During the exercises, under the supervision of the Greek instructors, the representatives of the Georgian Coast Guard and the Ukrainian Navy and Coast Guard planned and carried out a high-risk boarding operation, which included stopping the vessel in violation of maritime regulations, climbing aboard using a tactical ladder, movement aboard, verifying identities of persons aboard, and establishing control over the vessel.
U.S. Sixth Fleet and the Ukrainian Navy are co-hosting the multinational maritime exercise Sea Breeze 2021. The exercise is taking place from June 28 to July 10 in the Black Sea region. The annual exercise includes sea, land, and air components, and aims to enhance interoperability among participating forces and increase the joint capabilities to ensure regional maritime security.

  • U.S. Embassy Supported Exercise for Georgian Security Partners

    This Joint Maritime Operations Center Table Top Exercise (JMOC TTX) facilitated by DTRA’s International Counterproliferation Program, brought together Georgia’s maritime-oriented interagency on 8-11 August to collaboratively respond to port and coastal security scenarios.

    Members of the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S Defense Threat Reduction Agency worked shoulder to shoulder at various locations along Georgia’s Black Sea Coast with Georgian security partners from the Maritime Transport Agency, the Coast Guard, the State Security Service, the Emergency Management Service and other organizations to address maritime security challenges.

    The exercise builds on the JMOC TTX executed in September 2021 and will carry momentum into a JMOC TTX planned in spring 2023.

    Participating agencies will be able to use lessons learned to develop enhanced response procedures and plans. Lessons will also potentially inform national-level maritime security strategy and legislation.

    The JMOC TTX showcases another example of the U.S. government’s long-standing support to the government of Georgia.

  • EU and IOM donate fast response boats to Georgia’s coast guard

    On 16 June, the European Union and  the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) donated four modern boats to Georgia’s Coast Guard.

    These rapide response boats with a total cost of around 5 million laris will be deployed in Poti and Batumi. They will support the Coast Guard in patrolling coastal waters and conducting effective search and rescue operations, as well as to enhance interdiction capabilities. 

    The main technical specifications of the boats have been tailored to the needs of the Coast Guard to ensure compatibility with the maritime surveillance equipment and systems already in place in Georgia.

    Safe and secure borders are key for citizens in Georgia, as in any country. Ensuring security of and around the Black Sea – the physical bridge between the EU and Georgia – is a shared priority for both Georgia and the EU,” said Catalin Gherman, from the EU Delegation to Georgia, during the ceremony in Poti.

    The boats were donated within the project ‘Support to Integrated Border Management in Georgia’, implemented by the IOM in the framework of the EU’s ‘EU4 Security, Accountability and Fight against Crime in Georgia’ (SAFE) programme.
