A team of diving specialists of the Northern Fleet arrived in Crimea today to continue training at the training base of the oldest school of Russian divers in Sevastopol. For several years there has been Depth professional skill contest of the International Army Games, says press center of RF Defence Ministry.
All divers have already passed the first stage of preparation for the inter-naval competition in the Northern Fleet.
