MURMANSK, March 25. /TASS. The Severomorsk anti-submarine warfare destroyer has called at Namibia’s main port - Walvis Bay, the Northern Fleet’s press service said on Saturday.
"The warship’s command have paid protocol visits to Namibia’s Navy and Defense Ministry, the city’s Mayor and diplomats of the Russian embassy to that country," the press service said.
The crew will have a sightseeing tour, and Namibia’s military and navy students will come on board of the Russian warship. On Sunday, sailors of the two countries will compete in volleyball and tug of war.
Walvis Bay is the fifth port the Severomorsk is visiting during the voyage to the African continent. Earlier, it called at the Seychelles, Tanzania, Mozambique and the South African Republic.
The Severomorsk and support ships have been on a voyage since 15 October 2016. For three months, the crew provided combat stability of the task force led by the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier during their voyage across the Mediterranean Sea and during the military operation off to Syria’s coast between November 2016 and January 2017.
The anti-submarine destroyer has been accomplishing combat tasks in the Indian Ocean since mid-January. On February 9-15, the Severomorsk took part in international naval drills in the Arabian Sea and at Pakistan’s naval base.
