The ‘Commodore Horia Macellariu’ corvette has left the Mangalia military harbour yesterday evening in order to take part in the activation of the Black Sea Naval Cooperation Task Group (BLACKSEAFOR) from August 4 to August 27. Apart from the Romanian ship, frigates TCG Barbaros (Turkey) and GSG Sokhumi (Georgia), command ship Slavutich (Ukraine), Landing Ship RFS Tsezar Kunikov (Russian Federation) and corvette Smeli (Bulgaria) will take part in this activation.

The activities of the BLACKSEAFOR Naval Group will consist of counter-mine naval exercises, search and rescue operations, humanitarian assistance and environmental protection.
