The anti-submarine warfare ships will deploy to the sea to practice operations in a naval battle with the notional enemy’s surface ship, the press office specified.

Russia’s National Defense Control Center reported on December 14 that the French frigate Auvergne had entered the Black Sea. The Russian Black Sea Fleet’s forces were tracking the French warship’s deployments in the Black Sea, it said.

The Grisha class, Soviet designation Project 1124 Albatros, are a series of anti-submarine corvettes built by the Soviet Union between 1970 and 1990 and later by Russia and Ukraine. These ships have a limited range and are largely used only in coastal waters.

They have been equipped with a variety of ASW weapons and an SA-N-4 "Gecko" surface-to-air missile launcher. All were fitted with retractable fin stabilizers.
