Admiral Tributs Goes Pirate Hunting

Udaloy class BPK 534 Admiral Tributs gets underway for the Gulf of Aden. Will pass the Udaloy class Admiral Pantaleyev on her way back to Vladivostok.


While in port Novorossiysk, moored next to the Vishnya class AGI SSV-201, the Large Landing Ship Tsezar Kunikov loads a company of the 7th Airborne Division with about a dozen armored vehicles for transport to the firing range. According to the 7th Division spokesman, transporting the Airborne company by sea is in accordance with the Minister of Defense's policy of ensuring that the 7th Airborne Division remains a premier rapid reaction force, able to act in a professional manner in any situation.
