The crew of the Baltic fleet corvette 'Stoiky' worked counter air strikes in the Mediterranean sea.

The ship conducted conditional artillery and rocket fire on mimic air and sea targets, which were set using on-board target designation systems. The firing was carried out by combat crews of batteries of artillery systems A-190, AK-630 and anti-aircraft missile system 'Redut'. The crew also worked out actions on a training alert, on the option of defending the ship from unmanned aerial vehicles of a mock enemy. The soldiers of the anti-terror units practiced in organizing the protection and defence of the corvette when parked on an unprotected roadstead and stopping an attack on a squad of high-speed small-sized targets.

A detachment of ships of the Baltic Fleet consisting of the corvette 'Stoiky', the medium sea tanker 'Kola' and the sea tug 'Yakov Grebelsky' went to sea from the permanent base of the city of Baltiysk to perform the planned tasks of a long-distance campaign on December 16, 2020.
