Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

The exercise is carried out by the frigate as a part of the permanent group of ships that are allocated to the Mediterranean Sea.

During the exercise, the mock enemy aircraft relayed information regarding the location of the frigate and headed for an airstrike using guided missiles on the target.

The weapons control system of the ship electronically simulated the mock enemy with the specified characteristics.

The crew of the combat information post identified and classified the target, and the approaching ‘plane’ was then destroyed by the air defence crews before it entered the target range.

The enemy target was destroyed by electronic launches of anti-aircraft missiles, which prevented it from striking the ship.

Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation stated that the training was carried out “according to the plan for performing special tasks by the navy group in the far sea zone”.

The Indian Navy reportedly took part in exercises with Russia on 4-5 September.

In July, the Russian Navy took delivery of a new generation of hypersonic nuclear strike weapons and underwater nuclear drones.

According to the Ministry of Defence (MOD), these weapons are undergoing the final phase of testing.

During the same month, the Russian Navy accepted its newest Admiral Gorshkov-class of Project 22350 frigate, Admiral Kasatonov. The new frigates feature stealth capabilities and carry high-precision weapons. They are being built by Severnaya Verf (United Shipbuilding Corporation).
