Large landing ships (BDK) "Orsk" and "Saratov" performed exercises to destroy mock-ups of floating sea mines in the Black Sea, protecting the Crimea. Writes about this "Interfax" with reference to the Black Sea Fleet of Russia.

"During the event, the crews of the BDK worked out actions to cover the conditional landing of the amphibious assault on the plav with the execution of firing from artillery installations at sea and air targets," the report says.

A ship's target shield was used as a sea target, and an amphibious aircraft was used as a means of air attack of a conditional enemy. At the time of the shooting, the corresponding area of the Black Sea was closed for the passage of civilian vessels.

The agency notes that the maneuvers of the Russian military are taking place against the background of the Sea Breeze 2021 exercises organized by the United States in the Black Sea.

In June, The Drive reported that the American destroyer Ross of the Arleigh Burke type "teleported" from the port of Odessa to the coast of Crimea on the night of June 30. The publication noted that the data of the MarineTraffic and Vessel Finder websites that track the movements of ships showed that for some time the destroyer was at a distance of about nine kilometers from the coast of the peninsula, while surveillance cameras installed in the Ukrainian port demonstrate that Ross did not leave Odessa. The Russian side was accused of distorting the data of MarineTraffic and VesselFinder in The Drive.
