Frigate Black Sea Fleet "Admiral Makarov" arrived in Corfu to participate in the "Russian Week"


The frigate of the Black Sea Fleet "Admiral Makarov" arrived on the Greek island of Kerkyra under the flag of the commander of the Black Sea Fleet, Vice Admiral Igor Osipov. The crew will take part in the annual events of the Russian Week, held in memory of the great Russian naval commander Fyodor Ushakov, whose squadron knocked out Napoleon’s troops from the Greek island of Kerkyra (Corfu) in 1799 and liberated the other Ionian islands. The events will last until October 2.

According to officers from the crew of the Russian frigate, the visit of the ship aroused great interest among the Greeks. If on the day of arrival the ship was visited by a little more than 200 people, then on Sunday morning in the first hour only about a hundred visitors visited the frigate. People go with their whole families, with children, on the ship, officers conduct excursions along the upper deck, talk about its weapons and characteristics.

We have a Russian ship here. Tomorrow I’ll definitely go see. Last year, the Russians did not come

- said a local resident, adding that he visits Russian ships every time they come to the island.

Recall that after the liberation of the Ionian Islands by the squadron of Fyodor Ushakov, the Republic of Seven Islands was formed on their territory, the first Greek state created after the fall of Constantinople in 1453. The republic included the islands of Kerkyra, Paxos, Lefkada, Kefalonia, Ithaca, Zakynthos and Kitira, it lasted seven years from 1800 to 1807 for a year under the cover of the Russian fleet, after which it passed under the French, and then the English protectorate, where in the 1815 year it lost independence.

          So all the Gospels known today were also written by the Hebrew Apostles. And also the "Bible of the Communists" - "Capital" is the same written by the Jew Marx. And I recommend you not to use Facebook. hi

      Good deal! Memory is holy! of course . Moreover, in our country he was counted among the saints. and not only him. there is also St. John of Russia on Evbia, in the village of Prokopi. and there are still monuments not only to F. Ushakov. Mount Athos has many relics of royal dynasties and naval officers. in 1905 even Athos wanted to give custody of the Russian squadron. in all seriousness ... the tsarist fleet and so the Aegean Sea often visited, even the paintings of that time were preserved, on one destroyer St. George the Victorious at the pier of St. Panteleimon on Mount Athos. the British all their lives, Russian dirty tricks suit. it’s the British who mischief, and substitute others. Mol yourself understand, we need a weak Russia, and not you. cynically and brazenly .. so they say later, we need not you and your country, but a weak Russia.

          I got it. It is necessary for the Greeks to say that they are Slavs! They’ll be surprised. So many thousands of years of Hellenic civilization, and the fact that they, it turns out, the Slavs, will learn for the first time.

    Russia should develop relations with Greece. This is a country close to us and we have a common history.

    Cooperation between Russia and Greece will be beneficial to all of us.

      Russia should develop relations with Greece.

      That's the way it is.
      But such a relationship should be on both sides. While Greece is in the EU and NATO, nothing will come of it. The Greeks themselves are not masters.

        The Greeks, too, on my mind! Remember, a couple of years ago they had a crisis? And their Prime Minister Tsipras began to run into Moscow while telling the whole EU (especially Merkel) that Greece was about to become Russia's best friend. So what? He dumped the EU Tsipras several billion euros and all. Tsipras about the Russian Federation did not even remember.

      Can develop relations with the withdrawal of American bases? How many of them are Greek brothers, three or more ...
      Ships are the only port in the region that can accept aircraft carriers. In May, the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier went there. The base is at the limit of operational capabilities for many years, sources from The Wall Street Journal noted earlier. Therefore, the authorities are considering the prospects of building a new base in southern Crete to deploy special forces after the deployment of US unmanned aerial vehicles MQ-9 in Larisa.

      Yes, we are already cooperating, that in our power, wherever we can .. are always cooperating. pilots came to us and sailors came in, and so tourists on yachts have long since come to the islands since the nineties. Cyprus is full of Russian private property. I even worked with pilgrim groups on Mount Athos and Meteora at one time. We cooperate normally ... if it’s not enough for someone. Come, see what issues and what concern them, and think about how to solve them. when it is necessary to land on the shore, Russian ships always call at our ports. no limit by the way. Athos can always send a submarine. the sea is deep there, pester where there is also. maybe you don’t know, but there is a Russian monastery on Athos. and there were still possessions in Palestine. Russian lands, Bought. Khrushchev killed them for a penny .. gave it to Britons, changed it to oranges ... well, he didn’t reach Athos. and so in Egypt and Palestine Khrushchev squandered the land ... old, bald, Khrushchian.

    The eternal question: when will our "fathers-commanders" deign to let their compatriots into their own Russian ships ?! Or is there something to hide? What prevented from organizing excursions on the Day of the Navy in St. Petersburg, and not necessarily on the Day of the Navy? In Kronstadt, the pier with the destroyer and MRK was completely closed! And without any explanation! In general, since my service, nothing has changed: abroad - please, at home - you can't! How many times had to pull some dark-haired "excursionist" out of a secluded place by the scruff of his neck - like they are interested! In terms of the time spent by foreigners, the Russians were several times inferior.

    She does not affect anything. Greece sits head over heels in debt from the European Union. Yes, twenty years ago she bought from us * Comets *. Then * Bison * even. What is she able to buy today? ...

    ... it lasted seven years from 1800 to 1807 under the cover of the Russian fleet, after which it passed under the French, and then the English protectorate, where in 1815 it lost its independence.
    Under the terms of the Tilsit Peace Treaty, in September 1809, the Bay of Kotor, the bases of the Russian army and navy on the Ionian Islands, along with the remaining ships and ships, were given to the French. The Russian fleet, without the slightest benefit to its country, lost almost the entire squadron of the Mediterranean Sea, for 9 years of military operations in the Archipelago with the French and Turks that have not lost a single ship - more than 35 warships (including 13 battleships and 5 frigates), more than for all the wars of the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries combined.
