Baltic Fleet Neustrashimy frigate holds replenishment in Malta, departs for Mediterranean
The Baltic Fleet frigate Neustrashimy has departed for the Mediterranean Sea after a visit to Valletta, Malta.
The ship arrived in Valletta on Saturday to take aboard fresh water and food and the crew had time to rest. The visit lasted for three days, the fleet press service said.
Ship commanders attended protocol meetings with the Valletta administration and military authorities.
The frigate will now continue its mission in the Mediterranean.
The Neustrashimy left the Baltic Fleet main base, Baltiysk, in March 2013. It has covered 27,000 nautical miles since then to participate in an anti-piracy mission in the Gulf of Aden and visit a number of foreign ports.
A marine unit trained to fight sea pirates is stationed onboard the frigate.
