Philippines welcomes visiting 5 Russian naval vessels

Five naval vessels from the Russian Pacific Fleet arrived in Manila on Tuesday, the Philippine Navy said.

These are Corvette Gremyashchiy, two submarines, tanker Pechenga, and support vessel Alatau.

“The arrival of the Russian contingent in the country and the accommodation and support being extended to them underscores the promotion of peace, stability, and maritime cooperation in the region,” the Navy said in a statement.

The Russian naval vessels arrived in the county as part of their routine port replenishment and rest of the crew.—Richa Noriega/LDF, GMA News
