MOSCOW, December 03, 15:10 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Pacific Fleet naval squadron on the way to Vladivostok made a business visit to Singapore on Tuesday. Pacific Fleet spokesman Roman Martov told Itar-Tass that the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev, Admiral Nevelskoi and Peresvet landing ships, the ocean salvage vessel Foty Krylov and Pechenga tanker are returning from the Mediterranean where they were fulfilling combat tasks.
“The visit to Singapore will last until December 6,” Martov said. “During four days the crews will have the time for rest and technical inspection of the vessels.”
The Pacific Fleet squadron left Vladivostok on March 19, 2013. During the voyage it has passed the Pacific and Indian Oceans, visited the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Aden, as well as the Mediterranean, Marmara, Black, Arabian and Red Seas.
Over eight months the ships have made business and unofficial calls at the ports of Bur Safaga (Egypt), Bandar Abbas (Iran), Salalah (Oman), twice visited Limassol (Cyprus), Colombo (Sri Lanka), as well as twice made an inter-fleet passage to the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk.
