The transfer of this cargo occurred on the roadstead of the port of Victoria without entering the port during the replenishment period by an oceanographic research vessel of the Russian Navy.

According to the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolay Evmenov, following the results of the workshop held at the Admiralty and dedicated to the round-the-world of the oceanographic research vessel (ORV) "Admiral Vladimirsky", the crew and participants of the expedition handed over to the employees of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Seychelles several tanks of disinfectants for the prevention of viral and other infectious diseases. These products are intended for surface disinfection and hand treatment.

"The transfer to the Embassy staff of this cargo occurred on the roadstead of the port of Victoria without entering the port during the replenishment of the ORV "Admiral Vladimirsky", - said the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy.

Admiral Nikolay Evmenov also added that the ship is currently continuing a round-the-world expedition and is on an approved route in the Mozambique channel. The crew is healthy and will perform their tasks in accordance with the expedition plan.

Previously, Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief set tasks for 6-th stage of the world expedition of the Navy, which started for ORV "Admiral Vladimir" in December 2019.

As Admiral Nikolay Evmenov noted at a video conference with the Center of the Russian Geographical Society at the Main Command of the Navy, during the previous five stages of the expedition, the research tasks were completed. During the sixth stage the ORV "Admiral Vladimirsky" will circumnavigate Africa and arrive in Kronstadt in the first decade of June.

On April 30, the "Admiral Vladimirsky" ORV replenished supplies on the Seychelles roadstead and continued the expedition according to the approved plan. During the 6th stage, the expedition participants will continue oceanographic and hydrographic studies along the route and, in particular, route measurement of depths.

Admiral Nikolay Evmenov has already given instructions to carefully analyze the results of antarctic research carried out by the expedition members on board of the "Admiral Vladimirsky" ORV for 1.5 months, and to analyze the results of the round-the-world expedition when the ship arrives in Kronstadt.

The expedition is dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by Russian sailors and the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ivan Krusenstern.
