"The live fire exercise was carried out as part of a tactical drill at a test site in the Barents Sea," Capt. 1st Rank Igor Dygalo said.
He said, in particular, the battle-cruiser had successfully engaged a mock target launched from the missile ship Rassvet.
The cruiser also repulsed a mock air attack with an onboard antiaircraft complex.
Dygalo said Pyotr Velikiy's operations in the Barents Sea were ensured by Northern Fleet warships and support vessels.
