The French electronic reconnaissance ship entered the Black Sea and immediately tried to test the strength of the S-400 divisions in Crimea.
Yesterday, the reconnaissance ship Dupuy de Lome A759 passed the Bosphorus Strait on its way to the Black Sea. Its passage was recorded by Turkish bloggers tracking navigation in the strait.
Today, the Avia. Pro reported that the French ship headed to the central part of the Black Sea and allegedly attacked the positional areas of the Russian S-400 on the peninsula, making a disturbance at certain frequencies. “Such actions on the part of France are possible only in the case of interception of radio frequencies emitted by the S-400 radar, which probably means that the West does possess such information after numerous flights in the locations of the S-400 deployment,” the newspaper believes. According to open sources, Crimea hosts four S-400 divisions.
The French ship Dupuy de Lome A759 has repeatedly entered the Black Sea to gather intelligence. Including this year. The aim of Dupuy de Lome is to intercept and analyze all types of signals, including satellites. The ship’s equipment is capable of intercepting state-of-the-art transmissions, including e-mail and telephone calls.
The arrival of the French reconnaissance ship in the Black Sea occurred immediately after flights along the borders of Russia, near Crimea, American B-52 bombers.
Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told Rossiya 24 TV channel that the intensity of NATO flights near the Russian borders has increased significantly. “The more alarming is that, if they’re used to be mainly reconnaissance aircraft, now regular flights and visits with training, imitation of missile strikes have begun,” the minister said, citing as an example the first in a long time the approach to the Russian borders of the American strategic heavy bombers B-52.
