The Russian Navy has conducted a series of exercises involving simulated nuclear attacks with chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) warfare in the Indian Ocean.
During the exercise, two Russian warships, the Moskva guided-missile cruiser and the Pyotr Veliky nuclear-powered guided-missile cruiser, conducted simulated attacks and rescue missions after a nuclear explosion, according to rianovosti.
The exercise involved a nuclear attack with a yield of about 200kt at a distance of around 15 miles from the warships.
Russian Northern Fleet CBR specialist Alexander Buichikov said both ships were hermetically sealed and completely impervious to nuclear or chemical attack.
