Visit to Nakhimov Naval Academy

July 29, 2018, St Petersburg

After the Main Naval Parade, Vladimir Putin visited the Nakhimov Naval Academy of the Russian Defence Ministry.

The President toured the academy’s new multi-purpose building with modern classrooms, laboratories and gyms, and learned about the cadets’ living conditions.

Rear-Admiral Anatoly Minakov, head of the academy, updated the President on forming a unified system for teaching, educating and organising recreation for the cadets who receive training both in St Petersburg and in the academy’s branches.

Vladimir Putin emphasised the need to get the most skilled teachers, including civilian specialists, involved in the education process.

The Nakhimov Naval Academy of the Russian Ministry of Defence was established in 1944 during the Great Patriotic War. Its cadets receive general secondary education and special naval training. The Academy has three branches – in Murmansk, Sevastopol and Vladivostok.
