A detachment of warships of the Russian fleet docked on Tuesday 18 October in Algeria, for a four-day stopover aimed at carrying out joint naval exercises with the Algerian counterpart. This was confirmed by the Ministry of Defense of the North African country, explaining that the maneuvers fall within the framework of "the strengthening of bilateral military cooperation between the Navy of the Algerian National People's Army and the Russian Navy".

During the stay of the Russian ships, "various cultural and sporting activities will be planned for the benefit of the crews", adds the ministry. The Turkish news agency "Anadolu" recalls that a Russian Navy minesweeper had docked in the port of Jijel in September, again to conduct joint exercises. Russian and Algerian warships had carried out joint naval maneuvers in the Mediterranean in November 2021, including various tactical and interceptive exercises. Algeria is one of Russia's most important military allies on the African continent and one of the largest customers of Russian armaments in the region.
