On the night of July 26 to 27, at least two FSB Coast Guard ships intercepted three foreign ships, Andrei Klimenko, the project manager of Maidan of Foreign Affairs, informed on Facebook.

Shipowners are citizens of the Netherlands, Lebanon and Turkey.

Vessels ZUIDVLIET (Netherlands) and FK HATICE (Turkey) were detained simultaneously at a distance of 27 miles (50 km) from each other.

Earlier, the expert said that small FSB boats did not dare to go to sea for a few days because of the strong wind and rain in the Azov Sea. However, they "compensated" for this by detaining ships before the Kerch Strait.

Klimenko wrote that the detention of ships in the Sea of Azov acquire the nature of a marine safari for the FSB.
