Recently, goodwill visit was made by a Russian anti-submarine warship that coincided with the Carnaval International de Victoria. According to ambassador Mikhail Kalinin, this visit was a sign of the strong relations between Russia and Seychelles.

On March 19, during the carnival, the warship was open to the public, which was only the 2nd time a Russian warship had called in Port Victoria port since October 2009.

Bilateral talks between Kalinin and Vice-President Danny Faure focused on the ways to further boost relations between Russia and Seychelles. Kalinin said: “Ways to strengthen naval and military ties between the two countries were also discussed, and it was agreed that a Russian military attaché will be accredited here soon”.
