According to bourgas.ru, so far the Bulgarian Navy has responded to 18 signals of floating mine-like objects in the Bulgarian waters of the Black Sea, but, fortunately, none of them posed a real danger. This was stated by the commander of the Bulgarian Navy, Rear Admiral Kiril Mikhailov.
The Navy, together with Romania and Turkey, is conducting a continuous operation to control the sea areas to ensure the safety of navigation, Mikhailov added.
According to him, flights of maritime patrol aircraft are also carried out. According to Mikhailov, there is a constant exchange of information about which mine-like objects are detected, and they react to each signal. He specified that the signal about this was received yesterday in Romanian waters.
Kiril Mikhailov added that preparations are underway for the certification of two minesweepers purchased for the fleet in the Netherlands.
According to him, there is still more to be done to get Struma and Mesta into action, but things are moving along regularly.
Recall that mines in the Black Sea, in February 2022, “lost” the Russian Navy, later trying to blame Ukraine, which does not have warships today, for such actions.
