Greece RGS Expedition

The frigate "Shtandart" ("Standard") leaves the port of Myrina on the Lemnos island, in the waters of the Aegean Sea, Greece. The expedition "Flame of Chesma. The Greek Gambit" of the Russian Geographical Society, following in the footsteps of the First Archipelago (Aegean) Expedition (1769-1774) of the Russian fleet to the Eastern Mediterranean, explores the islands of the Aegean Sea which were part of the Russian Archipelago province formed in 1770 after the defeat of the Ottoman Fleet in the Battle of Chesma, and the underwater area where ships of the Russian fleet were based, and subsequently destroyed.
