“A detachment of the Baltic Fleet’s ships consisting of the Yaroslav the Wise patrol ship, the Yelnya tanker, and the Victor Koneckiy sea tugboat arrived in the designated area of the Arabian Sea to conduct a joint exercise with the Kharusame destroyer. It is worth noting that this exercise between the ships of the Baltic Fleet and the ships of the naval self-defense forces of Japan will be held for the first time,” said the representative of the Baltic Fleet, RIA Novosti reports.
According to the plan, a conference will be held in the Khusame destroyer training area during which episode details, information exchange and security issues will be discussed, after which the ships of both countries will conduct maneuvers in communication, signal exchange and tactical maneuvering, including at night days.
The active phase will take place on January 21, in one of the areas of the Arabian Sea, the ships participating in the maneuvers will carry out episodes of communication, search and release of the ship that was conditionally captured by the “pirates” and the episode of landing on the decks of the ships.
