Russian naval force back in Danish waters

The Russian nuclear submarine Dmitri Donskoi and the cruiser Piortr Velikly are now back in Danish waters after participating in exercises in the Baltic Sea and the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Russian Navy's creation on July 30.

Once again, it will be possible to see the world's largest submarine from several Danish coasts when the 172 meter long nuclear-powered ship sails through the Danish waters during Thursday and Friday.

The ships are expected to pass the Storebælt on Thursday evening according to the Defense Operations Center.
Like last time, the Russian vessels are followed all the way through the Danish waters by one of the navy patrol ships.

The huge warships attracted much attention as they passed the inner Danish waters on July 21, where they were followed by hundreds from the coast or from pleasure boats - in addition to numerous photographers, of course.
Today's weather forecast promises clouds across Denmark and therefore it may be difficult to get a glimpse of the ships.

Watch TV footage from TV 2, as the ships passed the Storebælt on the way to the exercises and celebrations at Saint Petersburg.
