Five Russian warships were deployed in the Black Sea as of 12:00 p.m. of April 2, including two equipped with a total of 12 Kalibr cruise missiles, Ukraine’s navy reported on Facebook.

There is one enemy warship deployed in the Sea of Azov and up to seven Russian ships in the Mediterranean Sea, including three Kalibr carriers with a total salvo of 20 missiles.

Six vessels with Russian interests passed through the Kerch Strait in the past 24 hours, the Navy said.

"Russia continues to violate the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) by disabling automatic identification systems(AIS) on civilian vessels in the Sea of Azov," the Ukrainian military said.
