“Under the combat training program, the crewmen practiced repelling the attacks of air-launched cruise missiles. During the exercise, the crew of the action information center detected and classified notional targets and an air defense team performed simulated missile launches to eliminate them when they were within the engagement range,” the press office said.

Besides, the crewmen are practicing daily routine, liaison, and maneuvering in various navigation situations. The Admiral Grigorovich has been operating as part of the Russian Navy’s permanent formation deployed in the Mediterranean Sea since December 2020.
