A spokesman for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force’s Staff Office, Atsushi Umehara, said that the Japanese Navy will visit Russia from the United States.

The training group will arrive in Russia’s Far Eastern city of Vladivostok after embarking from the US port of Anchorage in Alaska.

“Earlier, the group was scheduled to arrive in Vladivostok on October 15, but now this will happen a day earlier,” he said. 

“They will form a training group, which crews will mainly include cadets and young sailors, who will be candidates for command positions in future,” Umehara said when explaining the destroyer Harusame and the training ship Kashima will take part in the voyage.
