The Russians are coming! Missile cruiser Varyag docking in San Francisco today

In a goodwill tour, a part of Russia's Pacific Fleet (guided missile cruiser Varyag, rescue tuboat Foty Kasatonov, and tanker Boris Butoma) will arrive in San Francisco today.  They will be under the Golden Gate Bridge at 1pm and dock at Piers 30 to 32 at 2pm.  The Varyag will be open to visitors on Thursday between 10 and 3.

Here is a history of the two Varyag predecessors.
