Russia Conducts Naval Drills in The Atlantic Ocean

Russia's Defense Ministry released footage of naval drills in The Atlantic Sea carried out by the crew of the admiral gorshkov frigate.

The Russian navy carried out artillery shelling at a sea target as part of the preparation for joint naval exercises with the South African navy and the Chinese navy.

On January 4th, Russia's President Vladimir Putin ordered the Russian military to send the frigate on a trans-ocean cruise in a show of force as tensions with the west escalate.

The admiral gorshkov frigate is armed with an anti-ship hypersonic zircon missile which can evade any western air defenses.
