Russia will hold naval drills in the Mediterranean Sea, near Syria, in the period from September 1 to September 8, the Russian Defense Ministry announced on August 30.

The defense ministry said that “the grouping will practice a set of tasks of air defense, anti-submarine and anti-sabotage warfare and also mine counter-measures support”.

The areas covered by the drills will be declared dangerous for navigation and flights in advance in order to ensure the safety of shipping and flights.
