The Prime Minister of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, Vasyl Dzharty, says that the enterprises of the Crimea (southern Ukraine) are ready to take orders for repair of ships of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation. The Head of the Crimean government said this in Sevastopol, answering journalists' questions about the importance of prolonging the Black Sea Fleet stay in Crimea until 2042.

In particular, he said: "We have the opportunity to develop our businesses that are ready today to accept orders for build combat vehicles, for creating jobs... And we have opportunities for the Russian Black Sea Fleet," UKRINFORM reported.

According to Dzharty, "Of course, it is a rise in social terms for Sevastopol today; there is the possibility of exchanging experience between Ukrainian and Russian sailors, conducting exercises and creating an efficient fighting foundation for the maintenance of peace in the Crimea and in Ukraine on the whole."

Russia also proposed Ukraine to conduct joint Russian and Ukrainian naval drills more often, Russian Navy Commander Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky said.

"[There is] a proposal to reduce periods of time between these events," Vysotsky said after parade marking Russia's Navy Day.

He said that the countries should hold naval exercise annually instead of one in a year leaded by Russian and Ukrainian fleets' commanders alternately.
