In accordance with combat training program, Black Sea Fleet (BSF) large landing ship Caesar Kunikov completes preparation for long-range cruise to the Mediterranean Sea. The ship is planned to visit ports of Greece and Montenegro in Oct-Nov, told BSF Commander's press secretary Capt 1 rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev to Central Navy Portal.

Having become traditional for BSF ships, such cruises strengthen mutual understanding among naval servicemen of Mediterranean countries and develop international cultural relations.

As is expected, the crew of Caesar Kunikov will attend festivities of the Russian Week in Greece to be held in Oct 6-10 in Corfu.

In the port of Pylos, BSF mariners will represent Russia at celebration related to anniversary of the Navarino Sea Battle. Also, large landing ship Caesar Kunikov will call at the port of Piraeus which is a sea gate to Greek capital city.

This year's cruise program for the first time includes formal calls at Greek ports Argostolion (Cephalonia Island) and Alexandroupolis (Rhodes Island).

When visiting Montenegrin port Kotor, Russian seamen will take part in a number of protocol events as well. BSF Song and Dance Company will be on board Caesar Kunikov in the long-range cruise.
