Yomiuri, Sankei, and Nikkei said that according to the Defense Ministry, five Chinese frigates and supply ships and five Russian destroyers and other types of warships together transited the Tsugaru Strait to the Pacific Ocean on Monday, saying that this was the first time for the two navies’ warships to pass through the strait together. The operation appeared to be part of a joint exercise that the two militaries have been carrying out in the Sea of Japan this month, with Sankei noting that the ships were apparently sailing in formation.
