The nuclear-powered strategic missile submarine cruiser (Project 885A, Borey-A) Knyaz Oleg and the nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine (Project 885M, Yasen-M) Novosibirsk, having made the inter-fleet transition from the Northern Fleet to the Pacific Fleet, have arrived at the place of permanent deployment in Kamchatka. The nuclear-powered icebreakers covered a considerable part of the nearly 5,500-mile route under the ice of the Arctic.

During the sea crossing of the complex arctic expedition Umka-2022 the nuclear-powered submarine Novosibirsk in the above-water position launched the anti-ship cruise missile Onyx from the waters of the Chukchi Sea against a marine target.

In Vilyuchinsk the nuclear-powered cruisers were met by the commander of the Pacific Fleet`s submarine forces, vice-admiral Vladimir Dmitriev. He received a report from the commanders of the submarines on the completion of the Arctic inter-fleet transition and congratulated the submariners on their arrival at their permanent location.
