Ships of the Russian Navy stopped a night unexpected Ukrainian provocation in the Sea of ​​Azov

Russian warships stopped an unexpected provocation of the Naval Forces of Ukraine in the Sea of ​​Azov.

The ships of the Ukrainian Naval Forces staged an unexpected provocation in the Sea of ​​Azov, relatively close to the territorial waters of Russia. The Russian fleet promptly responded to such actions of the Ukrainian Navy, sending its warships to intercept potential intruders. Notable is the fact that the military exercises were held at night.

It is known that thanks to the appearance of Russian warships, Ukraine's provocative actions were suppressed. After the incident, the press center of the State Border Service of Ukraine announced that military exercises had taken place.

“The ship-and-boat personnel of the Mariupol Naval Guard detachment and the units of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have worked out the coherence of joint actions in the antiamphibious defense of the coast of the Azov Sea. At night, the ships and boats of the Marine Guard went to sea to practice combat maneuvers. During the artillery firing, the Maritime Guard ships practiced warning firing at the intruder, hitting a surface target and eliminating a floating mine. Upon arrival at the site of the shooting, the ships of the Maritime Guard recorded the approach of the Coast Guard ship of the Russian FSB border service. Despite the frequent provocations of the Russians in the Azov waters, the participants in the exercises were ready to react to changes in the situation, but the "unfriendly neighbors" drifted and watched from a distance of about 6 nautical miles. ", - said in the message of the press center of the State Border Service of Ukraine.

Experts note that Ukraine has begun to create provocations in the Sea of ​​Azov more and more often, but it does not come to serious situations.
