    Russia’s oceanographic research ship Admiral Vladimirsky restocked in Cyprus and is heading to Russia’s port of Kronstadt, the Baltic Fleet spokesman, Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov, said Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Admiral Vladimirsky left Russia's Kronstadt on April 6. The ship visited the port of Monaco in April, and the port in the African city of Djibouti in June.

    "Scientific research vessel of the Baltic Fleet Admiral Vladimirsky, carrying out a hydrographic campaign, is returning to the point of its permanent deployment — the port of Kronstadt in Leningrad region. Currently, the ship has left the port of Limassol [Cyprus], where it was restocking according to established standards, and headed to the port of Kronstadt," Martov said.
