The Sea Breeze 2017 naval exercise took place on Wednesday in the port of Varna on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast, as part of NATO’s annual multinational ‘Saber Guardian’ drills. This year’s rehearsal brought together sea forces from 17 nations, including Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, the UK and the US. All in all, 20 ships, one submarine, four jets, two helicopters and more than 1,700 navy personnel took part in the maneuvers. The navy crews demonstrated fire-fighting aboard ships, apprehending refugees along trafficking routes, repelling air-raids and using surface-to-air artillery.
