SEVEROMORSK, January 2. /TASS/. Vessels of Russia’s Northern Fleet will make trips to the Mediterranean Sea, the Arctic region and the Atlantic Ocean in 2017, the fleet’s Commander, Vice-Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov, said.
"The crews of a number of surface ships units have begun preparations for long-distance trips to the Arctic Ocean, various areas of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Basin," he said.
