The Naval Forces of Egypt and Russia are conducting once again the joint exercise “Bridge of Friendship – 5”. 

The exercise is taking place in the Mediterranean region and the Russian Navy is participating with two Steregushchiy-class corvettes. Back in 2020, the exercise took place in the Black Sea, whereas last year and this year it took place in the Mediterranean region. 

The joint projection of power by the two states in the Mediterranean region is a strong joint message to the government of Tripoli in Libya. At the same time, it reflects Russia’s established naval presence in the Mediterranean, particularly due to its influence in Syria, and additionally proves the multifaceted foreign policy that Cairo follows within the framework of the multipolar international system being formed.
