KRONSHTADT, September 10. /TASS/. Some 60 surface ships and submarines of Russia’s Navy are currently on duty in various parts of the World Ocean, the Navy’s commander, Viktor Chirkov, said on Thursday.

"About 60 combat ships of the Russian Navy are simultaneously on duty in the near and remote areas," Chirkov said after the ceremony of unveiling a monument to Russian fleet commander Fyodor Ushakov in Kronshtadt.

"Among them there are ships organic to the permanent task group in the Mediterranean and those performing combat training missions in the Pacific and Northern fleets, in the Arctic and many areas of the world ocean," Chirkov said.

"This amount is well-justified. It is necessary to ensure the fleet should cope with its task of ensuring the stability and security of national interests," he said.
