    Maybe there is a preparation for the transition: Astrakhan - Rostov - Middle-earth through the channel? Nowadays (80-s), marines from the Black Sea Fleet, together with the KFOR, went to the Caspian in this way ...

      Volgodonsk has a draft of 2 meters, Iranian boats are unlikely to have more, they can reach Moscow.

      according to our GDP on the Volga, Don, and the system of rivers and canals, they, if desired, can even get to the Baltic through St. Petersburg! In general, for these GDP, we have merchant ships of a mixed river / sea sailing with a displacement of 5000 tons and a draft of up to 5 meters, so ...
      in Soviet times, they built submarines in Gorky (Lower), which then naturally went into the sea, but they definitely didn’t have an 3 meter! :))

    Russia shows the US and NATO that Russia and Iran are strengthening friendly and military ties. In the case of preparations for the US and NATO aggression against Iran, they will have to take into account the fact that Russia will not stand aside.

      fit where ??? :))) This BOATS !!!, although missile. You can still attach a batch of our MANPADS there, if you wish, but C-300 ... Did you even see a car from C-300? there a cargo tank of the tank landing type is needed, with a ramp. I think that the dimensions of the hold of our simple Caspian bulk carrier will not even fit, it won’t.

        The main thing is a thick hint of understanding on the issue of s-300 supplies and the related lawsuit against the Russian Federation - they will agree.

    Do not rise high - until the first bridge. When our ships are distilled, the masts and radar are removed from them.
    I don’t understand what is the connection between the ships of the Caspian flotilla, the Iranian warships and the Black Sea missile boat indicated in the photo?

    It’s a pity I don’t live in Astrakhan, I would go to meet and greet.
    Moscow is a port of five seas.
    I represent the faces of the Geyropeytsy when the Europeans in the Baltic states like hell out of a snuffbox Iranian boats appear))

      They should carry out exercises, "to prevent piracy in the Caspian." I think there will be no harm.
