UK Intelligence: Russian troops may try to intercept commercial vessels in Black Sea


Russian side may try to intercept commercial vessels in the Black Sea after it pulled out of the Black Sea Grain Initiative, according to UK’s defense ministry.

Report informs via the BBC that the BSGI had moderated the involvement of the Black Sea in the war, but ‘there is now the potential for the intensity and scope of violence in the area to increase.’

According to the information, the modern corvette SERGEY KOTOV, has deployed to the southern Black Sea, patrolling the shipping lane between the Bosphorus and Odesa.

“There is a realistic possibility that it will form part of a task group to intercept commercial vessels Russia believes are heading to Ukraine,” the post says.
