Three vessels assigned to Standing NATO Maritime Group Two (SNMG-2) have passed through the Turkish Straits and entered the Black Sea.

The Turkish Yavuz/Barbaros-class frigate TCG Salihreis, Canadian Halifax-class frigate HMCS Fredericton and Italian Bergamini-class frigate ITS Virginio Fasan (pictured) transited through the Çanakkale Strait on 22 March, moving through Istanbul the following day.

According to a press release from the Romanian Naval Forces, its ex-Type 22 frigate ROS Regina Maria and the Bulgarian frigate BGS Drazki will join SNMG-2 in the Black Sea.

The task force will conduct naval, air and anti-submarine surveillance missions
