    The Russian Pacific Fleet will fire cruise missiles and practice air defense.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Pacific Fleet ship groups will hold missile firing drills in the Pacific Ocean, Eastern Military District spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov said Monday.

    "During the air defense exercises, the destroyers Moroz, Inej, and Smerch will carry out launches of Malachite cruise missiles, they will simulate low-altitude, high-speed targets of the Maritime flotilla led by the guided missile cruiser Varyag, which, in turn, will use all its firepower to strike back at a simulated enemy air attack," Martov said.
