During the exercise, Ukrainian naval units were assessed according to NATO standards. In particular, we are talking the patrol boats Slovyansk and Starobilsk, as well as the airborne assault company of the Marine Corps.

This once again demonstrated our ability to carry out common tasks according to NATO standards, "said Rear Admiral Olexiy Neizhpapa.
All warships that took part in the exercises returned to the port of Odesa. Soon they will leave for Bulgaria.
