"Servicemen from the missile formation of the Kamchatka group trained firing a number of ‘enemy’ ships as part of the military exercises. After learning targets, the combat units made electronic missile strikes from the Bastion and Rubezh anti-ship missile systems on a landing "enemy" unit located 100 km away," Matveev reported.
After that, the servicemen changed their firing position with utmost stealth so that the "attackers" did not find the missile systems.

Over 600 soldiers and over 50 vehicles and special equipment units were involved in the military exercise.
