Today marks the 40th anniversary of the first raising of the Navy flag on the large anti-submarine ship (BOD) of the Northern Fleet “Vice-Admiral Kulakov”. Together with the Naval flag and the jack, the topmast flags and flags of the festive version were raised.

The ceremonial meeting took place on the ship’s helipad, in which the fleet command, the crew of the BOD and the veterans of the Navy took part.

During the event, an order was read out to encourage the ship’s personnel and to award distinguished servicemen.

In 2021, the crew of the VPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” 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, 2021, 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 2021, the Severomorians 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.

For reference:

BPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” was built at the Leningrad shipyard named after A.A. Zhdanov. On January 10, 1982, the Naval Flag was raised on it.

In 2010, at the Severnaya Verf Shipyard in St. Petersburg, a deep modernization of the ship was completed, within the framework of which the weapons and life support systems were replaced at the VPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov”.

The crew of the ship has repeatedly taken part in long voyages in the Mediterranean, the North Atlantic sea zone and the Arctic.

The “birthday” of the ship is celebrated on the next anniversary from the moment the ship was admitted to the fleet and the crew began to carry out tasks for their intended purpose.
