BOD "Vice Admiral Kulakov" conducted another convoy of ships in the Gulf of Aden

Today, a large anti-submarine ship (BOD) of the North fleet (SF) “Vice Admiral Kulakov” completed escorting the second caravan of ships from the Arabian Sea through the Gulf of Aden to a designated point in the Red Sea. The second caravan included merchant ships under the flags of Malta and Liberia.

On May 25, the BOD Vice Admiral Kulakov crew will have to replenish the supplies of everything needed from the tanker Ivan Bubnov. After that, in the planned area of ​​the Red Sea, a new caravan of ships will be formed for pilotage along the “safety corridor” in the opposite direction, through the water area of ​​the Gulf of Aden.

The material and technical part of the large anti-submarine ship of the Federation Council "Vice-Admiral Kulakov" is in good repair and is functioning normally. The crew of the Russian BOD is healthy and ready to carry out the tasks assigned to ensure the safety of civilian shipping in its designated maritime zone.

BOD of the Northern Fleet "Vice Admiral Kulakov" left the main base of the Northern Fleet 6 April. During his campaign, he already left astern more than 9000 nautical miles. In April, the BOD Vice Admiral Kulakov made a business call at the port of the Court (Greece), where the officers of the ship and a group of marines received a unique opportunity to visit the multinational training center for maritime special operations. Severomorsk people shared their experience of anti-piracy with foreign colleagues and conducted a series of practical training sessions. On April 29, as part of a detachment of ships of the Russian Navy formed in the Mediterranean, the BOD Vice Admiral Kulakov passed the Suez Canal and entered the Red Sea, and 14 in May began fulfilling the tasks of protecting civilian shipping in the Gulf of Aden and posting the first caravan ships.

            Such a decision can cost them dearly.
            A completely different question - what is happening INSIDE inside - in Syria. How can Russia help in the fight against the Oranzheviznaya? Do not send your OMON there!
            They - themselves - must solve their internal problems - as in China - they rolled the discontented along the pavement with tanks - silence with peace came. At us - OMON kneads them.
            Something like that.

              Iran has not been bombed yet only because if Iran ceases to exist as an independent state, then the formal reason for building a European missile defense system disappears. If Iran is no longer a threat, then why is it being built? Russia will be able to ask at the official level. And officially (!!!) to change their military doctrine without fear of being branded as the aggressor in the entire "civilized" world, and the Americans really do not want this.

          about the good news - the first and last is not entirely fresh, of course, but nevertheless, for example, I didn’t know wink


          Construction of new shipyards started in the Far East



          During a meeting on government defense procurement issues in shipbuilding in Severodvinsk, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin announced the start of construction of the Vostok-Raflls and Zvezda-DSME shipyards in the Russian Far East.
          According to him, at present, buildings of enterprises are being built, and work is "in full swing".

          The construction project is implemented by the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) in cooperation with foreign partners:

          it is planned to build the Zvezda-Dsme shipyard together with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. on the basis of Far East Plant Zvezda OJSC
          the second company, the Vostok Raflls shipyard, will be built in conjunction with Singapore's Yantai Raffles Shipyard Ltd.











          200 hectares, 40 months, $ 720 million: a new shipyard will be built in Kronstadt.



          Construction of Novo-Admiralteyskaya Verf on the southern coast of Kotlin Island will begin in 2012. On the territory with a total area of ​​more than 250 hectares, it is planned to build a modern full-cycle shipyard, capable of building dozens of ships per year both for Russia and for export. Now one of the main activities of the United Shipbuilding Corporation as a customer is the coordination of the necessary documents with the administration of St. Petersburg.



          Well, even this year the Krondstat Naval Cathedral was restored

          I could not help but lay out - very cool photos

          In Kronstadt, the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, Cyril, performed the rank of minor consecration of the Naval Cathedral in the name of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker. The patriarch recalled that the restoration of the cathedral was very difficult and thanked everyone who helped revive it.





