MOSCOW, December 19. /TASS/. The Russian Black Sea Fleet’s frigate The Admiral Grigorovich has returned to its base Sevastopol from the Mediterranean, the fleet’s spokesman Vyacheslav Trukhachyov has told the media.

"The Black Sea Fleet’s newest frigate, The Admiral Grigorivich, returned to Sevastopol today after completing its mission in the Mediterranean. For six weeks the ship was part of Russia’s permanent naval task force in the Mediterranean," Trukhachev said.

He recalled that the just-ended mission was the ship’s second long voyage this year. Earlier in autumn the Admiral Grigorovich performed a variety of tasks in the Mediterranean and participated in events of the 15th public forum Russia Week on the Ionian Islands.

The Admiral Grigorivch is the head ship of project 11356, delivered to the Russian navy in March 2016. Ships of this type have a water displacement of 4,000 tonnes, speed of 30 knots and endurance of 30 days. The frigates are armed with the missile system Kalibr-NK, air defense systems Shtil-1 and Palash, 100-mm artillery system A-190, torpedoes and anti-submarine equipment.
