A few days before going on a voyage, the crews of ships and vessels practiced the coherence of joint actions in the Barents Sea. Communications exercise was held with the sailors, as well as a number of exercises on combat service support, assistance to ship in distress. In addition, the crews of ships and vessels have practiced the tasks of the anti-aircraft, anti-submarine and anti-sabotage defence of the detachment during the passage by sea and in the unprotected roadstead.
