March 15, 2020 (Google Translation) – The Leningrad naval base of the Baltic Fleet marks the 101st anniversary of the founding of the association.
At the end of the 2019 school year, the Leningrad Naval Base (LenVMB), commanded by Rear Admiral Vyacheslav Rodionov, was recognized as the best naval association of the fleet.
At present, it includes ship formations, training units and military units located in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region.
The most important tasks facing sailors of the Leningrad Navy in modern conditions are the training of crews and the commissioning of the latest ships entering the arsenal of the Russian Navy.
The sailors of the Leningrad naval base provide all the activities related to the marine life of the city of St. Petersburg: visits of foreign military and training ships, parades, holidays and regattas. The ships of the Leningrad Navy, annually lining up on the Neva in the parade line on the eve of the celebration of the Navy’s Day, have become a unique visiting card of St. Petersburg and the Main Naval Parade.
Today in Kronstadt, where the headquarters of the Leningrad naval base has been based since 2008, solemn events dedicated to the memorable date are held.
On the eve of the holiday, the commander of the Baltic Fleet, Admiral Alexander Nosatov, in a solemn ceremony presented the naval association with a new standard battle banner and the corresponding letter from the President of Russia.
