A group of Indian warships arrived in Vladivostok, the main Russian Pacific Fleet base on Monday, to begin drills with the Russian Navy after exercises with the US Navy.

Three Indian warships INS Ranvir and Ranvijay, missile destroyers and indigenous Frigate INS Delhi, a Kirch Corvette and the tanker Jyoti docked at the famous Russian far eastern port, Itar-Tass reported.

The warships from the Eastern Fleet are commanded by Rear Admiral Bisht will hold sea-manoeuvres with the Russian Navy’s massive anti-submarine ship Admiral Tributz.

The Pacific Fleet command and the Vladivostok mayor will receive the Indian naval sailors.

This is the second visit of the Indian warships to Vladivostok.

In 2007 the Indian missile destroyers Mysore, Ranjit and Rana, the Kutar corvette and the Jyoti tanker participated in the joint anti-terror sea exercises with the Russian Navy.
