MURMANSK, June 30. /TASS/. The Alexander Otrakovsky large landing ship of the Russian Northern Fleet returned to its base in Severomorsk on Thursday, having set a record in the duration of the voyage that began in late November 2014, the fleet’s press service told reporters on Thursday.
"The Alexander Otrakovsky large landing ship’s cruise has become the longest in the Northern Fleet’s modern history voyage of a surface ship far away from the permanent base", the press service said.
The ship’s voyage began on November 20, 2014. The Alexander Otrakovsky vessel was part of the Russian Navy’s permanent task force in the Mediterranean, has visited Syria’s Tartus port and took part in the Russian-Chinese Joint Sea 2015 manoeuvers. The Russian large landing ship has covered a total of about 65,000 nautical miles.
