The destroyer Vice-Admiral Kulakov departed from the North Fleet main base, Severomorsk, on Tuesday. The voyage will last for several months. “The ship under command of Capt. 1st Rank Stanislav Varik will go through the Atlantic Ocean into the Mediterranean Sea and join the inter-fleet force of the Russian Navy,” report of the North Fleet press service, obtained by Interfax, states.

“The Vice-Admiral Kulakov goes on mission consistent with the Russian Defense Ministry’s policy of the resumed permanent presence of the Russian Navy in strategic areas of the World Ocean,” the report runs. The Vice-Admiral Kulakov has been a part of the Russian naval force in the Mediterranean before. The crew of the North Fleet ship spent 140 days on the high seas in 2013 and covered a distance of over 27,000 nautical miles.
