Russian warships arrive at Havana port after drills

A detachment of Russian warships arrived at the port of Havana, Cuba, on Wednesday after completing exercises on using high-precision weapons, reported Xinhua, quoting the Russian Defense Ministry.

The ministry said these ships, belonging to the Northern Fleet, have arrived at the port on an "unofficial visit." They include a nuclear-powered submarine and a frigate with modern weapons on board.

Before entering the Havana port, the ships conducted computer-simulated exercises, practicing high-precision missile strikes against naval targets representing a mock enemy over 600 km away, according to the ministry.

In the coming days, the crews of the ships and support vessels will participate in several protocol events, have the opportunity to rest, and explore local attractions, the ministry said.

The Cuban Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that the Russian warships would visit the port of Havana from Wednesday to Monday, and the visit is within the framework of "historically friendly relations between Cuba and Russia."
