According to the results of the naval competition in 2021, the Baltic Fleet took first place. In addition, the Baltic sailors won seven prizes from the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy in various types of combat training.

The servicemen who distinguished themselves in the performance of training and combat missions received state and departmental awards, valuable gifts and certificates of honor from the hands of the commander of the Baltic Fleet.

According to Vice Admiral Viktor Liina, all this became possible thanks to the hard work of all personnel and civilian personnel of the Baltic Fleet.

This year, the crews of the ships of the fleet performed 430 combat exercises, including rocket, artillery and torpedo firing, mine laying, depth bombing, and mine action. The ships have delivered more than 120 course tasks, and ship formations and tactical groups have conducted more than 30 tactical exercises of various levels. The servicemen of the fleet showed their best qualities during the SSU “West-2021”, and many of the most important episodes of the exercise, including the landing, took place in the Baltic.

The surfacing of the surface forces of the Baltic Fleet from the beginning of the year amounted to about 3 thousand days. In total, surface ships and support vessels have covered about 200 thousand nautical miles. Shock, sweep and landing ship tactical groups have been trained. Currently, several BF ships adequately solve the assigned tasks far from their native shores. The seamen of the Baltic Fleet improve their professional skills and maritime training, conscientiously fulfill their military duty, and honorably carry out the difficult service in protecting the state interests of Russia and ensuring its security.

The flight crews of the naval aviation of the fleet in 2021 amounted to more than 6.5 thousand hours, which is significantly higher than last year’s figures. In combat training activities, the Forpost and Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicles were actively used, with the help of which the actions of forces and troops were monitored during tactical exercises, reconnaissance activities and objective control over the implementation of combat exercises at sea and land ranges. In addition, the launches of unmanned aircraft during the exercise were carried out from the board of the warships of the fleet.

Since the beginning of this year, the formations and military units of the army corps of the Baltic Fleet have carried out more than 4 thousand combat training events. In addition, the personnel of the coastal troops and the army corps have performed more than 8.8 thousand parachute jumps of varying difficulty. The combat training plan for conducting tactical exercises along the coastal component was fulfilled by more than 100%.

The efforts of the Baltic Fleet will be aimed at ensuring the naval interests of the Russian Federation. Also, the Baltic sailors will continue to fulfill state tasks to ensure tests of ships under construction and repairs for the Russian Navy.
