A naval parade in honor of the Day of the Russian Navy was held in Vladivostok. The inspection of the ships for the second year in a row was held in the waters of the Golden Horn Bay.

An hour before the start of the festive celebrations, the State and Naval flags, as well as the flags of coloring, were raised on the ships and auxiliary vessels moored at the berths on the warships of the fleet standing in the ranks. Traditionally, the flag-raising ceremony took place on the S-56 memorial submarine and the Red Vympel military museum ship, which are permanently moored on Vladivostok’s Korabelnaya embankment.

On 16 ceremonial barrels in the main bay of Vladivostok near the Golden Bridge in honor of the Day of the Navy, warships of the main classes are lined up. The parade was headed by the flagship of the Pacific Fleet – the Guards Order of Nakhimov, the missile cruiser Varyag. Behind it were the large anti-submarine ship “Admiral Tributs”, the corvette “Perfect”, the small anti-submarine ship “Sovetskaya Gavan”, the missile frigates of the Navy of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam – “Tran Hung Dao” and “Quang Chung”. The large diesel submarine “Ust-Bolsheretsk” closed the front line.

The commander of the Pacific Fleet, Admiral Sergei Avakyants, on the Hurricane boat, walked around the parade line in turn and congratulated the crews of the warships on the holiday.

After bypassing the line of ships, Admiral Sergei Avakyants boarded the Order of Nakhimov Guards missile cruiser “Varyag”, where he received a report from the chief of the guard of honor. On board the flagship, the fleet commander made a congratulatory speech, during which he noted that the Russian fleet, created by order of Peter the Great, had traveled a difficult but glorious path, has always been and remains a symbol of a strong Russian state – a great maritime power, one of the foundations of its defensive power.

Also, the governor of the Primorsky Territory Oleg Kozhemyako congratulated the sailors on the holiday.

The naval parade ended with volleys of artillery salute, which was fired from the Varyag state missile cruise ship.

Based on the fact that quarantine measures are still in force in the capital of the Primorsky Territory, which restrict the holding of mass events, this year it was decided to abandon the military sports festival, and residents and guests of Vladivostok were able to see all the details of the naval parade through a live broadcast on regional channel of Primorye.

In the evening, a theatrical performance, a light show and a large festive concert of the creative teams of the fleet dedicated to the Day of the Russian Navy and the 290th anniversary of the Pacific Fleet will be held at the main naval pier in the area of ​​Korabelnaya Embankment for the servicemen of the Pacific Fleet and families of naval sailors. Performances will take place on an impromptu pontoon stage of a floating crane moored at the pier. The concert program will be held in strict compliance with a set of measures to counter the threat of the spread of coronavirus infection, aimed at preserving the life and health of military personnel, civilian personnel and their families.

100 percent of the personnel of the crews of ships and vessels were in advance vaccinated with two components of the drug Gam-Covid-Vak. The division of radiation, chemical and biological protection (RHBZ) of the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) before the concert disinfected the warships and the quay wall.
