September 8 - Day of the Novorossiysk naval base of the Russian Navy

6

Naval base fleet The Russian Federation in Novorossiysk protects the sea gates of the South of Russia and is considered one of the largest naval groupings. It is an operational-tactical territorial formation within the Black Sea Fleet.


The date of its creation is considered to be July 1920. Then the young Soviet Republic decided to establish a naval base on the coast of the ice-free Tsemesskaya Bay. And although the Civil War was already coming to an end by that time, warships and units of the Novorossiysk base managed to take part in the defeat of the army of Baron Wrangel in the Crimea and the establishment of Soviet power in the Transcaucasus.

By the beginning of World War II, the base consisted of a formation of ships for the protection of the water area, a detachment of torpedo boats, a submarine division, coastal artillery and a support service.

During the war years, the ships and military units of the Novorossiysk naval base provided support to the garrisons of Odessa and Sevastopol, participated in the Kerch-Feodosia landing operation. When the enemy reached the Caucasus, the soldiers of the naval base fought for Novorossiysk. Among them were the marines under the command of Caesar Kunikov, who held the bridgehead, later called "Small Land".

Soon after the end of the war, the Novorossiysk base was disbanded. But after the collapse of the USSR, they decided to revive it again. This was due to the fact that Crimea and the coast of Georgia, where most of the Black Sea Fleet was based, after 1991 became abroad. The revival of the Novorossiysk naval base took place thanks to the relevant Government Decree of September 8, 1994.

It was this day that became the official holiday of military sailors and civilian personnel of the NNMB. The editorial board of Voennoye Obozreniye congratulates everyone who has served or is serving at the Novorossiysk naval base, and wishes them all earthly blessings.

      Also, on September 8, we celebrate the Day of the liberation of Donbass from the Nazi invaders during the Donbass strategic offensive operation of the Red Army (August 13 - September 22, 1943).

      Donbass was completely cleared of the enemy by September 8, and by September 22, the troops of the South-Western Front threw the enemy back across the Dnieper in the Dnepropetrovsk-Zaporozhye sector.

        September 8 marks the Day of Russia's Military Glory - the Day of the Battle of Borodino.
        - Tell me, uncle, it's not for nothing
        Moscow, burned by fire,
        The Frenchman is given away?
        After all, there were fighting fights,
        Yes, they say, even what!
        No wonder the whole of Russia remembers
        About Borodin's day!

          Napoleon in his memoirs about Borodino:
          "Of all my battles, the most terrible is the one I gave near Moscow.
          The French in it showed themselves worthy to win, and the Russians acquired the right to be invincible ... Of the fifty battles I have given, in the battle of Moscow the most valor was shown and the least success was won. "


          During the Battle of Borodino, Napoleon's army lost over 50 thousand people killed and wounded (according to French data, about 30 thousand people), including 49 generals; Russian army - over 44 thousand people (including 29 generals).

    And what does this base represent in terms of material and technical support, condition of onshore facilities, etc.? If you look from the outside, it is devastation, as if the Germans had just been driven out. Yes, and the ship's staff - the cat cried, and the state is deplorable. How can you handle the fleet?
