  • Description

    A SOVIET UNION FISHING FLEET, COMPRISING A MOTHER SHIP AND ABOUT 20 FISHING BOATS, HAS ARRIVED IN BEIRUT HARBOUR ON A VISIT TO LEBANON. THE FLEET ARRIVED UNANNOUNCED AND IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN FOR A WEEK.

    THE FLEET IS ONE OF SEVERAL BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN OPERATING IN MEDITERRANEAN WATERS RECENTLY.

    SOON AFTER THEIR ARRIVAL, SEAMEN FROM THE FISHING VESSELS TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO ASHORE, WHERE THEY BOUGHT GOODS AND TRINKETS FROM THE LOCAL TRADERS.

    SOVIET FLEETS HAVE BEEN ACTIVE IN THE EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN FOR SOME MONTHS AS THE COUNTRY'S FISHING INDUSTRY UNDERGOES EXPANSION AND REMODELLING.

    MODERN SOVIET FISHING VESSELS ARE EQUIPPED WITH ALL TYPES OF NAVIGATION AIDS, AND THEY RANGE FAR SEEKING THEIR CATCH AND SHOWING THE RUSSIAN FLAG.
