          A pitiful sight, and is it a fragment of the great Soviet empire? Better to chew than talk, that's where the slogan is in action.

          a tihushka will deprive the United States of a dive record in the Mariana Trench - we will deepen it by 100 or 200 m and the Americans need to reconfirm the descent to a record depth.

      To understand what is happening in the Russian Navy. The Northern Fleet is already working on missions in Barentsukh. There are also 20 ships and submarines. But the squadron is not listed by name. Aviation and coastal units are involved. Exercises under the direction of the Deputy Fleet Commander. June 16 is already close! lol

        As someone who knows our fleet, I want to ask. What is the ratio of the Russian and US naval forces with their friends? In the Far East.

          The US is not in a happy mood in Barentsukh. The last time Ustinov turned away, only a few miles from the Norwegian trooper, although he was heading strictly south from the middle of the Barents Sea. 10 days ago, Peter 1 shot himself.

            Peter 1 shot.

            Peter is the Northern Fleet. And in general, there are only four ships voiced during the exercises out of twenty involved, or even three !!! The rest of the security! This is the whole Pacific Fleet, scribe, how sad. You don't have to ask where we are heading, we have already sunk. One AUG is many times more.

              I'm talking about the Northern Fleet, which is also in training. It's a little easier for them, because the newly recreated US Navy doesn't appear in Norway.

          Can they provide the withdrawal to the sea and cover for an additional detachment of submarine forces of the strategic nuclear forces?
          On the eve of a strange meeting with Biden, unnecessary arguments will not be superfluous.
          And at any other moment it would have been possible to talk about the "formidable force of 3 combat surface ships."

          Our fleet in the Far East is inferior even separately to the Japanese. But still, in addition to ships, Russia also has strategic aviation and other strategic nuclear weapons. So you cannot call us defenseless.

        For masking, I also paid attention. And the minusers probably don't want to take off their pink glasses or can't, and they believe all the crap that they are propagandists from the comprador authorities. There is no longer the Pacific Fleet.
