On Wednesday, the Greek navy extended an advisory that bans ship traffic off the southeastern Peloponnese coast, which two sources mentioned was primarily targeted at deterring ship-to-ship transfers of Russia’s oil off Greece.

Greece has published two NAVTEX notices for the military exercises in the Laconian Gulf region over the past few weeks, in a rare measure urging merchant vessels and other vessels not to use the area.

One of these was issued on 1 May.
