In St. Petersburg, training took place with the marines, who are undergoing a training cycle at the Marine Corps Training Center of the Joint Training Center of the Navy to serve as part of anti-terror groups on Russian warships performing the tasks of the naval presence in the World Ocean.

The training plan provided for the Marines to practice close combat tactics in the interior of a surface ship in the event of a hostage taking by pirates. The servicemen honed their interaction as part of tactical groups during the inspection operation, detection of a simulated enemy, conducting a battle and releasing a hostage. Under the strict supervision of the instructors of the Training Center, the marines in practice studied the features of the use of small arms, grenades, smoke bombs, as well as elements of hand-to-hand combat in the limited space of the internal premises (compartments, corridors, vestibules) of ships and vessels of the Navy.

In the course of airborne training, the servicemen studied the rules for laying the D-6 airborne parachute system, which is an integral element of training anti-terrorist group fighters for naval ships. This is due to the fact that a subunit for countering pirate tasks can be delivered to a ship or to a designated coastal area from the air by landing.

More than 100 servicemen of the Marine Corps of the Northern, Pacific, Baltic Fleets and the Caspian Flotilla arrived in St. Petersburg to undergo training under a special program, which includes the study of the device, technical equipment and weapons of Russian warships of all ranks and classes. During the training cycle, the Marine Corps study International Maritime Law, practice practical actions on ships in conducting all types of security and defense, learn the tactics of actions as part of inspection teams and learn various methods of boarding ships when solving anti-piracy problems.

In accordance with the instructions of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov, the experience gained in the course of hostilities against terrorists on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic was introduced into the practice of training marines.

The training program includes accumulated practical experience: for a number of years now, marines in anti-terror groups have been on board each warship or support vessel of the Russian Navy, performing tasks at a distance from their permanent bases. The marines who arrived at the Joint Training Center of the Russian Navy, in the course of systematic exercises, acquire practical knowledge of a level that allows them to not feel like newcomers on the decks of ships.
