RONIS 2016 operation

On 29 June, 2016 the State Border Guard organised large scale annual international operational-tactical training "RONIS 2016" in the Baltic Sea, which took place within the framework of the Action Plan 2016 of the Latvian Presidency of the Baltic Sea Region Border Control Cooperation Forum (BSRBCC).

The main task of the training was to test theoretical and practical knowledge of the vessels crew.

The training brought together the State Border Guard, the vessels of the Estonian, Lithuanian, Finnish and Polish cooperation authorities and a helicopter of the State Border Guard Aviation Board.

This training gave opportunity to develop cooperation between the vessels, to exchange information between the cooperation authorities, as well as to develop common procedures for vessel inspections at sea, to work in a Joint Inspection Group.

The training culminated in the open door day during which all interested parties were able to see the vessels of the State Border Guard as well as forces and vessels of the Lithuanian, Estonian, Polish and Finnish cooperation institutions.
