Ukrainian Navy Ship Completes Patrolling, Joins EU Navfor

The Ukrainian Navy ship, Hetman Sahaidachnyi, has returned to the port of Djibouti having completed its sixth patrolling and presence in the Ocean Shield operation.

The ship ensured navigation security in the Gulf of Aden from October 12, 2013 through January 2, 2014.

Hetman Sahaidachnyi spent 47 days patrolling the Gulf, investigated 10 suspicious ships and completed 14 friendly approaches to local fishermen.

The ship joined EU Navfor on January 3rd, as part of Operation Atalanta.

EU Navfor mission Atalanta aims to protect the World Food Programme (WFP) ships delivering aid to displaced persons in Somalia, and ensure safety of AMISOM shipping. The ships within the mission operate in the South Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden and a large part of the Indian Ocean, including the Seychelles.
