MURMANSK, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The Pyotr Velinky heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser, which carries out tasks within a group of Russian ships in the Mediterranean Sea, has made a portcall to Limassol, Cyprus, spokesman to the Western Military District, Captain I Rank Vadim Serga told Itar-Tass.
Russian Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Cyprus Stanislav Osadchiy will visit the cruiser during the stay, the spokesman said.
“This is the first visit by the Pyotr Veliky cruiser to the port of Limassol in the history of international cooperation between Russia and the Republic of Cyprus,” Serga said.
The crew of the Russian cruiser is expected to refresh a ship with foodstuffs. Russian marines will have an opportunity to go sightseeing and have a rest.
The Pyotr Veliky went out to sea on October 22, 2013 by calling into the main base of the Northern Fleet — Severomorsk. The cruiser made about 8,000 nautical miles. It will take several months for the ship to exercise the cruise.
