“The Navy ship NRP Sines accompanied and monitored the Russian Federation ships Vice Admiral Emylianov and Paromov, which sailed in transit off the Portuguese mainland coast”, highlighted the Navy, in a statement.

“The monitoring of Russian naval units arises from the defense of national interests and the exercise of State authority at sea, and is a procedure that represents a contribution to global security, also demonstrating Portugal's commitment to the Alliance's collective effort to maintain maritime situational awareness”.
