The Russian Black Sea Fleet took part in naval drills in Sevastopol, Crimea, on Thursday to master skills in countering a potential attack launched by underwater saboteurs. More than 10 ships and support vessels as well as Mi-8 and Ka-27PS helicopters took part in the drills. Marines practiced search and sweep operations for mines, assisted stricken missile ship the 'Mirazh' and deployed a mobile base for radio navigation systems.
