A joint Russian-Chinese naval exercise “Maritime Interaction-2021” is being held in the Sea of Japan from October 14 to 17. The Russian Navy is represented on it by warships and support vessels of the Pacific Fleet: the large anti-submarine ship “Admiral Panteleev”, the corvettes of the project 20380 “Hero of the Russian Federation Aldar Tsydenzhapov” and “Loud”, two base minesweepers, a submarine of project 877 “Ust- Bolsheretsk “, as well as a missile boat and a rescue tug.
From the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) naval forces, the destroyers Kun Ming and Nan Chang, the corvettes Bin Zhou and Liu Zhou, as well as a diesel submarine, an integrated supply ship and a rescue vessel are involved. On the eve of a detachment of Chinese ships arrived in the anchorage area in the water area of the Peter the Great Gulf.
In addition to the naval component, 12 planes and helicopters of the naval aviation of the Pacific Fleet and the PLA navy are involved in the Russian-Chinese exercise.
In the course of practical actions, the crews of the ships of the two countries will work out joint tactical maneuvering, mine countermeasures for detachments, conduct artillery fire at sea targets, search for and block a mock enemy submarine in the designated area.
For the first time, naval maneuvers with the participation of the fleets of the Russian Federation and the PRC took place in August 2005 in the Yellow Sea. Then they were part of the large-scale military exercises Peace Mission 2005, organized under the auspices of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). Since 2012, outside the SCO framework, the annual specialized naval exercises “Maritime Interaction” have been held, aimed at strengthening the combat capability of Russia and China to jointly counter threats at sea.
In 2020, the Maritime Interaction exercise was not conducted due to the restrictive measures in force in connection with the novel coronavirus pandemic.
