On the training and production vessel Professor Khlyustin, located on the roadstead in the seaport of Vladivostok, a solemn formation was held and thematic events were organized with the participation of cadets. All the vessels were decorated with flags of coloring. The victory horn was also sounded on the sailing training vessel Khersones.
The fleet of the Azovo-Chernomorsky Basin branch joined the event in almost full force – about 50 vessels sounded a horn.

May 9 is a national holiday that embodies the strength and unity of our people, the power and greatness of our country. Many sailors of the civil fleet and port workers made an invaluable contribution to the Victory, ensuring the maintenance of uninterrupted operation of transport communications during the Great Patriotic War.

The vessels of the museum, as well as the United Shipbuilding Corporation, the Northern, Black Sea and Baltic fleets take part in the action annually.
