“Missile fire on surface targets located at the sea range to the southwest of Sevastopol was delivered by the Bastion cutting-edge mobile coastal defense missile system,” the ministry said.
“Simultaneously with the missile men, the training targets… came under a missile and bombing raid by four Su-24 [NATO reporting name: Fencer] aircraft of the Black Sea Fleet’s naval aviation,” it said.
According to objective control data, all missile and bomb strikes hit the targets, the ministry said, adding that the military exercises involved 15 vessels, over 10 aircraft and helicopters and coastal missile units.
Violent anti-government protests, which started in Ukraine in November 2013 when the country’s then-president suspended the signing of an association agreement with the European Union to study the deal more thoroughly, resulted in a coup in February 2014.
Crimea refused to recognize the coup-imposed authorities in Kiev and seceded from Ukraine to reunify with Russia in mid-March 2014 after some 60 years as part of Ukraine.
