Russian ships prowl by the border

The Russian navy vessels Stoiky and Korolev were seen near the maritime border Thursday, reported Latvia’s National Armed Forces (NBS) on its Twitter feed.

The Stoiky has been encountered on several occasions during the past year as a Steregushiy-class corvette, or small warship.

The Korolev is a large amphibious landing craft.

The military vessels were seen 13 nautical miles, or about 24 kilometers off Latvian territorial waters in the country’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
