Ukrainian Naval Commander Visits Turkey

The Commander of Ukrainian Navy Vice-Admiral Yurii Ilyin Ivanovych visited Turkey as a guest of Admiral Murat Bilgel, Commander of Turkish Naval Forces.

Neither Ukrainian nor Turkish Navy made any public announcements about this visit. Instead of the PR officers in both navies we should be thanking the marketing department of ADIK shipyard for the following photos and the text. As it is a marketing text it does not answer any serious questions like why Vice-Admiral Yurii Ilyin Ivanovych was in Turkey and about what did the two commanders talked about etc.
