18 January 2022

Combat ships of Russia, Iran and China will take part in joint naval exercises, the press service of the Eastern Military District (EMD) for the Pacific Fleet reported on Tuesday.

"A detachment of Pacific Fleet ships consisting of the Guards Order of Nakhimov missile cruiser Varyag, the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Tributs and the large sea tanker Boris Butoma, has anchored at the roadstead of the port of Chahbehar of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In the port, an official delegation of the Russian Navy will take part in a planned conference on joint naval exercises of combat ships of Russia, Iran and China," the report said.

It noted that Russian ships will also replenish food, water and fuel supplies.

The press service recalled that a detachment of Pacific Fleet ships left Vladivostok for a long voyage a few days before 2022. It is planned that the ships will call at the ports of a number of countries, including the Republic of Seychelles. The call will be timed to coincide with the 105th anniversary of the visit of the Russian Navy armored cruiser Varyag to the Seychelles port of Victoria. During the voyage, scheduled exercises, including international ones, will be conducted as part of a squadron of warships in various areas.
