Part of Russia’s Pacific Fleet arrived at the Indian port of Visakhapatnam, Wednesday, to take part in the Indra 2016 Navy exercises.

According to Rear-Admiral Eduard Mikhailov, "The detachment of the Russian Pacific Fleet consisting of the major anti-submarine ship Admiral Tributs and the sea tanker Boris Butoma arrived to the main base of the Indian Naval Forces at Visakhapatnam."

The Russian ships set off from their home base of Vladivostok in October and were welcomed to Visakhapatnam by the commander of the Eastern Fleet of India, Rear Admiral B. Dasgupta.

Rear-Admiral Eduard Mikhailov added, "The drills consist of two phases: the coastal phase which began on December 14 and will end on December 18. From December 19 to 21 the drills of the maritime phase will take place. It will include battle exercises and training with the use of combat weapons."

It is at least the second time in 2016 that Russian and Indian personnel have trained together after the land phase of the Indra 2016 drills were staged near Vladivostok in September and October.
