The Celebrations for the 130th anniversary of the Bulgarian naval fleet begin in Ruse.
The schedule includes an official ceremony, laying of wreathes in front of the Monument of the sailor and a concert by the brass orchestra of the Naval forces.
For a week, the Naval forces will commemorate their anniversary with laying of wreathes and waving of flags in all seaside municipalities. The climax of celebrations will be at the naval station in Varna.
The rear-admiral in command Plamen Manushev said that the priorities of the Naval forces are under extensive review due to the financial crisis.
“We won’t, however, skip the participation of the frigate “Drazki” in the drill to assemble a military group for fast reactions of NATO, and we won’t skip the participation in the operation “Active Endeavor”. We also have to certify the mine-sweeper “Priboi” at the naval drill by the NATO team”, stated he.
