Venezuelan Navy ship collides with a cruise ship: sailors open fire


A video of an incident involving a patrol ship of the Venezuelan Navy GC-23 Naiguata dated March 30 appeared on the network. Military Review previously reported that about 13 nautical miles from La Tortuga Island, a Venezuelan warship tried to ram the Resolute cruise ship, which was drifting in the Caribbean during engine maintenance.


RCGS Resolute was flying the flag of Portugal. The liner is designed for cruises to the shores of Antarctica, which is why the ship has a certain ice class.

Apparently, the Venezuelan sailors did not know about this and decided to go to the RCGS Resolute ram in order to force them to follow the patrol ship. The captain of the cruise ship was given a message about the illegal presence in the square of the Caribbean. As a result, the Resolute received minor damage, and the Naiguata patrol ship sank.

The video, which has undergone some adjustment, shows that the sailors are using a Kalashnikov rifle, shooting in the direction of the liner. Then the collision of two ships is shown.



Venezuelan authorities provided a graphic representation of what was happening in the La Tortuga region of the Caribbean, claiming that the perpetrator of the incident was RCGS Resolute captain:


The company-owner in response states that the vessel did not commit any violations, and the crew wonders why the Venezuelan sailors opened fire and why it took to ram.

          This is most likely not that Tortuga. There are several islands with the same name.

          A drifting vessel moves with the speed of water movement and cannot in any way crush a boat running perpendicular to it. Either the boat wagged stern, at that moment when it had already hooked its nose on board, or the liner still moved, and did not drift.

              Maybe. If the border guards tried to make bulk, then substituting the boat under his nose is not the most reasonable solution. I did not notice strong pitching on the video, so I did not attach any importance to this. hi

    And to be honest, I represent the bewilderment of the Portuguese sailors. Drift themselves quietly, mend the engine, and in the dark, someone shines with flashlights and shoots from the machine. Then the rattle of metal and the SOS signal on the air ... The captain spits out a sheet of coca, perplexed asks the boatswain - and what the hell was that?

          The Don watchman was significantly larger than the Yana Kapu tug ....
          But the tug hull lining is designed to work in bulk, while the guard has to contain the wave. The result is known - the tugboat is floating and Don is being repaired. So here, the liner hull set withstands a meeting with the ice, while the patrol boat is not designed for such loads.
          In a word, I'm not talking about the size of the ships, but about the thickness of the sides and the set of frames ...

          Just a couple of years after this event, the great country of the USSR was gone, and American sailors from Yorktown drank vodka in Murmansk. At the beginning of the 25s, the inscription on the board was cut off from Bezavezentny, torn off like sticky paper and sold for scrap metal to hostile Turkey. March 2005, 12 the ship from Sevastopol brought the tug. Due to the blood-red color of the meerk of the hull and black spots where the weapons used to be, the "Selfless" looked like a wounded beast. On May 2005, XNUMX, far into the sea, the "Bezavezhetny" quickly tipped to the starboard side and began to sink under the water, as if someone had discovered kingstones. "Heart to the Motherland, life to the sea, honor to no one."

        The situation is not there. The project 745P watchdog is built on the hull of the Project 745 tugboat, it is an ocean rescue tug. With the ice class, by the way. A curious steamer, albeit small. Ram like that just right.

    Not enough information to determine who is right there and who is to blame. It’s not even clear what kind of area it is so special, where it was said and how many miles were from the coast. In any case, ramming a passenger ship to a warship is somehow not quite right, and the actions of the Venezuelan Navy commander were not very professional. After all, you can see the ship is larger, in FIG you climb under the nose of the liner ...

    When it appeared on April 1, I was sure it was a joke, it sounded so implausible.
    Torguga is a part of Haiti, located very far from Venezuela.
    The Venezuelan patrol ship has nothing to do there, moreover, he didn’t care about the Portuguese ship standing there in international waters.
    But it turns out true.
    Moreover, it is now becoming clear that the patrolman didn’t ramp, which in itself, taking into account the difference in the maneuverability of the ships, looks like a joke, but on the contrary, the Venezuelans tried to ram the liner.
    At the same time, it was reported that the incident was near the island of Aruba much closer to the Venezuelan coast, but Aruba is the Netherlands, not Venezuela.

    https://twitter.com/Simon85205764/status/1245083568013008896/photo/1

      .... who would explain this muddy story ...


      Indeed, the story is muddy ... It seems that Venezuelans had good reason for their actions regarding this cruise ship. Two points, the first is the statement of the Venezuelan military:

      ..... Resoulte arrived without permission and stayed in Venezuelan waters for 2 days, according to their own story recorded in an audio recording,
      - the crew ignored the instructions of the coast guard, which suggested that they land on Margarita Island for verification,
      - refused to recognize the instructions, despite the fact that in the audio recordings they recognized that they really were in Venezuelan waters without permission,
      - instead, they resumed their journey to Curacao in full force.
      - the crew of RCGS Resolute at the time of the collision turned off its AIS system, becoming invisible to control and only moored in Curacao after 24 hours, although there was only 5 hours of travel.


      And the second, muddy story with the owners of the vessel:
      The Canadian company One Ocean Expeditions specializes in organizing polar cruises chartering 2 Russian ice-class research vessels Akademik Ioffe and Akademik Sergey Vavilov. In October 2018 One of the Ocean Expeditions from the German luxury company Hapag-Lloyd Cruises takes the Hanseatic vessel, renamed RCGS Resolute, for a long freight.
      The financial problems of the once prosperous One Ocean Expeditions began in 2019.
      In 2019, the Russian research vessels Akademik Ioffe and Akademik Sergey Vavilov, previously chartered at the Institute of Oceanology named after Shirshova, were unexpectedly recalled.

