More than 20 combat ships of the Russian Navy’s Black Sea Fleet have participated in the initial stage of the Kavkaz-2020 military drills, the Russian Defense Ministry informs.

“As part of the Kavkaz-2020 command post exercise, over 20 ships and boats of the [Black Sea] Fleet are performing tasks at sea,” the ministry said.

The first stage of the drills involves overcoming minefields and performing anti-submarine missions.

Earlier this month, the Defense Ministry informed that Russia had invited servicemen from Armenia, Belarus, China, Myanmar, Pakistan and Iran to participate in the Kavkaz-2020 military exercises. Representatives from Azerbaijan, Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Sri Lanka were planning to attend the drills as observers. Iran has been invited to take part in the navy exercises in the waters of the Black and Caspian seas.

The Kavkaz-2020 military exercises involve two stages and will last from September 21 until September 26, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling

  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
