MURMANSK, April 4. /TASS/. A naval task force of the Russian Northern Fleet led by the Vice-Admiral Kulakov large anti-submarine warfare ship has returned to the fleet’s main base in Severomorsk after its long-distance Mediterranean and Atlantic missions, the fleet’s press office said on Monday.
The naval task force entered Kola Bay on Sunday and on April 4 the large anti-submarine warfare ship Vice-Admiral Kulakov anchored at its organic berth, the press office said.
"The distant mission of the Vice-Admiral Kulakov lasted over five months after it started on October 23, 2015," the fleet’s press office said.
The naval task force comprising the Vice-Admiral Kulakov large anti-submarine warfare ship and the support vessels - the Dubna tanker and the SB-406 rescue tug boat - was greeted by acting Commander of the Northern Fleet Vice-Admiral Nikolay Yevmenov at a ceremony in Severomorsk.
The anti-submarine warship ship held a number of exercises in the Mediterranean Sea as part of the Russian Navy’s regional grouping.
Also, the ship’s crew ensured safe navigation of merchant ships in the area.
Drills were held aboard the ship during its inter-sea passage. The latest combat training drills involved maneuvers in the Atlantic jointly with Russia’s advanced Project 11356 frigate Admiral Essen.
Overall, the Vice-Admiral Kulakov covered a distance of over 25,000 nautical miles during its distant voyage.
