Expert: Russia's teachings in international waters are legitimate

Russia has the full right to use international waters to test its ships, and the reaction of the British Minister of Defense to the presence of the Admiral Gorshkov frigate near the territorial waters of this country is hysterical about Russia's increasing presence in the world's oceans, said the leading Russian military expert, chief editor of Arsenal Fatherland "Colonel Victor Murakhovsky.

Expert: Russia's teachings in international waters are legitimate

Earlier, the British Navy reported that they accompanied the Russian frigate “Admiral Gorshkov” when it passed near British territorial waters in the North Sea. "Admiral Gorshkov" is now passing the final stage of state tests and regularly moves between the White and Baltic seas. At the same time, British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson said that "he will not hesitate to protect British waters and will not tolerate any form of aggression."

This is a ridiculous statement, because international waters are therefore called international - because they are provided for any ships and vessels, for different countries. Accordingly, Russia has the full right to test or navigate its ships in the world’s ocean area, including off the coast of Great Britain.
- said Murakhovsky.

He also noted that there are territorial waters of the state, which can be crossed with the appropriate permission, but Russia does not violate this order.

As for the reaction of the Minister of Defense of Great Britain, this is a hysteric caused by the increasing presence of Russia in the world ocean. We somehow forgot about it. At the stage when we were weak militarily, this was not the focus. I want to note that during the Cold War, this is often heard. Now it's coming back

    Does anyone doubt the international waters and their status and try to grab them to their territorial waters? We will have to recall the law of the sea.

      "with regard to the reaction of the British Secretary of Defense, this is a hysteria caused by the growing presence of Russia in the oceans." said Victor Murakhovsky.
      .. Lying on a bit of Comrade Murakhovsky. I carefully read the statement of the Secretary of Defense of Great Britain. There is not any hysteria there, an ordinary statement. Our warship passed near Britain, the English destroyer politely "escorted" him. What is Murakhovsky excited?

      The "exceptional" and their mongrel are convinced that international standards are not written for them. I recall the words of Sukhorukov from "Brother-2":

    For some reason, they, the West, believe that only they can conduct the exercises there. Self-doubt rolls over, and it must be broken off as much as possible and possible.

    “Without hesitation, we will protect the British waters, we will not tolerate any form of aggression” - this is the trepidation of a frightened person. At first they frightened their population with Russian aggression, and now they themselves are afraid to hiccups and diarrhea.

    You are absolutely right. The British hysteria is clearly out of place here. Russia has the right (as in other countries) to conduct exercises in international waters. But there is one small but.

    Here at VO many support Una’s tantrums when he threatens with a fist at once to 2-3 countries for conducting exercises in international waters. He considers this almost an act of aggression, and many in this at the HE fully support him. So let's use not the double standards in our assessments, but the existing ones. Namely - MARITIME LAW. and I, comrade, are completely in solidarity here - Russia does not violate anything in its right

    Using marine terminology, the word EXPERT is complex, consisting of the words EX and PERT. “Perth”, again, in maritime affairs, denotes the cable along which sailors move along the yards during manipulations with sails. So "expert" is a man who visited the river during a storm and knows why a pound of dashing. Is it interesting that Murakhovsky himself walked around the pen or simply appropriated this name for himself?

    And I personally recalled this joke:
    There is an exam at MGIMO. The student answered his ticket. But he is given an additional question.

    - You work deep. serving in one of the countries of Africa. You receive a note of protest from a local national leader that a surfaced Soviet submarine scared away all the fish, and now the USSR must compensate for all the damage. The task is to write a response note.

    The student sits, writes, then hands over a sheet with the answer. The professor reads, puts the sheet on the table.

    - Well, my dear, I see, you know the subject, the rating is “excellent”, but there are a few mistakes. “Nah ...” is spelled together, “in ... y” - separately, “for ... you are” with a soft sign, and “black ... solder monkey” is written with capital letters. Somehow inconvenient, nevertheless, you are addressing the national leader.

    is hysterical
    And if this hysteria came only from England, but she, like a lost mash, rushing from the USA with her slurps. I don’t want to admit myself to be not “omnipotent” for a long time. But the time will come and you have to agree with that.
