As it turned out, the yacht got into a storm, after which the steering gear failed and the outboard water began to flow. Attempts to rectify the situation on their own did not lead to anything, and the French traveler decided to send a distress signal. He was lucky, in relative proximity to the yacht, a detachment of ships of the Northern Fleet was just passing by.

As a result of the rescue operation, French citizen Lucas Monteu, his dog and personal belongings were taken on board. The yacht was left to drift in the ocean, but judging by the message, it will not do this for long, after which it will sink, taking on sea water. The rescued Frenchman will be landed at the nearest port, he asked for it himself.

On board the tanker "Kama" the rescued traveler received first aid. At his request, he will be delivered to the nearest port

          They will say that the dog was raped by Russian sailors, and the Frenchman was forced to sing the Russian anthem, and then peel potatoes for the entire crew of the ship. wink .. It's so funny. Truly our sailors are great! Saved a man in distress in the ocean, the life and his four-legged friend, a dog, too. hi

        This is the law for everyone, at all times.
        In the winter of 1996, NATO countries conducted large naval exercises in which submarines, aircraft, and anti-submarine ships participated. The training task was standard, to detect and destroy the submarines of a conditional enemy - it, as is usual in all such exercises of the armies of the world, was successfully completed.

        At the end of the exercises, when the NATO ships were building in a marching system and were about to go to their bases, the radio operators received a message from an unknown ship: the commander of a Russian submarine asked for help to the sailor from his ship - he had an attack of appendicitis.

        The admirals and the entire command of the NATO fleet experienced a state of deep shock - no extraneous military vessels, according to the acoustics and aerial reconnaissance, should not be near. The feeling of shock increased to a critical limit, when, in response to permission, a Russian submarine surfaced almost in the center of the military structure of the NATO ships!

        A sailor from the submarine was evacuated to the destroyer of the British Navy Glasgow, then sent by helicopter to a military hospital, where he was safely operated on, and our boat sank under water and after a short time again disappeared from the radar ..

          Jeune marin je me suis fait retirer, par précaution l'appendice, l'histoire est jolie mais je pense que des sous mariniers, comme des marins, des cosmonautes avec appendice cela doit être rare surtout pour des militaires ? Non? Il yat il des marins Russes sur ce site pouvant confirmer ou infirmer ?

          Young sailor, my appendix was removed as a precaution, the story is beautiful, but I think that submariners, such as sailors, astronauts with an appendix, must be a rarity, especially for the military? Right ? Are there Russian sailors on this site who can confirm or deny this?

        Bien sur c'est la base. Ce qui me semble "impoli" c'est de demander à être débarqué au port le plus proche.
        Si un jour, par malheur, mon navire coule et que je sois sauvé par un navire, je trouverais impoli de, en plus exiger d'être débarquer dans le port le plus proche.
        Cela entraine une perte de temps et un surcoût pour le navire sauveteur.
        Je resterais à bord jusqu'à la première escale prévue pour le navire.

        Of course, this is the basis. What seems "rude" to me is asking to be dropped off at the nearest port.
        If one day, by misfortune, my ship sinks and some ship saves me, I will consider it impolite, moreover, to demand a landing at the nearest port.
        This results in loss of time and additional costs for the rescue ship.
        I would stay on board until the first scheduled stop of the ship.

          You can ask for anything, but they will do exactly what is planned. No one will change the purpose of the operation for the sake of one person.
          They will land where they deem it necessary and possible.
          In my practice, plans were changed only because of seriously ill patients, and then not for long.

            C'est pourquoi cette phrase m'a fait reagir:
            "Le Français secouru sera debarque au port le plus proche, il l'a demandé lui-même. "

            That's why this phrase made me react:
            "The rescued Frenchman will be landed at the nearest port, he himself asked for it."

        "Sea tanker "Kama" deviated from the route and proceeded to the area of ​​the accident". It is unlikely that there are Zircons on the tanker. :))

          That's for sure, there really is a trailer with a vertical take-off, and a shovel with an optical sight, a citizen has a strange assumption, to sink a yacht in order to climb onto the ship.

      From the movie "Battalion", it seems, the words of an American officer:
      - It's good that Russians never change.
      Meaning that they will always come to the aid of civilians, even if they themselves may die.

        Reminds me of the movie Pirates of the XNUMXth Century.
        Only there they rescued a Japanese, at least similar to him.

        That is what they are afraid of, afraid to hysteria. That is why the main goal will always be the destruction of the Russian people. Sadly, they do...

      The ship on which the Frenchman is located must be checked for possible bookmarks and beacons.

      There were no other options for the actions of our sailors, neither in accordance with the charter, nor in conscience.
      The dog was saved, but what's the dog, even if there was a Pole or a Latvian, they would have been saved too.

      On TV, he will later say that it was the Ukrainian ship that saved him - and the Russian sailors met him when the yacht was intact. They mocked him, beat him, raped him, forced him to drink urine, and then broke through the bottom of the yacht and left him to sink.
      If he doesn't want to, the politics of the mainstream of the Western media will be forced.
