MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. Warships, boats and support vessels of the Russian Black Sea Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla have left their permanent bases for dispersal areas in the waters of the Black Sea and Caspian Sea within the framework of a surprise combat readiness inspection, the Russian Defense Ministry’s press office reported on Friday.
"More than 15 warships of the Black Sea Fleet have put to sea to fulfill the snap check tasks within naval battle groups, anti-submarine strike groups, mine-sweeping groups and detachments of assault landing ships," the statement says.
