    Russia's anti-submarine destroyer, the Vice-Admiral Kulakov, performed anti-aircraft drills on its way to the English Channel, the Russian Defense Ministry’s Northern Fleet spokesman said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The destroyer’s crew also drilled speeding through a sea lane with intensive ship traffic and tested the vessel’s survivability at high sea.

    The Russian warship sailed into the North Sea earlier today, having set out on its long-haul mission last Friday. It has covered over 1,000 nautical miles.

    "Gunners aboard the warship practiced fending off aircraft attacks from various altitudes with the help of anti-aircraft defense systems," Vadim Serga said.