          The temple was founded by decree of Emperor Nicholas II in 1903 in honor of the 200th anniversary of the Russian fleet. The cathedral was built 10 years according to the project of the architect Vasily Kosyakov and was consecrated in 1913. This is a monument to all the ranks of the Russian fleet. Until 1927, services were held here. Then the cathedral was closed. In 2009, a decision was made to rebuild the temple.

Is there a government there that controls the entire territory of the country? - No, as I understand it. That is, this is a territory of a civil war with several "governments".

    In order to end the pirates, you must use the method of Marshal Zhukov. According to Zhukov’s plan, to cleanse Odessa of gangsters, state security officers and scouts changed into civilian clothes, pretended to be drunk, litter money, and in every way made an impression of easy prey. The bandits pecked. And when they began to attack, they received a bullet in response. Thus, the problem was solved. The same can be done in those places where pirate attacks are constantly taking place. We launch a civilian ship at sea, and the crew is made up of professional military personnel. We lure the pirates, during the attack we open fire on them for destruction so that no one remains alive. And thus it is possible to solve the problem of piracy at sea.

          Yes, the fight against piracy is not cheap. But security is more expensive. Moreover, nothing enhances crime so much as impunity.

          As they say, if you want to live, you’re not getting so excited! And in my opinion the problem needs to be solved differently!

      Uv. Stasi, most likely such methods will not solve the problem of piracy? Yes, and no one in the world was and is not going to decide. So sometimes, they chase pirates for show, it's like the world fight against drugs. The so-called "pirates" seem to have very big patrons. Someone really needs a problem with piracy, but why the question!

        Dear Vladimir 70! In my opinion, this method is the only way to deal with pirates. Think for yourself, will the pirates attack if they can open fire on them in self-defense? The answer is obvious. If resolved in international law of the sea, the problem of piracy will begin to disappear. Piracy is no different from terrorism. Among the methods of combating pirates, you can add the agent method, the introduction of agents in their environment. As for the influential pirate patrons, you are absolutely right, history also knows such examples. For example, England as a state secretly supported the pirates, and for this they shared their prey and helped eliminate competitors. So the answer to why piracy is needed is obvious.

          Yes, someone secretly supports the pirates, but it seems to me that mining is not the main thing here.

          Dear Stasi., These patrons will not be allowed to move the international law of the sea - they will cut off the consensus. And the existing law is also toothless ... Use it to the fullest if you can fry reptiles too! am

      Serious shipowners hire an armed support group to cross the pirates' activity area. We had 5 people on board. Senior Croat, two Ukrainians, Russian and Moroccan. The armament is serious. A PC machine gun, two RPKs and two AKM 7,62 assault rifles. They should have been transferred to the oncoming ship, but there was a failure. They threw weapons and ammunition overboard in front of the port. We went ashore without any problems. This method for them in the order of things. When approaching the feluccas, they went out on deck with all the weapons. They gave a short burst upwards, and the feluccas at maximum speed went towards the horizon.

      STASI, I can tell you that the "Zhukov method" is unlikely to work. Nobody will let you do this, because the whole business of rescuing crews from captivity is run by very serious guys from the country of foggy Albion. Exactly a year ago, I passed the Gulf of Aden twice in a month, then through Indian Ocean to the port of Cochin (in the south of India). In the Gulf of Aden there are a lot of fishermen who use the same "Scythian" boats as pirates, sometimes they are practically indistinguishable. Pirates were distinguished by the presence of light ladders, clothing - Somalis often wear a kind of long skirts , well, fishermen rarely approach the ship. They went with guards: they went there with the Estonians (three guys and a girl, all who fought in Afghanistan, Iraq), and back we were guarded by the British, also all the warriors. Both of them are armed with automatic screws FN, with reflex sights, cal. 7.62. So, in long conversations with these "warriors" we learned one thing: as the Russian naval officers did with the pirates when the Russian ship was liberated, unfortunately, no one will do this anymore. For our guards there were some then the legal norms, everything was on the verge. The slightest alarm - and the whole crew was hiding in the so-called panic room, equipped in the tiller compartment. Two more crew members had to throw pieces of metal from the wings of the bridge, fire signal flares. This is against pirate Kalash and RPG , well, not nonsense?

