The joint detachment of Black Sea fleet left the bases in Sevastopol and Novorossiysk to participate in the exercise. The drills were managed by Counter Admiral Anatoliy Lipinskiy, the commander of Novorossiysk military base.
Detachment of 10 ships successfully trained landing the marines at the unequipped coast of Abkhazia in the framework of combat training in 2010, the source shared.
He highlighted that holding the drills had been agreed with the government of Abkhazia, and the coastal units of Abkhazian army actively interacted.
He added the exercise wasn't left unnoticed by NATO, and John Hall, the guided missile ship of the U.S. navy, was in that region of the Black Sea.
According to the official version, the American ship was conducting a drill with coastal ships of Georgia.
"Yet the true aim of staying of the American ship in the Black Sea wasn't training Georgian-American cooperation in the sea, but monitoring the exercise in the Black Sea," the source explained.
