October 30 - Foundation Day of the Russian Navy


Today the Russian Navy is celebrating an important memorable date - the day it appeared. This happened on October 30, 1696, when the Boyar Duma, on the initiative of Tsar Peter Alekseevich Romanov, who later became known as Emperor Peter the Great, announced the decision to create in Russia a regular Naval fleet.

And although our country used the military fleet long before Peter I, it was during his reign that it was first created on a professional basis.

One of the first warships - the Emperor's boat “Saint Nicholas” - has even been preserved to this day. He was deservedly called "the grandfather of the Russian fleet." And in the laying of several warships on Lake Pleshcheyevo in Pereslavl-Zalessky, the head of state himself took an active part, and making considerable physical efforts to this matter.

It was during his reign that the Russian surface navy appeared, which soon became one of the strongest in the world.

And the submarine fleet appeared in Russia more than 200 years later - in 1906. It was then that the Russian Empire acquired the first submarines.

This year, interesting events for residents and guests of the capital of our country in honor of the Foundation of the Russian Navy will be held by the Museum stories Navy, located in the North Tushino park. Exhibition events are held on a real submarine, and nearby you can see the ekranoplan "Eaglet".

The editorial board of Voennoye Obozreniye congratulates the servicemen of the Navy, veterans and everyone who is related to the Navy on their professional holiday and sincerely wishes them all the best.

              Train Moscow - Vladivostok, compartment, a sailor sits on the top shelf with his legs dangling. From the bottom shelf, the grandmother asks:
              - Hey sailor, are you changing socks?
              - Only for vodka.
              - How does the earth wear such?
              - I would get to Vladik and manal your land

    It's a pity that we have a land-based city. Well, as land - the Volga, of course, is a big deal. But the Naval Parade in the Baltic is something with something !!! .... The very "heaven-earth", "parachute-once ...", but in childhood I re-read and revised so much "naval" that every day of the Navy I regret that I did not serve in the navy (the native landing will not be offended - for a minute wink).

    Happy holiday bros!

    And, as they said before?
    Seven feet under the keel! drinks soldier
    There is a reason... drinks

    The Russian fleet should be! - On October 30, 1696, the Boyar Duma, at the insistence of Peter I, made a decision: "There will be sea vessels!" The glorious history of the Russian fleet began from that day.

    The fleet is people serving on it.

    Happy holiday to all involved! soldier
    I remembered the times of the USSR, they created such ships ..

    And what kind of submarines (titanium K-169), in the submerged position, developed a speed of 40 knots, 80 km !!!!! So far we are all far from all this, but the work seems to be going on

    Day of the navy, day of the founding of the navy, day of the surface sailor, day of the submariner, day of the torpedo, day of the tug ...
    For each specialty on a holiday, each date is timed to coincide with a significant event. Yes, only at the exit we have not a fleet, but a feeder for hangers-on and their families. Sailors are either disenfranchised slaves or careerists. Instead of fighting capacity - zilch. In Barents, the partners are at home, there have been no discoveries since 95, and the admirals and commanders are checking whether their subordinates have changed winter tires for summer ones. Well at least they go out to sea for a view ... Happy Holidays, I sympathize with the accomplices.
