MOSCOW, July 2 (Itar-Tass) – A new memorable date commemorating Day of Russian Fleet’s Victory in the 1770 Battle of Chesma will be celebrated in Russia on July 7 under a law approved by the Russian Federation Council , the upper chamber of the Russian Federal Assembly (parliament).
A Russian squadron defeated Turkish warships in the Chesma Bay on the western coast of modern Turkey, then the territory of the Ottoman Empire, on July 7 two hundred forty two years ago.
“The Battle of Chesma that took place on July 7, 1770 enabled the Russian state to establish its permanent naval presence in the Mediterranean, a factor that played a vital role in concluding the 1774 Kucuk – Kaynarca peace treaty,” a source at the Russian Federation Council said.
The bill is approved by the Russian State Duma and supported by Russian government.
