The patrol ship "Yaroslav Mudriy" of the Baltic Fleet made a business call to the port of Colombo
The patrol ship "Yaroslav Mudriy" of the Baltic Fleet made a scheduled business call at the port of Colombo (Sri Lanka).
During the stay, the crew replenished water, fuel, and food supplies and performed a technical inspection of the ship. After the completion of the call, which will last until March 6, the Baltic Fleet patrol ship will continue its anti-piracy watch in the Indian ocean.
The patrol ship ship will conduct routine training of combat crews to search for a mock enemy submarine with the rise of a Ka-27 helicopter. Anti-terror groups on the ships and vessels of the detachment will work out various scenarios for countering pirates in the Indian ocean.
A detachment of ships of the Baltic Fleet consisting of the patrol ship "Yaroslav Mudriy", the sea tug "Viktor Konetsky" and the tanker "Yelnya", performing planned tasks of a long-distance campaign, left the military harbor of Baltiysk on October 2019 and set a course for the Indian ocean. In December 2019, a group of ships led by the patrol ship "Yaroslav Mudriy" took part for the first time in the naval part of the Russian-Indian exercise INDRA-2019, the trilateral exercises with China and Iran "Marine Security Belt", and the Russian-Japanese anti-piracy exercise. Currently, the patrol ship "Yaroslav Mudriy" continues to perform the tasks of the anti-piracy watch in the Indian ocean.
