The destroyer “Dragon” of the Royal Navy of Great Britain has arrived in the Odessa seaport for training operations.
The plan of the visit is to hold a protocol meeting between the delegations of the navies of Ukraine and United Kingdom, joint ship training aboard a British destroyer, as well as joint training at sea of the “PASSEX” type: an exercise done between two navies to ensure that they are able to communicate and cooperate in times of war or humanitarian relief.
The Royal Navy destroyer “Dragon” entered the fleet in early 2012. On each side of its body there is an image of the red Welsh dragon, the national symbol of Wales. This is the only ship in the Royal Navy to be decorated in this way.
