At the Nagvalou Training Range, the personnel of the Southern Military District (SMD) in Abkhazia and servicemen of the Abkhaz Ministry of Defence (MoD) have repulsed the conditional attack of the Marine Corps assault on the Black Sea coast.

The training defence of the coastline was conducted both from the surface and from the air.
