Russia returns two frigates from the Mediterranean Sea at once

Russia returns from the Mediterranean Sea two frigates of Project 11356 at once - Admiral Makarov and Admiral Essen, and the ships are returning to Sevastopol. This was reported by the press service of the Black Sea fleet.


At the same time, two frigates of the Black Sea Fleet began the passage of the Dardanelles and Bosporus straits in the direction of the Black Sea. Frigates "Admiral Makarov" and "Admiral Essen" return to the main base of the Black Sea Fleet, the hero city of Sevastopol from the far sea zone

- said in a statement.

The frigates "Admiral Makarov" and "Admiral Grigorovich" joined the Russian squadron at the end of February this year amid escalation of hostilities in the Idlib province of Syria, where the Syrian government army and pro-Turkish groups collided with the support of the Turkish military. The same type frigate Admiral Essen has been performing missions in the Mediterranean since December 2019. Thus, at the end of February, the Russian fleet gathered all three frigates of Project 11356 as part of a permanent group of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea, although usually these ships serve one at a time, replacing each other.

Currently, the frigate Admiral Grigorovich, who will later be replaced by Admiral Makarov, remained in the Russian squadron.

Admiral Essen and Admiral Makarov are the first and second serial frigates of project 11356, respectively (the lead ship of the series is Admiral Grigorovich). Built at the Baltic shipyard. Displacement of about 4 thousand tons, speed - 30 knots, sailing autonomy - 30 days. The frigates are armed with Caliber-NK and / or Onyx cruise missiles, the Shtil-1 self-defense missile system, the 190-millimeter A-100 artillery mount, anti-aircraft artillery, rocket launcher, torpedoes, and can also carry the Ka- 27 (or Ka-31).

    Let's just say, the everyday life of our not very large, modern fleet.
    True as it is. And then we'll see how events will develop.

      Nothing in the second quarter of 2020 will complete the repair of the cruiser Moscow. After all, 16 RCC Volcano is a formidable force for the Black Sea. Again frigates of the 22350 project will also be based in Sevastopol, as I understand it.
      In the second quarter of 2020, repairs and restoration of technical readiness of the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet - the guards missile cruiser "Moscow" project 1164, code "Atlant" will be completed. This was reported by TASS a source in the ship repair industry.

      Indeed, everyday life, but let me remind you that our fleet returned to the oceans, if my memory serves me, in 2007, by the way, like strategists began to patrol the sky on an ongoing basis! Yes, our fleet is not Soviet, but the fleet is a very expensive toy and it is already great that Russia returned our flag to the sea on an ongoing basis! And until 2007, it mostly rusted at the quays ... Our squadron in the Mediterranean is ours and all our sworn "friends" in this region are already taking this into account!

        squadron ??? ... returned ??? ... but not really ...
        Grigorovich, essen with Makarov, they don’t even pull on a full-fledged brigade, even taking into account the rook, minesweeper and auxiliary ... except maybe on KUG or KPUG ...

        Let's after the events! We, hopefully so far, have nothing to return. While it appears, sometimes, in transit on their own business ...
        In principle, after the disaster that we experienced as the beginning of the return phase .....
        Let's see in short, there are too many ambiguities in our country.

        There are options. Ships, by any means, need to return to their shores, enter their bases.
        This is the decision of the leadership, and there we will see what and why.

          It would be nice to accompany the "Academician Chersky" to the place of laying the "Nord Stream-2".
          And then God forbid any "well-wisher" trying to interfere.
          Does he have an escort?

      The era of battleships ended about 100 years ago. You still remember about sailing galleons.

    A fleet is still a structure, a structure of ships of different classes and purposes, which complement each other in the performance of assigned tasks, not only quantitatively but also qualitatively.
    Therefore, a pair of ships that go somewhere, or planes that fly somewhere, is called: to indicate their presence. This is not yet an ocean fleet and it is not yet capable of conducting autonomous military operations.
    The tasks of such a fleet are to restore the lost combat experience in the ocean and to develop a new one, until the time when it grows quantitatively, with the latest ships and planes of all classes.
    Therefore, today it is important, as Comrade Lenin said: -Learn, study and study again.

    This means that Shoigu told Assad not to rock the boat in the near future in Idlib against the Turks. Therefore, potential support is being taken away.

    Correctly, the crew of these small ships after an exhausting chatter should be allowed to rest the ships repaired to replenish the supply of food and water, well, and probably ammunition.

      There are few ships, tasks must be completed. Unfortunately, the crews are not allowed to rest.
