Two heavily armed Russian warships were seen transiting the Bosporus Strait this week after completing military drills off the coast of Syria.
The Russian naval ships, Admiral Essen and Admiral Makarov, which are part of the Black Sea Fleet, were seen transiting the Bosporus Strait that links the Mediterranean and Black seas.
The Russian military completed a set of drills on April 8th, which included several warships and aircraft that were deployed around the Hmeimim Airbase in Latakia.
Another round of military drills are expected to take place this weekend before they will wrap up their last phase of the exercises the following week.
The Russian ships entered the Black Sea and made their way towards their home port city of Sevastopol.
The two Russian warships were heavily armed with Kalibr missiles, which were reportedly used during the Russian military’s naval drills in the eastern part of the Mediterranean.
