Russia is attempting to redeploy its ships from Crimea to the Novorossiysk base. The head of the Joint Press Center of the Southern Operational Command, Natalia Humeniuk, reported this during the "Unified News" telethon.

"The situation with Russian ships in the Black Sea is constantly changing. They are trying to relocate everything to the Novorossiysk base, realizing that being in the waters of the Crimean Peninsula is dangerous. However, this base is territorially smaller than the ones they had and used in Crimea. Therefore, they are obviously looking for ways to fit this logistics into the available territory. Ports of Abkhazia, for example, were considered for this purpose to expand the base facilities," Humeniuk said.

According to her, when we observe an increase in the naval grouping in the Black Sea, it is often associated with the need for these ships to go out and reformat internally at the base.

"We are closely monitoring them and inform each time if the threat is indeed increasing," she emphasized.

At the same time, Humeniuk noted that the presence of missile carriers in the Black Sea, which already have equipped Kalibr missiles, is definitely a danger, regardless of whether these ships are at the base or at sea on combat duty.

"With the transition to combat duty, this danger increases, but it does not disappear when they return to the base," concluded the head of the Joint Press Center of the Southern Operational Command.
