MOSCOW, April 28. /TASS/. Severomorsk, a large anti-submarine destroyer of Russia’s Northern Fleet, has returned to the Mediterranean Sea after completing its journey around the African continent, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
"By crossing the Strait of Gibraltar, Russian sailors completed their circumnavigation of the African continent," the ministry said.
The Severomorsk, flanked by the Altai and Dubna support ships, has 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.
