Frigate Luoyang and training ship Zheng He arrived in Vladivostok on Friday. The ships are hosted by the Russian Udaloy class destroyer Admiral Vinogradov.
"The Chinese military delegation took part on Sunday in laying wreaths to the Glory of the Pacific Fleet memorial, commemorating Russian sailors who died defending their Motherland," Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov said.
Russian and Chinese sailors will participate later on Sunday in a variety of cultural and sport events, formal and informal meetings, he said.
Chinese warships last visited Vladivostok in 2008.
