MOSCOW, September 15. /TASS/. Six Northern Fleet warships have passed the Kola Bay to enter the Barents Sea where a practical stage of the all-arms forces’ command post exercise will be held, Fleet spokesman Vadim Serga told TASS on Tuesday.
"The Admiral Ushakov destroyer and the Vice-Admiral Kulakov large anti-submarine ship left the Northern Fleet’s main base to avoid a simulated enemy’s strikes. The Rassvet and Iceberg Small missile ships, as well as the Brest and Yunga small antisubmarine ships left their base in Polyarny," he added.
A mine-sweeping force from the Kola Flotilla composed of the Yadrin and Kolomna mine-sweepers supported the ships’ departure from their bases, the spokesman said.
At present, the ships are staying in dispersal areas in the Barents Sea where the crews have practised defensive measures against enemy underwater commandos during an offshore anchorage, he said.
"Clearing surface forces of a simulated enemy’s reach is the first practical step in the all-arms forces’ command post exercise, which has started in the Northern Fleet," Serga said.
