28
The grouping of ships of the Russian Navy near the coast of Syria will remain in the same combat force, now it includes more than 10 ships and support vessels, reports RIA News a message from the representative of the parliamentary group on Syria to the State Duma deputy from Sevastopol, Dmitry Belik.


The fate of the group of the Navy off the coast of Syria after the withdrawal of troops


Recall that on Monday, Vladimir Putin ordered the withdrawal of a significant group of forces from Syria in connection with the completion of the main phase of the hostilities against terrorists. This will affect first aviation (25 units), military police, military sappers and doctors.

Russian ships are a maritime position boundary for combating international terrorism. Provocative attempts by militants of the IG (grouping prohibited in the Russian Federation) of landing troops cannot be ruled out, and the Russian fleet in this case is a powerful deterrent. Therefore, the ships will remain in the Mediterranean as part of a permanent operational connection,
told Belik.

According to him, the Western coalition conducted reconnaissance in the interests of the militants, "disguised them with the legal term" opposition "and tried to stop the aircraft of the VKS from striking the terrorists."

If we withdraw our ships, what will prevent them from chartering ships for militants and landing troops in the Tartus area? Thus, our warships are an anti-terrorist line of defense from the sea,
added Belik.

      In Tartus, a normal base should be done instead of the repair shop and refueling point.

            These are large ships.
            Russia has “afloat” now 14 first-class surface ships.

              Why ships of the 1st class in Tartus?
              Enough brigades of diverse forces. Russian corvettes (modern) are able to successfully withstand a large group of large ships.
              And along the coast they will work just as well.

      At a briefing, a representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense said:
      - The presence of our fleet in Syria contributes to stability in the region and the fight against piracy.
      What did Western journalists respond to:
      “But there are no pirates there !?”
      - For this, and no.
      The representative replied.

    Tartus and Hmeimim will help us with this.

    There will always be ships. Instead of hanging out on the high seas, if they had enough space, they could safely be in the base and go on patrol.

    There is no full base there. There is only a logistics point. Where can a pair of frigates enter. And the fate of a full-fledged naval base in Syria (about 30-40 ships and ships, including our aircraft carriers cruisers and submarines, plus an airfield on which up to 4 regiments for various purposes could be based) was decided by the father of the current president of Syria. Offended by the USSR’s reaction to Syria’s invasion of Lebanon, he simply “destroyed” this project and banned the use of the current PMTO for several years

      That's right, Vladimir, but now there is an opportunity to transform Tartus into something more than just a PMTO, to make a full-fledged support base for the Mediterranean naval group. Plus, in what century, there was the possibility of air cover for the connection with Khmeimima. To do this, it is enough to transfer the base (in whole or in part) to the Navy. But it seems that nothing of this will happen. Some people in the Kremlin have nothing else except their own ratings.

    ... RIA Novosti reports a message from the representative of the parliamentary group on Syria State Duma deputy from Sevastopol Dmitry Belik.
    And where does some Belik, even if he is a deputy from Sevastopol? No one else could comment on this situation? As for the anti-airborne and anti-sabotage defense, it is organized primarily on the coast, and in the coastal (littoral) part of the coast. sad

    Putin has submitted to the Duma an agreement to expand the Navy base in the Syrian Tartus
    The president introduced the Russian-Syrian agreement on expanding the territory of the naval technical support point in Tartus for consideration by the lower house. Earlier, Vladimir Putin announced the withdrawal of "main Russian troops" from Syria

    President Vladimir Putin introduced to the lower house of parliament the agreement concluded by Russia and Syria to expand the territory of the logistics point of the Russian Navy in the Syrian port of Tartus. The corresponding document is posted in the State Duma database. It also involves resolving the issue of calls by Russian warships in the territorial sea, inland waters and Syrian ports.

    The agreement, as specified in the document, was signed by the Russian and Syrian Defense Ministers on January 18 in Damascus. It was based on the "mutual desire" of the parties "to strengthen and develop military cooperation." “The location on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic of a logistics point for the Russian Navy meets the objectives of maintaining peace and stability in the region, is defensive in nature and is not directed against other states,” the agreement also notes.

    From the third approach: what will be the withdrawal of the Russian group from Syria
    POLICY
    Damascus, according to the document, “expresses consent” to the expansion of the territory of the logistics base of the Russian base by Moscow, and also advocates “the development and modernization of its infrastructure for the repair, replenishment and rest of crew members”. The maximum number of Russian warships that are allowed to be simultaneously at this base is 11 units, the agreement says.

    Their entry into the territorial sea and inland waters of Syria, as specified in the document, should be carried out "after the commander of the material and technical support point of the authorized body of the Syrian side notifies no later than 12 hours, and if operational need arises, for six".

    Upon ratification by the State Duma and the Federation Council, the agreement will be valid for 49 years, and after the expiration of this period it will automatically be extended for subsequent 25-year periods, “if neither party notifies the other in writing at least one year in writing party about the intention to terminate it, ”the document says. Joint facilities will be used by the Russian side at no cost.

    Putin flew to Hmeimim air base in Syria and ordered the withdrawal of troops
    POLICY

    According to Franz Klintsevich, First Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security, the logistics point of the Russian fleet in Tartus could in the future become a full-fledged military base in Russia. He stated this in an interview with RBC. “Our presence in this region is extremely important, the situation there does not calm down,” Klintsevich noted, adding that “the very presence of the Navy [Russia] and the air presence carries a deterrent.”

    “I hope that in the future Tartus will become a full-fledged military base,” the senator said. “As a guarantor of stability in Syria, Russia defends its interests, and our presence is an argument in solving complex international issues of the military-political aspect, as well as the prevention of possible conflicts and quick response to them,” he concluded.

    Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense, Yuri Shvytkin, in turn, told RBC that, in his opinion, the presence of a Russian military base in Syria would allow, if necessary, to deploy a group as soon as possible to deliver a corresponding attack on terrorists. “We know that this point [of the logistics of the fleet near the port of Tartus] is of strategic importance for our country and for the Syrian Arab Republic,” he noted, explaining that the purpose of this base is “to prevent various manifestations [from the representatives banned terrorist organization in Russia] Islamic State.

    POLICY
    “In addition to the military [point], it has political significance for our country,” Shvytkin added. The presence of the Russian military base, in his opinion, “will sober up the hot heads of the United States and its allies regarding possible provocations on their part.” “Unfortunately, the US-led coalition apparently proposes to extend its stay as intruders. We cannot leave the fraternal Syrian people in a situation that would not preclude the penetration of terrorists from any other state and their auxiliary assistance from the United States, ”the deputy concluded.

    Earlier, on December 11, Vladimir Putin visited the Hmeimim airbase in Syria. There he announced the defeat of the “most combat-ready group of international terrorists” and instructed to proceed with the withdrawal of the “main body” of the Russian military contingent from the republic. In the Federation Council, RBC later explained that, despite this, partly the Russian military presence in Syria would still remain. In particular, according to senators, Russian aviation (bombers, fighters and attack aircraft), as well as missile defense systems, will remain in the republic.
