BOD "Vice Admiral Kulakov" became part of the operational connection of the ships of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea

Today, a large anti-submarine ship (BOD) of the North fleet "Vice Admiral Kulakov" became part of the operational formation of the ships of the Russian Navy, operating on an ongoing basis in the Mediterranean Sea.


To the south of the island of Cyprus, the Northern Fleet ship will meet with the BOD of the Pacific Fleet Admiral Panteleyev.

In the course of joint actions, the crews of large anti-submarine ships will work out elements of the detachment's anti-submarine defense using ship-based helicopters.

BOD "Vice-Admiral Kulakov" - the second warship of the Northern Fleet, performing tasks as part of the inter-fleet grouping of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea. Earlier in its structure operated a large anti-submarine ship of the Northern fleet "Severomorsk".

From the main base of the Northern Fleet of the city of Severomorsk BOD "Vice-Admiral Kulakov" came 11 May. During the long voyage, the North Sea residents became participants in the Pomory-2013 international exercise, visited the ports of Bergen (Norway), Liverpool (Great Britain) and Lisbon (Portugal).

        The response to the American submarine, and it seems to me, will cover the deployment of the S-300 systems, which the Israelis "plan" to destroy before being deployed to the base.

          Well, at the expense of the enemy nuclear submarines, you can be calm with this, our BOD will cope!

            It is good that we are present in this region. If the ship is on a campaign, he lives, the crew gains experience. By the way, recently a couple of American submarines were sent there, also to this approximately district. I think it’s not a bad training if you find them. Good luck guys ;)

      Syrian army takes control of two villages northwest of Aleppo



      As part of Operation Northern Storm, on June 9-10, Syrian army units blocked large groups of Islamists in the northwestern suburbs of Aleppo. The retreat routes for bandit groups from Kafr Hamra, Maarat Artik, Al-Mansur and Kafr Dail were cut off. Intensive fighting continues in the cities of Khreitan, Anadan, Hayyan and other localities north of Aleppo.

      During a series of special operations by Syrian troops in the western part of the war zone (in Al-Mansur, Kafr Dail and Marat Artik), the gangs suffered heavy losses in manpower and equipment.

      The army command confirmed the completion of the cleansing of two districts west and north of Aleppo: two small villages in the area of ​​Tell Al-Schweichna and the village of Kilikia. In both areas, security has been restored. A number of quarters in Kafr Hamra, Al-Mansur, Kafr Daile have also been freed.

      Meanwhile, north of the Khandarat region, Islamists are trying to counterattack. On June 10, more than a hundred militants again attempted to storm Aleppo Central Prison and the area of ​​the Agricultural Research Institute. All attacks were repelled, the Islamists with losses retreated to their original positions.

      On the same day, militants of the Jaysh Muhajirin and Jabhat al-Nusra groups once again tried to storm the complex of buildings on the territory of the Ming airbase. According to extremists from the North Caucasus, they managed to capture a water tower and a radar complex. The militants were personally led by the leader of "Jaysh Mukhadzhirin", the Ingush bandit Umar al-Shishani, 15 suicide bombers took part in the attack.

      In the city of Aleppo, fighting continues in the Kurdish areas of Sheikh Maksud and Bustan Al-Bash, as well as in the central region of Bustan Al-Qasr. In the latter, the military destroyed a car bomb and all nearby militants. Most of the murdered bandits are foreign mercenaries.

      Syrian army liberates Wadi Al-Sayyah district in Homs



      The command of the Syrian army announced on the eve of the complete liberation of Wadi Al-Sayyah Street and the adjacent quarters of the Hamidiya region. Vast areas came adjacent to the control of army units, adjacent to the city center on one side and gangster enclaves in Juriyet Al-Shayyah and Al-Khalidiya on the other.

      By liberating Wadi Al-Sayyah Street, government forces cut off gang units' access to the city center and secured the southern areas of Homs, which were periodically bombarded.

