The Russian Black Sea Fleet will hold drills on August 11-13 to counter underwater saboteurs, the Defense Ministry’s press office said on Thursday.

 

“Assignments will be accomplished to repel an attack by underwater saboteurs from the sea at the Black Sea Fleet’s base,” the ministry said in a statement obtained by TASS.

 

The exercises will be held under the command of Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Korolyov.
