VLADIVOSTOK, April 6. /TASS/. A naval group of Russia’s Pacific Fleet comprising the large anti-submarine warfare ship Admiral Vinogradov, the oceanic rescue vessel Fotiy Krylov and the tanker Irkut held anti-submarine and anti-terrorism drills as part of its long-distance mission launched late last month, Fleet spokesman Captain 1st Rank Roman Martov said.
"The crews of the warships also held exercises on the naval group’s air defense, conducted drills of anti-terrorism units and practiced damage control situations," the officer said.
The naval group of Russia’s Pacific Fleet departed from the Vladivostok base in the Far East for a long-distance mission on March 28.
During the long-distance voyage, the Pacific Fleet’s naval group is scheduled to pay unofficial visits to five countries. Also, the sailors would take part in two multinational drills in the Asia-Pacific region in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
Currently, the Pacific Fleet’s lead ship, the Guards missile cruiser Varyag, is operational as part of the Russian Navy’s Mediterranean grouping.
