    It’s a big target, it’s hard to miss. I remember that our Egyptians wanted to sell the Varshavyanka to the Egyptians, but it didn’t work out, they liked the German submarines. Now, if the Lada project had been brought to mind in due time, then, as you know, Russian submarines might have been based in this boathouse.

      - Of course, you need to take note of this point, but now the descendants of the pharaohs are among our friends. And with the Germans - only competition, enough to fight.

    A covered boathouse measuring 302 meters by 85 meters is a trifle, compared to the backup canal of the famous Suez Canal, which the Egyptians were able to build in just one year, in August 2014 they began to build it, and on August 6, 2015, the traffic on the canal was inaugurated Suez-2, parallel to the first, thanks to this, it was possible to ensure two-way traffic of ships on this channel. This increased Egypt's revenues from $ 5,3 billion to $ 13,2 billion.
