MOSCOW, April 15 (Itar-Tass) - The big anti-submarine ship Marshal Shaposhnikov is on a routine visit at the South Korean port Pusan, spokesman for the Russian Pacific Fleet Captain First Rank Roman Martov told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The convoy of the Russian Pacific Fleet went on a routine visit to the port Pusan on April 14,” he noted. “Traditionally the warships of the two countries exchange ‘the salute of the nations’ when calling at the foreign port,” he remarked.
The officials of the Russian diplomatic mission and the Command of the South Korean Navy welcomed the Pacific Fleet naval sailors on the mooring, the spokesman said. After the welcome ceremony the delegation of the Russian General Consulate in Pusan visited the big anti-submarine ship Marshal Shaposhnikov. On April 16, the official Russian delegation headed by Commander of the Pacific Fleet convoy Rear Admiral Vladimir Vdovenko is to pay a protocol visit to the Command of the South Korean Navy.
During a five-day visit the crew of the Russian warship will have an intensive cultural program, and Russian compatriots and residents of the city will visit the warship.
“The routine visit of the Pacific Fleet convoy in the South Korean port will last until April 18,” Martov noted.
The Russian Pacific Fleet convoy of the big anti-submarine ship Marshal Shaposhnikov, the sea tanker Irkut and the rescue tugboat Alatau set out from Vladivostok on November 2, 2012 and headed for the Gulf of Aden for an anti-piracy mission. On March 4, the Russian naval convoy has completed the anti-piracy mission and headed for its base at the port Vladivostok. The Marshal Shaposhnikov crew includes the marine units and the aviation group with two deck helicopters, which were on an air reconnaissance mission to find the pirate ships.
