MOSCOW, August 31 (Itar-Tass) - A search and rescue service of the Russian Navy will hold joint tactical exercises with NATO in Poland in 2014, Captain 1st Rank Damir Shaikhutdinov, the head of the Russian Navy search and rescue service, said.
The Dynamic Monarch rescue exercise held on NATO submarines has been held every three years since Russia singed a relevant agreement with NATO.
Shaikhutdinov said in an interview with the Ekho Moskvy radio station that the experience of previous exercises had made it clear that NATO submarines were suitable for drilling Russian Navy rescue operations.
During the exercises, the crews carry out practical operations to save sailors from submarines lying on the seabed.
