Russia's advanced S-400 Triumf missile system destroyed practice targets and the Novorossiysk submarine carried out a cruise missile training launch at the Kavkaz-2016 exercises, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported Friday.

OPUK RANGE (Crimea) (Sputnik) – The announcer noted the system's efficiency in combating a variety of modern air attacks under jamming and adverse weather conditions.

"Pay attention to the monitors: the advanced S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft missile system is dealing a blow to the 'Southern' aircraft," the correspondent quoted the announcer as saying at the drills.

"You are observing on monitors a cruise missile launch from the Novorossiysk submarine at the 'Northern' main landing forces' naval formation. The target has been struck," the announcer added.

It was announced at the end of the drills that a self-sufficient group of forces capable of repelling an attempt to capture the Crimean peninsula has been formed in the region.
