Nearly 100 soldiers are participating in international survival at sea training exercises organised by Lithuania in the Lithuania's territorial waters.

During the training, pilots, on-board technicians, military medical personnel will train how to escape from the aircraft after an emergency landing on water.

The first training of this kind was held in Denmark in 1999 by a joint Baltic-Danish project.

Since 2004, the exercises in the Baltic countries are organised independently without the Danish support.
