As of today, April 2, Russia has deployed five ships on combat duty in the Black Sea, including two carriers of Kalibr cruise missiles with a total salvo of 12 missiles.
This was reported on the Facebook page of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
There are up to seven enemy ships in the Mediterranean, of which three are carriers of “calibers” with a total salvo of up to 20 missiles.
There is one enemy ship in the Sea of Azov.
It is noted that over the past day, in the interests of Russia, the passage through the Kerch-Yenikal Strait, which connects the Black and Azov Seas, was made by:
- to the Sea of Azov – six vessels, of which one vessel continued to move in the direction of the Bosphorus Strait;
- to the Black Sea – not a single ship.
Russia continues to violate the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) by turning off automatic identification systems (AIS) on civilian ships in the Sea of Azov, the Navy notes.
