The United States notified Turkey about the passage of warships through the Bosphorus even before the transfer of units of the Russian Armed Forces in the southwest of Russia

26

It became known that the American authorities informed Ankara that two warships of the US Navy will proceed through the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus to enter the Black Sea. It is noted that as the reason for the direction of the ships of the American fleet in the US they called “an increase in the concentration of Russian troops on the borders of Ukraine.


The reports say that two ships of the US Navy "will be stationed in the Black Sea until May 4th." The US states that they informed the Turkish side, as prescribed by the Montreux Convention, no later than 2 weeks before the ships passed through the straits. At the same time, it was stated that "the request was sent 15 days ago."

It turns out that the United States notified Turkey even before Russia began the transfer of units of the RF Armed Forces in the south-west of the country. In this case, Washington's explanation of the reasons for the entry of US warships into the Black Sea looks more than strange. Have the Pentagon confused the causal relationships?

Meanwhile, in Turkey, they write that during a telephone conversation between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan, the issue of compliance with the Montreux Convention was discussed. Vladimir Putin noted that he expects Ankara to comply with this international legislative act after the commissioning of the Istanbul Canal, which should become an alternative to the congested Bosphorus.

And in Ukraine, they said that "Erdogan and Putin checked their watches" before the meeting of the Turkish President with Vladimir Zelensky. Recall that Erdogan and Zelensky are preparing to discuss a range of issues related to bilateral relations, including, for example, the possibility of supertankers with LNG passing through the straits into the Black Sea. We are talking about tankers that (on the basis of an agreement with Doha) could supply Ukraine with liquefied natural gas from Qatar. Prior to that, Turkey has invariably been against the passage of such supertankers through the straits, noting that it is unsafe.

        Forget about the "Slavs". There are "warriors of light" and "enemies". Both are Russians.

      This is a signal to Ukrainian national radicals. A signal that creates false illusions in this audience, such as "Ameryka z nama!" and it is possible to further aggravate the situation in the Donbass.

    Forgot to add to the reasons: "and to protect the concentration of Russian troops and the borders of Ukraine from Iranian missiles.

      So there is nothing.
      Peter is waiting for repairs and will not take out a potential trip around the world.
      Ustinov can - but this is the only definitely combat-ready ship of the Northern Fleet. Plus he still has to go to the parade.
      Gorshkov - participates in the Zircon testing program.
      Kulakov is a dove of peace with a half of the already outdated MD air defense system. How will he frighten the Americans? Flexible? Or a Trumpet?
      Since the age of 16, Levchenko has been welded to the 35th plant with small absences for the parade. Money for repairs was found only at the end of 20. They will be repaired by 23 without modernization.

      Chabanenko has been under repair for 7 years.

      Severomorsk was driven out in 2019. He will not go anywhere without HTG and repair.

        You forgot about. The frigate "Admiral of the Fleet Kasatonov" is a Russian multipurpose frigate with guided missile weapons of the long sea and ocean zone of project 22350. On July 21, 2020, the flag was raised and the frigate became part of the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy.

          Did not forget. He goes home after a three-month trip to the SPM - with a demonstration of the ship in Algeria and Egypt, hoping to interest a foreign customer in 22350E.




          Already passed the English Channel going home.

    On March 5, the first messages from the Ukrainian Armed Forces appeared about the concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine. But the United States decided to send the AUG with Dwight to the Persian Gulf. Either out of harm's way, or showing its attitude towards Ukraine. If anything, then as if without us ! "Promptly" send 2 destroyers to the Black Sea, April 14 - 15, although they could have been there on March 29 - 30, March 5 plus 2 weeks. It just looks like the fleet is not enough to be in every "barrel plug". Two options or The United States will come to the Black Sea for a "nodding analysis" or Ukraine will "grow insolent" after April 14-15.

    Not. It's just that their computers, with which they consult, are either the months beguiled, or the numbers in these months. These are terrible computers! And the Merikos are nothing new. (C) laughing

    Prior to that, Turkey has invariably been against the passage of such supertankers through the straits, noting that it is unsafe.

    In the early 2000s, a Ukrainian military transport carrying ammunition to Egypt "drove" into a pier in the Istanbul region. Lucky, didn't explode. And this happens almost every year. It is not possible to imagine, if a "barrel" of thousands of tons explodes, how many victims there will be. The passage of tankers takes place only in one direction, two-way traffic is prohibited, and in case of one-way traffic, the tanker is allowed to go one by one. The strait is blocked, and this reduces the traffic flow.

    If the Judeobanderonarkot breaks off, Erdogad will not let tankers with LNG through the canal, although he is beaten off to a full pumpkin, he still understands the danger. PS. Really laughed about the reconciliation of watches, before meeting with the great anthelmintic ze wassat

    I would venture to suggest that "the increase in the concentration of Russian troops on the borders of Ukraine" is associated with the sharp US activity in Europe, including in the Black Sea.

    Our metallurgy is half loaded, + dollars in the reserves of dofig. Let's build ocean ferries with a sleek top deck. In peacetime, wagons can be rolled there, and in the military, mobile missile and other systems. An excess of tonnage over armament is not scary: a large ship sinks longer. Disadvantage: ferries have large, inseparable internal volumes, and a warship must have many small watertight compartments. In this case, a tanker with a flat upper deck, which can be used for railway wagons, is better suited. Simultaneously a railway ferry and a tanker. In the event of war, weapons are rolled onto the deck directly in the wagons, and many tanks inside the holds will ensure unsinkability. It will also come out cheaper.
    .
    Modern warships take decades to build. They themselves and their weapons are rapidly becoming obsolete. Out of stingy economy, they are made cramped and uncomfortable, and modern weapons cannot be squeezed onto them - there is not enough space. A civilian ship can be oversized. There is no need to pay for it in peacetime - it earns on itself. It is easy and quick to place weapons on it in the form-factor of railway wagons. Change is also quick. With a dozen such ferries in each theater of operations, you can have only one set of weapons out of four. And you can store these weapons in the depths of the country, even in factories ...

    They just adjust the causal relationship to the current situation. From the outside it looks "impressive" - ​​the United States sends ships to the Black Sea to support Ukraine. Ukrainians pee with delight, NATO allies proudly raise their heads and snuggle closer to each other. And the fact that in the Black Sea some US ships are changing others according to the treaty to irritate Russia, this does not bother anyone today.

    Everything is clear: there is no force to enforce the regime established by the Convention on the Status of the Straits (Convention de Montreux) regulates navigation in the Bosporus and Dardanelles and in the Sea of ​​Marmara (signed in Montreux (Switzerland), entered into force on November 9, 1936).
