National Armed Forces (NBS) tweets Monday morning reported the sighting overnight of a Russian Federation naval submarine support vessel CC-750.

The sighting happened about 14 nautical miles off of Latvia's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) waters.

This particular type of ship appeared also on two separate occasions during the month of September. On September 4 it was seen together with its accompanying Kilo-class submarine.

Later Monday afternoon, the NBS tweeted another sighting as follows, prompting an added update to the above headline from overnight:

This apparently brings the total number of sightings of Russian navy vessels near Latvia's maritime jurisdictions to three in just one day, the first day of business as usual after the nation's parliamentary election results were taking shape.
