(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Ukrainian frigate Hetman Sahaydachnyi, participating in the NATO Ocean Shield counter-piracy operation, recently arrived at the Port of Salalah to replenish supplies, after completing its fourth anti-piracy patrol of regional waters.

According to a release from the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence, a busy ten-day patrol of regional waters saw the vessel assist in maintaining maritime security, receiving on one occasion Commodore Henning Amundsen, commander of the NATO Ocean Shield tactical group deployment to the region.

Hetman Sahaydachnyi arrived at the port on December 4.

Meanwhile, a suspected pirate skiff opened fire on a merchant tanker in the Gulf of Aden on December 9, according to a report issued by the International Maritime Bureau's Piracy Reporting Centre.

The report stated that five armed pirates opened fire on the unnamed vessel, while the ship's master contacted UK Maritime Office in Dubai for aid, and activated defensive counter measures to prevent boarding.

An embarked security team on the tanker fired warning shots resulting in the pirates aborting the attack.

A military helicopter subsequently arrived at the location to patrol the area.
