MURMANSK, June 15. /TASS/. The Admiral Ushakov destroyer from Russia’s Northern Fleet has left for naval drills in the Barents Sea to practice overcoming mine obstacles, antiaircraft and anti-submarine defense and an artillery fight against a surface ship, Fleet Spokesman, Captain 1st Rank Vadim Serga said on Monday.
"Artillery squads will perform live firing to destroy sea-based and coastal targets, including fast-moving small-size objectives and floating sea mines, while antiaircraft missile and artillery system teams will repel air attacks from various altitudes and directions," the spokesman said.
The Admiral Ushakov destroyer entered service with the Russian Northern Fleet in the spring of 1994. The destroyer participated in two long-distance marches to the North-Eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea as part of the Northern Fleet’s naval grouping.
