A group of the Russian Northern Fleet’s warships and support vessels led by the guided missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov has entered the Atlantic Ocean through the Strait of Gibraltar after accomplishing its Mediterranean mission, the Fleet’s press office reported on Monday.

“The group of the Northern Fleet’s warships and support vessels started its passage through the Strait of Gibraltar after completing its business call at the Spanish port of Ceuta on the Moroccan coast of Africa in the Mediterranean Sea that lasted three days,” the press office reported.

The missile cruiser is making its passage across the Atlantic Ocean together with the tanker Dubna and the rescue tug SB-406. During the passage through the Atlantic Ocean, the crew of the guided missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov will continue holding shipborne anti-submarine warfare and air defense drills, as well as measures to practice ship damage control. Shipborne helicopters will continue training flights of various complexity from the board of the missile cruiser.

The missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov was accomplishing missions in the Mediterranean Sea from August 11. Over this period, it took part in some joint measures with the warships of the Russian Navy’s permanent Mediterranean task force.

The missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov has been on a long-distance voyage since it left its main naval base of Severomorsk on July 5.

Over this time, it acted as a flagship of the Main Naval Parade in Kronshtadt, took part in inter-fleet drills of the Russian Navy in the Baltic and Mediterranean Seas and also made a business call at the capital of Algeria.
