Severomorsk ASW ship re-enters service
The Russian Navy's Severomorsk Udaloy-class anti-submarine destroyer has re-entered service following repairs, joining a detachment heading to Severomorsk, the main base of the Northern fleet.
During the trip, the ship visited the Indian and Atlantic oceans, took part in the main naval parade in the city of Kronstadt. The crew carried out a number of military diplomatic missions and visited the ports of Algeria, Victoria, Pemba, Antsiranana, Djibouti, Karachi and Limassol.
From mid-January to early March, the ship was repaired in the main base of the Black Sea Feet – Sevastopol, and then continued to operate in the Mediterranean sea.
In total, the ship covered over 40,000 nautical miles and performed combat missions related to combating piracy and terrorist activities at sea, self-defence of the ship, and submarine tracking and classification.
