Natalia Humeniuk, Head of the joint press centre of Operational Command Pivden (South), also warned of the presence in the Black Sea of a group of Russian ships and the threat of missile strikes. She said it could also be "psychological pressure on the population".

Because the [Russian – ed.] ships carrying missiles are equipped, prepared, and the fact that they from time to time enter the base points can speak of a response to the weather, because the storm situation is very changeable."

Background:

  • As of 1 December, Russia has six ships on combat duty in the Black Sea, but vessels carrying Kalibr cruise missiles were removed.
