Russian destroyer tows Ukrainian fishing vessel to Crete

Russia's Vice-Admiral Kulakov anti-submarine destroyer has taken the rescued Ukrainian fishing vessel in tow and is transporting it to the Greek island of Crete, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

"At the request of the captain of the distressed Ukrainian fishing vessel, the Northern Fleet's large anti-submarine ship Vice-Admiral Kulakov took the drifting vessel in tow and is transporting it to the nearest anchorage near Crete," Sputnik cited the ministry as saying.

The destroyer is expected to resume its operations as part of the naval task force stationed in the Mediterranean after wrapping up the rescue mission, the Russian ministry said.
