The Russian side issued a NOTAM warning, in which it indicated that it was closing most of the neutral waters of the Sea of \u10b\uXNUMXbAzov. This made it possible to completely block the region for Ukrainian warships. An additional force in the region is represented by XNUMX Russian warships that passed through the Kerch Strait about a day ago, heading towards the Ukrainian coast.
Russian warships (~10) passed through the fairway of the Crimean bridge and headed for the Sea of Azov.

In the presented image, you can see the NOTAM warning zone, which actually makes it possible to block Ukrainian warships in case the latter try to strike at the southern part of the DPR or on Russian territory. The situation in the region, among other things, is completely controlled by Russian warships, as previously reported by the Avia.pro news agency.
It should be noted that in the event of the slightest attempt to carry out aggression from the waters of the Sea of Azov, Russia can use its coastal missile systems to quickly destroy enemy ships.
