Shamanov: Russia will develop a presence in the Mediterranean

90
Russia is returning its military presence in the Mediterranean, where it has not been there for a long time, and will develop its plans there based on national interests, said Vladimir Shamanov, head of the Duma defense committee.


Earlier, French expert Alain Rodier, in an interview with Atlantis, expressed the opinion that in the future Russia hopes to complement existing military bases in Syria with facilities in Egypt and Libya. According to him, first of all Moscow is interested in the deep-water port in the Libyan Tobruk. He also believes that the port of Tartus should be modernized: there it is necessary to create conditions for the entry of ships with a large displacement, which so far have been forced to anchor.

Shamanov: Russia will develop a presence in the Mediterranean


Russia what it wants, such and will have plans for its presence (in the Mediterranean region - approx.), Which will be aimed at defending national interests
- Said Shamanov, commenting on the agency this publication. He stressed that such plans will be drawn up on the basis of Russia's interests, and not with the permission of the West.

According to him, the Western world "does not like that we are returning to the Mediterranean zone, where we have been absent for a long time."

Therefore, we will make efforts and increase them
- added Shamanov.

As for the specifics about the plans of Russia's military presence in various regions, this is secret information. You understand that all these questions relate to state secrets, who will tell you about it?

      After reading the article, prophetic words recalled many, many years ago by Pushkin were recalled:
      "We will face the Swede;
      Here the city will be laid.
      To spite the arrogant neighbor;
      Natural here we are destined
      To cut a window to Europe
      Become solid with the sea;
      All flags will visit us -
      And we’ll lock up in the open. "

      We’ll just not warn the Swedes, but NATO and its southern partners!
      And so everything in the subject!

      Still in Syria to build a shipyard, and ships there not only repair, but also build! Helicopter carriers, for example!

      But it would be nice. The final assembly shipyard is modular. Install modules in Russia in indoor workshops, transport to the Syrian Federal District, assemble there. All year round summer! Though dreams, but good things.

        It’s a great idea, and then you can cover the flight deck with Lebanese cedar. Even the ancient Phoenicians and wise Egyptians knew that there was no better material for these purposes, and the proximity of Lebanon hinted that it would be possible to acquire this invaluable material in large quantities and practically for nothing . Wooden minesweepers are also a promising topic))).

              As I understand it, the decision was made to develop the PMTO in Tartus on such a scale that it was possible to service and repair all ships up to the Kuzi. That is, they will definitely expand opportunities. So, having done all the costly work, you can in Russia (assemble the modules, assemble the power plant, cable networks, etc.), and then overtake the modules in Tartus for final assembly. When in Russia winter and work on large vessels come down to formal readiness maintenance. Why not? The PMTO staff should have the specialists and equipment necessary to carry out work of this level (to fix holes, replace the casing, change the screws in a different way). Is this all for 1,5 Black Sea Fleet ships that are constantly located in the Mediterranean Sea? It was their (capacity) simple that would be a squandering.
              Modular assembly is the most optimal and CHEAP. There are many examples - the English "Elizabethts" in a row collect SEVEN shipyards, "Ford" and "Zumvolt", the Australian "Canberra". “Mistral”, in the end, drove much further.
              Then the meaning of Khmeimim will be preserved. And you can entrust PMCs directly with security.

    Everything is decided by the president and us. And the Central Bank. When choosing between the IMF and the Russian Federation, the Central Bank and pr-in, especially the Ministry of Finance, will choose the recommendations of the IMF, and not the interests of Russia. So far we live.

    Maybe it’s necessary ... Let me remind you of the events of almost 40 years ago. The scene is still Syria. At the helm - all the same Assad (only father). Relations between the USSR and Syria are the most excellent. The USSR supplies mass weapons to fraternal Syria. And it turns out that PMTO is already ... not enough for us. A joint agreement was adopted that we are building a naval base and an airfield in the vicinity of Latakia. The base was supposed to take up to 30 ships, including airborne cruisers, to have huge fuel reserves. Up to 4 regiments were to be based at the airfield, including long-range reconnaissance aircraft, PLO aircraft, and fighters. But 1982 is coming. Assad-father, contrary to the opinion of Soviet comrades, invades neighboring Lebanon. Soviet comrades express their displeasure. And do you know Assad’s reaction? He not only put a very big and fat cross on this base, but also forbade us to use our PMTO for several years. Therefore, before building something there (generally in the Middle East, and not just in Syria). It is necessary to think very well and use not so much fraternal relations as draconian conditions when concluding such agreements.