      According to the SANA agency, on June 11, units of the Syrian armed forces continued to persecute armed groups in the area of ​​Bab-Hood, Al-Karabis, and Al-Khalidiya. In the latter, the bandit group in its entirety was destroyed. In other gangster enclaves, the militants also suffered heavy losses.

      On the same day, intense fighting took place in the area of ​​the city of Ar-Rastan, as well as in the villages of Deir-Ful, Akrab, Tel-Dahab, and in the suburbs of Homs, Deir Al-Kabir and Telbis.

      Israel will not attack Syria, even if they place the S-300



      Israeli Deputy Interior Minister Faina Kirshenbaum said the day before that her country's authorities did not intend to strike at Syria even if Russian C-300 anti-aircraft missile systems were deployed there.

      The politician decided to refute the opinion of American experts, replicated by journalists, newsru.com reports with reference to ITAR-TASS.

      "This is the speculation of experts. Israel can only defend its borders, we have no interest in attacking Syria. We are all watching with excitement what is happening in Syria. We are worried about the exit of Austrian peacekeepers from the borders of the Golan Heights, since they were among the best forces that were on our border, "- said Kirshenbaum.

      The deputy minister hopes that the UN will find an alternative to the Austrian peacekeepers who left the Golan Heights after the Syrian opposition seized the Quneitra checkpoint. During the battles for Quneitra, one artillery shell fell on the UN peacekeeping camp. Then one Filipino soldier was wounded.

      Commenting on the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin to replace the Austrian troops with Russian ones, Kirschenbaum recalled that international documents fix which peacekeepers can go to the Golan. "Firstly, there are international treaties that define what forces there can be. If I am not mistaken, it is noted there that the countries represented in the UN Security Council cannot be on this border," the politician said, noting that Israel will welcome "any troops that come in and help keep calm on this border."

      Syrian militants kill 60 villagers in Deir ez-Zor



      About 60 residents of the village of Khatla in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor were killed on Tuesday, June 11, when Islamic militants seized the village. The village of Khatla, inhabited by Shiite Muslims, decided to fight back the extremists and repelled several attacks by gangs.

      As a result, the village was captured and militants killed dozens of local residents. The Islamists themselves lost about ten people dead. According to opposition sources, all the dead residents of the village of Khatla were armed, so they can not be considered civilians.

      The London-based Syrian Human Rights Monitoring Center reported that armed Shiites from the village of Khatla attacked a militant stronghold, killing two of them, and only after that the bandit group decided to take control of the village.

      The fighting in the province of Deir ez-Zor formally located on the periphery of the Syrian conflict. However, despite the dominance of the Islamists in most villages, government troops and the local militia, to the best of their ability, resist the Islamist gangs.

      Militants are also moving through the province of Deir ez-Zor to neighboring Iraq, where al-Qaeda bandits have recently begun to activate. The terrorist groups Jebhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq, despite their differences, are actively cooperating. Militants from both are fighting both in Syria and in Iraq.

      Iraqi border guards continue to build a line of fortifications on the border with Syria, an important part of which are anti-transport ditches that impede the penetration into Iraq of traditional pickup trucks with heavy machine guns and anti-aircraft guns.

      By the way, a question for specialists: during the Union there were separate groups for actions in the Mediterranean Sea? I don’t remember something. In my opinion, the Black Sea Fleet was engaged in this. If not correct

