I knew you were going to ask that.1981 was 40 years ago. Why do you keep quoting the long distant past as if it is the present.It's been done before. Remember the 1981 NATO exercise where a massive fleet traveled all the way from the U.S. to cross the GIUK gap and conducted constant flight operations coordinating 83 ships from four different nations under EMCON conditions.
I bring up the 1981 exercise because due to it being detailed in a book about the U.S. Navy and at various other sources, I know more about the details of it than later exercises, though I do know the U.S. and allied navies did conduct similar exercises several years later (thought still in the 1980s).
The severely moribund nature of the Russian military in the 1990s made it utterly pointless to conduct such exercises.
LOL most nonsense from 1981 is so remotely useless that is has also been declassified already. At any rate satellite and missile tech increases since then make 1981 as relevant as the stone age
