In addition, knowledge and management skills of admirals and commanding officers were improved, as well as integration level of control agencies and their interaction with other branches. Numerous innovative ideas regarding further development of the Navy were implemented during the Adequate Reaction 2011 exercise”, pointed out VADM Yury Ilyin.
