The time permitted to French intelligence gathering ship A-759 Dupuy de Lôme by Montreux Convention was up on 6 July 2014. We did not witnessed her southbound passage but she must be out of the Black Sea by now.

And the US cruiser CG-72 USS Vella Gulf made her second northbound passage this year. According to the US 6th Fleet, she is going to take part in the Bulgarian led naval exercise Breeze 2014.
