"The joint Russian-Chinese naval exercise Joint Sea-2015, in which the guided missile cruiser The Moskva took part, was the most important combat training event. With our Chinese counterparts we are going to go ahead with joint combat training practices," Shoigu told a conference at the Defense Ministry.
