The French Navy Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) ship Dupuy de Lôme (A 759) crossed the Bosphorus to enter the Black Sea on June 3rd. Last year, the French "spy" ship was deployed four times to the Black Sea, an unprecedented situation. The vessel is undoubtedly deployed to monitor the events currently taking place in East Ukraine.

The Dupuy de Lôme is designed for the collection of signals, communications and electronic emission beyond enemy lines. It is fitted with an impressive array of sensors, most of them developped by Thales.

The French vessel replaced the U.S. Navy Bruke class guided-missile destroyer USS Ross which left for the Mediterranean in the earlier hours of Wednesday. The Montreux Convention of 1936 that regulates the regime of the Turkish straits - the Dardanelles and the Bosporus - says that naval ships of the non-littoral countries can cruise in the Black Sea for not more than twenty-one days.
