The Black Sea Fleet’s Project 1135M frigate Pytlivy is tracking the NATO ships that entered the Black Sea on Monday, a military and diplomatic source told TASS on Tuesday.

“Various forces and reconnaissance means of the Black Sea Fleet are involved in tracking the NATO ships. The guard ship Pytlivy is directly monitoring the NATO warships,” the source said.

The guided missile frigates Virginio Fasan of the Italian Navy and Fredericton of the Canadian Navy entered the Black Sea on Monday. Russia’s National Defense Control Center said that the Black Sea Fleet’s forces and capabilities were tracking the movements of the two NATO frigates.

According to the Romanian Navy’s website, during their stay in the Black Sea, the NATO frigates will surveil the sea, air and underwater situation and hold joint drills with regional partners.

Under the Montreux international convention, the ships of non-Black Sea states may stay in the Black Sea for no more than 21 days.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
