VLADIVOSTOK, December 22. /TASS/. A search and rescue ship of the Russian Pacific Fleet, The Sayany, has completed a tour of duty to the Mediterranean and is heading for Russia's main naval base in the Black Sea area, Sevastopol, as part of what the Russian Navy officials call 'an inter-fleet transition'.
In Sevastopol, the ship will undergo repairs at one of the local repair yards, the Pacific Fleet official spokesman, Roman Martov said on Tuesday.
"For the past several months, the ship performed the tasks connected with naval presence and demonstration of the Russian flag in the Pacific and Indian Oceans and in the Mediterranean," he said. "The Sayany's crew called into the ports of La Valletta (Malta), Salalah (Oman) and Changi (Singapore).
The ship that is equipped with a unique deepwater decent capsule AS-28 left the main base of the Pacific Fleet in Vladivostok under the command of Captain 1st Rank Lev Glushchenko on July 17.
At the end of August, it passed the Suez Canal and entered the Mediterranean Sea. It joined an antisubmarine exercise near Sevastopol in September. After that it returned to the Mediterranean for emergency assistance services to the Russian ships on combat duty there.
Roman Martov indicated that the Pacific Fleet's search and rescue ships have a considerable experience of rescue operations, including the ones that involved submersible robotics and deep sea diving suits.
