The threat of Ukrainian mines forced Turkey to put minesweepers on high alert

19

Turkey is seriously concerned about the appearance of Ukrainian sea mines brought by currents to the area of ​​the Black Sea straits, Turkish minesweepers are on high alert. This was reported by the Ministry of Defense of the country.


According to a report released by the Turkish military, the Navy's mine defense ships and maritime patrol aircraft aviation transferred to a special mode of service due to the threat of drifting sea mines. At the same time, cooperation has been established with the Bulgarian and Romanian navies on the issue of mine detection and informing about the areas of their occurrence.

As stated, all discovered mines are destroyed with the application of security measures.

To date, it is impossible to calculate the number of torn and carried away sea mines laid by the Ukrainian military in the Black Sea near Odessa, Ochakov, Yuzhny and Chernomorsk. According to available information, at least 420 sea anchor mines were installed along the coast, in violation of technology, which, according to the Kiev military leaders, should have prevented the landing of Russian troops. Some of the mines were blown off as a result of a storm that broke out, and the Black Sea currents ensured their drift. It is not excluded that some of the mines can even get into the Mediterranean Sea.

Meanwhile, the Russian fleet daily opens special humanitarian corridors for the exit of foreign ships from the ports of Ukraine, which cannot leave them due to the high mine danger. However, the nationalists who have settled in the ports do not let the ships out, intending to hide behind foreigners in the event of a Russian offensive. In total, according to the Ministry of Defense, about 60 civilian ships of foreign states are held in the ports of Odessa, Ochakovo and Yuzhny.

    The Romanians also seem to have already destroyed one mine. Normal workouts. Just for the sake of reality - maybe in a couple of years it will bang somewhere. Kismet, as they say. Fate.

          You can also add your own mines "on the sly" - let them train. given the behavior of the Turks, it is absolutely not a pity. The duplicitous position of Turkey is already beginning to bother.

      I have a theoretical question: mines have already been used up. This is known. This means that the tightness of the case is no longer a fact that it is dense. Does this mean that detonation at depth is possible? There is continuous hydrogen sulfide at a depth of 200 meters. This is not just a pipe for red mullet and horse mackerel - it can be much cooler.
      What does comrade Tralflot have to tell us on this issue, as a Black Sea resident?) (in the style of Joseph Vissarionich)

      And not only in a couple of years, but also in 20 years it will thump. In the Marquis Puddle in the mid-60s, as the ice drift began, that “booze” was constant, in 1966, a BGK was blown up on the fairway in Oranienbaum, so no candy wrappers were found. A little earlier, in the Muhu Strait, Vyain RR ran into a mine, but was lucky "it thumped with a delay, the people were intact, the ship was afloat, but after that it went" on needles ". The echo of idiocy will sound for a long time on the sea routes ..

    So far, the Turks are lucky, but I wonder what they will say or do if a couple of their ships on mines from a "friendly" uk-roin blow up and sink in the strait?

        Let Erdogan speak with the "Ukrainian delegation" about this, and about mines. And then he undertook to engage in peacekeeping and supply bayraktars!

    . Honestly, you ask yourself a simple question ... why is it that the Sultan decided to make friends with the Saloreich, as T. Montyan calls the Kukuevskys ???

    Erdogan froze. He stirred up the negotiations, now he has kicked out the minesweepers. This is how the Ukrainians “helped” him, whom he supported in every possible way against Russia. And here you see, the old mines were let loose on him, which threatens to block the straits.

    And so the mines will continue to break. Turkey needs to trawl the source.
