On December 1, the PASSEX type joint exercises took place in the Black Sea area with the participation of the Pryluky patrol boat of the Ukrainian Navy and the French Navy Corvette “Commandant Birot”.

During joint offshore maneuvers, ships crews have completed a number of interoperability tasks in accordance with the standards of the North Atlantic Alliance. The focus was on improving the skills and actions of the ship’s crews while performing tasks in the group of ships.

— Joint exercises with NATO warships are a great experience and an opportunity to work out elements of MTP signals that allow us to develop and perform high-level compatible missions, — noted Lieutenant Commander Volodymyr Uglinskyi.

Cadets of the Navy Academy have also taken part in the event. They had had the opportunity to gain important experience in cooperation with a foreign crew during sea exercise.
