MOSCOW, May 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Northern Fleet’s big submarine chaser Vice-Admiral Kulakov which is performing missions in the Russian naval task force in the Mediterranean Sea has made a routine visit to the Cypriot port of Limassol, Northern Fleet’s spokesman Captain First Rank Vadim Serga told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
He noted that for the warship crew the visit to Cyprus became the second visit to a foreign port during the current naval mission. Vice-Admiral Kulakov has earlier visited the Spanish port of Ceuta after crossing of the Atlantic.
“The plan of the current naval mission envisages replenishment of warship stocks. Russian naval sailors will also receive an opportunity to visit local tourist attractions and have some rest on the coast,” Serga said.
In his words, the warship will stay in Limassol until May 30 and after that will continue her long mission within the Russian naval task force in the Mediterranean.
The big anti-submarine ship has started her long mission from the Northern Fleet main base of Severomorsk. During the mission, the warship has already passed around five thousand nautical miles.
In 2013 the Vice-Admiral Kulakov crew has also performed several tasks within the Russian permanent naval task force in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic. Northern Fleet naval sailors have spent more than 140 days in the high seas making several routine visits at ports of foreign countries, including Bergen (Norway), Liverpool (Great Britain), Lisbon (Portugal), Limassol (Cyprus), Havana (Cuba) and La Guaira (Venezuela).
