MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Over 15 combat ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet and more than 10 vessels of the Caspian Flotilla have sailed out as part of ongoing snap combat readiness inspections, the Russian Defense Ministry’s mass communications department informs.

"In the Black Sea Fleet, in order to carry out tasks of the snap inspection, as part of naval battle groups, anti-ship strike groups, mine-sweeping groups and detachments of amphibious ships, over 15 warships came out to sea," the department said in a Friday statement.
