Russian Baltic Fleet helicopters search for enemy submarines in drills
The crews of Ka-27 anti-submarine warfare helicopters from the Baltic Fleet’s naval aviation searched for and tracked a notional enemy’s submarines in drills, the Fleet’s press office reported on Wednesday.
“During the drills that involved the advanced corvette Boiky, the crews of Ka-27 helicopters practiced tactical methods of searching for and tracking a notional enemy’s submarines and also inter-operability with the ship’s crew in torpedo firings,” the press office said in a statement.
During the drills, the pilots of up to six deck-based helicopters made over 30 landings on the Boiky’s deck while the warship was adrift and on the move, both in the daytime and at night, the statement says.
The helicopter pilots also made flyovers of the corvette to check its radio-technical armament, air defense, communications and aircraft control systems, the press office said.
“Smooth inter-operability between the crews of the helicopters and the corvette helped successfully accomplish the assigned missions,” the press office stressed.
Russia upset over Israel’s aerial strikes on Syria, its envoy tells UNSC
Moscow opposes Israel’s aerial attack against Iranian military facilities in Syria, its Chargé d’Affaires Dmitry Polyanskiy told the United Nations Security Council in New York on Wednesday.
“Israel’s missile strikes on Syria that have intensified recently, also run counter to normalization efforts in the region. Such acts cause our utmost concern and resentment, Polyanskiy said.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry also issued a statement against the attack against over 20 Iranian and Syrian targets.
“We believe it is absolutely imperative to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria and other states in the region. So far, Israeli actions have ratcheted up tension and conflict potential of the situation around Syria, and are running counter to the efforts to normalize the situation and achieve stability and a political settlement in Syria,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry said.
Israel and Russia have an agreement to deescalate the conflict in the region, which allows the air force to strike Iranian targets in Syria, without the risk of hitting Russian forces. In spite of this agreement, Israeli aerial attacks against Iranian military targets and Iranian proxies have created tension between Jerusalem and Moscow.
