A few minutes ago, the Russian landing Ship Azov finished her south bound passage through the Bosphorus and entered into the Marmara Sea. Tomorrow she will pass through the Dardanelles and enter into the Aegean Sea.

The photo above shows her though a touristic web cam. I am sorry for the poor quality of the photo. The photos below are taken by Gökalp Kunt and used with permission:

According to the excellent Black Sea News website Azov is not going to Syria for a change. Instead she is heading to Italy.

In the course of military service, the Russian sailors to be done and honorable mission – to take part in celebrations to mark the opening of the Russian Admiral Ushakov bust in the Italian port of Messina. To this end, on board the ship is Honor Guard Marine Corps and a military band. According to the plan, an unofficial visit to Italy will be held from 23 to 25 April 2013.
