"The closing ceremony of the Komodo-2014 exercise was held on the Indonesian island of Natuna on April 3. After completing the exercise the squadron of POF ships consisting of the anti-submarine warfare ship "Marshal Shaposhnikov," tanker "Irkut" and the rescue boat "Alatau" led by the Primorsky mixed-forces unit's deputy commander, Rear Admiral Vladimir Dmitriyev, continued military service in the Pacific Ocean," Martov said.
At the final phase of the exercise, Russian army medics based at a field hospital deployed on the island of Sobangmovan, were actively involved in all episodes of training for the medics from multi-national forces, and conducted a surgery, the spokesman said.
In the surgical unit, the Russian naval medics, along with Indonesian marine corps medics, jointly conducted a surgery needed for an island resident, the officer said.
