The main goal of See Breeze 2023 is to gain experience for Ukrainian deminers – Ukrainian Navy

Ukrainian sailors are also practicing cooperation with colleagues from the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Romania, Turkey, and Bulgaria. Dmytro Pletenchuk, spokesman for the Ukrainian Navy, said this at a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Odesa.

“The main goal of the exercise is to ensure the safety of navigation and gain experience for our sappers who carry out demining on and underwater. Right now (at 12:00 PM Kyiv time – ed.) our servicemen are training together with sailors from the U.S. and Romania. We had enough time to share our experience and assess what capabilities we have gained,” – the officer said.

He added that the exercises should not be linked to russian attacks on Ukraine’s Danube ports, as their main goal is to assess joint work with the naval units of partner states.
