Ukraine’s Navy Hetman Sahaidachnyi frigate proceeds the third patrolling in the Gulf of Aden

On November 10, the Ukrainian Navy Hetman Sahaidachnyi (U130) frigate within the Multinational Ship Component under the Ocean Shield operation proceeded the third patrolling in the Gulf of Aden.

During the second patrolling phase, from October 29 through November 7, the personnel of the national contingent ensured the navigation security in the defined areas of the Gulf of Aden and completed intensive training of the ship crew and special team, as well as monitored the maritime transport.

The crew members are pleased with combat flagman service; they stress that this job is heavy but very honorable as they accomplish the state mission.

In the Djibouti port, the crew executed the ship logistic support. Hetman Sahaidachnyi will participate in counter-piracy operation until January 2014.
