The Pacific Fleet announced this on its website on August 27. The sea border between Russia and the United States lies in the Bering Sea.
“The general management of the actions of the forces from the board of the Marshal Krylov measuring complex was carried out by the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov,” the message says.
The Varyag guards missile cruiser launched an anti-ship cruise missile of the Vulcan complex, and the Omsk attacked a conditional target from under the water with the Granit anti-ship missile. The missiles successfully hit targets at distances of more than 450 and more than 320 km, respectively.
The safety of the exercise was ensured by 15 warships and vessels of the Pacific Fleet, as well as naval aircraft of the fleet.
