KALININGRAD, October 18 (Itar-Tass) - Russian corvette Soobrazitelny - the name translating as Smart/Astute - has arrived on an unofficial visit to the Irish port of Cork, on the southern coast of the country, Vladimir Matveev, information section head of Russia’s western military district, told Itar-Tass on Friday.
Baltic Fleet Commander Matveev said “it is the first time in modern Russian history that a Baltic fleet ship enters Ireland.” The visit aims to develop relations between the Russian navy and the naval forces of Ireland, he said.
Soobrazitelny will moor in Cork until October 23 for a festival program featuring the corvette’s participation in an international ship parade and scheduled meetings of the Russian and Irish naval commands. Russian sailors will visit places of interest and museums of the town, and open its decks to local guests.
