Russian, Turkish Navies Hold Joint Drills

Russia’s Black Sea Fleet and Turkey’s Navy held joint exercises in the Black Sea, the fleet’s spokesman Vyacheslav Trukhachev said on Wednesday.
The Russian Admiral Grigorovich frigate equipped with Kalibr cruise missiles, as well as the Vice Admiral Zakharin sea trawler and the Raptor patrol vessel participated in the drill, Sputnik reported.
From the Turkish Navy, the Barbaros frigate and the Buyukada corvette participated in the joint exercises.
“As part of the drill, ships of the two countries practiced … exit from a naval base, joint maneuvering and communications, as well as repelling an attack of a small-sized high-speed target, an inspection operation, search for and rescue of a person in the water,” Trukhachev told reporters.
The exercise was held on Wednesday after the visit of the Turkish ships to Novorossiysk.
Earlier, the Admiral Grigorovich frigate participated in the operation of the Russian naval group in Syria led by the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft-carrying cruiser. Kalibr cruise missiles were launched from the warship on terrorist targets in November 2016.
