UPDATED: Russian Warship Movements Through Turkish Straits (Part 3)

110_2

As the source is from a public webcam, the image quality is not very good but there are actually two Russian warships in it. I have marked them with red circles.

Two Russian large landings ships, Ropucha class 102 Kaliningrad and 110 Alexander Shabalin, which returned to the Black Sea on 25 March 2013 are sailing back to the Mediterranean today. I have no information whether they are going to Syria or to the Baltic Sea.  I would appreciate any additional information.

I hope I will soon have better photos of them. Now I have more photos of the southbound Alexander Shabalin. She seems to have spend most of the past 17 days receiving a fresh coat of paint. She was like a rust bucket when we last saw her and her companion Kaliningrad.
