According to the Russian military, the readiness of the air defense forces on duty was checked.

"During the inspection, the aircraft performed the task both at the maximum distance from the radar detection zones, and at ultra-low altitudes, using the terrain for covering, which significantly complicated the task for the air defense forces and means. Combat crews of the S-400 Triumph and Pantsir complexes made detection and electronic launches (without actual firing) at control targets, " the press service of the Black Sea Fleet said in a statement.

The Russian military in the Black Sea is monitoring the ships of NATO and other countries at the Sea Breeze exercise, the National Defense Control Center of the Russian Federation reported on June 28.

According to the US 6th Operational Fleet, during the exercises, combat operations at sea, on land and in the air, including amphibious landings, anti-submarine and anti-aircraft warfare, will be practiced.
