Taking part in the exercises will be two ships of Russia's Baltic Fleet - the big landing ship Kaliningrad and destroyer Nastoichivy. Before the start of the exercises both ships will call at the port of Gdynia in Poland for instruction.

About 50 European and U.S. warships will take part in the exercises, the press release says. Their main tasks are to practice joint maneuvering and interaction of naval ships and search and rescue actions.
