In the formations and units of the fleet, rallies were held in which representatives of the command of the Pacific Fleet, servicemen and veterans of military service took part. On the ships, in a solemn atmosphere, the Andreevskie flags, topmast flags and flags of coloring were raised.

Vice-Admiral Sergei Rekish, Acting Commander of the Pacific Fleet, congratulated the personnel of the formations of water area security ships and submarines on the beginning of the new training six months.

Speaking to his subordinates, he noted that over the past training period, ships, boats and submarines have performed almost 1,800 combat exercises, and the total time for solving tasks at sea by forces has exceeded 3 thousand days. Almost a dozen tactical groups, more than 60 ships and boats, over 20 submarine crews have been trained.

During this period, the fleet was replenished with the modernized frigate Marshal Shaposhnikov, the third corvette of the project 20380 Hero of the Russian Federation Aldar Tsydenzhapov, the newest minesweeper Yakov Balyaev, an anti-sabotage boat, and several support vessels.
