MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia’s Black Sea fleet is holding combat readiness exercises in Crimea and in the Black Sea with coastal and naval units being put on high alert, the press service of the Southern Military District said Wednesday.

“The exercises will test the ability of coastal units to operate at their permanent deployment areas in conditions of high alert, while the warships are being redeployed to maritime training ranges,” the press service said in a statement.

The current drills will continue for several days within the limits of the Black Sea Fleet’s training ranges in and around the Crimean peninsula, according to the statement.

The Sea Breeze war games are annual multinational drills that train maritime, air defense, anti-submarine, and search and rescue operations, with the aim to strengthen cooperation among NATO allies so as to ensure stability in the Black Sea region.
