KALININGRAD, September 6. /TASS/. The Yaroslav Mudry frigate of the Russian Baltic Fleet has left the port of Salalah in Oman after a business call and headed for the Gulf of Aden to continue the anti-piracy mission, the Baltic Fleet spokesman Roman Martov said on Tuesday.
"During the stay at Salalah port, the Russian warship made a refueling, replenished the supplies of fresh water and food for the continuation of the ocean voyage," Martov said.
The fleet representative said that upon arrival in the Gulf of Aden, the Yaroslav Mudry patrol boat crew would continue a mission to ensure security of civilian shipping.
The patrol boat left the main naval base of the Baltic Fleet on June 1. Since early August, the Yaroslav Mudry frigate has been on an anti-piracy mission in that area of the Indian Ocean. The ship carries a Marine Corps unit trained in anti-piracy operations.
The Russian warship was involved in an incident with the US guided missile destroyer USS Gravely (Arleigh Burke-class), which moved dangerously close to the Russian warship in the eastern Mediterranean on June 17. The Russian Defense Ministry qualified the US warship crew’s actions as unprofessional.
The Yaroslav Mudry is a Project 1154 Neustrashimiy-class frigate displacing about 4,200 tons, with a speed of about 30 knots.
