Russian submarine passes Istanbul to Black Sea amid Ukraine standoff

A Russian Kilo class submarine Rosotv-on-Don passed through Turkey’s Bosphorus strait on Sunday and sailed to the Black Sea against the backdrop of a standoff between Moscow and the West over Ukraine.
Previously six Russian naval landing ships had sailed to Black Sea through Bosphorus Strait during the past week, Reuters reported.
More than 30 ships from the Russian Black Sea fleet have started training exercises near the Crimea peninsula as part of wider navy drills, RIA news agency reported citing the fleet, as Western nations warned that a war in Ukraine could ignite at any moment.
Russia announced last month its navy would stage a sweeping set of exercises involving all its fleets this month and next, from the Pacific to the Atlantic, the latest show of strength in a surge of military activity during the standoff with the West.The post Russian submarine passes Istanbul to Black Sea amid Ukraine standoff first appeared on Ariana News.
