The ships of the Pacific Fleet will take part in the Russian-Chinese exercises
Today, a detachment of ships of the Pacific Fleet, led by the guards missile cruiser Varyag, went to sea for training combat missions, said the head of the information support department of the Air Defense Ministry's press service in Vladivostok, Captain 1st Rank Roman Martov to RIA PrimaMedia.
Crews of the detachment will work out joint maneuvering, landing helicopters on the ship, carrying out search and rescue operations, and also conduct artillery firing at air and sea targets.
In mid-May, Russian ships will set a course for Shanghai, where they will take part in a large-scale exercise with the Chinese People's Liberation Army's Navy "Sea Interaction - 2014", which will be held in the South China Sea. This is the third time that such regular maneuvers have been conducted by the Russian and Chinese fleets. They are aimed at strengthening practical cooperation between the two countries and countering various threats at sea.
The last time such exercises took place in July 2013, in the Sea of Japan. Then about 20 ships and vessels from both sides took part in them.
