July 15, 2020 (Google Translation) – Today, the missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov, after carrying out planned combat training tasks, returned to the main base of the Northern Fleet, the city of Severomorsk.
Having moored at its regular berth, the cruiser’s crew began the planned preparation for the Day of the Navy. The crew of the cruiser “Marshal Ustinov” will celebrate the holiday in a parade at the North Sea raid.
The ship was in the sea for more than a week. During this time, the crew of the missile cruiser took part in a large-scale gathering campaign of the diverse forces of the Northern Fleet, performed missile, artillery, anti-aircraft and other firing, and also fulfilled a number of planned combat training tasks.
The missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov returned to the Northern Fleet several years ago after an average repair and modernization. Today it is not only a ship with more than 30 years of history, but also an updated cruiser capable of effectively solving problems anywhere in the World Ocean.
The next long march of “Marshal Ustinov” ended in February this year and lasted more than seven months. During this time, the cruiser’s crew took part in the Main Naval Parade and in the training of the Russian Navy “Ocean Shield-2019”, operated in the Mediterranean Sea, the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. And at the beginning of this year, the cruiser as a flagship took part in the joint training of the Northern and Black Sea fleets of Russia in the Black Sea. From the command post located on its board, the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation observed the progress of the exercise.
Last year, the missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov was the flagship of the Main Naval Parade in St. Petersburg.
