Large landing ships (BDK) of the Baltic Fleet “Minsk” and “Korolev” returned to the Naval Harbor of Baltiysk after completing the tasks of a long-distance sea voyage.

The crews of the large landing craft were on the march for 1.5 months, flying the St. Andrew’s flag across the Mediterranean, Black and North Seas, as well as the Atlantic Ocean. The ships have covered over 10,000 nautical miles, making a call at the port of Tartus in the Syrian Arab Republic. The long-distance cruise of the ships took place in accordance with the combat training plan of the Russian Navy. One of the main tasks of the ships’ cruise was the demonstration of the Andreevsky flag. The crews of the ships performed dozens of combat training missions, among which were air defense exercises, various ship exercises and trainings, and artillery fire at sea and air targets.

The ceremonial meeting dedicated to the meeting of the ship was attended by representatives of the command of the fleet and the administration of the city of Baltiysk, as well as relatives and friends of the Baltic sailors. On behalf of the members of the Fleet Military Council, Vice Admiral Viktor Liina, Commander of the Baltic Fleet, congratulated the commanders of the ships and crews on the successful completion of the assigned long-range missions and wished them new success in combat training.

In a solemn atmosphere, the servicemen who distinguished themselves on a long voyage were awarded valuable gifts from the command of the fleet. The large landing craft returned from a long voyage technically sound and ready, after replenishing the necessary reserves, to perform the tasks as intended.
