In 2012, intensity and overall deployment duration of Black Sea Fleet (BSF) ships in the Mediterranean Sea has grown. That region is considered the fleet's area of responsibility.

BSF warships and auxiliary vessels have performed 9 deployments and 12 visits to foreign ports this year. Range of tasks, deployment geography and performance intensity have considerably expanded as well.

Following BSF assets were on mission in the Mediterranean Sea and the Gulf of Aden in the current year: hydrographic ship Donuzlav, landing ships Nikolai Filchenkov, Novocherkassk, and Caesar Kunikov (2 times), frigate Ladny, destroyer Smetlivy, floating workshop PM-138, replenishment oiler Ivan Bubnov, seagoing tug MB-304, and rescue tug Shakhter. BSF diesel submarine Alrosa carried out long-range cruise from Kronshtadt to Sevastopol.

Overall deployment duration of BSF ships at remote sea zones in 2012 is about 15 months.

Guard missile cruiser Moskva, destroyer Smetlivy, landing ship Saratov, floating workshop PM-56, replenishment oiler Ivan Bubnov and seagoing tug MB-304 currently continue performing tasks in the Mediterranean Sea.
