AKRKHANGELSK, July 26 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Northern Fleet will continue to explore new navigation areas in the Arctic, the Fleet’s commander Vladimir Korolev told reporters on Friday.
"Quite soon, we plan to send a detachment of the fleet’s combat ships led by heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser Peter the Great to eastern regions of the Arctic Ocean."
"The Northern Fleet’s another squadron of ships will go to the islands of Franz Josef Land,” the admiral said. “The campaign will mark the 100th anniversary of the expedition to the North Pole of an outstanding Russian Arctic explorer Georgy Sedov".
The North Fleet’s spokesman Vadim Serga told Itar-Tass that the fleet’s surface naval forces had been in the Arctic since the middle of 2012.
"At that time, in the Barents and Kara Seas were the Fleet’s over ten warships, while The Peter the Great jointly with large landing ships for the first time in the Russian Navy’s carried out a campaign to the Novosibirsk Archipelago," he said.
