A Russian Pacific Fleet task force has returned to the Russian Far Eastern port of Vladivostok following an international military exercise, the Fleet’s spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov said.

The vessels took part in the RIMPAC naval exercise in the United States’ Pearl Harbor.

The 2012 RIMPAC drills, held between July 11 and August 1, involved 45 warships and support vessels from 22 countries, as well as 100 combat aircraft and over 20,000 naval sailors.

The exercise comprised dozens of combat missions and exercises, including humanitarian, search and rescue operations. RIMPAC-2012 also practiced evacuation of civilians in an amphibious landing operation, as well as joint anti-submarine and anti-aircraft defense.

On its way home, the Russian task force, represented by the destroyer Admiral Panteleyev, the tanker Boris Butoma and the salvage tug Fotiy Krylov, visited Japan’s naval base Maizuru, which the vessels left on September 1.
