"The crews of the Admiral Kuznetsov heavy through-deck cruiser and Magnitogorsk [Kilo-class] diesel-electric submarine as well as a separate air regiment of the Northern Fleet’s air force are among the best ships and units," Yevmenov said.

The Murmansk Region governor awarded the best commanders cups of appreciation at the session of the Northern Fleet’s Military Council.

At present, the aircraft carrier is on mission in the Mediterranean, leading the Northern Fleet’s carrier strike group comprising the Pyotr Veliky (Kirov-class) nuclear-powered missile cruiser, Severomorsk (Udaloy-class) antisubmarine warfare destroyer and several support vessels.

"The forces of the Northern Fleet have been operating in the Mediterranean Sea successfully," the fleet commander said.
