Replacement of Russian Navy ships in the Mediterranean Sea is not related to the deteriorating situation in Syria
This was reported by RIA Novosti on Thursday, quoting a senior representative of the High Command of the Russian Navy. Earlier, some media reported that the group of Russian ships of the Mediterranean Sea will be updated due to the situation around Syria. "The ships, which are in the Mediterranean and in other parts of the world, follow the plan of the Navy Command and General Staff and perform tasks as outlined by the Command" - the spokesman said. “Upon completion of these tasks, ships either return to their base, or are replaced by other ships to continue the tasks,” he added.
