MOSCOW. Nov 5 (Interfax-AVN) - The Northern fleet big anti-submarine ship Vice Admiral Kulakov has completed its mission in the permanent unit of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean, Northern fleet representative Capt. 1st rank Vadim Serga told Interfax-AVN on Friday.

"The ship has entered the Atlantic Ocean through the Gibraltar Strait today," he said.

It took the ship several hours to pass through the strait. It took place at nighttime.
