Russia's SPARTA IV


Today on the Telegraph’s Ukraine: The Latest podcast, we bring you news of Putin’s visit to China and look at how Russia is using a ghost fleet in the Black Sea to circumvent regulations on maritime transit through the Bosporus in a time of war. Joining the panel for this episode was Jack Crawford, Research Analyst from RUSI’s Open Source Intelligence and Analysis group. Jack’s report, ‘Ghost Ship, Russia’s Secret Naval Fleet’, provides evidence that a Russian ship called Sparta IV, which is a general cargo vessel, is being used as a military ship and has transported military equipment as part of Russia’s war effort.
