UPDATED: Russian Warship Movements Through Turkish Straits (Part 40)

Today, two Ropucha class landing ship from Russian Navy passed through Bosphorus for their Syrian deployment.


Unfortunately I was not able to identify the ships as I watched them through the web cam. I appreciate any information regarding these ships.

UPDATE: These ships are Georgiy Pobedonosets and Azov. Here is a photo gallery of them passing through the Dardanelles the other day.

The list of Russian warship movements in 2014:

    Large landing ship (BDK) Baltic Fleet “Minsk” and the Black Sea BDK “Yamal” Tuesday overcame the Bosphorus and entered the operational control of a permanent task force of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean.

  2. YAMAL later was corrected as AZOV

    Definately Minsk and Azov
