Russian threat capabilities against Ukraine were added to on 7 April when Moscow’s Ministry of Defence announced that more than 10 amphibious landing and artillery ships are to be transferred from the Caspian Flotilla to the Black Sea Fleet headquartered at Sevastopol in the Crimea.

Initial training activities include coastal assault and navigation in shallow and confined waterways and sea areas.
