VLADIVOSTOK, June 1. /TASS/. The summer training period has begun in the Russian Pacific Fleet.
The military personnel will take part in dozens of large-scale exercises and sorties in the World ocean, spokesman for Russia’s Eastern Military District Captain First Rank Roman Martov told TASS on Wednesday.
"The summer training period began with the Saint Andrew’s flag raising ceremony, hoisting the masthead flag and dressing overall on ships and in naval units. The navy men held ceremonial parades on this day during which the best servicemen were rewarded, and then the military were set tasks for the coming months of service," Martov said. "The personnel will have to display their proficiency in dozens of large-scale exercises, as well as continue to perform the tasks of combat service in the oceans."
During the winter period the military carried out about 500 gunnery drills, depth-charge throwing exercises and minelaying operations, about 3,000 thousand parachute jumps and dozens of sorties. The Pacific Fleet naval aviation performed many training and combat missions, including air patrolling over the neutral waters of the Sea of Japan, the Pacific Ocean and Arctic Ocean. The naval aviators completed more than 1,400 combat employment training missions and drills.
"In January 2016, a detachment of the Pacific Fleet ships, led by the Guards missile cruiser Varyag, returned to its home base in Vladivostok. Over three months of their long voyage, the Pacific Fleet warships visited the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean, visited four Asia-Pacific countries, and in December successfully conducted the Indra Navy 2015 joint exercise with the Indian Nay in the waters of the Bay of Bengal", Martov said.
