MOSCOW, November 22. /ITAR-TASS/. A group of Russian Pacific Fleet warship that was on a combat duty to the Mediterranean Sea has sailed into the Indian Ocean and is heading for Pacific Fleets’ base of Vladivostok, Far East, fleet’s spokesman Roman Martov told Tass on Friday.
The group consists of the destroyer Admiral Panteleyev, the landing ships Admiral Nevelsky and Peresvet, the ocean rescue tugboat Fotii Krylov and the tanker Pechenga.
“On the way to their harbor, the ships will make a business call at the port of Colombo (Sri Lanka),” he said.
Captain First Rank Martov said the group of Pacific Fleet ships left Vladivostok on March 19, 2013. During the eight-month combat service, they have crossed the Pacific and Indian oceans, sailed to the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Aden, to the Mediterranean, Arabian and Red seas.
They called at Bur Safaga (Egypt), Bandar Abbas (Iran), Salala (Oman), and twice at Limassol (Cyprus), as well as visited the Black Sea Fleet’s base of Novorossiisk.
"Currently, the Pacific Fleet has three groups of naval ships deployed in the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean. They include ten ships, including fleet’s flagship, the missile cruiser Varyag,” Martov said.
October and November have become the busiest months over the past ten years for Pacific Fleet ships in terms of international diplomacy.
