The aircraft carrier "Charles de Gaulle" after the repair, it was decided to send "to the side" of China

77
The French Minister of Defense (since 2017, the position sounds like “Minister of the Armed Forces”) Florence Parley made a statement that did not go unnoticed in China. According to Ms. Parley, after the repair of the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle of the French Navy, he will be poisoned for combat duty in Southeast Asia, where he will patrol the waters of the east of the Indian Ocean and the "middle" north-west Pacific. In China, it was decided that if the macro region, which Parley claims to be on the world map, be outlined, then the patrol routes of the French aircraft carrier will largely follow the contours of the People's Republic of China.


The aircraft carrier "Charles de Gaulle" after the repair, it was decided to send "to the side" of China


According to Florence Parley, the overhaul of R91 “Charles de Gaulle” (not the first one in the last few years) is planned to be completed in 2019. It should be recalled that for the implementation of repair work the aircraft carrier of the French Navy was put into dry dock in the port of Toulon in early February last year. In September of this year, he returned to sea for the necessary tests.

Chinese journalists asked the Minister of Armed Forces of France why the French aircraft carrier should not be doing combat duty somewhat closer to the French coast, and received the following answer:
It is very important for us to ensure the freedom of navigation in international waters. France stood and continues to defend international maritime law, which is not subject to any restrictions.


The Chinese media commented on such plans of the French fleetcalling the decision of France to choose a place of "patrol" strange and adding that France is trying to show itself as "a great maritime power, in fact, not being such a long time."

        French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle completed scheduled maintenance - the cost of work amounted to 1.3 billion dollars. The return of the ship to the operational cycle is scheduled for early 2019.

      Did the French grind? Compared to Napoleon - no doubt. But present-day Russia is far from being a Russian empire from the time of Napoleon. Objectively, the French economy is larger than the Russian one in all respects. We can only dream about their standard of living. As for the military component, Russia is incomparably stronger than any European country. But they do not need to measure with us one by one. They have a collective defense of the NATO bloc led by the United States. But they still built their own nuclear carrier. Their Rafali planes and ships are in demand in the world. And in general, the French defense industry is among the leaders in terms of development. The French, unlike most European countries, continue to develop their military-industrial complex, not relying on the Americans, which indicates their foresight.

              -USA was unpleasantly surprised by our defense industry in Syria-

              But he didn’t make a jerk. He used the Soviet remnants. At the Syrian bridgehead, the Russian Armed Forces met with an enemy not equipped with aviation, fleet, electronic warfare equipment, without regiments equipped with tanks and MLRS.

              -Now the situation in the country is much better .-

              Even five million jobs did not work out of the 25 million promised. Millions of guest workers and other denominations, unable to work even on old Soviet and foreign machines, arrived in the shipbuilding and aircraft industry.

          Riding on the Soviet legacy and on Soviet projects has ended. Particularly, things have fallen tightly in the electronics industry, aircraft manufacturing, shipbuilding, shipbuilding, the automotive industry, ship repair. The French Republic is an important Chinese trading partner. With a turnover of more than 40 billion euros. Cute swear, only amuse. France don't worry too much about the PLA invasion.

              Well, you still remember Napoleon ... Something tells me that today's Russia against NATO, if anything happens, will hold out no longer than France against Nazi Germany. Since in modern Russia there is absolutely no idea that can unite the majority of the population. If there is a mess - and the "patriots" will immediately start yelling something like "everything for the front, everything for victory", while they themselves will not strike a finger to actually do something for the front, "businessmen" will start yelling about the state order for goods for "our army, bravely fighting an insidious enemy," while they themselves raise prices for their goods, and the proceeds from the state order will be quietly withdrawn to the Virgin and Cayman Islands, the "liberals" will raise a howl that martial law violates human rights and call to stop shooting at each other and urgently recognize all the conditions of the West and end the war provoked by "Putin's regime of crooks and thieves", and this very regime should be handed over to an international tribunal. Well, the "Putin regime" itself (or what will remain of it by that time, since with such "gentlemen" as the commander of the Rosguard, or FSB officers who have enough brains to ride around the city in motorcade of helicopters on the occasion of graduation from an educational institution, enemy saboteurs can feel completely safe) will be worn like a chicken with a severed head and their idiotic orders to drive Russia deeper into the ass. Or you think that those who make up this very power are like the ever-memorable minister from the Oryol region who thinks that you can live well on 3,5 thousand rubles. in a month, or an official for work with youth from Sverdlovsk who believes that the state owes nothing to anyone, are able to effectively lead the country in a crisis situation, if they even do not have enough brains to keep their mouths shut? And to be honest, all Putin's statements about "why do we need such a world in which there is no Russia" are nothing more than regular horror stories. Well, I don’t believe that Putin will be allowed to press a button if it comes to vigorous loaves ... Most of our "elite" in the west have kids living there, they have houses there and other property acquired by "back-breaking labor" ... And for all this will you order them to throw a vigorous loaf? Do you believe it? Russia for them is nothing more than a feeding trough, and the common people are a kind of biomass which you can rub in anything you like, and which is unable to convey to the authorities their dissatisfaction with the actions of these very authorities.

Suffice it to recall the arrest of our SENATOR Suleiman Kerimov. Although the charge against him of "money laundering" has been dropped, there is real estate worth € 400 million.

