May 13 - Day of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy

26

July 15, 1996 Commander-in-Chief of the Naval fleet RF Admiral of the Fleet FN Gromov issued an order to celebrate the Day of the Black Sea Fleet. The date of the holiday, May 13, was chosen in honor of the day when, in 1783, 11 ships of the Azov flotilla arrived at the place where the base of the Russian naval fleet on the Black Sea - the port of Sevastopol - was laid in June of the same year. And on May 13, or the 2nd according to the old style, the first ships under the command of Admiral Klokachev entered the Akhtiarskaya Bay. Now this date is considered the birthday of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.


Today, the Russian Black Sea Fleet plays a strategic role, being, like several centuries ago, protecting the southern borders of the Fatherland.

The most ambitious events in honor of the Day of the Black Sea Fleet are held in Sevastopol and Novorossiysk. Coloring flags are raised on ships and festive formation of crews is carried out. On the shore, wreaths and flowers are laid at the monuments to the sailors and naval commanders of the Black Sea Fleet. Festive meetings, concerts and solemn services in churches are organized. Particular attention is paid to veterans of the Black Sea, congratulating them on the holiday.

The editorial board of Voenniy Obozreniye congratulates sailors, foremen, warrant officers, officers and admirals, all who serve or retired, as well as civilian personnel on their professional holiday. We wish you good health, success in your service and all earthly blessings.

            This is not the song "My Black Sea", but a completely different - MODERN - a song called simply "Black Sea", which is dedicated to the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
            This is the author's project of Denis Maidanov and Sergey Bazhenov dated May 11, 2021.

            That is why you so hastily and without understanding what is the matter, spoil everyone's festive mood ?! repeat

                Well, vocals are not operatic. And what from this?

                The main thing is that the authors of the video, with love and respect for the Black Sea people, tried with all their hearts and from the bottom of their hearts to sincerely congratulate them on their professional holiday!

                Try to congratulate yourself, and we'll see how you do it! It’s easy to criticize others.

              But the most soul-taking song about the Black Sea people is "The Black Sea Fleet Sailor". Eternal memory to all Black Sea residents who defended our Motherland.
              I met him near Odessa dear,
              When our company went into battle.
              He walked in front, with a machine gun in his hands -
              Seaman of the Black Sea Fleet.

                This song has another name - "Sailor from Ordynka"

                This is the song.

              Dear Tanya!
              I am completely for our young authors to create new wonderful songs about Victory. Let them create! And more!
              But a song, especially a patriotic one, to take a stranglehold is a VERY difficult task ... The authors themselves never know whether this song will go to the people or not ...
              Here, in my opinion of the old quilted jacket, this song will be forgotten in a year or two, or even immediately ...
              I'll be glad to be wrong.
              If I made a mistake, I will not be upset at all.

                This song is suitable for any voice to perform.
                This song will be sung by sailors in the crew quarters and performed at concerts for more than one year! Of course, if she gets publicity on the Internet.

        My favorite song about the sea ... It smells like the sea. Childhood. Father's tunic, the indescribable smell of a warship.

    Revived Black Sea Fleet-URA!
    Because in the days of uk..r. possession of Sevastopol, he was connected both in the replenishment of ships and aircraft and in his actions. And after 2014, every year - replenishment and modernization.
    It's nice to remember Sevastopol and the fleet.
