Russian warships arrived in Bangladesh for the first time in half a century

The South Asian port of Chittagong was visited by large anti-submarine ships (BOD) of the Russian Navy "Admiral Tributs" and "Admiral Panteleev", as well as the tanker "Pechenga". Russian warships arrived in Bangladesh for the first time in half a century.

According to the Russian Ambassador to this South Asian state, Alexander Mantytsky, the previous time the Russian squadron fleet arrived in Chittagong to clear and demining the water area.



Honorary Consul of the Russian Federation in Chittagong Ashik Imran said that the visit of Russian ships is exclusively friendly.

This is evidence that relations between our two states are now at a very high level

- he said.

Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke about the Russian leadership's intention to develop bilateral contacts with Bangladesh in all areas.

Actually, the cooperation of the USSR with this state was close, friendly and mutually beneficial. In Soviet stores you could even find goods made in Bangladesh.

Countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America still remember their Russian friends from the USSR with warmth.

It is also important to consider that a presence in the Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf region, including a military one, is important for our country. Perhaps it is also worth thinking about options for placing a base there for our Navy. Moreover, in Sudan, where it was planned to create a logistics support point for Russian ships, a difficult political situation has developed.

    This trend, the awakening of the Russian fleet, inspires certain hopes, cautious optimism, let’s say. The fact that our ships have again begun to make long voyages and enter harbors where they have not been seen for decades indicates that positive progress is underway. Bases are being built again, the boot of a Russian soldier sets foot on long-forgotten piers and parade grounds. Do you remember under what tune all this was curtailed? Liberals sang songs when the USSR died and Russia was not yet born, that we would cut up the missiles, lay down our arms and live in grand style. Well, the Demon called the West, as usual, deceived, and his adherents - liberals, outright Satanists, brought Russian civilization to the altar of the executioner. And there were no more missiles, no more great country, and along with it pensions collapsed and salaries went to zero.

    But the revival of the fleet and army are signs indicating that the country, yes, slowly, yes, painfully, but is moving in the right direction. It would be possible to do everything faster, as some demand, but, excuse me, running a big country is not driving a passenger car. Try to make sharp maneuvers on a truck with a trailer, take sharp turns or drive recklessly on a tanker - the result is extremely unpredictable, most likely it will end badly. And the President has no right to make a mistake. Therefore everything goes smoothly. I myself would like to shoot many oligarchs and deputies without trial, along with all their clans, without much understanding, but what consequences could this have for the country in the medium term?

    Therefore, I am glad that our country has reached a new level and has taken another small step towards regaining lost ground.

    Glory to Russia!

      Bangladesh...

      ...an area the size of three Moscow regions (or one Vologda region) is home to more people (162000000 people) than in all of Russia.

      Quote: Vladlous
      Liberals sang songs when the USSR died

      EBN was the first to sing the song, so much so that he was heard in Washington and GMS sang along with him...
      Quote: Vladlous
      And there were no more missiles, no more great country, and along with it pensions collapsed and salaries went to zero.

      Is this the main thing? The plans of hundreds of millions of Soviet people who voted to preserve the USSR collapsed...
      I’m just curious, do you consider Putin and Medvedev to be liberals or do you consider their emergence in power as a challenge to EBN’s rule, as the serviceist society claims here?

      Here they threw sticks at me because I did not appreciate the power of the American AUGs. Yes, the American fleet is not even close to the Russian one...Even the Chinese fleet is growing faster. The question arises: Why the hell, without a sufficient number of warships in the far sea zone, is an eyesore with your “power”?
      * * *
      The event, in truth, is not only “epoch-making”, but also “significant”. Having lost their bases with some partners, they began to strive to create them with others. But will today's Russia be able to keep up with military spending and oligarchs?

    Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke about the intention of the Russian leadership to develop bilateral contacts with Bangladesh
    - but the consulate in Chittagong was closed. Now it’s not Russians who provide consular services there).
    Order of the Government of the Russian Federation dated February 5, 2018 No. 153-r On the closure of the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Chittagong (People's Republic of Bangladesh)
    1. Accept the proposal of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to close the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Chittagong (People's Republic of Bangladesh).
    2. The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, until March 31, 2018, will carry out measures related to the closure of the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Chittagong (People's Republic of Bangladesh).
    Those. the logic is not clear - the Ministry of Foreign Affairs itself proposed to curtail everything, but now you see it seems like a different version.

    Russian ships (including those with equipment for the nuclear power plant being built there) are not allowed to enter seaports. And this is the passage from the Russian Foreign Ministry.
    Next year there are elections and no one knows who will come to power in the country.
    And lastly, Russia accounts for only about 2% of Bangladeshi trade, while the United States and the European Union account for 15% and 55%, respectively.

      This was to be expected. As a result of unclear policies, all ties with countries were destroyed. They closed the trade mission, canceled direct flights, entrusted banking services to intermediaries, and removed the office of the economic adviser. And a country with a population of 200 million - you can take and sell everything there!!!!
      And now they have come to their senses.

        All? Who will buy there? There is terrible poverty there. There is only one (!) technical university for the entire country of 200 million. Moreover, the overwhelming majority of graduates of this university immediately tear their claws to the decaying West.

    . Russian warships arrived in Bangladesh for the first time in half a century.

    It would be better to come to Odessa for the first time in many years.
    And it would be good there:

    . think about options for placing a base there for our Navy.

      So, the local government is still objecting to Odessa. But in the future. maybe they'll change their minds.
