VLADIVOSTOK, June 30 (Itar-Tass) — A squadron of the Pacific Fleet ships on Friday night reached the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii, where the world’s largest international maritime warfare exercise – Rimpac - will take place, the press service of the Eastern military district said.
The squadron consists of the Admiral Panteleyev submarine chaser, the Boris Butom tanker and the Foty Krylov rescue tugboat.
Russian ships will for the first time take part in Rimpac that is held biennially during June and July.

At present, 45 ships from 23 countries will participate in the exercise.
During their voyage from Vladivostok to Hawaii the Russian ships fulfilled firearms trainings and mastered anti-submarine and missile defence skills.
