As part of the implementation of the decision of the Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu on the formation of a permanent grouping of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean, a detachment of Pacific ships fleet headed for the Suez Canal, the ministry said Friday.


"Currently, the squad as part of the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev, the large landing ships Peresvet and Admiral Nevelsky, the tanker Pechenga and the rescue tug Fotiy Krylov left the South China Sea and continues to move in the direction of the Suez Canal "- said in a statement, which leads ITAR-TASS.

Admiral Viktor Chirkov announced the formation in the Mediterranean of an operational connection on an ongoing basis on March 11. According to him, the task was set by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

“We have begun this work, this work has been going on, we have been doing it for a long time,” said Chirkov.

Earlier the head of the Defense Ministry said that the Navy Russia has every opportunity for the establishment and operation task force ships in the Mediterranean Sea on a permanent basis.

Details about the creation of operational connection of ships in the Mediterranean Sea began to speak in the Russian Defense Ministry in late February. It was noted that helicopter carriers of the Mistral type are considered as headquarters ships for the operational naval formation being created in this region.

The operational connection of ships and vessels of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea can amount to 10 units, it must obey the commander of the Black Sea Fleet. At the same time, another source familiar with the situation noted that such control could also be created at the Navy Headquarters, coordinated by the General Staff.

According to him, an inter-fleet grouping of ships of three fleets: the Black Sea, the Northern and the Baltic - could be located in the Mediterranean, following the example of the one that regularly conducts exercises in the eastern part of the Mediterranean, near the coast of Syria, and could count 6– 10 ships.

During the USSR, from 1967-th to 1992, the 5-I Mediterranean squadron of the Navy ships, which at various times from 30 to 50 ships and ships, operated in the Mediterranean Sea.

      hi Maksim! Everything is correct. If they said - “A” (That in the Mediterranean the fleet group will defile on an ongoing basis), you need to say “B” - to carry out this presence. Those. - the word with the deed should not diverge. Only then will they respect you.

    News plus. But I would very much like to read about the fact that our ships attacked the positions of militants in Syria. That our marines destroyed the top of the SSA.

      Normal combat duty, then he and the Navy to plow the seas throughout the oceans, otherwise the sea-movers will relax.
      As for the hostilities in Syria - there is nothing for the Russian guys to take half the bullets of the Akbarites in a foreign country, not for that. There are few real marines - they are also needed to protect our borders.

      This must be done by the Syrians themselves. Our task is to help them in this both morally and materially and intellectually, that is, to teach how. wink

    Good news!
    I only wish that this formation was not created to the detriment of the fleets of which it will consist. Although, frigates of projects 11356 and 22350 should finally come up, I think they can be used there)

    Good deed, no words.
    But it seems to me that the Black Sea people, and not the TF, should be "concerned" first of all. It’s time for the Black Sea Fleet to stake out a clearing in this dunghill, like the Mediterranean, otherwise the 14th fleet of Murikosia was delayed there.
    Well, for the Pacific, of course, such a trip will be useful so that the St. Andrew's Flag is forever imprinted in the memory of both Asians and the coast of Africa
    Russian Navy - VIVAT !!!

    Not enough warships and no submarines. And so it is quite normal work. Especially now.

    I hope that the ships sent there are the beginning of the implementation of the plan for real assistance to Syria and a loud statement that the interests of Russia and a number of other countries should be reckoned with, first of all, the NATO countries.
