As Parlamentskaya Gazeta wrote, in March 2022, the FSB Public Relations Center reported that the Ukrainian Navy had installed about 420 mines on the approaches to the ports of Odessa, Ochakov, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny. The FSB warned that due to the poor condition of the cables, some mines fell off and began to drift. They may end up in the Bosphorus and further in the seas of the Mediterranean basin, the department noted.
