MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
A detachment of ships and vessels of the Northern Fleet, performing the tasks of a long voyage in the Gulf of Guinea, made a business call at the port of Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea. The crews of the large anti-submarine ship “Vice-Admiral Kulakov”, the medium sea tanker “Akademik Pashin” and the rescue tugboat “Altai” will replenish their supplies of water, fuel and food within a few days. The exit of sailors to the city is not panned due to the difficult epidemic situation.
In the Gulf of Guinea of the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of the African continent, Russian sailors ensure the safety of civilian navigation. They use carrier-based aircraft to monitor the surface situation. Last week, the Severomors conducted an exercise to free a civil ship conditionally seized by pirates and practiced firing at surface targets with naval artillery and anti-aircraft missiles.
The Severomors took up anti-piracy watch in early October. In addition to the fight against piracy, the crews of the VPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” and support vessels prepared to provide possible assistance to sailors in distress in the ocean.
The long-range cruise of the VPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” began on June 28 with the exit from the main base of the Northern Fleet – Severomorsk. At first, the ship’s crew took part in the Main Naval Parade in Kronstadt, and after its completion, they worked out individual episodes of practical actions in the Atlantic during a command and staff training in managing the forces and troops of the Northern Fleet.
From August 18 to September 23, the North Sea men operated in the Mediterranean Sea. During this time, they made business calls to Algeria, Syria and Cyprus, and also conducted a number of exercises on various types of defense of a detachment of ships in the transition by sea and worked out the search for submarines of a conditional enemy.
Since leaving the base, the VPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” has covered about 19.5 thousand nautical miles.
