Footage taken Wednesday shows Russian navy vessels preparing to celebrate Navy Day, which will be held on July 30. Heavy aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov can be seen taking part in a rehearsal in the Kola Bay of Murmansk alongside nuclear-powered submarines, several other ships, BTR-80 and BTR-82a amphibious armored personnel carriers. In Kronstadt, near St. Petersburg, the submarine Dmitriy Donskoy and battlecruiser Pyotr Velikiy are part of a 40-strong flotilla preparing to take part in the main celebrations in the River Neva. Similar naval parades are scheduled to take part in ports across Russia.
