MOSCOW, March 27. /TASS/. About 700 artillery personnel of a separate coastal defense brigade from the Black Sea Fleet’s army corps are completing command and staff exercises at the Opuk practice range in Crimea, Fleet spokesman Vyacheslav Trukhachyov told TASS on Monday.
"The brigade’s units are planned to practice organizing sea coast defense in the areas of potential amphibious assaults and delivering counter-strikes in interaction with other formations of the army corps as part of the command and staff drills," the spokesman said.
A field camp with the required infrastructure has been set up at the practice range and the deployment of forces has been completed, he said.
The drills started on Friday with the march of a column of 100 pieces of the armor to the practice range. While on the move, the troops repelled air strikes and neutralized a sabotage and reconnaissance group of a notional enemy.
