In total, three dozen countries will take part in the naval maneuvers. This was announced on Thursday December 10 in the press service of the fleet.


The exercises will be held near the Pakistani city of Karachi, the initiators of the maneuvers were the naval forces of Pakistan. Of the 30 participating countries, combat ships will send 10 to the region of maneuvers, the rest will send official observers. Among the active participants, in addition to Russia, are the USA, China, Great Britain, Malaysia, Japan, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Turkey and Indonesia.

The Russian Black Sea Fleet will send a frigate, a rescue tug, a patrol vessel, a sea-based helicopter, a Marine Corps detachment and a demining team to the exercise area.

The main objectives of the AMAN-2021 naval maneuvers will be to practice joint efforts in patrolling the waters and countering pirates, military cooperation between the fleets of the participating countries in the interests of safe navigation and the exchange of experience between the naval forces of different countries.

The last time the vessels of the Russian Navy took part in joint exercises with the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance was in 2011, when the Bold Monarch naval maneuvers were held off the coast of Spain.

    The exercises, Pakistani, were invited by the Russian Federation, and SOME NATO member countries. There is nothing in common.

      Well, we must distort it.
      First, the ships of the Russian Federation, and NATO, again, ships. Let the vessels stand under the author's bunk.

      You are all right, but there is no need to get excited about this.)
      A large explanatory dictionary provides the following description: a ship is a large seagoing vessel or a naval vessel of any class. A ship is a floating structure intended for transport, commercial and military purposes, for scientific research, etc.

      That is, the word ship is a generalizing word for both ships and ships themselves.

      And by the way ... tell me: Icebreaker, is it a ship, or a ship?

      And you are still flirting) And here, it is described, that rare case when the interests of both Russia and the countries, members of NATO, and other countries coincide. Pirates are a common enemy.

        The title is clearly a cross-feed.
        And the text of the article, yes, good. Though anonymous

          As I understand it, the headings here are adjusted for demand. To artificially arouse interest, therefore, unfortunately, this is already the norm for all media today.

      Against the reptilians, it's obvious.
      They interfere with the washing of boots in the ocean there.
