Chinese media published a series of photo essays on the ongoing circumnavigation of the Jinan squadron destroyer (Jinan, tail number "152") of the 052С project. To date, the ship at the head of the compound, which also includes the frigate Yiyan (onboard number "548") of the 054 project and supply vessel Qiandaohu (on-board number on "886") of the 903 project, has already visited 11 of foreign ports. The round-the-world trip was preceded by the participation of the compound in the operation to ensure shipping off the coast of Somalia. As part of the practice that has developed in recent years, the Chinese actively use visits to foreign ports for the purposes of public military diplomacy, organizing ship visits by representatives of the local population. As a result, quite detailed photo reports from the board of the Chinese destroyer were published.
