The first half of the day, 07/04/2019, was challenging for pilots and tugboats: from 7 am to 1 pm they delivered and moored 4 warships, 2 container ships and one river-sea cruise liner to the berths. The total length of the hulls of this flotilla is 1180 meters; it took more than a mile and a half of the berthing front to deploy all the ships.


Thus, between 10 am and 12 pm, 4 ships participating in the Sea Breeze 2019 multinational naval exercises were delivered into the coastal harbor: the British destroyer D37 Duncan and three frigates - Toronto (Canadian Navy), Turgutreis (Turkish Navy) and Regele Ferdinand (Romanian Navy).


After 3 pm, the American guided missile destroyer Carney was delivered to the berth from the outside of the Quarantine pier.


The flagship of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine frigate Getman Sagaydachniy is expected to join the above-mentioned group of ships in the near future.


According to the press service of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, tomorrow, on July 5, within the framework of the Sea Breeze exercise, the Sea Component Media Day event will take place at berth №20 of the Passenger Terminal. In particular, the military will provide journalists with the opportunity to visit Ukrainian ships and capture the most vivid moments of anti-sabotage drills on photos and television cameras (advancing to the object (ship), conducting boarding actions, taking the ship under control).


The main events of the Odesa Navy Week (C) will be held at the Passenger Terminal on July 7, the Day of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Since today and until Sunday evening, a large number of visitors are expected at the Passenger Terminal so the military and the police have taken increased security measures.
