Bulgarian Navy to conduct two multinational exercises by end of 2022

The Bulgarian Navy will conduct two larger exercises with international participation by the end of 2022 with Varna as the host port, the commander of the Bulgarian Navy, Rear Admiral Kirill Mihailov, announced today at VTA.

One of the exercises, codenamed Poseidon, will be conducted by the Bulgarian and Romanian navies but is open to navies from other countries as well. The exercise, which focuses on mine countermeasures, is carried out by tradition and was not caused by the war in Ukraine, the rear admiral reminded.

The second exercise, called “Triton”, specializes in diving exercises, the commander explained. Participants will do various exercises including mine destruction.

“The war in Ukraine has fundamentally changed our work and brought us face to face with new challenges, including the risk of mines,” Mihailov said at a ceremony celebrating the 143rd anniversary of the Bulgarian Navy. He thanked the sailors for their persistent daily efforts to guarantee the safety of navigation and sea lanes. The rear admiral clarified that Navy men have already responded to more than 40 distress signals for floating objects. “We will continue to respond to every alert so that the world is calm and the safety of navigation is guaranteed.”
