NATO frigate enters the Barents Sea

NATO ships have recently become frequent in the Barents Sea. According to the National Center for Defense Management of Russia, on June 5, a multi-purpose frigate of the class FREMM (Frigates European Multi Mission) D 650 Aquitaine (Aquitaine) of the French Navy entered the sea.


According to the report, the French frigate "Aquitaine" entered the Barents Sea on June 5 in the afternoon, where it was immediately taken under surveillance by forces and means of the North fleet. Currently, NATO does not comment on the appearance of the Alliance ship near the northern borders of Russia.

The forces and means of the Northern Fleet began to monitor the actions of a frigate with a guided missile weapons “Aquitaine” of the French Navy, which entered the Barents Sea on June 5, 2020

- The National Center for Management said in a statement.

Note that in recent times this is the second entry of NATO ships into the Barents Sea. On May 4, 2020, a strike group of NATO ships entered the region, which included three U.S. Navy destroyers and a British frigate. In addition, the group was accompanied by reconnaissance aircraft and a nuclear submarine of the US Navy. The purpose of the call was called "ensuring trade security and demonstrating freedom of navigation in difficult conditions." NATO ships left the Barents Sea on May 8.

The frigate "Aquitaine" (tail number D 650) was delivered by the French Navy in November 2012 and is the lead ship of the FREMM class for the republic's fleet. The mission is to provide air defense and anti-aircraft defense of ship’s formation, destroy surface ships and strike at ground targets deep in the enemy’s territory.

The frigate is armed with a 76-mm Super Rapid artillery mount, A43 Silver UVP for Aster-15 and -30 missiles, Exoset anti-ship missiles MM40 Block 3 and 324-mm torpedo tubes. An NH-90 type helicopter can be based.

    Napoleon’s experience does not teach them anything, they hope that summer is now. But you can freeze in the Arctic and ice and linger until spring. repeat Until the convoys from China pass.

      The French comply with the order of the leadership of NATO. It was interesting
      to familiarize themselves with their operational plans for this theater of action.

      Napoleon did not break into the Barents Sea. Therefore, the current French do not really know what can come of it.

        No. Otherwise, his descendants today could well imagine what awaits them in those parts and behave quieter.

      Why don’t they? Apparently, they are so greeted that they are addicted.

    They have become too frequent there, so they probably do not consider it necessary to comment on something. Not a day without the "irritation" of Russia. I wonder why the Frenchman is alone, because usually they dive along our shores in a group of ships. Are we not going to Cuba on a friendly visit?

      They are waiting for our Parade to show.
      ...... example of a demonstration of freedom of navigation .....
      So, in my opinion, they always come up with something on the eve of the celebration. Well and again to spite Russia, of course.

    That is, until this moment, no tracking was carried out? And for the fleet, he appeared there completely unexpectedly?
