20 battleships and boats, around 35 fighter aircrafts and helicopters, dozens of other military equipment units of the Russian Black Sea Fleet were used in celebrations of the Navy Day. For the first time since 1998 rockets have been fired.

Russian citizens that came to celebrate the day say, "Crimea feels like home".

The internationally recognised Ukrainian territory of Crimea was annexed by Russia in March 2014. Back then Russian masked troops invaded and occupied key Crimean locations, including Ukrainian airports and military bases, following President Putin's orders.
