"Russia shows its muscles": Western press on the parade in Tartus

July 27 as part of the celebration of the naval fleet A series of maritime parades took place in Russia. One of them took place in the water area of ​​the Syrian port of Tartus. It, together with the adjacent territory, was leased to the Russian Federation and is the only Russian naval base in the Mediterranean.


This facility is an important component of the permanent operational presence of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean, providing the grouping of ships with the necessary infrastructure. Located in the "underbelly" of Europe, Tartus attracts increased attention from the Western press.

Analisi Difesa drew attention to the combat power presented by the Russian fleet in connection with the celebration of the next anniversary of its formation. As the Italian newspaper notes, nine combat pennants, boats and support ships marched in parade in the Syrian harbor. Among them were the Novorossiysk submarine and the Admiral Makarov frigate with the Caliber cruise missiles.

According to him, Ka-27PS, Mi-8AMTSh and Mi-35 helicopters, Su-24 bombers, fourth-generation Su-34 fighter-bombers, an improved fourth-generation Su-35 fighter, and A-50 radar detection aircraft were patrolling in the air.

The Russian fleet is showing its muscles in a particularly delicate region of the Mediterranean, where naval tensions are present: the Cyprus-Greece-Egypt axis, with the support of France, counteracts the forceful "assault" of Turkey

- writes Analisi Difesa.

      Rather, Turkey and France go down. And the "hegemon" does not stick out from overseas at all.

    When the "absolutely democratic" US aircraft carrier was driven to the shores of Syria, intending to bomb it for the alleged use of chemical weapons (2013), the "world community" did not worry - this is the "illegitimate" Assad will suffer ... and some civilians - who are they? thought ... And now what's wrong? The base does not allow aircraft carriers to be brought to the shore? To bomb Syria again?

      the "world community" was not worried

      Well, you just collapsed from an oak tree!
      They, NAGLOSAKS, can and need EVERYTHING!
      But the Russian (Russian) and Chinese military need to ask permission for everything, make everything worse and apologize for everything (well, repent).
      And God forbid, to do something that the Naglo-Saxons do not have!
      This "something (Poseidon, Petrel, Vanguard, Peresvet, Iskander, etc.)" must be banned / limited immediately!

        Well, as for the parades - have you seen their "parades" in Fashington?

          Just for comparison ...And this is never a militant!
          This is from the BDK sailors!
          From the company of the guard of honor, you can't even imagine how they would give!

          I can argue. A very efficient army of Israel generally does not know how to march, in my opinion. I haven't seen a single parade! But I would not have doubted their combat effectiveness. laughing
          Well, each army has its own way of training fighters. I agree that since you have already gone out to march, do it properly. The article is not about that. Our "partners" use any newsfeed to remind us of our "presence". So our presence in the Mediterranean is a very disturbing pain in the ass ...

            Really does not know how and does not learn.
            Well, parades are not held, respectively.
            They still (about horror, horror) do not find fault with the uniforms, and even go home for the Sabbath once every two weeks! With weapon! With ammunition!

                During the war (and they really have a war!) No one is fond of shagistics.
                And peace will NEVER come there!
                It is not needed by the leaderships on all sides of the conflict.
                Huge money will be wasted.
                Dear people will not be happy ...

          Actually, it is interesting to compare military parades of different countries. They preserve the military culture of the nation. You can see the imitation of other countries. You just need to look carefully, otherwise some people start looking with the aim of finding flaws or vice versa for admiration: they have a culture, and we.

    The Russian navy demonstrates its muscles in a particularly delicate area of ​​the Mediterranean
    Practice shows that if Western "partners" at least occasionally do not demonstrate something, then they completely lose their scent. And to be indignant or admired (which is unlikely) is their own business, tk. indignation at the activities of Russia is their main trend.

    here we should not forget about the coasts of Cuba, Venezuzilla, and the Nicaragua-Caribbean Sea is also our home, which means that parades should be held there and not a current sea

    Why were they excited? Che is so-so parade. Very modest. Of the real warships, only the frigate noticed.
