MOSCOW, May 7 (Itar-Tass) - The Norwegian frigate Helge Ingstad has called in Severomorsk, the main base of Russia’s Northern Fleet, ahead of the two countries’ naval exercise Pomor 2013.
“The frigate crossed the border of Russia’s territorial waters in the Barents Sea, entered the Kola Bay being escorted by the small submarine chaser Snezhnogorsk and anchored in Severomorsk,” a spokesman for the Northern Fleet, Captain First Rank Vadim Serga told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The ship of the Royal Norwegian Navy will end its business visit on May 11, when the active phase of the naval drills starts in the Barents Sea and the Norwegian Sea.
The Russian submarine destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov of the Northern Fleet will take part in the exercise.
On Tuesday evening 50 Norwegian sailors will take part in the last rehearsal for the Victory Day parade in Murmansk.
It became a tradition for Murmansk to invite other countries’ navies to participate in the Victory Day parade. The French Navy frigate Latouche-Treville launched this tradition in 2010 to mark the 65th anniversary of the Victory Day in WWII. In 2011 and in 2012 Royal Norwegian Navy sailors from the Helge Ingstad and the Fridtjof Nansen participated in the festivities.
