A detachment of ships from the Russian Pacific Fleet embarked on a lengthy campaign from Vladivostok, Russia, a few days before the start of the new year.

According to Levan Dzhagaryan, the Russian Ambassador to Tehran, the major goal of the drills is to perform steps to protect the safety of international shipping and the fight against sea pirates, both of which are now underway.

As he stated in an interview with the Russian news agency RIA Novosti, joint drills will take place in the Persian Gulf region.
