Commemorative events dedicated to the 117th anniversary of the formation of the Submarine Forces of the Pacific Fleet were held on the Korabelnaya embankment in the city of Vladivostok.

Veterans-submariners and representatives of the command of the Pacific Fleet laid wreaths and flowers at the monument to the first submariners and honored the memory of all who defended the safety of our Motherland under the water column.

During the solemn rally, a brief summary of 2021 and the achievements of Pacific submariners were summed up.

The best crew of the Pacific Fleet submarine in tactical training was the crew of the nuclear submarine missile cruiser “Tomsk”.

At the end of the year, the crew of the strategic nuclear submarine Vladimir Monomakh was awarded a new sign of military valor – the Ship Bowl. This is the first military team in Kamchatka to receive such an award. The personnel of the AICR “Vladimir Monomakh” was awarded for high training and skillful use of the combat capabilities of the Borey project cruiser, demonstrated during the execution of 4 missile launches with the Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles from the Sea of ​​Okhotsk against a coastal target from a submerged position.

For reference:

The first Russian submarines in the Pacific Ocean appeared in 1903, on the eve of the Russo-Japanese War. It was in Vladivostok in 1905 that the first in Russia “destroyer detachment” was created, attached to a separate cruiser detachment based in the Golden Horn Bay, about which the corresponding order of the commander of the Vladivostok port Rear Admiral Greve No. 1102 was issued.

Today, the Pacific Fleet includes nuclear and diesel submarines that carry intercontinental ballistic missiles, high-precision cruise missiles, anti-submarine and anti-ship strike weapons, reliably protecting the Far Eastern borders of the Russian Federation.
