    More often our "guests" on the American continent would need to go .. Otherwise, the United States is grazing in Eurasia, inciting wars.
    There Chinganchguki still remained and remember how the Anglo-Saxons exterminated them.

      Customs officers discovered 400 kilograms of the narcotic substance in the form of white powder in the port of St. Petersburg. This was reported on June 11 by the Federal Customs Service. The find was made in a container with canned fish from Ecuador. The seized drugs were estimated at 4,5 billion rubles. The smuggling channel was discovered by the employees of the drug trafficking control departments of the North-Western Operational and Baltic Customs in cooperation with the staff of the Main Directorate for Drug Control of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia and the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region.

        Routine. Only this time it was packed with canned fish. Previously, from Colombia and Ecuador, this "joy" came in flowers and bananas. Such "coverings" occur
        at our port regularly. And a coincidence is that in our ZENITH the Colombian (Barrios) and the Ecuadorian (Noboa) are playing now. laughing

          This is just a pattern. What did you mean by "our Zenith"? There is not a single native of our city in the team. Or are you from Ecuador?

    the frigate "Admiral Gorshkov", the logistics ship "Elbrus" and the rescue tug "Nikolay Chiker".

    Elbrus means that the autonomy of the Gorshkov is "not so-so to" .... and the tug .... well, this is a masterpiece.

      Tugboats always and always have escorts, they just don’t see Western media on the screen to exalt themselves, so that citizens like you think how cool it is.

        There is another system - at the request of the nearest US / vassal / ally base (which are everywhere) = a tug will come running.

        They take tugboats only if there is an objective necessity (for a task), actions in the waters of a potentially hostile country (so that if any emergency, push the ship away and faster with their own forces). Or in actions away from the bases - when the time of the tug’s theoretical approach is more normative.

        Tell me, in the case of a sheer, where will this tug pull him? Cruise ships go by the sea-okiyan without any tugboats ...

    Since the start of the campaign, more than 25 thousand nautical miles have already been covered.

    This is almost 50 thousand km. You just imagine it and the storm, etc. !
    Let us all wish them seven feet under the keel and return home with the task completed and without serious damage, etc.
    Russia is waiting for you and praying for you. "There, behind the fogs, eternal drunks .."

        If they wrote that they would continue their journey along the American continent, then rather Cape Horn ... And Venezuela, with a friendly visit. Him in the autumn to shoot "Zircon", already at home.

    the frigate "Admiral Gorshkov", the logistics ship "Elbrus" and the rescue tugboat "Nikolay Chiker" entered.
    We can say "solo voyage". I have a question, but now they don't go without a tug?

    While there is no naval base, any detachment's output will include 2/3 of the support ships. It is worth noting here that in a real combat situation, these 2/3 are weights on the legs of a warship, they must either be thrown and completed the assigned task, or ... cover with your air defense and anti-aircraft defense and dragged along at the speed of a matelot. Therefore, such campaigns are good and useful as military-political measures in peacetime, but are absolutely illogical in real combat conditions. This once again shows that the construction of the Big Fleet must be approached soberly and thoughtfully, and not on emotions like I want "everything and a lot." By the way, every historical approach of Russia and the USSR to the construction of the Big Fleet was ultimately useless in terms of the ocean-going fleet. The Big Fleet of Nicholas II and stood the whole war in the bases and fought mainly old people, such as "Slava", Stalin's Big Fleet did not participate in any naval battle, participating in the war only with artillery, again mainly old battleships and cruisers. The Big Fleet of the USSR was more fortunate in "military-political" battles, but ... only then it had enough naval bases around the world and more or less friendly ports. The builders of the Large Fleet in the Russian Federation should at least take this difference into account in the world situation.
