Earlier in March, the Russian Pacific Fleet formed two new anti-submarine warfare strike groups, with the vessels to be tasked with helping protect the Russian Far East region’s maritime communications, patrolling the areas assigned to them, and taking part in missions abroad.

About 30 warships and vessels of the Russian Pacific Fleet have left port to embark upon tactical exercises in the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk, according to the fleet's spokesman Nikolai Voskresensky.
In accordance with the combat training plan, under the guidance of general commanding officers, personnel will have to show their practical combat mission skills in dozens of scenarios, with task force readiness evaluated in maneuvers as part of tactical groups, according to the spokesman.
According to the drill plan, up to 15 warships and boats, 12 support vessels, and some 20 planes and helicopters are involved in the exercises in the waters of the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk.
