MOSCOW, August 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The Black Sea Fleet diesel-powered submarine Alrosa entered the English Channel on the way from Kronstadt to Sevastopol on Monday, spokesman for the Russian Black Sea Fleet Captain First Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev told Itar-Tass.
He recalled that Alrosa, which completed the scheduled repairs, departed from Kronstadt in the middle of August and continues an inter-fleet crossing to Sevastopol. “Our submarine escorted by the Baltic Fleet rescue tugboat SB-921, which drills its tasks in the sea crossing, entered the English Channel,” Trukhachev said.
“The Russian submarine and SB-921 are expected to meet with the Black Sea Fleet sea rescue tugboat Shakhter at the Spanish port Ceuta in early September. The rescue tugboat is escorting Alrosa to Sevastopol,” the spokesman said. He also noted that Shakhter set out in the Mediterranean Sea several days ago and began the crossing through the Strait of Malta on Monday.
“The Black Sea Fleet convoy will arrive in the Black Sea in the second half of September,” Trukhachev underlined.
