    Russian Navy vessels spent over 4,000 days at sea in the winter training period, Russian Navy spokesman Igor Drygalo said Saturday, citing figures from the Navy’s expanded Military Council in St. Petersburg.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian submarines spent 70 percent of their entire academic year time at sea, while Naval Aviation units amassed over 10,000 hours during the winter training period, he added.

    "The Navy surface ships’ time spent underway in the winter training period made up over 64 percent – more than 4,000 days – of the time planned for the entire academic year," Drygalo said.

    The session chaired by Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Vladimir Korolev discussed the results achieved by commanders and high-ranking officers in organizing the Russian Navy’s combat training in the winter period and analyzed the results of snap inspections.

    Korolev instructed the Navy top brass to keep up the efficiency of combat training with a focus on practical drills during planned summer training missions, Drygalo added.
