Russia: Naval parade marks end of Russian-Chinese 'Joint Sea' drills

Russian Federation, Vladivostok
August 28, 2015 at 10:03 GMT +00:00 · Published

A parade of ships from Russia's Pacific Fleet Russia and the Chinese Navy took place off the coast of Vladivostok on Friday to mark the end of the Joint Sea 2015 exercises. Vessels involved in the parade include Russia's destroyer Marshal Shaposhnikov and Sovremenny-class destroyer as well as China's Qiandaohu-class replenishment ship and Luzhou class destroyer. Two Russian helicopters also took part - a Kamov KA-27 and a Mil Mi-14.

The drills started last week and involved 22 ships from Russia and China, alongside 20 aircraft and helicopters that were deployed to the Gulf of Peter in the Sea of Japan.

The Joint Sea 2015 programme involved live-fire exercises both from land and at sea, as well as air striking drills situated above and below sea-level. It culminated in a joint landing operation involving both sea and airborne troops on the Klerk range in South Primorye.

It was the first time the two navies conducted joint manoeuvres in the Pacific after the first joint naval drills went ahead in the Mediterranean earlier in the year.
