Russian Navy Vessels Enter Spanish Ceuta Port
Two Russian Navy vessels reached the Spanish Ceuta port on the Mediterranean coast of Africa today.
The vessels, Yaroslav Mudry (727), Baltic Fleet frigate, and the tanker Cola, met in the Mediterranean Sea from where they started their journey to the port.
The vessels are expected to stay in Ceuta until February 12, and afterwards they will continue Atlantic ops.
From August 9, when it departed the main naval base of Baltiysk, Yaroslav Mudry sailed more than 22 thousand nautical miles. Along the way, the vessel visited the Spanish Ceuta port, Valletta (Malta), Karachi (Pakistan), Jakarta (Indonesia), Penang (Malaysia), Colombo (Sri Lanka) and Salalah (Oman).
Yaroslav Mudry recently held exercises with the large anti-submarine vessel Severomorsk. Among the many drills undertaken, the crews practiced artillery firing at simulated surface, as well as air targets.
