(Source : NATO Allied Maritime Command) – Ships of Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group One (SNMCMG1) will visit Stockholm, Sweden on 30 October as part of its routine deployment in the Baltic Sea region. The port visit in Stockholm will take place on completion of two weeks of historical ordnance disposal operation in Estonian waters.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the port visit program was scaled down, and for all other SNMCMG1 personnel, the visit is mainly designated for rest and logistic supply, before continuing their deployment in SNMCMG1. (…)
