3

The Japanese Naval Command has resumed contacts with the Russian Armed Forces following a pause in the light of Japan’s decision to join Western sanctions against Russia. The ships of the Russian Pacific Fleet and the destroyer of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defence Force, the Hamagiri, headed for the Bay of Peter the Great near Vladivostok on Tuesday morning. This was stated by Captain 1st Rank Roman Martov, a spokesman for the Russian Pacific Fleet.

“The Russian side is represented by the Admiral Panteleyev large antisubmarine ship, the Sayany rescue ship, the MB-105 towboat, and the Ka-27PS helicopter. The Japanese Naval Self-Defence Force has committed the Hamagiri destroyer that arrived in Vladivostok on Saturday,” Mr. Martov elaborated.

According to the scenario, the crews will have to eliminate fire on a distressed ship, simulate combined actions of rescue groups and rescue people from inflatable rafts.
