This is the second spotting of a military unit on the Baltic sea surface, as Wednesday there was also a sighting of two ships inside Latvia’s Exclusive Economic Zone but quite close to its official territorial jurisdiction in those waters. On that occasion it was a Kilo-class sub and survey ship snooping around 10 nautical miles (18.5 km) from the state line.
