Russian satellites, ships and aircraft are monitoring the Sea Breeze-2017 military drills, which are taking place in north-western part of the Black Sea, a source in Crimea's security agency told Sputnik on Tuesday.

SEVASTOPOL (Sputnik) — The drills, which began on Monday and will last until July 23, are taking place in the north-western part of the Black Sea in Ukraine's Odessa and Mykolaiv regions, bringing together representatives of 16 states, including France, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, and involving 31 ships, 29 aircraft and over 3,000 troops.

How Ukraine Aims to Provoke Russia at Sea Breeze War Games in Black Sea
The source added that a Russian intelligence ship Priazovye was located close to the area of drills.

The Sea Breeze war games are annual multinational drills that train maritime, air defense, anti-submarine, and search and rescue operations, with the aim to strengthen cooperation among NATO allies so as to ensure stability in the Black Sea region.

In January, the Ukrainian parliament adopted a law allowing foreign troops to be present in the country in 2017 to participate in multinational drills. The document outlines the admission of the US military, military of other NATO member states and the countries participating in the NATO's Partnership for Peace program totaling up to 3,000 personnel with weapons and military equipment, up to six aircraft and helicopters for up to 365 days in January-December 2017.
