See further from globalsecurity.org:
"Unified Deep Water System of European Russia (EGTC) is the system of inland waterways of Russia, linking the White Sea, the Baltic Sea , the Volga, Moscow, the Caspian Sea and the Sea of Azov to the Black Sea. Guaranteed depth throughout the EGTC are not less than 4.5 meters [about fifteen feet], allowing passage through it, not only by river vessels and river-sea class, but many sea-going vessels, warships and even nuclear submarines (on the surface)."
HARDLY secret waterways. KNOWN about but finding useful function during the Ukraine Conflict. Russian able to move certain naval assets from one area of operations to another without resorting to deep-water extended sailings and patrols.

The SHAME of it all! The SHAME! Ukrainian naval personnel not SCUTTLING their vessels [or damaging them in some manner] rather than allowing them to be captured by the enemy!