      A further series of arrests of this cruise ship, etc.

    When on the first of April, it was written about the collision of ships 7 miles from the island of Tortuga, I knew a little about geography, I was very surprised that Venezuela’s patrol ship does there at all. It was reported that Venezuela said the clash occurred in the territorial waters of Venezuela. Here, in general, my amazement knew no bounds, as I wrote in the commentary. But one of the commentators put a minus. I’m sitting and thinking it’s an accidentally uninjured sailor from a Venezuelan patrol vessel? repeat

    Sergei! There, in that region, 2 islands with the name Tortuga. One is 7 km north of Haiti, the second is about 80 km from the coast of Venezuela.
    If the Venezuelan ship collided with a cruise ship 13 miles from the coast, then it is outside the territorial waters of Venezuela (they have 12 miles).

          If they drifted and had no course, then the Venezuelans' fault is obvious
          So they had, since something is being discussed

    The company-owner in response states that the vessel did not commit any violations, and the crew wonders why the Venezuelan sailors opened fire and why it took to ram.

    Did the RCGS Resolute captain hear anything about other people's territorial waters, or was he all on the “Portuguese drum”?


    who drifted in the Caribbean during engine maintenance


    Accidentally drifted in them, judging by their message.

    Существуют многообразные сособы сообщения о бедствии. Если капитан круиза писал это только в Инстанграме, то это его вина. Пограничники, конечно, сделали не правильно. Бить нужно было не в борт, а в корму, где руль и винты. По крайней мере, подвиг был бы более заметен.

      All normal people attract attention on the radio on channel 16. If they do not answer, then with a blank shot from the main three-inch squeak. Immediately discourages the desire to ram. If, nevertheless, it shows aggression, it is already possible to sandalize combat on the bow or stern.
      And firing automatic weapons into the air is not serious. These shooters could be mistaken for some wild gopniks in the dark. Ramming such a live is a completely understandable decision.

        If you need to meet quietly, then you won’t be on the air yelling at the whole forest. They came up, identified, knocked AK that theirs, and let's dock.
        Maybe they wanted to convey "with the conductor"?
        Maybe the liner was waiting for them there, "sorting engines"

          If you need to meet in a quiet way, they’ll throw off the coordinates of the rendezvous point, and then both go to this point.
          But on the other hand, a modern ship already glows in all types of radio signals. If the patrolman sees on the radar a ship with the AIS and LRIT turned off, then he will immediately be puzzled by the question "what the fuck ??" Yes, just if you suddenly turn off the LRIT, there will be questions for the emergency services of the nearest states. Like "where did he go, drown something?"

            Performed?
            Let's fantasize:
            The liner enters the area, lays in a drift (picking engines) and waits. Let's say the nozzles are coked, all services are calm, nothing needs to be disabled and no encryption is needed.
            Comes "postman Pechkin with the parcel." He also does not need to be encrypted - he is at work.
            The liner is easy to identify, but Pechkin must prove that he is the same. Do not balamutia ether. Here he appears on the stage of AK.
            Then they try to dock, and .... disaster. Yes, bulked by the wind. Someone did not convey something, well, okay - everyone is alive.

              In this case, the parcel will be brought not on a combat patrol, but on a fishing schooner. Which without a pale can stray strange courses in all sorts of unexpected areas. To which no one will pay attention, they are like dogs uncut. Not like a ship with guns. On which the people are smaller, and easier to overload. And you can honk without a shot, and shine with a flashlight. Moreover, the portable ratiere is listed as part of the mandatory equipment.

                But there are no objections on the liner yet? Strange he hung out there ...
                Move on:
                In this case, the parcel will be brought not on a combat patrol, but on a fishing schooner.

                So a guard was needed. We only fantasize ...
                Suppose it was necessary not to transfer a ton of dope, but to remove from the liner a group of people in a voluntary-forced manner.
                What will be in the captain's report? "The fishing schooner handed over to" stall, "sent a boat with an inspection team that arrested the passengers" ...

        Judging by the scheme, the Venezuelans didn’t want to ram, but something like a pile, but they missed and went under the ram, not?

          According to the video, the liner’s nose went aboard the guard rather slowly. From this we conclude that the liner was without a move. But the guard also seemed to be without a move. Perhaps landed on the RIB inspection team. Perhaps distracted by this, and did not notice how the wind piled on. The wind is quite strong, splashes in front of the camera fly almost horizontally.

      It would be funny if it were not so sad.

      Whoever would say or write in the reports, the Venezuelans showed that there was zero shipbuilding, they didn’t study shipbuilding, they weren’t friends with geography, they used weapons with a fright ... ... I couldn’t foresee the consequences ....

      Friends, damn it ...

    Remember how selfless Yorktown rammed in 1988. The sizes are nothing, shoulder straps oblige.

    As far as I understand, there was a bulk with lowered anchors to tear the skin. Here, on the contrary, it seems like the side was bodied and the patrol liner rammed. This is some kind of anti-ram)

    About the "broken engine" of course crap is complete and obvious. He stirred up something there.
    But Venezuelans phenomenally altogether substituted. <Censored> has a drifting ship !!! (Administration, sorry, but I do not have a single decent word to describe this event). You can see on the vidos that the airliner did not have a move at the time of the collision, the guard was trite with the wind.

    "And to be honest, I imagine the bewilderment of the Portuguese sailors. Drift yourself calmly, mend the engine, and in the dark, someone lights up and shoots from a machine gun."

    These are not Portuguese sailors. The ship just goes under the Portuguese flag. The crew is Ukrainian.
    All mainly from Odessa. Captain too.
