PM 56

According to navytoday.com website, The Russian floating workshop PM-56 returned to her homeport Sevastopol.

From August 2011 till January 2012 she was in Mediterranean to maintain the activities of Russian Navy’s task force.  The rumor is she has spent time in Tartus harbor, Syria.

I was able to take the above photo of her, during her deployment cruise on 13th August 2011.

Being deployed in the Mediterranean, the vessel maintained activities of Russian Navy’s task force.
To provide security during the cruise, PM-56 had an anti-terror group and boarding party consisting of BSF marines.
