With the crew of the mine defense ship 'Ivan Antonov' of the Black Sea Fleet, a training exercise was conducted on guidance of the large landing ship detachment (LLS) behind the trawls.

Before going to sea, the crew completed a set of measures to prepare the ship for battle and campaign, and the LLS air defense crews worked out an algorithm of actions to repel the air attack of a mock enemy.

During the exercise, the crew of the ship 'Ivan Antonov' completed the tasks of conducting mine reconnaissance and making a passage in the minefields of a mock enemy for a detachment of ships consisting of three LLS.

At the second stage of the exercise, the LLS crews crossed the area with a mine danger along the paved strip, after which the crews of the ship's artillery combat units conducted practical firing on mock-ups of floating mines.

The exercise was held in accordance with the plan of combat training of the Black Sea Fleet.
