In the last weeks of 2013 we are seeing a slightly increased traffic of Russian warships through Turkish Straits.

The factory ship PM-138 returned to the Black Sea on 19 December 2013 where as the large landing ships Yamal, Alexander Shabalin and Nikolay Filchenkov have been deployed to the Mediterranean.

One Response to Russian Warship Movements Through Turkish Straits (Part 36)

  1. miktar says:

    I assume that the PM-138 was the vessel based in Tartus, Syria. In the past the Russians have rotated a repair vessel into Tartus when one left–I wonder if that means that there is no Russian naval presence in Tartus right now and what are the Russians signaling by doing this..
