MOSCOW, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Baltic Fleet’s big landing ship Kaliningrad has joined Russia’s inter-fleet naval force performing tasks in the Mediterranean Sea, chief press officer of the Baltic Fleet Captain 2nd Rank Vladimir Matveyev told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
“The big landing ship Kaliningrad has replaced the big landing ship Alexander Shabalin within planned rotation of Russia’s inter-fleet naval force in the Mediterranean Sea,” he said.
The Kaliningrad set out from the port of Baltiisk on December 24, 2013 and has made a crossing to Russia’s Black Sea Fleet naval base in Novorossiisk. During the crossing the crew drilled a set of training combat tasks, including air defense and anti-submarine exercises, deck exercises and trainings, and artillery exercise.
After the warship replenished fuel, water and food stocks at the port of Novorossiisk she headed for the Mediterranean Sea. For the warship’s crew this is not the first mission in the Mediterranean Sea. The warship passed the previous mission from December 2012 through August 2013.
Around ten warships and vessels of Black Sea, Northern and Baltic Fleets are on missions in the Mediterranean.
