        So I read all the comments under this article and I got a feeling of déjà vu. "The best sons of Ukraine" also got sick of laughter and wrote sarcastic comments when there was recently a fire on Kuznetsov, in which two people died and, before that, when he was almost drowned together with PD-50 and a man also died, or, a little earlier when there was a fire on the nuclear submarine near Moscow and 17, it seems, people died. I remember that our gallant shipbuilders almost completely burned the strategic nuclear-powered ship Yekaterinburg during repairs on it. And we have a lot of such stories! I have a question for you: who are you laughing at? Are you laughing at yourself?fool I'm really ashamed of you repeat

          I support you mdsr (mdsr)! We ourselves are already becoming inadequate. Let there be at least a flood near the outskirts, but why turn VO ourselves into a Slop peacekeeper. Our ships are constantly on fire during repairs, why splash bile, the non-brothers themselves will ruin everything to the end.

          Don't overexert yourself, laughing and gloating are two different things. It caught fire, extinguished, there are no victims, and thank God. It's just that everything is symbolic somehow turns out according to the principle "Where the peasants, there and the monkey." The cons are not mine.

            Well, so you make a little effort on yourself and yourself try to think it over: During docking, Russia almost drowned the only aircraft carrier cruiser in the country, drowning the dock itself. And then, they almost burned him at the pier during the repair work. The fire area amounted to more than 1000 square meters. In total, during 2 of these emergency situations, 3 people died.

                Corvette of the Baltic Fleet of the Russian Federation "Soobrazitelny", launched just two years ago, was forced to withdraw from the international naval exercises "Danex-Noko-2012" due to a fire on board, reports "Central Naval Portal". The fire broke out on Sunday in the corridor of the gas ducts of the engine room of the corvette. According to preliminary data, a short circuit in the wiring or improper actions of the crew could have led to a fire.

                      There is no need to mow for tractor drivers, miners, etc. - Donbass men served in the Soviet Army. They know how to handle weapons. And Mikhail Tolstykh (Givi) served in military service in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but after the start of the civil war he joined the militia. And he is not alone. The 93rd brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine used to be Kharkov, and now Ukrainian-Polish-Baltic. In the last three days alone, three foreign mercenaries from the sabotage groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - a Canadian, an Estonian and an American - have been blown up by mines. The Canadian and the American fought in Iraq. Corpses with name tags were handed over to the Ukrainian side by the People's Police of the DPR.

    First, the American UDC, then the 7 Iranian ships caught fire, and now the Ukrainian ship ... The hand of Nibiru is visible!
    With Iran, it turned out funny, they postebalsya over amers, like we have nothing to do with (about the fire of the UDC), how they caught fire. Karma, che.

      In Iran, it’s just understandable - a whole series of sabotage at various facilities. And in the outskirts of the case sloppiness.

      Your Excellency, you need to know that all objects in the USSR (by inertia and in the republics, too) are ranked according to the degree of danger, cost and responsibility. Therefore, no more than two cars will go to a fire in a residential building, and 14 at once will go to a nuclear facility without understanding the magnitude of the fire. Then the extra ones will leave, or will come to the rescue, because ...

    After thirty years of fighting the memory of eternal friendship and seven years of fighting the hated Russian language, all the inscriptions are in the dock, only in Russian! Apparently there were only cadres who know only Russian.

    Lol week of emergency with landing ships.

    In Indonesia, drowned the GDR KFOR.
    Indonesian Navy Assault ship sank in Java sea
    The Indonesian medium landing ship Teluk Jakarta sank
    Teluk Jakarta reportedly left Surabaya July 12 to carry out the routine task of delivering supplies to naval facilities in eastern Indonesia. July 14, in a storm, a ship located northeast of Kangean Island opened a leak. The flow of water could not be stopped, and soon the ship, in view of the flooding of the engine room lost speed and sank at a depth of 21 meters at about 90 hours local time.
    All 55 people aboard the Teluk Jakarta were rescued.



    True, they are old (this one is 79 years old) and the replacement they have already built in Indonesian shipyards, a new type of KFOR - Teluk Bintuni, 7 units in the Navy.

    Smoked to see not prudently.
    In general, I have already reported a hundred times, the probability of fires during ship repair is extremely maximum.
    They need professionals who have experience in similar jobs.
    Any fire is put out in the bud. And an experienced comrade stupidly with a fire extinguisher (ideally), a half-liter jar of water, snow jelly (in the Murmansk region) will never allow the onset of a serious fire.
