At the base of the Black Sea Fleet ships, the personnel of the anti-submarine sabotage detachment (PPDO) conduct practical exercises with the implementation of underwater descents.

During the training, servicemen will work out complexes of diving exercises both singly and as part of a group. Underwater descents are carried out at different times of the day in full diving equipment with individual breathing apparatus.

Also, PPDI fighters conduct training in the implementation of elements of underwater combat with melee weapons. When practicing with a partner, underwater combat techniques with the use of cold weapons, swimmers use a special knife model, which cannot damage the equipment. Practicing stabbing and cutting movements is carried out on special underwater dummies.
