St. Andrew’s flag hoisted on the Admiralty building in St. Petersburg in honor of the relocation of the General Staff of the Navy

The headquarters of the Russian Navy officially officially moved to St. Petersburg. Today, a solemn ceremony of raising the Russian Navy flag on the historic building of the Main Admiralty was held on Senate Square in honor of the end of the redeployment of headquarters from Moscow.

"The command of the headquarters was completely relocated, the equipment was completely relocated, the Ministry of Defense allocated housing for senior and junior officers," Admiral Viktor Chirkov, commander of the Navy, said during the ceremony. He noted that "basically the work of the headquarters will not change." "On combat readiness fleet (relocation) will not be reflected, because today there are means of communication that allow us to work anywhere, "the commander explained." The advantage of relocating is that there is a leading scientific thought and industry that is engaged in the construction and development of the fleet, " he added.

In turn, the governor of St. Petersburg Georgy Poltavchenko noted that "moving the main headquarters of the Navy from a political and economic point of view is very appropriate for the city." "This raises the status of the city, returning it the status of the naval capital," he said. The governor added that this would allow receiving additional budget revenues by placing state defense orders at urban shipbuilding enterprises.

After the move, the Russian Fleet Command was housed in a historic building complex where the Naval Ministry of the Russian Empire was located until 1917. "It feels like the fleet has returned to its cradle. For Petersburgers, this is another reason to be proud of their city," said the governor.

The first building of the Admiralty, designed by Peter I, was intended as a complex of shipyards, docks and workshops for the construction and repair of ships. The building was laid on the left bank of the Neva in the autumn of 1704. It was a single-story notched hull in the shape of the letter "P" with an extensive courtyard open to the Neva.

The Admiralty was not only a shipyard, but also a fortress. All the buildings were surrounded by an earthen wall with five bastions and surrounded by a deep moat, through which a drawbridge was built. On the earthen wall around the fortress mounted guns. At the end of 1705, the main construction work was completed, the first ship from this shipyard was launched in April 1706. During the reign of Emperor Peter, 262 warships left here.

In the 1727-1738, a stone Admiralty building was erected. At the beginning of the XIX century, it was decided to rebuild the Admiralty, so that its appearance was in harmony with the parade center of the Russian capital. The building, designed by architect Zakharov, has been preserved to this day. The grand building, the length of the main facade which reaches 406 meters, consists of two U-shaped buildings. The building is decorated with a tower, surrounded by a colonnade and topped with a dome with a spire. It is equipped with a weather vane, which has become one of the symbols of St. Petersburg.

After a strong fire in 1783, Ekaterina P transferred all shipbuilding services to Kronstadt, and in the Admiralty building the naval facilities have since been located. In 1832, the Ship Architecture School opened here. Later, the building housed the Naval Ministry, the Naval Headquarters, the Higher Naval Engineering School named after F.E. Dzerzhinsky. Until the end of 2008, the headquarters of the Red Banner Leningrad Naval Base was deployed in the Admiralty. After the transfer of the capital from Petrograd to Moscow, the main headquarters of the Navy was located for many years in Bolshoi Kozlovsky Lane.

To the northern capital in May 2008, in accordance with a decree of the President of the Russian Federation, in historical The Senate building on Decembrists Square was moved from Moscow by the Constitutional Court. Recently, there have been reports in the media about a possible relocation by 2015 of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation to St. Petersburg, as well as the Supreme Arbitration Court.

      Somewhere it flashed that the building was crushed by the rear, and they were already sitting there. Why was there a lot of money to rot, to remove the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy from their place of residence? In order to put rear people in the vacant building? Weird! If not criminal! Our Commander-in-Chief with his Chief Executive Manager - Serdyukov, so gradually the General Staff will be dragged into his native village. Before Putin and the St. Petersburg company, I liked Peter, its bridges, palaces. museums, but now from one association Putin - Peter, this city becomes disgusting to me. Yes, and many of my friends.

        Such comments evoke the same feelings as the story of an abscess on the ass. Well, you do not like it - do not scratch. And why do we need to know about this. The city is beautiful. And the president is not the worst.

      Everything will remain in the military department, or rather, at the rear. At the last infe.

      The logistics services of the troops (formerly the rear services) will occupy the former building of the main headquarters of the Russian Navy, located in Bolshoi Kozlovsky Lane in Moscow, a source in the Russian military department told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

      “Now the logistics services for the troops will be housed in the building on Kozlovsky, the relocation has already begun,” the source said.

      According to him, the deputy minister of defense, Army General Dmitry Bulgakov, who oversees the army’s logistical services, will now work in the office, which was previously occupied by the commanders of the Navy.

        Yeah.

        If only Serdyukov and his Zhenbat would be free, there’s still more money to rake. Yes, he slept for himself at the wrong time. Or maybe he didn’t sleep?

          I declare a flash mob: put it in a random comment Serdyukov and get a cookie.
          Now to the point. The Minister of Defense of Russia is nothing more than an ordinary supply manager, and with the assurance that he is provided with it, it makes no sense to steal, he has everything. Therefore, firstly, nobody will let him into the former headquarters, and secondly, he has nothing to do there.

    "The relocation will not affect the fighting efficiency of the fleet, since today there are communication means that allow us to work anywhere," the commander-in-chief explained.

    Interestingly, they stretched out their optics with Moscow or hoped for the world wide web of the Internet.

    The Commander-in-Chief of the Navy Chirkov is motivated by the fact that even thousands of kilometers away they can get modern weapons. But the multi-star crafty modestly is silent that from now on the NOMELKATURA means of destruction of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy of the Russian Federation, has significantly expanded for adversaries. The time to repel an attack, for air defense systems, was significantly reduced.

    “According to military experts, the cost of the move cost the Defense Ministry 40-50 billion rubles.
    Recall that the idea of ​​moving the naval headquarters to St. Petersburg was put forward in 2007 by Boris Gryzlov, who at that time was the speaker of the State Duma, he made a proposal to Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov. The move was justified, among other things, by the overload of Moscow with administrative and managerial functions. The terms of the move were constantly postponed ... "(c)

    Well, that’s the commentators!
    Let the fleet headquarters be in St. Petersburg! The staff will at least look at the sea, otherwise they’ll sit in Moscow, and all the officers of the fleet!

They didn’t do a damn thing in Moscow, now in St. Petersburg at least there are problems - you need to urgently help yourself with the huts, grab the plot, etc. It's like grandfather Krylov, about a quartet. Wherever you sit, you need to be able to play. Well, they moved, and so what - did everyone immediately rush to build a fleet? And the money could be used better to find, in the same Baltic Sea a half ship in the Navy remained afloat ...

    Under Peter the I-city of St. Petersburg became the capital, so the Admiralty’s presence there (the Navy’s commander’s headquarters) was justified, but not now. Let’s then all the headquarters will be scattered around the country - Baikonur || Kapustin Yar, Strategic Rocket Forces — somewhere beyond the Urals, Airborne Forces Pskov || Ryazan. Then happen that they will send messengers from the Kremlin and carrier pigeons.

    It has long been necessary to unload Moscow from all ministries and departments. If they are transferred to other cities, and in Moscow only the Kremlin with the presidential apparatus is left, then in my opinion, breaking the ties of hereditary Moscow clerks will reduce corruption in Russia by a factor of 2–3. Respectfully.
