Russian patrol ship Vasily Bykov and sea trawler Valentin Pikul, and Turkish navy corvette Burgazada and minesweeper Ak├žay took part in the drill conducted near the port of Novorossiysk, according to a release.
“During the drills, the patrol ship Vasily Bykov, the sea-going minesweeper Valentin Pikul of the Novorossiysk naval base held joint Russian-Turkish drills with the foreign corvette Burgazada and the minesweeper Akcay,” the press office said in a statement.

The statement also said the two countries’ forces worked together to simulate safe navigation of vessels out of a naval minefield.
After the drills, the Turkish warships reportedly left Russian waters.
This occured on March the 6th as part of the Turkish Navy’s Mavy Vatan-2019 exercise.
This comes not long after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan clarified speculation about Ankara’s deal with Moscow to Russian buy S-400 Triumf air defence systems, saying his government won’t cancel the deal, despite protests from Washington.
