    Russian Navy’s Northern Fleet’s press service said that rescue divers from the Northern Fleet will soon begin training to help nuclear submarine “in distress”.

    MOSCOW, April 13 (Sputnik) Russian rescue divers from the Northern Fleet will soon begin training to help nuclear submarine “in distress,” the Navy’s Northern Fleet’s press service said Monday.

    “During the training that will soon be held in the Barents Sea, military rescuers will help the crew of a nuclear submarine ‘in distress’ and practice elements of saving the crewmembers of a ship that is in a ‘disaster’ at sea,” the press service said.

    Rescue divers will operate at a depth of 40-50 meters in the Kola Bay for several days.

    On April 7, the pilots of the Northern Fleet's Su-33 (Flanker) carrier-based superiority fighters carried out exercises on target interception and air combat.

    In March, the snap inspection of the fleet's combat readiness took place. The snap inspections were also held in Russia's Western, Southern and Eastern military districts.

    According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the country intends to conduct at least 4,000 military exercises in 2015.
