The Azov, a Russian Black Sea Fleet combat ship, is to visit Israel for the first time.

This visit will take place ahead of celebrations in honour of the 68th anniversary of the victory in WW2. The visit was arranged at the initiative of Israeli war veterans’ organisations.

The programme of the visit includes concerts of the Black Sea Fleet band and performances of the Honour Guard Company for war veterans and residents of the Israeli port of Haifa.

The ship will be open for local people’s visits.
