A detachment of ships is performing a planned inter-fleet transition from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

The newest mine defense ship “Georgy Kurbatov” was accepted into the Black Sea Fleet in August 2021 and became the third ship of Project 12700 performing missions on the Black Sea Fleet.

On the logistics support vessel Vsevolod Bobrov, the St. Andrew’s flag was also raised in August 2021, and the vessel was accepted into the Black Sea Fleet.

For the crews, this is the first inter-fleet passage, during which they will have to cover more than 5 thousand nautical miles, and conduct a series of ship exercises in accordance with their mission.
