The Russian fleet will receive a logistics center on the Red Sea

Russia received a logistics center on the Red Sea. As follows from the text of the agreement between the Russian Federation and Sudan, signed on December 1, 2020, the parties entered into an agreement for 25 years. The document was published on the portal of legal information.


The Russian Navy has received a new MTO point on the territory of Sudan. The agreement was signed on December 1 for a period of 25 years with automatic renewal for the next 10 years, if one of the parties, one year before the expiration of the agreement, does not warn the other about its intention to terminate it.

(...) the location on the territory of the Republic of Sudan of a logistics point of the Naval Fleet The Russian Federation meets the goals of maintaining peace and stability in the region, is defensive in nature and is not directed against other states

- the document says.

The agreement permits no more than four ships of the Russian Navy, including warships with a nuclear power plant, to be at the logistics center at the same time. Russia will have to notify Sudan 12 hours before the entry of its ships and three hours before they leave. According to the project, the number of the Russian contingent in the new MTO point will not exceed 300 people.

Recall that on November 11, 2020, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree on the creation of a logistics center in Sudan. The draft of a new MTO item was developed by the Ministry of Defense, agreed with the Russian Foreign Ministry and other departments, as well as the Sudanese side.

In general, the news is not only good, but also useful, but the price of the issue is not clear yet. And this is important, because if we start building something serious, it will cost a pretty penny, and it will be sad if we have to leave this base ahead of time.

          Of course, it will look cool, like in Syria. For me, the question is how the base differs from the MTS point (Obana has a cellular connection) fellow

            First of all, the staff structure and the possibility of repair - at the point they will hardly be able to organize it, higher than the current one.

              If there is a dock, then the base? So there seems to be something about nuclear-powered ships.

          The summer (one might say, tropical) uniform was and is in the navy. Blue T-shirts, shorts and caps. By the way, they look very organic.
          And let the British colonialists wear cork, there is no need for them.
          And the PMTO does not imply any serious construction and large financial investments. This is not a naval base. In Somalia and Eritrea, arch. Dakhlak of the USSR had a PMTO. After changing political vectors, they were quickly withdrawn.

            I do not think that their berths are already prepared to receive ships, and the territory of the base is rolled into concrete and the entire infrastructure is working. Most likely, they will give dilapidated buildings that will either be demolished or new ones will be built, and which will have to be equipped at our expense.
            However, I do not presume to assert this - we must wait for the pictures in Western publications or on the net.

                  In Tartus and under the USSR it was, after the collapse was and is now. What kind of repair can be done quickly. Gunsmiths, diesel workers and other workers' guards. Pay for the mooring beam? So lease! Why pay! Coastal honey. item will be required! Somewhere you will have to rent a couple of houses for staff and family members. This is an axiom.

                    Of course, but I admit that it will be possible to build your own modules - it will be calmer for our people.
                    In general, the idea is not bad, but in my opinion, no one knows how the locals will lead in the future. This means that our losses are primarily material.

          The uniforms for hot regions include panamas, shorts, T-shirts and leggings, and this has been for many years. Unfortunately or fortunately, there are no plans for cork helmets.

        22160 will probably go there. The Red Sea is ideal for them, they certainly won't drown there :)
        And if it is a little more serious, there and so in that region regularly, after all, someone is on duty. Just recently "Yaroslav the Wise" met "Academician Chersky" in Sri Lanka, and he did not go there from the Baltic. It is for such "shift workers" that there will be a "flat". It is also likely that ships from the Black Sea will be able to go on long voyages in that direction without being accompanied by tugs and tankers.

      On what conditions is it interesting how much you have to pay? Or will we lease weapons to Sudan?

      It is quite possible .... on account of the rent (not its variable part), payment is allowed not only in money, but also in services / works ...

      What we have innumerable ...
      In exchange for the deployment of a naval station, Russia undertakes, upon the request of the Sudanese side, to provide free assistance in anti-sabotage and air defense of the port, as well as in the "development and construction of the armed forces of the Republic of Sudan." To this end, in accordance with a separate, unpublished protocol to the agreement, Russia will begin delivering weapons and military equipment to Sudan.

      We were close to the United States in Cuba, but following the demands of the US government, on October 17, 2001, President Vladimir Putin announced at a meeting in the Ministry of Defense about the elimination of military bases in Lourdes and Cam Ranh.
      The withdrawal of the base was carried out in August 2002, and in the same year the base was closed in Kamran (Vietnam).

    12 hours before the call of their ships and three hours before their departure from there
    But this is not a fountain. Especially about the exit. But a base in the Red Sea is not a bad thing, Campaigns are easier to organize, anti-piracy actions are cheaper.

      Most likely these are "standard conditions" for all interested parties.
      When it comes down to it, they will sort it out on the spot. Sudan will not interfere, will it? bully

    .As a penny I will say the good news.

    Our naval officers will look especially gorgeous in shorts, a cork helmet and gaiters, if, of course, due to their clothing allowance, it is necessary for them. In general, the news is not only good, but also useful, but the price of the issue is not clear yet. And this is important, because if we start building something serious, it will cost a pretty penny, and it will be sad if we have to leave this base ahead of time.


    Now there are technologies for pre-fabricated structures, no mega-foundations, geological surveys, etc., etc. are needed, yes, in any case it is money, but not critical.
    The main thing is that a good place was chosen, it was agreed, I think a plan was drawn up in advance for the location of buildings, hangars, protection, burglar alarms, in general, the costs are already secondary, and of primary importance is the cover of Syria, and I'm not afraid of this word, the presence in the Indian Ocean)

      , yes, in any case it is money, but not critical.

      Firstly, money is very critical for us, if only because a foundation is needed for any machine, as well as a huge amount of electricity for such an item. Moreover, it is quite possible that bottom-dredging works will have to be carried out, and this is not worth a penny.
      Secondly, the cost of maintaining such an item is also not a penny - it's not for you to build it on the Black Sea, everything there will be several times more expensive even for delivery.
      But the most problematic is the local authorities, which in general may require from us, after we invest, completely different methods of payment, up to currency, and even overstate the price. We went through this with Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and even with Lukashenko, who all the time says that we pay him little for our two projects.
      That is why I don’t know who calculated everything, but I would not want to scratch my bald spot later ...

    After the departure of the USSR, this is the first site of our Navy with access to the vastness of the Indian Ocean, control of trade sea routes running through the Suez Canal, it would be nice for our fleet to return to Mozambique and Angola, we will have the opportunity to control the western part of the Indian Ocean and the eastern part of the Atlantic in its African zone, just laying two UDCs is possible for these purposes

    And why the fuck is he needed there? I understand if it were somewhere in West Africa. For example, we have a lot of investments in Venezuela, and the Venezuelan government is kept on snot. In the event of another coup attempt, how to provide support? Make a circle on Tu-160 and the armed opposition will scatter itself?
