Posted by Kris Roman on October 22, 2008

A naval task force from Russia’s Northern Fleet has arrived in Turkey, an aide to the navy commander said Wednesday.

The task force includes the nuclear-powered missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky (Peter the Great) and the large ASW ship Admiral Chabanenko.

“The working call of the Northern Fleet task force to Turkey will contribute to further development of naval relations between the two states in the interest of strengthening stability and mutual confidence at sea,” Capt. 1st rank Igor Dygalo said.

The visit will last until Sunday.

The naval task force comprising also support ships left a naval base in northern Russia on September 22.

After port calls and training at sea in the Mediterranean, the Northern Fleet warships will head for the Caribbean to hold exercises in November with Venezuela’s navy.
