A group of ships of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet comprising the Moskva missile cruiser, the Pytlivy escort ship, the Shakhtyor rescue tug and the Ivan Bubnov tanker has entered the eastern part of the Atlantic for an exercise, Black Sea Fleet spokesman Captain 1st Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev said on Thursday.

“A sea battle was one of the main exercise elements in which the Moskva crew test-fired a missile on a target simulating a surface ship. The cruise missile hit the target,” he said.
