ARKHANGELSK, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky, Northern Fleet’s flagship which leads a Russian naval group deployed to the Mediterranean, made a business call at the port of Limasol, Cyprus, on Wednesday, Northern Fleet spokesman Vadim Serga told Tass on Wednesday.
“While the ship is docked at the port, the crew will get an opportunity to take a rest and make sightseeing tours. The cruiser will also be replenished,” Serga said.
Earlier this week, the battleship’s crew was on a mission to help ensure the safety of a third stage of an operation to transport Syrian chemical weapons, in cooperation with Chinese, Danish and Norwegian seamen. “Ships’ activity was coordinated by international headquarters deployed on board the Pyotr Veliky,” the spokesman added.
On October 22, 2013, the cruiser set off on a long-distance cruise from Severomorsk, the main naval base of the Northern Fleet, covering about 19,000 nautical miles since then. From November 10, it has housed the operating command headquarters of a naval group operating in the Mediterranean on a permanent basis. The group includes ships of the Northern, Black Sea, Baltic and Pacific fleets.
