The Russian Navy has successfully completed a two-month anti-piracy mission in the Gulf of Aden.

During the deployment, the Russian Pacific Fleet’s task force, led by the navy’s Udaloy Class missile destroyer Marshal Shaposhnikov has escorted over 100 commercial vessels from different countries, according to RIA Novosti.

The task force, which also included the MB-37 salvage tug, the Pechenga tanker and a missile destroyer, joined the anti-piracy mission in the region on 29 March.

The task force was the fourth group of warships from the Russian Pacific Fleet engaged in the anti-piracy mission off Somalia.
