Large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev will help border guards intercept Tulun freezer ship

The Admiral Panteleyev large anti-submarine ship of the Pacific Fleet will be on combat duty in the Russian waters near Nakhodka where it is heading for now, the Fleet's press centre reported on Wednesday. The ship will not participate in intercepting the Sakhalin fishing freezer ship Tulun and the Cambodian trawler Corf which is believed to have seized it. The ship will be on duty in the Russian waters, thereby giving assistance to the marine border guards.

In the meantime a Russian border-guard aircraft is continuing to barrage over the two craft which are going to Otaru port of Japan. The command to head either for the Sakhalin port of Korsakov, or for Vladivostok, or for Nakhodka was given to the captains of both craft.

If they obey the border guards' command and head for Vladivostok or Nakhodka the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev will meet them in the Russian waters, the press service of the Fleet noted.
