On 7thFebruary 2013 two more Russian warships passed through Bosphorus on their northbound journey back to the Russia.

This time it was two Ropucha class landing ships from the Baltic Fleet; 102 Kaliningrad and 110 Alexander Shabalin. As these ships are based in the Baltic Sea I believe they are carrying equipment and/or personnel from Syria ass they seem to be heavier compared to the two ships that passed on Monday.

As the Russian ships started to return to their home ports after a long deployment in the Mediterranean it is time again for me update their traffic through the Turkish Straits:
