TASS informs about this with reference to the press service of the Black Sea Fleet.

According to the scenario of the exercises, two high-speed boats with a group of unknown persons were found, which were heading towards the base of the Black Sea Fleet ships.

“During the exercise, the anti-sabotage boat Grachonok and the patrol boat Raptor stepped in to intercept targets,” it was reported.

In response to warning shots, the conditional saboteurs opened fire and split into two groups. 

It is noted that anti-sabotage boats "intercepted and destroyed" both boats. After that, the combat swimmers set out to search for conditional saboteurs.

"For the purpose of preventive actions, the ships of the Black Sea Fleet, including the frigate" Admiral Makarov "and the sea minesweeper" Ivan Golubets ", carried out conditional grenade throwing, and also performed turning of the screws to prevent mining of the underwater part of the ships," the Black Sea Fleet said.

Earlier, the online newspaper "Novy Sevastopol" reported that the artillery units of the army corps of the Black Sea Fleet conducted live firing from multiple launch rocket systems at the Opuk interspecific range in Crimea.
