A Pacific Fleet task force led by the Admiral Panteleyev destroyer docked at the Indonesian port of Surabaya on Thursday, the fleet’s spokesman said.
The Admiral Panteleyev destroyer, accompanied by the Fotiy Krylov salvage tug and the Boris Butoma tanker, are paying a friendly visit to the Indonesian port city of Surabaya on return to their home port in Vladivostok from an anti-piracy mission in the Gulf of Aden.
The spokesman said that during the visit the officers and sailors of the warships will meet with their Indonesian colleagues and tour the city.
During its four-month anti-piracy mission, which ended on January 15, the ship escorted a number of convoys of civil vessels through pirate-infested waters off the Horn of Africa.
The Russian Navy has maintained a presence off the Horn of Africa since October 2008, with warships operating on a rotation basis.
