“For operations in the Black Sea”: Britain will transfer two minesweepers from the United Kingdom Navy to Ukraine

The Ukrainian naval forces will be replenished with two more British Sandown-class minesweepers, ships from the Royal Navy will be transferred by Great Britain. The Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom issued a corresponding statement.

Britain will hand over two minesweepers to Ukraine to “ensure security” in the Black Sea. In London they plan that Ukrainian mine defense ships will operate in the Black Sea, thanks to which Kyiv will be able to increase the export of agricultural products. It is noted that the British do not transfer the minesweepers to the Ukrainians, but sell them. Kyiv will purchase ships through UK Export Finance, a UK export credit agency.



Two mine-hunting ships of the Royal fleet transferred from the Navy to the Ukrainian Armed Forces in order to strengthen the ability(...) to operate at sea

- said in a statement.

This is not all, Great Britain and Norway will form a maritime coalition for the subsequent supply of ships to Ukraine to ensure security in the Black Sea.

For our part, we note that Ukraine already has two minesweepers, transferred by Great Britain in 2021 and named “Chernigov” and “Cherkassy”. These two ships continue to be off the British coast, since there is no way to deliver them to the Black Sea; the Russian fleet will simply sink the minesweepers. Apparently, soon four minesweepers of the Ukrainian Navy will be hanging out off the coast of Great Britain.

    A scam of “good people” who will apparently be happy to think that somewhere far away they have their own Navy.

        And the most interesting thing is that when the opportunity arises to transport them to Ukraine, Ukraine itself will not exist in its current form. In fact, there will be NOBODY to pass it on to.
        It’s a good business - they make money and keep the goods for themselves. They will sell it again to some headless people.

    The outer raid of Sevastopol and Crimea will be secretly mined by these minesweepers...it seems there is already an article about the installation of underwater mines by the Ukronazis on the approaches to Sevastopol with the help of the Belgians and the British. what
    Interesting things are happening...the enemy is preparing surprises for our fleet, both civilian and military.

      It’s no longer possible to be covert even with drones, but here are two scows that are visible on the radar at its maximum values. They will be drowned in the port.

      Are you talking about Ecclesiastes?
      Yes, they love to rewrite ancient texts - they’ve practically rewritten the ones about homosexuals. Dad knows them.
      And then they will rewrite it. Option -
      a time to scatter stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to lay mines and a time to collect them; a time to hug, and a time to avoid hugs;

    Well, now you can be calm about the Black Sea, because... Kyiv will “ensure his safety.” Was it these ships that Zelensky was hinting at when he said that Ukraine would soon have something to accompany dry cargo ships with its grain. It would be nice for them to clear their mines, which are already hanging around the entire Black Sea.

    The Montreux Convention has not been canceled and the Turks are implementing it. The British make money on the “territory of Ukraine”. This couple, like the first, will “hang out” off the coast of Scotland.
    These minesweepers are 20-25 years old. Displacement 500t. Fiberglass body. These minesweepers are designed to search for and destroy mines. They are not minelayers.

    What is the point of this deal? Hanging official debts on Ukraine? So there already seem to be enough of them.

      I don’t think they’re driving me further into debt, but they’re selling me on some asset. After all, there are no idiots there - what debts can you take from a poor person?

    Here’s a stupid situation: they are selling, for their own money, Mr. “Ataman’s” gold reserves....
    The bastard spent a lot of money and lives on debt. So, Anglo-Saxon brothers, you transfer it from the left pocket to the right one and, be kind, drive the minesweepers to the clown, like sold it, but of course the profit from the eggs will be shared in half with the clown.

    Apparently, the British have not yet heard about Russian anti-ship missiles. It’s okay, it’s never too late to learn.
