Watch: NATO anti-mine vessels on show

Six anti-mine vessels from the military alliance NATO docked in Helsinki this weekend. Members of the public were able to board the vessels for a close-up view.

The mine-seekers hail from the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Poland, Germany and Estonia and all docked at Helsinki’s Katajanokka harbour for the weekend.

The routine visit is being hosted by Finland’s Naval Academy and will see the vessels replenish their stores and give the 260 crew members on the board the ships much needed shore leave.

According to the Finnish Navy the NATO fleet will participate in joint operational exercises with their Finnish counterparts before continuing on to Poland and Germany Monday.
