Pacific Fleet (PF) task unit consisting of destroyer 'Admiral Panteleyev', oiler 'Boris Butoma', and rescue tug 'Fotiy Krylov' continue exercises.

The Russian ships had been taking part in RIMPAC-2012 off the Hawaii islands.

The ships exercised various shipborne drills and near the 11- hour time zone replenished fuel and fresh water from the supporting oiler Boris Butoma. Afterwards the crew of Admiral Panteleyev and her attached marine unit held a small-arms firing drill.

The Russian Navy's task unit will call at Japanese port Maizuru on Aug 28. During a four-day stay there, PF servicemen will pay a number of courtesy visits, have a rest, replenish supplies and then set the homeward course. The unit is expected to arrive in Vladivostok early Sept.
