Wednesday, June 16, a joint force of Russian marines from the 336th Naval Infantry Brigade and British commandos from the 4th Assault Squadron Royal Marines took part in an exercise evacuating 65 Danish civilians from an area close to the RDN Weaponry School at Zealand's Point (Sjśllands Odde).

The 65 "civilians", all regular members of the Danish Home Guard, should this day act as Danish embassy staff members in urgent need of a safe transfer out of a threatened area.

The official name for this type of exercise is NEO (Non-Combatant Evacuation Exercise), which indicates the evacuation of personnel from a threatened area, but not a warzone.

The evacuation and landing operation was commanded from the Royal Navy's newest Commando Assault and Command and Control ship HMS BULWARK and the Russian large landing ship KALININGRAD.
