    In addition to representatives of the FSUE "Rosmorport" Astrakhan branch, employees of the Caspian Flotilla of the Navy of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the Border Directorate of the FSB of Russia for the Republic of Kalmykia and the Astrakhan Region, the Southern Directorate of Rosaeronavigatsia, the Astrakhan branch of the RSBS FSI "Southern Aviation Search Rescue Center”, representatives of other departments and companies took part in the drills.

    According to the legend of the drills to help people in distress in the Caspian Sea, a distress signal came from a vessel. Search vessels and a helicopter moved out into the area of the incident. After finding the life raft and the lifeboat, the search vessels proceeded to evacuate the crew members of the conditionally sunken ship in distress. After being successfully lifted on board, they were delivered to the island Iskustvenniy of the Volga-Caspian shipping channel.

    At the second stage of the drills, according to the legend, engine oil and fuel began to flow from the sinking vessel and appeared on the surface in the area of the incident. Specialized vessels for the elimination of emergency oil and oil products spills that arrived at the scene, taking into account weather conditions (wind directions and sea currents), promptly built a localizing order for booms and activated oil-gathering systems, with the help of which the oil-water emulsion was collected into vessel’s temporary storage tanks.
