VLADIVOSTOK, September 20 (Itar-Tass) — A squadron of Russia’s Pacific Fleet ships sets sail for Japan, the United States and Canada after the end of the large-scale drills of the Eastern Military District off Kamchatka.
The squadron led by Captain First Class Sergei Zhuga includes the guided missile cruiser Varyag, the Irkut tanker and tugboat MB-66.
Russia’s ships will first call at Japan’s port of Maizuru to take part in a joint search and rescue exercise with Japan's Self Defence Force.
The next leg of the voyage is the U.S. island of Guam in the western Pacific Ocean.
On the Mariana Islands the Russian and U.S. mariners will hold the Pacific Eagle-2011 exercise.
Canada’s Vancouver is the last call port.
In early December the squadron will return to its main base in Vladivostok.
