Russian warships in E Med counter-piracy drill

Russian warships deployed in the East Mediterranean have carried out an anti-piracy drill, which included an exercise to retake a captured ship with the help of a commando unit.

The warships are from Russia’s Black Sea, Baltic and Arctic Naval Fleets.

In February, some of them will go to the Gulf of Aden to join the international counter-piracy patrol off the Horn of Africa.
