The Russian Black Sea Fleet held joint drills with the Turkish Navy whose naval group completed its business call at the port of Novorossiysk, the Fleet’s press office reported on Friday.

“During the drills, the patrol ship Vasily Bykov, the sea-going minesweeper Valentin Pikul of the Novorossiysk naval base held joint Russian-Turkish drills with the foreign corvette Burgazada and the minesweeper Akcay,” the press office said in a statement.

The warships’ crews also practiced interaction and maneuvering in the Black Sea and the escort of a group of ships in the zone of a possible mine danger. After the drills, the Turkish warships left the Russian waters.

As was reported earlier, the corvette Burgazada and the minesweeper Akcay made a business call at the port of Novorossiysk on March 6 as part of the Turkish Navy’s Mavy Vatan-2019 national drills that envisaged visiting a foreign port.
