The large anti-submarine ship “Vice-Admiral Kulakov”, the medium sea tanker “Akademik Pashin” and the rescue tugboat “Altai” began to perform the assigned tasks of a long-range cruise in the Mediterranean Sea as part of a detachment under the command of the chief of staff of the antisubmarine ships brigade of the Northern Fleet, Captain 1st Rank Stanislav Varika. The Severomors will work out joint maneuvering, hold a number of exercises and make business calls to the ports of a number of countries in the region. The return of the detachment to Severomorsk is planned before the end of the year.

BPK “Vice-Admiral Kulakov” has been operating in the Mediterranean Sea since the beginning of August. He made business visits to Algeria, Cyprus and Syria, conducted several exercises on air defense and search for submarines in the areas where the missions of the campaign were carried out, and also worked out a joint exercise with ships of the Black Sea and long-range anti-submarine aviation of the Northern Fleets. During the entire voyage, the ship has covered more than 19 thousand nautical miles.

Medium sea tanker “Akademik Pashin” makes its first long-distance cruise. He was admitted to the Northern Fleet in early 2020, and arrived in the Mediterranean in September.

The rescue tugboat “Altai” entered the Mediterranean Sea from the Red Sea through the Suez Canal the day before. The vessel is part of a separate detachment of rescue ships of the Northern Fleet and is intended for search and rescue support of the fleet forces at sea, including during long voyages. SBS Altai has repeatedly participated in cruises of ships and vessels of the Northern Fleet to the Arctic, Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea.
