About three months ago the Russian Navy BSF Moma-class AGI intel ship Liman returned from a 97 days deployment in the Mediterranean Sea. Today it was sunk because of a collision with a Turkish freighter in the Black Sea. The Turkish government has been quick to send its regrets to the Russian government. There are no details as to the cause of the collision as of yet. There are no casualties reported and all hands have been rescued according to authorities. The Liman was a Moma Class communications and hydro-graphic research vessel that is considered to be a spy ship.
