A naval task force from Russia’s Northern Fleet is heading to the eastern Arctic, taking the Northern Sea Route (NSR) reports Ria Novosti, citing a spokesperson for the fleet.

Led by the heavy nuclear-powered guided-missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky, the task force, which includes the large amphibious assault ships Olenegorsky Gornyak and Kondopoga and a variety of support vessels, has left its Severomorsk base and has entered the Barents Sea.

The warships will take the Northern Sea Route to the Novossibirsk Islands and carry out a number training missions, as part of Russia’s plan to restore its naval presence in strategically important areas.

According to Ria Novosti's source, the voyage is part of the Defense Ministry’s program under Russia’s Arctic policy and is designed to uphold Russia’s status as a leading Arctic power, strengthen its security, and ensure national interests.
