Russia and Kazakhstan begin joint naval exercises in the Caspian Sea

Russia and Kazakhstan have launched joint naval exercises in the Caspian Sea. A group of ships from the Caspian flotilla has already arrived in the Aktau port area.


A detachment of Russian ships left the port of Makhachkala this morning and headed for the territorial waters of Kazakhstan. The detachment includes several ships: MRK Grad Sviyazhsk, two minesweepers - the base Magomed Gadzhiev and the raid RT-234, as well as the Project 22820 SB-738 rescue tug and the Anatoly Guzhvin small hydrographic vessel of the 872 project.

In addition, the sea tug MB-58 from the Caspian Flotilla will be involved in the exercises, which will ensure the installation of targets for artillery fire and the Su-34 front-line bomber of the combined air force and air defense forces of the Southern Military District to simulate an air target.

The Kazakh side will be represented by up to five warships and support vessels, which are not reported.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, both detachments met in the Aktau area and have already begun to carry out training and combat missions. The exercises will last from May 18 to May 24, they will be held at sea ranges both in Russia and Kazakhstan. The exercise program provides for several scenarios during which joint actions will be practiced.

It is emphasized that due to the coronavirus pandemic, calls of ships to the ports of Russia and Kazakhstan are not planned before the end of the exercises.

        Well, finally, the Kazakhs decided on military exercises .. Or else they sit like mice on a large territory and in a very dangerous direction in which case ..
        Otherwise, you will wake up, and you are already Chinese territory or gangs of the Taliban and other igils are in charge of you .. soldier
        You have money on gas and uranium, you withdraw good dividends, but you don’t spend much on the Army .. Are you hoping for Russia? So let's get together .. wink

    One combat RTO from our side and that's it. Obviously the exercise is a demonstration of the flag and "joint efforts" to maintain peace in the region. Something like that ... The rest of everything went to the Crimea? There it is more needed.

    So-so ally from Kazakhstan. On the Internet, their youth went with a roof in their Russophobia and dreams all about some kind of Turan. However, Azerbaijani youth is also active, especially in the English-speaking space, to mention Russia in a negative way. But this is an additional element of a hybrid war against Russia from our dear neighbors in the English-speaking field.

    Why exercise in the Caspian Sea? This is a closed sea, and none of the countries of this basin has any claims to another country, and even all mutually good friendly relations. Why burn natural resources in vain ...

      And preemptive. Everything there is quiet and calm - so it will continue to be so. Well, and a demonstration to unfriendly countries that the Russian Federation knows how to get along well if it is not bullied.

        Think correctly Elena! It is calm for now, but at any moment it can blaze .. There are Iran, Azerbaijan, there are forces that would be happy to play them off (they will find a reason) ..

      IMHO Not already. Azerbaijan has claims against Armenia, and it is a member of the CSTO ... The Kazakhs are great for joining the "expression of concern" of the CSTO with the behavior of Azerbaijan. wink

        Well, if this is all to show its strength to Azerbaijan, then it is stupid. Azerbaijan understands perfectly well that someone and Russia will crush any neighboring state in a week. And at the expense of the CSTO, Azerbaijan is fully confident in Kazakhstan, Belarus and Kyrgyzstan, that they would rather leave the CSTO than send guns towards Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan, both the state and the people themselves, trusts these countries as themselves.

      This is BATTLE TRAINING, this must necessarily be carried out regardless of what kind of relations with this or that border country, and not on paper, but in reality, which is what the fleet is doing! hi

    Kazakhstan is a Misunderstanding! It hurts to read that there is someone else in the Caspian, except for Russia and Iran !!! PS Much more Russian-speaking people left Kazakhstan than from the Baltic states - from there, no matter how "bad" it was for them, they do not flee! But they are fleeing from Kazakhstan! Maybe it's time to deal with all these "allies" and freeloaders !? Kazakhstan, for example, practically did not invest money in its Army, hoping for Russia, which will "Protect" it !!! But he built Cities and Capitals!
