MOSCOW, July 22 (RIA Novosti) – A Russian missile cruiser started on Tuesday patrols in the area around Norway’s Arctic archipelago of Spitsbergen, to ensure security of Russia’s maritime navigation in Arctic, a Navy spokesman said.

“The Marshal Ustinov, a Slava-class missile cruiser, took over the patrol mission from a Russian ASW ship, the Severomorsk, which sailed to the Barents Sea to participate in the Northern Eagle 2008 joint U.S.-Russian naval exercise,” Capt. 1st rank Igor Dygalo said.

The Russian Navy resumed on July 14 a military presence around the Arctic Ocean, including the area of Spitsbergen.


Dygalo said Russian warships will strictly observe international law during patrols in the Arctic region, including the provisions of the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention.

The Marshal Ustinov is the second Slava-class missile cruiser in the Russian Navy. She was launched in 1982 and commissioned with the Northern Fleet in 1986.
