The Naval Forces Flotilla boat Rezekne identified two warships of the Russian Armed Forces near Latvia's economic zone. Russia's corvette "Stereguschiy" was located 5.7 nautical miles (nmi) from Latvia's exclusive economic zone, while "Kilo" class submarine was detected 1.7 nmi from the zone.

As reported, on July 22, the Russian naval ship "Syzran" was observed approximately 6.5 nmi from Latvian territorial waters.

The ship did not enter Latvian waters, thus the Latvian Navy only observed the ship's movements.

Similar incidents took place on 24 June and 21 June, when the Russian naval ships "Soobrazitelny" and "Boikiy" were observed near Latvian waters.

Previous reports indicate that Russian military airplanes have been observed near Latvia's territorial waters particularly often this summer.
