Pacific Fleet (PF) large ASW ship Admiral Panteleyev commanded by Capt 2 rank Sergei Sobokar completes preparations for a long-range cruise. The ship will head for Singapore early May to pay informal visit and take part in the international maritime defense exhibition IMDEX-2011.

Later on, the ship will leave Singapore on May 20 and set a course for Indonesia to pay informal visit to Makassar port in May 25-27. Russian and Indonesian mariners will hold scheduled joined anti-piracy drills.

Recall that the crew of Admiral Panteleyev leading the PF second anti-piracy task force had been protecting commercial shipping in the Gulf of Aden since Apr 27 till June 7, 2009. During a patrol off Somalia, PF mariners detained a group of 29 pirates with small arms, boarding ladders, navigation equipment, and large number of fired cases. Pirates were handed over to Iranian and Pakistani authorities then.