        Although ours were fellow countrymen, they did not give any personal information about themselves and the security structure. Contract requirement. But the guys are well trained, they have a great combat experience. They showed how to correctly stretch and fasten the fighter, They talked among themselves in French, It can be seen that they served together in a foreign legion. There were always two people on deck, and we also have a high freeboard and a speed of 22 knots. Which was somewhat reassuring. Of the Russians, they went twice in the Chebanenko convoy.

        Dear Borz, I agree with you. I repeat once again: when attacking pirates, it is necessary to open fire to defeat. All countries that want to stop attacks on their ships should be publicly announced: we will send armed guards in the crew, with the right to use weapons to protect the crew and cargo. And bring it to the attention of the government of the countries where the pirates boss. Which is better - a conflict with the government of such a country because of protection or allow pirates to attack the ship and then pay a ransom? The answer in my opinion is obvious.

          Yes, when attacking pirates, you need to open fire to defeat. BUT! The United States, which positions itself as a world leader in the fight against terrorism and whose courts are also attacked, with all their international authority and the possibility of pressure on the media, human rights institutions, take NO steps in this direction. in the USA. The question is or is everything clear? No offense, of course. In the meantime, we are defending ourselves with the means available to us.

            But what, you have to wait until the Americans start shooting at the pirates when they try to attack, then you can do it yourself? Absurd stupidity, they say once the Americans do not do so then we will not. All these bricks, mannequins and wire fences for pirates are just a hindrance, but not a danger. How can you throw bricks in the face of the threat of pirates shooting? Rave. The only way out is professional guards licensed for weapons. Only then can the ship and crew be protected.

    Good news. But it seems to me that not adequate action.
    If there, as the media assure us, high-speed boats with machine guns and grenade launchers, why a large and even anti-submarine ship.
    Maybe you need something more mobile? Tactics must be changed by our generals.
    And the next thing, sailors, is "surgery", it's time to start prevention.

    Now I read the article, looked at the encyclopedia "The ship was laid down at number 626 on November 4, 1977 at the A. A. Zhdanov shipyard (now" Severnaya Verf ") in Leningrad (although it was enlisted in the Navy's lists back on July 13, 1977). It was launched on May 16, 1980, entered service on December 29, 1981, entered the fleet on February 9, 1982. From November 3 to November 7, 1988, paid a visit to Havana, the capital of Cuba "
    An old steamboat wanders and navigates ships, for thousands of nautical miles from their native coasts, Gorbachev and the drunkard Yeltsin brought the country to the point that we have nothing new, the old Soviet weapons still creak but work, but the most important thing is that we slowly begin to understand this not immediately but gradually COUNTRY changes its course and many do not like it.
    Here's more info on KULAKOV "Military Parity".
    On January 18, the Vice-Admiral Kulakov’s large anti-submarine ship of the Northern Fleet will go on sea trials, the Russian Shipbuilding Portal reports with reference to flot.com.


    In 2000, the ship was transferred from the Kronstadt Marine Plant, where it stood for almost 10 years, pending repair, at the Severnaya Verf shipyard in St. Petersburg. In December 2009, Svetlana Ermolaeva, head of the Severnaya Verf shipyard’s public relations department, said that the repair and modernization of the BOD were almost completed, the ship was docked and moored. To start sea trials prevented the fire that occurred on December 4 in the storage rooms of the ship. In a fire, one person was injured.


    "Vice Admiral Kulakov" is the BOD of project 1155 "Deleted

    The Moskit anti-ship missile is the only combat missile in the world whose flight speed at low altitudes (2800 kilometers per hour) is more than twice the speed of sound. In terms of tactical and technical characteristics, it surpasses all currently existing anti-ship missiles (http://www.testpilot.ru/russia/raduga/kh/41/moskit.htm).
    Only amateurs can characterize such a BOD as an "Old Steamer".
