Medvedev: the creation of a base of Russian ships in Kamran is coordinated

39
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev arrived in Vietnam. Here he discusses the issue of restoring the base of the Russian ships in Cam Ranh. “We also discussed the creation of a base of Russian ships in Kamrani. This is a topic on the agenda, it continues to be coordinated,” Medvedev admitted.

The Vietnamese side decides how to formalize relations with partners, ITAR-TASS reports.

The Soviet naval base Cam Ranh was located in the deep-water bay of the same name Cam Ranh in the Vietnamese province of Khanh Hoa. The bay is protected from typhoons of the South China Sea 30-kilometer-long peninsula. Due to the natural conditions, the Kamrani port is considered one of the best deep-water ports in the world.

During the Vietnam War, Cam Ranh was a large US base base. The Americans built an airfield and modern port in Cam Ranh. On the airfield based 12-e tactical fighter wing and transport wing of the US Air Force.

On May 2, 1979, the USSR and Vietnam signed an agreement on the use of the port of Camran as a logistics point for the Soviet Naval fleet for a period of 25 years.

Later on, the largest Soviet military base abroad was created with a total area of ​​100 square kilometers. In the era of the Cold War, the USSR base in Cam Ranh Bay was the largest military stronghold of the socialist bloc in the Asia-Pacific region, opposing the two US military bases in the Philippines - Subic Bay and Clark Field.

From 1989, against the background of the changed alignment of forces in the world, the contingent stationed at the base was significantly reduced, the warships were withdrawn.

Until January 2002, the Camrany was considered to be a point of material and technical supply of the fleet, but the Russian military ships practically did not enter the bay. The last time two naval ships of the Pacific Fleet visited the Cam Ranh base from 5 to 10 in March 2001.

In 1998, the Vietnamese side proposed to introduce a rent in the amount of 300 million dollars per year for renting the base. This proposal was contrary to the Soviet-Vietnamese treaty, the rental base for it was free.

October 17 2001 of the year Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to evacuate the base early of January with the 1 2002 of the year in order to save money and not to renew the agreement with Vietnam, although the agreement on gratuitous deployment of the base expired only in 2004.

The Russian Navy left Cam Ranh in mid-May 2002. At that time, Vietnam declared that Cam Ranh Bay would no longer be a foreign military target. A year later, the Vietnamese government decided to reorganize the base into an international airport. Cam Ranh International Airport on the territory of the former Soviet naval base was opened on December 12 2009 of the year.

      I do not agree .......Medvedev: the creation of a base of Russian ships in Kamran is coordinated...... his first sane movement in politics after 08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX, he can do it right, only he needs to consult with his senior comrade, and not puff out his cheeks so as not to get in the way how it happened with Libya

        Yes, we have good relations with Vietnam, but there will certainly be political conditions, such as to protect Vietnam from China's regular territorial "raids" on the oil shelf.

    , So maybe not a creation, but a BASE RECOVERY. From the autumn of 1983 to August 1991, the 17th operational squadron was deployed in the port of Kamran, and from August 1991 to December 1991 - 8 OPESK. The Separate Mixed Aviation Regiment (OSAP) was located at the aerodrome; it included 4 Tu-95 aircraft, 4 Tu-142 aircraft, Tu-16 squadrons of various modifications of about 20 units, Mig-25 squadron (about 15 units), 2 transport aircraft type An-24 and 3 Mi-8 helicopters (data for 1986). In addition to this, a base for anti-submarine and missile weapons and a fuel and energy unit (technical and operational unit) was assigned to the regiment. see http://www.camranh.ru/history.html

    300 lyamas per year is not a pound of raisins, the fees are too big, all the more questions arise regarding the new civilian airport. And the most important question: why are we going to base there? We cannot saturate the country's direct defense yet.

          Good day everyone! The base is really cool with a developed infrastructure. With skillful use, it is difficult to find a better place in this region. But at the time when the decision to "fold" it was made, Cam Ranh was a pitiful sight. Everything gradually fell into decay. The base had to be reanimated by "rolling" serious money there or simply "dump" from the point. What was done. At that time I was in Phan Rang and could compare the state of the two bases of Vietnamese and ours. You yourself understand that everything is not in our favor. If, after all, the decision to return if adopted, jointly with Vietnam, it will be much better than the acquisition of the Mistrals.

    Again, questions about naval bases outside the Russian Federation. What forces will be deployed there? There are not enough modern warships, aircraft and air defense in its territory. And to pay such fabulous money only to say that we have a base abroad, where a squad of ships comes into the five-year period not too reasonably, it’s better to send these funds for the construction of the same corvettes and frigates

    Russia already needs to be in Kamrani, if not in a hurry. In the world, the political situation began to change rapidly and if you do not stake out your place in Vietnam, then it is not known which position Vietnam will choose in 5-6 years. And Russia will rebuild its fleet, despite the liberal skepticism that sounds even here in the comments

    In 1985, we were in Kamrani for 9 months in military service. The base is very convenient, under the control of the Strait of Malay and the US Navy Subic Bay base. U.S. aircraft carriers often go there. If used wisely, money is not a pity.
