VLADIVOSTOK, March 31. /TASS/. Ships of Russian Pacific Fleet will take part in the 2016 ADMM-PLUS international Maritime Security and Counterterrorism Exercise in the South China Sea in May, a spokesman for the Eastern Military District told TASS on Thursday.
"Pacific Fleet ships will be engaged in the exercise for the first time," Roman Martov said. "They will include nearly 30 nations of the Asia-Pacific Region. The Russian crews of a group of ships will be patrolling the area of the exercise and will be conducting a joint operation to detect and free the ship seized by a simulated terrorist group."
After freeing the ship, a joint unit would escort it to a port, Martov said.
The Admiral Vinogradov anti-submarine destroyer, the Fotiy Krylov salvage tug and the Irkut tanker will be among the Pacific Fleet ships taking part in the 2016 ADMM-PLUS naval exercise.
Russian sailors plan to visit ports of Singapore and Brunei within the framework of the naval drill.
