A group of warships from Russia's Pacific Fleet on Thursday arrived at the port of Manila, where the ships' crew will conduct a meeting with the leadership of the Philippine Navy, a spokesman for the Pacific Fleet Vladimir Matveev said.

"Today, a group of the Pacific Fleet's warships, comprising the flagship of the Pacific Fleet, the Guards missile cruiser Varyag and the Pechenga tanker arrived at the port of Manila (the Philippines). Within the framework of the visit, the sailors of the Pacific Fleet will meet with the representatives of the Philippine Navy's leadership and with the Russian ambassador to the Philippines," Matveev said.
