VLADIVOSTOK, November 22 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Pacific Fleet warships launched the convoy of four merchant vessels under the flags of various countries in the Gulf of Aden, where the pirates are rampaging. The big anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev is in the head of the convoy, the press service of the Eastern Military District said on Tuesday.
This is already sixth convoy of the Russian Pacific Fleet, which is participating in an international mission to combat piracy and to ensure security of navigation in the Gulf of Aden.
The big submarine chaser Admiral Panteleyev has already headed the Pacific Fleet convoy in 2009. The convoy was on mission off the coast of Africa. On November 30, the submarine chaser will have a scheduled visit in Djibouti, where she will stay until December 2 in order to replenish her stocks.
