Russia's Northern Fleet will continue to ensure Russian naval presence across the world's oceans throughout 2017, Northern Fleet press service head Vadim Serga said Monday.

MURMANSK (Sputnik) — Throughout 2016, Russian navy surface vessels, submarines and supply vessels carried out over 30 long-haul expeditions across the world.

"In 2017, the Northern Fleet will continue to actively and deliberately support naval presence in the world's oceans," Serga said, quoting Northern Fleet Commander Vice-Admiral Nikolay Yevmenov.

The Northern Fleet's carrier battle group, which includes the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, is currently maintaining presence in the eastern Mediterranean, he added, noting that the group also includes the battlecruiser Pyotr Velikiy and the anti-submarine destroyer Severomorsk.
