Spending of the British fleet on escorting an aircraft carrier group of the Russian Navy

28
On the basis of the data obtained, the British media report how much the taxpayers of the United Kingdom cost the interest of the country's military to the operation of the Russian aircraft carrier group off the coast of the Syrian Arab Republic. We are talking about a group led by the aircraft-carrying cruiser "Admiral Kuznetsov" of the Russian Navy, which, together with several other ships, is returning to the basing point.


Spending of the British fleet on escorting an aircraft carrier group of the Russian Navy


According to the British edition The News, for only one operation to escort the ships of the Russian Navy fleet up to 1,4 million pounds (over 100 million rubles) were spent from the defense budget of Britain. This amount, according to the journalists of the publication, includes funds spent on fuel for the British ships Duncan (destroyer) and Richmond (frigate), as well as on monetary allowance of personnel. At the same time, it is stated that information about the costs of the operation was requested from the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom on the basis of the law on free access to information.

At the same time, there are no data on the expenditures of the British submarine fleet (for obvious reasons), which was also involved in “escorting” the Russian aircraft carrier group, which was held in neutral waters - near the area of ​​responsibility of the naval forces of Albion.

By the way, it should be noted that we are talking about the estimated costs of the British treasury for escorting Russian warships so far only “in one direction”. Therefore, spending the British, apparently, will have to multiply by two.

    Well, what kind of news is this - sort of ravaging Britain?

    Stupidity!

    Taxpayer money spent on training to track a potential adversary.

    Naval exercises, skills development, etc. etc.

      Nonsense. The money (up to £ 1,4 million was spent) was spent on trying to show that the situation is under control and Her Majesty’s fleet is still afloat.

      Yeah, a strange article.
      I read it and thought: poor British sailors, there wouldn’t be this training trip to accompany the Russian cruiser, because even these sharks of imperialism would not have paid their salaries.
      So at least follows from the article.

        You can launch "Kuznetsov" around the world around the British Isles. Let the English sailors receive regular salaries.

          Then the minimum grocery basket for us will cost 1000 rubles per month! Well, this is in the sense that they will be told that with these funds it will be possible to live "comfortably", and moreover ... "to eat high quality Russian delicacies" wassat

    The French have already refused. And these are still fluttering. They "see off" and on the way back. They want to show their professional aptitude to the owner and allies.

      But in my opinion it’s a good idea to keep track of how people's money is spent. If the information is not secret, then it is asked, why should it be kept secret?

        This is what I like in the West, if not completely, but on the whole you can find out about the spending of certain funds. You pay taxes and you can track their spending in places. Yes, in the civilian sphere we have the opportunity to trace, but in the military sphere there is darkness or data or fairy tales tell.

    It was necessary to put these bookkeepers on Kuznetsov’s deck in order to calculate how much the trip cost. They would be surprised. And you have to pay for the surprise.

      Yes, it’s not so much if one proceeds from -This amount, according to the journalists of the publication, includes funds spent on fuel for the British ships Duncan (destroyer) and Rind (frigate), as well as on monetary allowance of personnel. - what is the cost of a country gas station fuel? Yes, and monetary allowance, as I suspect ours is much less yes

    The army is generally a costly thing. A bunch of healthy men are sitting, they are not doing anything, they are getting a salary. And as soon as they begin to move, exercises are carried out there or some kind of operations abroad, so money flows like a river. Maybe it will be cheaper to feed someone else’s army? All of Europe feeds.

    In my opinion, it is masochism to observe your own powerlessness for that kind of money.

    1. It was with such calculations that the collapse of our army in the years 80-90 began. If this issue is popular in Britain, then the end of its fleet.
    2. The crew’s cash allowance is a constant thing, regardless of how fast the ship is sailing, maintenance costs too. Again, the limits on fuel - now walked, then rest. Warships are not built so that they, like Aurora, stand at the pier.

    Logically, the next piece of news should be about how much the "Kuzntsov" campaign cost. Why are Russian taxpayers worse than British ones?
