#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Russia’s Northern Fleet is conducting major interspecific tactical exercises in the Arctic. They involve about 50 ships, 120 aircraft and helicopters and 8000 military personnel.
Today naval sailors and marines have worked out the rescuing of the Dudinka seaport territory, conditionally captured by a sabotage and reconnaissance group.
The North sea warriors successfully carried out an amphibious assault on the Yenisey river and carried out an assault operation simultaneously from water, air and land.
According to the Northern Fleet press office, during the exercise, the safety ensuring issues concerning the sea communications and areas of Russia’s maritime economic activity in the water area of the Northern Sea Route will be worked out, as well as operations to block and destroy terrorists.
It is specified that the exercises will be held in the waters of the Barents and Kara seas, the Laptev sea, near the Novosibirsk islands, as well as the Frans Josef Land archipelago.
Let us remind you that last year the entire personnel – more than a thousand people – took part in the exercises of the Northern Fleet. And in 2019, near the Dudinka seaport, a tactical exercise was held on the conduct of hostilities during the amphibious assault landing on the unequipped Yenisey coast.
Earlier, we reported that military sailors were conducting excursions around the large anti-submarine ship Severomorsk.
