The Russian Navy warship Admiral Tributs anti-submarine destroyer opened its doors to Filipinos during its goodwill visit in the country. Members of the Russian Navy welcomed visitors to  explore how their warship looks like. 

 The ship, named after Soviet naval commander and Admiral Vladimir Filippovich Tributs, is a 6,930-ton Project 1155 Udaloy I-class anti-submarine warfare destroyer originally built for the Soviet Navy.

The warship, which is one of two Russian vessels docked at the South Harbor in Manila, includes the KA-32 anti-submarine helicopter, anti-ship missiles, and torpedo launchers among its arsenal.

This goodwill visit is part of the Philippines’ direction to open partnerships with Russia and China.

Here are highlights of the public visit to the Russian destroyer.
