MOSCOW, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. A squadron of Russia’s Pacific Fleet ships will call at the Singapore Strait on March 28 to take part in the Komodo multilateral naval exercise under the command of Indonesia, Eastern Military District spokesman, Captain First Rank Roman Martov says.

“The coastal part of the drills will take place in Indonesia’s port of Batam, where servicemen from sixteen countries will coordinate their actions at sea and at land. The active phase of the manoeuvres will be held in the southern part of the South China Sea on April 1-2,” Martov told Itar-Tass on Thursday, adding that multinational forces would master search and rescue operations at sea and hold communications training.

“Auxiliary ships of the Pacific Fleet will be engaged in the tugging of a broken ship. The training in providing assistance to population in liquidating tsunami effects ashore will conclude the exercise, engaging units of naval infantry from Russia’s Pacific Fleet,” he said.

Moreover, Russia’s Pacific Fleet ships plan to hold helicopter drills with their partners from the Asia-Pacific Region.

The squadron of Russian ships, including the Marshal Shaposhnikov anti-submarine destroyer, the Irkut tanker and the Alatau service ship, left Vladivostok in Russia’s Far East in mid-March.
