The Arctic group of the Northern Fleet, which operates in the Arctic Ocean under the flag of Vice-Admiral Oleg Golubev, Deputy Commander of the Northern Fleet, arrived at the Novosibirsk Islands archipelago in the Laptev Sea.

The large anti-submarine ship “Severomorsk”, the large landing ship “Georgy the Pobedonosets” and the support vessels took up anchorage places in the Stakhanovtsev Gulf of the Arctic near Kotelny Island.

In the near future, the Severomors will continue to work in this area to study the places available for the amphibious assault on the coast of the island and the subsequent conduct of an exercise to protect the Arctic territories of the Russian Federation.

During the passage by the Laptev sea, the forces of the Northern Fleet along the route of the Northern Sea Route worked out a number of comprehensive exercises for the defense of a detachment of ships during the passage by sea. Also, the sailors conducted rescue training, in which the rescue and tugboat “Pamir” was involved.

The crews of the large anti-submarine ship “Severomorsk” and the large landing ship “George the Victorious”, as part of the exercise for the defense of the detachment of ships, fired naval artillery at air and sea targets.

Marines from the anti-terrorist divisions practiced repelling a conditional attack by small high-speed floating craft and fired from machine guns and machine guns at a naval target.

In the Laptev Sea, the crew of the Ka-27 helicopter also performed a number of air and ice reconnaissance flights from the deck of the Severomorsk BOD.

For reference:

The tenth Arctic cruise of the surface forces of the Northern Fleet began on August 10 with an exit from the main base of the Northern Fleet in the city of Severomorsk. The cruise takes place under the flag of Vice-Admiral Oleg Golubev, Deputy Commander of the Northern Fleet. During the Arctic cruise, ships and support vessels of the Northern Fleet have covered more than 8,500 nautical miles, conducted a number of exercises in the waters of the Barents and Kara Seas, as well as in the port of Dikson.
