MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Southern Military District hosts the final two-day stage of the August 25-31 inspections, the ministry noted.

“Groupings of various strike forces of the Black Sea Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla will hold a series of maneuvers in the waters of the Black Sea and the Caspian to work out tasks of defeating simulated enemy ships, suppressing attempts to lift the Kerch Strait blockade, one of the gas-condensate fields, and the release of a coastguard ship captured by terrorists,” the press service said.

The troops will also practice loading on large landing ships and deploying on unequipped coastlines, the ministry added.
