Russia, NATO plan to hold drills in Black Sea this fall

Russia and NATO are going to hold military drills in the Black Sea, Russia's envoy to NATO Alexander Grushko said.

"To speak about the largest exercise under the aegis of the NATO-Russia Council, they are scheduled for this autumn. They will take place in the Black Sea as part of the so-called Cooperative Airspace Initiative," Grushko told a briefing on Tuesday.

A system "that allows to detect aircraft that do not respond to commands from the ground and that are suspected of being held by terrorists" has been created within the NRC earlier, he said.

"This system really helps to protect us from air terrorist threats," Grushko said.
