It is planned to deploy Ukrainian frigate Getman Sagaidachny to East African coast in order to fight sea piracy, reports Ukrainian Navy Press Center referring to the Navy Commander Yury Ilyin.

"The commander stressed that Ukrainian Navy would resume its presence in certain zones of the Black and the Mediterranean seas. In particular, it is planned that frigate Getman Sagaidachny with a helicopter and a special-task unit aboard will be deployed near the Horn of Africa as a part of the international anti-piracy campaign", says the press-release.

Yury Ilyin said at the Navy Council session that the year of 2012 was a breakthrough in arms recovery. In the current year, financing of ship repair works was five times as large as in previous years.

"Presently, we continue this work, but even now one can say with confidence that early in 2013 the fleet's core will comprise 11 warships fully ready for combat use", emphasized the Navy commander. He added that Ukrainian Navy would also have 10 aircraft and 31 supply vessels.