    http://www.ng.ru/editorial/2013-03-18/2_red.html - Где взять корабли для новой 5-й эскадры?
    Recently, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that the Russian Navy "has all the possibilities to create and ensure the functioning of the operational connection of ships in the Mediterranean on an ongoing basis." And last Sunday, Admiral Viktor Chirkov, Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, announced that the naval group in the Mediterranean would consist of 5-6 ships and be controlled from Sevastopol. And that the Navy has already embarked on the mission.
    The news that the St. Andrew flag is returning to the Mediterranean, naval sailors pleased. Although, presumably, only admirals, military pensioners and historians today remember the 5th squadron of the USSR Navy, which operated in the region from 1967 to 1992 and consisted of 30-50 pennants (!). To revive, if not the 5th squadron, but at least a small connection of 5-6 ships, is already a great success. True, there is some doubt that the "Mediterranean" plans of the Ministry of Defense are well calculated.
    Firstly, these same 5-6 units are needed. Admiral Chirkov said that "the frigates and cruisers will form the basis of the group." But where to get them? At the January inter-naval exercises in the Mediterranean, the Russian Navy detachment consisted of three submarines, eight warships and 15 auxiliary vessels. This, of course, is more than the supposed "new 5th squadron", but after all they collected ships from all fleets, having driven out even the units put into operation back in the 60s in the sea. At the same time, half of the surface ships of the group were landing ships. But modern cruisers and frigates in the Navy today are one, two and miscalculated. And it is hard to believe that by 2015, namely at this time, the Mediterranean squadron should be formed, the necessary number of ships will leave the slipways.
    The Minister of Defense also acknowledges the problem, according to whom "the general state of affairs in the Navy cannot be called satisfactory." “For a long time, the fleet did not receive new ships and vessels,” said Sergei Shoigu at the meeting. “Many ships and vessels have restrictions on the use of weapons and military equipment.”
    Secondly, Russia on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea does not have a functioning base for supplying a fleet that constantly runs in this water area. Yes, of course, there is a logistics support point (PIT) for the Russian Navy ships in the Syrian port of Tartus. But today it is, in fact, only two floating piers in not very good condition. In order to repair them and create a modern support base, you need to invest hundreds of millions, and not rubles, but dollars. Meanwhile, this could be an investment in nowhere - a civil war has been going on in Syria for several years, the winner is unknown, and it is unlikely that the Russian fleet will be welcomed here if the opposition wins.
    Thirdly, there are managerial issues. According to Chirkov, the General Staff of the Navy is already analyzing the problems of creating a Mediterranean compound. “Personnel will be trained to manage the operational formation, which will later be sent to the Mediterranean Sea,” the military leader said. But it is not a fact that before 2015 such personnel will have time to prepare.
    Finally, as the commander-in-chief noted, the command of the Navy will offer the leadership of the country, following the example of the Mediterranean detachment, to create operational formations on a permanent basis in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. That is, one operational group has not yet been created, it is not known where to get ships for it (unless, of course, ship rusty “iron” to the sea), and the admirals are ready to storm the expanses of two more oceans. Where even PMTO like Tartus is not.
    So it seems that this is not a specific project, but a purely political statement, saying, "Russia is focusing." And that the named term for the deployment of the operational connection of the ships was determined on the basis of the "five" P "principles - floor, finger, ceiling and last year's binder.

    For many military sailors, after many years of inactivity near the wall, this will be a useful experience and will make sense the existence of surface forces. If the officers of the SV and Air Force had several years of intensive combat growing up in the Caucasus, the sailors did not have to boast of special achievements for the past 20 years, with the exception of submariners on combat duty. Now they may not chase the useless Somalis on motorboats, but they can really do a lot for Russia if they manage to reinforce with their presence the efforts of the Foreign Ministry to prevent a military invasion of Syria.

    Yes, it's okay. It's just that it has ceased to be habitual today, especially for the "young". It has been said that a connection (association) will be deployed in the Mediterranean on a permanent basis. It would be nice to have something like the former 5th Squadron, which included 6 operational formations. Then we can talk about the presence of a real instrument in the region.
    And in Syria, as I personally think, the main thing is not to get any UN resolution, by analogy with Libya.

    The ship was laid down at number 626 on November 4, 1977, at the A. A. Zhdanov Shipyard (now Severnaya Verf Shipyard) in Leningrad (although it was added to the list of the Navy on July 13, 1977). It was launched on May 16, 1980, entered service on December 29, 1981, and joined the fleet on February 9, 1982.