                      Ha and again ha ... And who will pass this law? These same senators Kerimov? Directly bees against honey, yeah ... until the population goes to rallies of millions with the demand to adopt such a law, nothing of the kind will be adopted. And it will be adopted, so these same senators and other Caucas, one devil will figure out how to get out, because someone must also follow the execution of the law - and in our "elite" they wash their hand ... Like we do not notice that you have a baby with they live "over the hill" with their wife, and you will vote for the budget in which the necessary articles of state spending are spelled out ... In general, until the majority of the people take the top by the balls, as it was in 1917, there will be no changes.
                      As for your previous answer
                      Do you remember the history of the 1st world? And then what rallied? But if not for the revolution ... how would the whole thing turn?

                      I was guided by the history of the First World War when I wrote that there is no idea in Russia around which the people can rally - in the first world there was such an idea, but it did not imply the preservation of "autocracy, Orthodoxy, nationality" (I mean communism) ... And just during the First World War, what I wrote about was revealed - while the soldiers were rotting in the trenches, officials and businessmen profited from government orders and behaved in Petrograd and other cities as if there was no war - they squandered in restaurants thousands of rubles for oysters and wine (despite the fact that the "dry law" was officially introduced during the war, but who cares when the soul wants a holiday?) and led a riotous lifestyle. And the soldiers of the reserve regiments who lived in buildings not adapted for housing (in St. Petersburg, for example, they lived in arenas, as far as I know), and who were not even allowed to walk on the sidewalks with other "clean public", they all saw it perfectly, and therefore did not burn especially the desire to go to the front lines. And the authorities did not take any particular measures to change the situation. I think now it will be the same - some will die at the front, while others will eat caviar in restaurants and hang out in clubs ...
                      Concerning
                      Well, she is no longer in power ... it is clear that she has somewhere to settle down, the benefit is that relatives are not ordinary teachers, engineers, hard workers ...

                      This is the one that Oryol is not in power, but the one that is from the Sverdlovsk region, tk. her daddy has some kind of a big bump, and a boor too, in general, they are trying to hush up the situation with her in every possible way and release the whole thing on the brakes - recently a message appeared that it seems like a check is being carried out on the fact of spending it is not clear what this "civil servant" 131 million in my opinion but a day later this information disappeared from the website of the investigative committee. In general, everything goes to the fact that they will transfer this character to another responsible job and the matter will die out on this. So if you have influential relatives and friends, you can do whatever you want.
                      but if the powers that be are smart enough not to limit themselves, they will survive, because in the West they are not needed, too ... because they do not need these "wearismen" there, but qualified specialists, scientists ... and so on.

                      Regarding the "lawlessness" of those in power - do you seriously think that they will be smart enough for this after the adoption of the pension reform? And the fact that no one wants them in the west is understandable - but going back to the example of the First World War - do you think those princes and counts who in emigration, after the revolution, worked as taxi drivers in Paris, understood this at one time? So modern "gentlemen" do not really bother about it. For most of them, the main problem is how to grab more until you are kicked out of a warm chair, and to jerk over the hill until you are arrested here, there is no time for thinking that if anything, they will be wrapped up in the west and thrown out dig into the trash heaps. And this is at best ...
                      And as for
                      And the last ... you wrote so that even now fold your hands into the grave ... are you ready or identity to the west, and then where have you decided if you already have to die in Russia?

                      I have nowhere to run, but I'm not going to fold my arms. But you don’t want to look at the existing reality through pink glasses, otherwise you can be very disappointed when the time comes.

            In addition, what do you mean by the word development? You compare the metro metro in Moscow and Paris .. Something tells me .. Nizhny Novgorod will be steeper than Parisian .. Maybe the distribution network LTE? Oh .. there only tomorrow they promise the main routes to cover .., I drive along the M8 .. to Arkhangelsk .. 4G everywhere. After breaks only in the most remote places .. where the bears only.
            And to me, as a carrier ... Let Renault go to the northern highways ... and Kamaz go there. The only sensible diesel 6ts 12l they received in cooperation with Volvo.

            I'm not talking about roads in Paris and Moscow .. holes in the middle of the road in the French capital are not uncommon .. Even sleeping areas are licked in Moscow ... a relatively bad road can be found in industrial zones ..

        Did the French grind? Compared to Napoleon - no doubt. But present-day Russia is far from being a Russian empire from the time of Napoleon. Objectively, the French economy is larger than the Russian one in all respects. We can only dream about their standard of living. As for the military component, Russia is incomparably stronger than any European country. But they do not need to measure with us one by one. They have a collective defense of the NATO bloc led by the United States. But they still built their own nuclear carrier. Their Rafali planes and ships are in demand in the world. And in general, the French defense industry is among the leaders in terms of development. The French, unlike most European countries, continue to develop their military-industrial complex, not relying on the Americans, which indicates their foresight.

And about the army - well, this is your obvious mistake, look at how many countries are still under the actual military protectorate of France.

        Well, about nuclear energy, a controversial issue. Yes, they have a certain number of nuclear power plants, and quite large, but they were built in the 70-80s. And since then they have not built anything new, only exploited. If you are interested, read the epic with the construction of a nuclear power plant in Finland by the French company Areva. Extremely interesting. The short conclusion of this story is that since the time of the construction of their nuclear power plants, the French have lost most of the technologies necessary for this construction, from this point of view, Rosatom has been constantly building something almost since the collapse of the USSR looks very solid. And about astronautics - I don’t remember that the French had it manned, but I will not argue, they launch satellites, but again, quite rarely, otherwise there would be no point in starting a story with the construction of a launch pad for Russian Unions in French Guiana
