The missile corvette Zeleny Dol from Russia’s Black Sea Fleet has arrived at Syria’s second largest port, the fleet commander said Thursday.

"The Zeleny Dol arrived in Tartus yesterday as part of its mission. It will be relieved by the Serpukhov," Adm. Alexander Vitko said at a keel-laying ceremony for the Project-22160 Pavel Derzhavin patrol ship in Zelenodolsk, Sputnik reported.

Both the Zeleny Dol and the Serpukhov are Buyan-class corvettes designed by the Zelenodolsk Design Bureau. The missile version of a Buyan-class corvette is typically armed with Kalibr (SS-N-27) anti-ship missiles, 100-mm and 30-mm guns, as well as Igla-1M air defense missiles.
Last Saturday, the Zeleny Dol left its home port in Crimea’s Sevastopol to join Russia’s permanent naval task force in the Mediterranean.
