Naval mines laid by the Ukrainian military off the coast of Ukraine continue to drift in the Black Sea, drawn by numerous currents. Another mine was discovered by the Turkish military near the maritime border with Bulgaria.

The Turkish Defense Ministry issued a message stating that on Monday, March 27, a sea mine was found in the Black Sea, drifting freely towards the sea border of Bulgaria. A special underwater defense group arrived at the scene, which took up the neutralization of the ammunition.

As noted, this is the third mine neutralized by the Turks. The two previous ones were found in the area of ​​the Bosporus Strait, where there is a busy civil navigation. There is no need to say what the explosion of a civilian ship on a mine could lead to.

Meanwhile, according to military experts, the discovered mines are only the beginning. The Turks, apparently, caught the very first, carried away during a storm from the coast of Ukraine. How many of them actually plucked, no one knows. According to military forecasts, massive mines may appear off the coast of Romania and Bulgaria in a few days.

In total, according to the Russian FSB, the Ukrainian military installed about 420 old-style sea mines in the areas of Odessa, Ochakov, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny. In doing so, they ignored the Underwater Mines Convention, which clearly states that it is prohibited to lay anchored, automatically detonating mines unless they are brought into a safe mode when they break anchor.

The FSB of Russia sent the first warning on March 19, noting that some of the sea mines installed by Ukraine could have been carried away to the open sea after a cable break during a storm. Turkey has already responded to the warning by asking the captains of civilian ships to track mines and everything that looks like them.

    I'm wondering ... will anyone say "thank you" to the Ze regime for planting the mines? It wasn’t the Nazis who set it up ...

      It seems to me that “this is no accident” There were such mines, they stood off the coast, and then once everything by itself accidentally cleared mines, and even in the right direction. Well, it's clear, the storm :)

    Maybe now it is worth inviting the Americans to Odessa?
    USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) for example

      Be afraid! Mines are drifting everywhere!
      PS And it would be nice to catch a mine on Cook, maybe then Bidon would have thought who he was arming ... Although it is unlikely ...

        There is an opinion that if now some DDG Cook or not Cook, or the Prince of Wales comes to the Black Sea, then he will catch a mine with 100% probability. The crew of the "mine" will be thanked.
        PS. Well, since the dill has screwed up so much, you can’t miss such a chance, and you need to turn everything to your advantage.

    There is a big suspicion that it was not a storm, but the mines were specially allowed to float freely.

    That would be cool, such a warning!!! but it's very dangerous!
    That's interesting, but who will be blamed if someone blows up and sinks ???

    When we were young in the 80s, we inflated a black glove, the load was on the rope (rope) and overboard. It looks on the water, the ball and horns stick out. The Norwegians didn’t like it. It was necessary to have something to have fun, from the heavy monotonous work.

    this is the third mine neutralized by the Turks
    Something is not heard that the Turks made any claims to the Ukrainian side, or at least expressed concern. Yes, and "the whole world is with us" is silent about this, preferring to talk about the possible use of chemical weapons by Russia (?) and how to respond to it. Maybe they will come to their senses when one of the European ships takes off into the air?

    The Turks are furious, because. more and more obsolete, but no less dangerous sea mines, exposed by the Ukrainian Navy along the coast, are sailing towards them.
    Ze and other commentators from 404 and those who picked up the words of the Western media from their lies - slander that it was the Russians who set up such mines and they, they say, alone are to blame for the drift of mines towards the straits.
    The Turks can only watch and fix the ducts and take measures to neutralize this dangerous Ukrainian scrap metal.
    It's only the beginning. 404 helped the crisis and panic in the world, because. now, perhaps, the Bosporus and the Dardanelles may become unnavigable when most of the mines reach those coveted straits.
    All trade will stop. Even the fleets of NATO and the USA are not very eager, like Captain Farragut 05.08.1864/XNUMX/XNUMX. in US Mobile Bay, rush to attack through the mines ("Damn mines! Forward! Full speed!"). The Jews from Kyiv/Krakow made us happy.

    Here I look at Turkey entrusted with the solution of the problem. wink alone will not pull.

    Two classic Russian questions voiced by the classics of Russian literature - "Who is to blame?" and "What to do?"

    No wonder "Who is to blame?" stands first - even in the UN, where they pour so much dirt on us that Nebenzya is tired of raking it there alone, let them admit that THIS is a war crime of Ukraine.
    Let them draw conclusions from this - how and for what Ukraine is fighting. Only the conclusions are not in terms of supplying them with modern anchor mines, but in terms of ending military support for the current regime. The plan is to wash your eyes from the dirt with which they are stuck and see what Ukraine, with THEIR support, has done over the past eight years.

    Then let's move on to the second part - "What to do?". Then our minesweepers may come in handy, and we will invite the British-Americans-French to catch mines. If they don’t rush, it’s a really dangerous thing to do, and not to tickle the bear’s heels.

    Well, it makes no sense to ask the first question, since the answer has long been paid for. Russia is to blame for everything that has happened or will happen! And for all democratic and Svidomo is an axiom!
