VLADIVOSTOK, November 25, 17:44 /ITAR-TASS/. The convoy of the Russian Pacific Fleet warships, which performed their combat tasks in the Mediterranean Sea, has called with a courtesy visit at the Sri Lanka port of Colombo, Southeast Asia, the press service of the Russian Pacific Fleet reported on Monday.
The Pacific Fleet’s convoy consists of the big submarine chaser Admiral Panteleyev, landing warships Admiral Nevelskoy and Peresvet, the ocean-going rescue ship Fotiy Krylov and the tanker Pechenga. “Their crews were given a chance to have some rest and conduct the maintenance of the warships and vessels,” the press service said.
The Russian Pacific Fleet’s convoy will stay in Sri Lanka until November 26, after that the warships will head for the Russian Far Eastern port of Vladivostok.
The Russian warships went on a combat duty in the Mediterranean Sea on March 19. Over the past eight months they crossed the Pacific and Indian Oceans, visited the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Aden, Mediterranean, Arabian and Red Seas.
During their mission the Pacific Fleet convoy called with courtesy and unofficial visits in the ports of Bur-Safaga (Egypt), Bandar-Abbas (Iran), Salalah (Oman) and two visits to Limassol (the Republic of Cyprus) and has made an inter-fleet crossing to the Russian Black Sea port of Novorossiysk.
Three convoys of the Russian Pacific Fleet, which include ten warships and vessels, continue combat missions in the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
