According to the weekly, the matter concerns a destroyer and a frigate. The ships will separate from the naval carrier strike group in the Mediterranean Sea and head for the Black Sea through the Bosporus strait.

The newspaper explains that the decision was taken as a sign of support for Ukraine after the US Defence Ministry abandoned the planned sending of two destroyers to the Black Sea in order to prevent further escalation of tensions in the region and not to provoke Russia.
