A naval fleet comprising the domestically manufactured destroyer Damavand will visit Russia in the near future, a navy commander announced.    Rear Admiral Afshin Rezaei Haddad, commander of Iran’s Fourth Maritime Zone, made the remark in an interview with Fars News Agency on Saturday. The warships will dock at the Russian port city of Astrakhan at an invitation of the Russian side. A Russian naval fleet comprising two warships, namely Volgodonsk and Makhachkala, docked at the Iranian port city of Anzali on August 9 as part of joint efforts by Tehran and Moscow to boost maritime relations. It was the third port call by a Russian naval fleet to Iran. The navy also sent two warships to Russia in June 2013 to help consolidate maritime ties with Moscow.
