Russian ships in Philippines to deliver military equipment

Men and women of the Philippine Navy stand at attention while a Russian Navy ship docks at Manila South Harbor on Friday.

No details were mentioned on Friday about the donated equipment, but Duterte earlier said Russian Federation would provide 5,000 assault rifles to the Philippines.

Shoigu will be joining next week's meeting of 10 Southeast Asian defense ministers with counterparts from other countries, including the US, Russia and China.

Lincuna said the Philippine and Russian Navies have lined up a series of "confidence-building" activities, including shipboard tours, goodwill games, a wreath-laying ceremony and send-off ceremony with the customary Passing Exercise.

Russian Pacific Fleet's warships arrived at the capital of the Philippines - Manila - for a visit as part of the military cooperation program between two countries, Russia's Pacific Fleet spokesman Captain 2nd Rank Nikolai Voskresensky said.

On Thursday night, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte referred to Russian President Vladimir Putin as his "good friend" in a speech before businessmen.

Moscow's gift would follow China's donation of more than 6,000 assault rifles and 100 sniper rifles, among the fruits of Duterte's efforts to form partnerships with two arms-producing powers that are rivals to the United States.

"We will have the Kalashnikov", he said in a speech to troops, adding that Russian Federation wanted to keep the donation secret. "Russia fully supports (the Philippines) in the struggle against terrorism", he said.
