It is reported that cadets of the Naval Lyceum and the Naval Academy of Ukraine will board the destroyer. In turn, the Italian sailors will demonstrate the Ukrainian “pride” - “Hetman Sagaidachny”, which, due to the constant need to be involved during the exercise, or when receiving NATO guests, can not get up for the planned repair.

It is known that the Italian visit to Odessa will last until September 7. On one of the days of the visit, Italian and Ukrainian sailors will make a boat ride to the place of death of the Italian ship Rakkia to lay wreaths on the water in memory of the dead sailors. The ship hit a mine on the traverse of the Bolshifontansky lighthouse.

From the official Italian chronicle (published by the newspaper "Black Sea Lighthouse"):
9 July 1920, the destroyer “Carlo Alberto Racchia” sailed from Constantinople to Odessa, escorting a convoy from the steamers Calvi, Melpomene and Talia, on which there were 14 thou. monarchy ... At 11 in the morning hours of 21 in July, when Racchia was 9 miles south-west of Cape Fontana and 19 miles from Odessa, the ship was blown up by a mine, possibly Turkish. After 40 minutes after the explosion, left by the crew on orders, the ship sank at a depth of 11 m, and the survivors were raised to Calvi. The loss of the Rakki crew amounted to 10 dead and 9 injured. After several unsuccessful attempts to return the wreckage, the ship was excluded from the list of the Italian Navy in 1922.

Luigi Durand de la Penne is the name of an officer (combat swimmer), Lieutenant of the Italian Navy, who sank the English battleship Queen Elizabeth and the destroyer Jervis during the Second World War.

    There is no fleet, but there is naval fraternization with foreigners.
    Conclusion - the main banquet.

      Not this way. The main thing is people. In 1948, at the beginning of the War of Independence, Israel had tankers, gunners and pilots, but there were no tanks, no guns, no planes, and by the end of 1949 we already had a tank brigade, several divisions and squadrons. With the improvement of the economic situation, Ukraine will be able to buy weapons, and personnel must be trained today.

        Odessa is a Russian city. NATO and Nazis from Ukraine booth on Russian land. Maybe only Jews can have independence? Can't Russians? Italians don't learn history? They have little sunken Italian ships off the coast of Russian?
        For the gifted, I emphasize I am talking about Russian people. Not about a country called Ukraine in which Russians, Ukrainians, Hungarians, Jews and other peoples live, but about Russian people living in these parts for hundreds of years.
        Now the EU, the USA and in this regard, Israel do not want to see a Russian person there. And their reluctance is called freedom of democracy.
        The main thing is people.
        what kind of people are you talking about? About the invaders? Can you recall the local population? Or is this not accepted in Israel?

          I’m exclusively talking about the logic of Ukrainian sailors, who continue to train personnel for the Navy practically without a fleet.

            Aron, how much time does it take to build a destroyer and prepare a team and how much to build a tang and prepare a tank crew? This time. two. Why did they stick with us to compete in a tank biathlon?

              Yes, because their Merkavas are quite slow. Maybe they are accurate in shooting. But, in speed they even give way to Chinese tanks.

                According to Israeli data, on an actual battlefield under anti-tank fire, firing to suppress and forced maneuvering, the average tank speed does not exceed 25 km.

        Ukraine will be able to buy weapons while improving the economic situation, and personnel must be trained today

        Dear Aron,
        1) Improving the economic situation in Ukraine is not necessary not only for the Europeans themselves, but also for other countries. Because no one needs competitors.
        2) Ukraine does not buy, it maximum - tyrit. Since if there is money to buy, then they quickly diverge between "their friends."
        3) It is impossible to prepare personnel "in general". They are prepared for a specific technique.
        And you can take a look at a working galley. On the "Sagaidachny" and this is a curiosity.

    Although the Italians were still cunning, he himself met in Germany on the autobahns with "lost Italian tourists" who wanted to sell the "family ring". But valuable things, when visiting the "Ukrainian sailors" on the ship, it is advisable to hide well.
