The Varyag


A Russian warship is docked in San Francisco this week on a friendship mission. The cruiser Varyag has 16 cruise missiles, anti-submarine rockets, a tropical fish tank, and two parrots. The crew will have a cookout with the crew from the U.S. Navy’s cruiser Bunker Hill. In 1863 Czar Alexander II sent a fleet of ships to San Francisco and New York to show support for the Union in the Civil War.
