“On May 18 festive events will be held in the city of military glory Kronshtadt, where Peter the Great has established the first naval base of the Russian fleet at the beginning of the eighteenth century,” the press service of the Western Military District told Itar-Tass on Monday.
Commander of the troops of the Western Military District Colonel-General Anatoly Sidorov, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Admiral Viktor Chirkov and Commander of the Baltic Fleet Vice-Admiral Viktor Kravchuk will participate in the festivities.
The holiday will begin with a festive ceremony to hoist the Russian naval flag and with a flower-laying ceremony to the Monument to Peter the Great, who is the founder of the Russian fleet and Kronshtadt.
First five warships of the Baltic Fleet are expected to arrive in the cradle of the Russian fleet on May 15. “The flagship of the Baltic Fleet, the destroyer Nastoichivy and the four-masted training barque Kruzenshtern will participate in the festive events for the first time,” the press service of the Western Military District reported.
