At present, the VPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov”, the rescue tugboat “Altai” and the medium sea tanker “Akademik Pashin” are moving through the Norwegian Sea in difficult hydrometeorological conditions.
The navigational watch was strengthened on the ship and ships, the property was secured in a storm-like manner.
Until the end of the long voyage, the crew of the large anti-submarine ship “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” will complete a number of combat training missions in the Norwegian and Barents Seas. Support vessels will return to their bases a few days earlier.
The long-range cruise of the VPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” began on June 28 with an exit from the main base of the Northern Fleet – Severomorsk. The crew of the ship 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 Severomors performed tasks as part of a permanent task force of the Russian Navy 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 a search for submarines of a conditional enemy.
In October, the North Sea residents ensured the safety of civilian shipping off the coast of Africa in the Atlantic Gulf of Guinea. They inspected several civilian ships and ensured the safe escort of the Panamanian container ship Lucia, preventing pirates from hijacking its Ukrainian, Russian and Romanian crew.
Since leaving the base, the VPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” has traveled more than 26.5 thousand nautical miles, visiting the ports of five foreign countries.
