MOSCOW, August 11. /TASS/. The Russian Black Sea Fleet will hold drills on August 11-13 to counter underwater saboteurs, the Defense Ministry’s press office said on Thursday.
"Assignments will be accomplished to repel an attack by underwater saboteurs from the sea at the Black Sea Fleet’s base," the ministry said in a statement obtained by TASS.
The exercises will be held under the command of Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Korolyov.
The maneuvers that are part of the program for preparing the Caucasus-2016 exercises will involve over a dozen warships and support vessels, as well as Mil Mi-8 and Kamov Ka-27PS helicopters.
As the Defense Ministry’s press office said, sailors will also practice searching for and removing mines and will provide assistance to a notionally distressed ship whose role will be performed by the small missile ship Mirazh.
"The fleet’s hydrographical service will practice a set of measures to deploy a base of maneuverable navigation reference points and mobile radio navigation systems on a coastline," the press office said.
