May 13 - Day of the Black Sea Fleet of Russia

May 13 - Day of the Black Sea Fleet of Russia

Today, their professional holiday is celebrated by sailors of the Black Sea fleet Of Russia. Officially, this holiday appeared in the military calendar of modern Russia on the basis of order No. 253 of July 15, 1996, signed by the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy.


The holiday itself has a much deeper history. And it is connected with a truly remarkable historical event for Russia - the annexation of Crimea to the Russian Empire in 1783. The decree on the creation of a fleet of warships on the Black Sea was signed by Empress All-Russian Catherine II.

The date of May 13 refers to the events of 1783, when a squadron of five frigates and eight other ships (ships) entered the Akhtiar bay. These were the ships of the then-existing Azov Flotilla of Vice Admiral F. Klokochev.

In fact, the Black Sea Fleet received its new birth in 2014 - during the events of the Russian (Crimean) spring. Indeed, then, to be honest, an option was already being considered for the Russian Black Sea Fleet to leave Sevastopol with the subsequent operation of the only military base on the Black Sea - Novorossiysk. Overseas partners of Ukraine have already drawn up plans for deploying their warships in Crimea and creating NATO infrastructure.

However, history has put everything in its place. Sevastopol and the entire Crimean peninsula returned to Russia on the basis of popular will. And the shameful surrender of the city by the then Ukrainian politicians was not destined to take place.

That’s why the St. Andrew’s flag flies today over the ships both at the Novorossiysk Naval Base and in Sevastopol.

Congratulations to the Black Sea sailors, veterans of the Black Sea Fleet of Russia and the USSR on the holiday!

      This is from the history of the Balaklava submarine base. So in the early 70s, rockets were loaded on board a submarine.

    Sevastopol, Sevastopol
    Pride of Russian sailors ...
    And that's it. Not to be a striped-eared base in Sevastopol. And so, the Black Sea will remain the Russian Sea, as in the time of Byzantium.

    Congratulations on the holiday, the emphasis should be placed not only on the importance of the Black Sea Fleet in the past, but also on the exceptional importance of the Black Sea Fleet, returning Crimea to Russia six years ago. This is a special victory.
    importance, its exceptional significance is still not fully understood, but seeing how in Ukraine
    all power in any of its circumstances is completely pro-Bandera, pro-American, pro-NATO and anti-Russian, seeing this there is no doubt that if not a joint feat of the inhabitants of the Crimea, KChF, special.
    units of the army and Putin, today in Sevastopol the US Navy would have stood. And Russia would be torn apart
    religious civil war, because without the Black Sea Fleet and without the control of the Black Sea, Russia
    would not be able to help Assad in Syria, and there the victorious ISIS would flood into the Crimea, raise and stupefy the Crimean Tatars, this would be transferred to the Tatars of the Volga region and to Muslims
    Caucasus. It is terrible to imagine what would happen if the current residents of Crimea, the Russian government and
    Putin personally would not have had the will, courage and farsightedness six years ago to save the KChF and reunite Crimea with Russia. This is what any government eternally dreams of, that is, the unison of the people, government and the armed forces. But as long as history does not recognize the subjunctive mood, what would it be, we can only guess, assuming that everything could even be worse than what I wrote above. Incidentally, Putin was well aware that he was awaiting him for this decision in the international political arena. The isolation and curses of the Ango-Saxons and their curs. But he could have acted like Gorbachev and now universities in Washington and London would have been waiting for Putin with lectures ...
    Happy Holidays to you, Red Banner Black Sea Fleet and Crimea !!!

      Comrade Sever 2, you are right: V.V. had enough intelligence and will, but what if he allowed the slack? We would, for a start, be "blessed" with soft loans. For a while, the townsfolk purred with pleasure: full of Polish apples, Dutch flowers, cheap electronics. And the native commodity producers are a complete ambassador. Two years later, we would have started "fun"
      And now: for cereals, complete import substitution, for fruits and vegetables, from 70 to 90%. I do not know the official statistics, as well as the philistine level

        U V.V. he had enough mind and will and courage, and he did everything right and according to plan. From the beginning, it’s the most cereal grain, then meat, then vegetables and fruits, now FISH is in line. Armiou raised.
        It will be a surprise if it is new in Nizhny Novgorod will determine the world price of grain. Then, naturally, the production of equipment for processing, etc., goes on ........
        While there is no mistake in terms of the development of the state, they will take into account that time and neighborhoods were not favorable for Rusiu and Ochim.

    Colleagues, we all congratulate the Black Sea people, and rightly so. But it is fair to say thank you to the shipbuilders for building and building ships for the Russian Navy.
    There was information on the site that they would start building their own in Kerch: "Mistral", but they started or "forgotten", I don't know. They may have started, but I didn't notice

      Yes, there was a message about the planned solemn laying of two UDC in Maisky (to be honest, I forgot about Kerch).
      Apparently, solemn bookmarks were canceled due to the virus.
      I will try to strain the intelligence sources, and find out what's with the ships.

      "There was information on the site that they will start building their own in Kerch:" Mistral ", but they started or" forgot ", I don't know. Perhaps they started, but I did not notice."
      As promised. Phoned colleagues, talked.
      As I was informed, two buildings are in operation. Celebrations on this occasion were canceled. And it is right. Honestly, I don’t like all this ostentation.
      The bottom line is that the ships are in operation. The timing is unfortunately not clear. In connection with all these inconsistencies. Our NW generally stands until June.
      But then ... I can smell it with my heart. As we rush in two shifts to play ... If we survive of course.
