Footage released by the Defense Ministry shows a mock anti-ship cruise missile being fired from a ground-based silo launcher. Once airborne, the missile heads towards the Admiral Makarov guided-missile frigate, which has been patrolling Crimea’s waters.

Laid down in 2012, the Admiral Makarov is the third frigate of Admiral Grigorovich-class ships to be based with the Black Sea Fleet at Sevastopol. The 124-meter ship is fitted with upgraded radar equipment, torpedo tubes, as well as dozens of cells for vertical-launch anti-ship and surface-to-air missiles.
