Source: Four fleets and one flotilla are being withdrawn from the military districts under the direct subordination of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy
The Russian Ministry of Defense continues to reorganize in connection with the creation of two new military districts; it will affect all four fleets and the Caspian flotilla. According to an informed source, by December 1, the fleets will be withdrawn from the military districts and will come under the direct subordination of the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy.
From December 1, 2023, the Northern Fleet will lose the status of a joint strategic command, as several regions from its composition will be included in the Leningrad Military District. The Northern Fleet itself, as well as the Pacific, Black Sea, Baltic and Caspian flotillas, will come under the direct subordination of the Navy Commander-in-Chief Nikolai Evmenov, leaving the military districts. The main headquarters of the Navy will remain in St. Petersburg for now, but in the future it will be moved, where it is not yet known, but presumably to Moscow.
