MOSCOW - Russian warships have embarked on a long voyage to the Black and Mediterranean seas to take part in what the Defense Ministry said would be the largest naval exercise in decades.

It said on Wednesday that ships from its Northern, Baltic, Black Sea and Pacific fleets would stage the exercise at the end of the month to test their ability to act together outside Russian waters.

"A Navy exercise on such a scale is being staged for the first time in recent decades," the ministry said, without giving other details such as how many ships would take part.

Moscow has been trying to strengthen its military presence in the Mediterranean region.
