    A group of Russian warships practiced air defense and ship combat in the Indian Ocean.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A group of Russian Pacific Fleet warships has taken their course back to the Pacific Ocean after holding anti-air defense exercises in the Indian Ocean, the Russian Defense Ministry said Tuesday.

    “While completing tasks in military service, the ships’ crews developed skills in air defense, trained in subunits in anti-terrorist drills, ship combat training, and developed activities in ship survival, as well as taking on provisions at sea,” the ministry said in a statement.

    The ships operated in the Indian Ocean December 24-26, after which they took on supplies of water and food at Oman’s Port of Salalah and began their course back to their Naval base, the ministry said.
