MURMANSK, August 11. /ITAR-TASS/. The Vice-Admiral Kulakov large anti-submarine ship of Russia’s Northern Fleet will undergo planned repairs in the Black Sea port of Sevastopol after four months in the sea, the Northern Fleet’s spokesperson Vadim Serga told ITAR-TASS on Monday.
"The Vice-Admiral Kulakov is heading from eastern Mediterranean for the Aegean Sea and the Black Sea straits," Serga said, adding that the ship was expected in Sevastopol on August 15. The Vice-Admiral Kulakov will be the Northern Fleet’s second large amphibious ship after the Admiral Levchenko to be repaired in Sevastopol.
A shipyard in Sevastopol, which is going to do the repairs, has signed a three-year contract for repairing and servicing the ships of the Black Sea Fleet and other Russian fleets that carry out missions in southern waters.
The Vice-Admiral Kulakov started its long-distance voyage on April 15. On May 6, the ship headed the Russian naval force in the Mediterranean. It has already covered more than 12,000 nautical miles.
