    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - An oceanographic research ship of Russia's Baltic Fleet, the Admiral Vladimirsky, completed its business call at the port of Victoria, Seychelles, the Western Military District's spokesman for the Baltic Fleet, Roman Martov, said Saturday.

    "The crew of the Admiral Vladimirsky ship of the Baltic Fleet replenished fuel reserves and took part in a number of memorable and cultural events in the largest city of Seychelles," Martov said.

    The crew members also paid tribute to the Russian Navy's Capt. 2nd rank Alexander Krupenin from the Razboinik cruiser, who was buried at the Russian cemetery in the city of Victoria in 1906, Martov added.

    "During the ship's business call, Russian diplomats led by Russian Ambassador to the Republic of Seychelles, Vladimir Belous visited the vessel of the Baltic Fleet," the spokesman said.

    The crew of the Admiral Vladimirsky continued to carry out research hydrographic work in the Indian Ocean, according to the plan of the international expedition, Martov added.
