The command of Japan’s Maritime Self-Defence Force has announced on Thursday that Russia’s Pacific Fleet’s squadron comprising the large antisubmarine ship Admiral Vinogradov, Irkut tanker and Kalar tugboat, would visit the Maizuru naval base on the Honshu Island coast on December 16-20.
The Japanese Navy Staff told Itar-Tass that the Pacific Fleet ships on December 18 and 20 will take part in a joint search and rescue exercise in the area of Maizuru port. The exercise will involve the guided missile destroyer Shirane, Hayabusa missile boat and auxiliary vessels from the Japanese side.
