13 May is a holiday honouring the Black Sea Fleet that began in 1996 to commemorate the founding of one of our main naval bases. The Black Sea Fleet is a strategic formation of the Navy of the Russian Federation to ensure Russia’s military security to the south. Its main bases are Sevastopol and Novorossiysk, with subsidiary bases at Temryuk and Tuapse. Besides the naval bases, it has surface ships and submarines, naval aviation and air defence units, coastal defence troops, and naval infantry battalions. The main objectives of the Black Sea Fleet at present are:

  • The protection of economic zones and areas of industrial activity, with the suppression of illegal activities
  • Ensuring navigational safety
  • Execution of Russian foreign policy in economically-important regions of the World Ocean (visits, business visits, joint exercises, activities in the peacekeeping forces, etc)
