MURMANSK, February 25 (RIA Novosti) - The Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, the Admiral Chabanenko destroyer and the Nikolai Chiker salvage tug are returning to their home port after a tour of duty in the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean, a spokesman for the Russian Northern Fleet said on Wednesday.

Capt. 1st Rank Igor Babenko said the warships are expected to return to Severomorsk, the main base of the Northern Fleet, "in late February or early March."

He said the vessels had already passed the northern coast of Norway escorted by a Norwegian coast guard vessel and a P-3 Orion aircraft.

Russia announced last year that its Navy had resumed, and would continue to build up, a constant presence throughout the world.
