MOSCOW, December 3. /TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry has not held and is not planning to conduct military drills in Crimea involving combat dolphins and there is no need in this, official spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said on Wednesday.
Media reports said earlier on Wednesday that in November, Russia’s Black Sea Fleet held the first exercises with combat dolphins since Crimea rejoined Russia in March.
“There have been and there are no trainings or exercises with dolphins,” Konashenkov said, stressing that there is also no need in training dolphins for military purposes.
“The bases of the Black Sea Fleet are safely protected by special technical means of anti-sabotage forces, that’s why there is no need in using exotic ways of safeguarding adjacent waters,” Konashenkov said.
