KALININGRAD, May 2 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Baltic Fleet’s patrol ship Neustrashimy arrived at the destination point of the Gulf of Aden, where a convoy of civilian ships will be formed to escort them with the navigation security ensured in this sea area.
The Neustrashimy will be staying in the designated area until the end of forming a convoy of civilian ships, which are en route to the Red Sea, head of the information support department of the press service of the Western Military District of the Russian Baltic Fleet Captain Second Rank Vladimir Matveyev told Itar-Tass. The Russian naval sailors are to lead the civilian convoy through ‘the security corridor’ to the western part of the Gulf of Aden, he noted.
The patrol ship Neustrashimy set out from Baltiisk, the main naval base of the Baltic Fleet, in March 2013. During a long voyage the patrol ship has sailed already over 6,000 nautical miles.
This is already the third mission for The Neustrashimy to the Horn of Africa. The patrol ship went on the previous mission in 2010. Then the patrol ship led seven convoys of 28 civilian ships with the aggregate tonnage of about 1.3 million tonnes. During the combat mission the Russian sailors detained seven people suspected of piracy.
