has stronger eggs ..)))

    Will the minesweepers be blown up by an ancient mine? Well it has to be so dumb for that to happen

    But there is no guarantee that others will not face it. And minesweepers are unlikely to collide. Rather "civil"

    Well then, Alexey, the same Americans can ask the question, what should our Russian ships do in the Caribbean, for example. After all, Russia is not a Caribbean country. There is an international treaty, and according to it, they have the right to be in the Black Sea. It's another matter if you wanted to be in the Sea of ​​Azov. Then it would make sense. And if you follow your logic, then our ships have nothing to do in the Mediterranean Sea, or in the Red, or in the Persian Gulf, Indian Ocean and in many other places ...

    No, namesake, these are questions of the same order. If we ask the question, what are American, British, Spanish ships doing in the Black Sea (although this is according to the agreement), then they can ask the same question: what are Russian ships doing in the Mediterranean, Red or any other sea that does not wash territory of Russia ...
