Russia’s Large Anti-Submarine Ship, The Marshal Shaposhnikov, has started forming a convoy of civilian ships in the Gulf of Aden.
The Russian warship will escort the convoy of Greek and Panamanian ships along the “security corridor” towards the Strait of Bab el-Mandeb.
This is the eighth mission in the Gulf of Aden of the Russian squadron of The Marshal Shaposhnikov, a medium sea tanker and a rescue tug. The warships arrived in the Gulf of Aden in late December to keep the anti-piracy watch as part of an international naval force.
