At the training center of the Black Sea Fleet, rescue parties from the crews of the surface ship formation took part in survivability exercises.

The sailors on specialized simulators performed the tasks of localizing and extinguishing a conditional volumetric fire in the ship’s compartments, worked out the sealing of holes in the hull, and pumped out the incoming sea water. In order to improve the skills of using fire extinguishing equipment, the servicemen sealed the emergency compartment using special heat-resistant equipment designed to fight fire.

Damage control exercises are mandatory for the crews of surface ships and are carried out as part of routine combat training.

They were attended by the rescue parties of the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet of the Guards Order of Nakhimov, the missile cruiser Moskva, the frigates Admiral Grigorovich and Admiral Essen, the patrol ships Pytlivy and Ladny.
