Launch of the Russian-Chinese exercises "Sea Interaction-2013"

30
For the second year in a row, Russia and China have been holding joint naval exercises. In the course of events called “Maritime Interaction-2013” ​​ship and aviation Unions of the two countries will fulfill the combat training tasks assigned to them and work out cooperation at the international level. The past Maritime Interaction exercises were held in April last year, and the experience gained in their course became the reason for continued cooperation and the organization of new maneuvers.


The exercise began on Monday, July 8, and will continue for three days. All training operations will take place in Peter the Great Bay, on the Russian coast. It is worth noting, the Chinese ships came to the place of maneuvers a few days before the start of maneuvers. Last Friday, seven Chinese ships arrived at the port of Vladivostok: six destroyers of the 051C, 052C and 054A projects, as well as the Hongzehu integrated supply ship. Also on board the Chinese ships are several helicopters and a special forces unit. Interestingly, some of the training activities of the Chinese sailors held at sea, before entering the port. So, during the transition from the Chinese bases to Vladivostok, they worked out the transfer of fuel from an auxiliary vessel to warships.

After the arrival of Chinese ships in Vladivostok, a welcoming ceremony was held. In the two days remaining before the exercises, Russian and Chinese sailors took part in an extensive cultural program. So, on Saturday, everyone could visit the Russian missile cruiser Varyag and two Chinese destroyers, which hosted the Open Ladder Day. In addition, the Chinese Navy sailors during excursions visited and visited the sights of Vladivostok. On the last day before the exercises, various sporting events were planned: friendly football matches, yale races and tug of war. Also on the parade ground of the Pacific water station fleet there was a concert organized by naval artists.

The ships of the naval forces of China are not the first to visit Vladivostok - this is the seventh such visit. The cooperation of Russia and China in conducting naval exercises is also not a novelty. Such events are held regularly since the middle of the last decade. For example, in the 2005 year, the Peace Mission mission was held, during which the ships and marines of the fleets of the two countries practiced an anti-terrorist operation. In addition, in the past 2012, seven Russian ships together with the Chinese worked in the Yellow Sea as part of the Sea Interaction-2012 exercises. The current maneuvers are a logical continuation of last year.











On Monday morning, the joint headquarters of international maneuvers gave the command to begin the implementation of combat training tasks. Nearly two dozen ships from the Pacific Fleet and the naval forces of China took to the sea. In addition, more than ten planes and helicopters prepared for participation in the exercises. As the representative of the Pacific Fleet, Captain First Rank R. Martov, told the press, the program of the Sea Interaction-2013 exercises provides for several tasks of search and rescue, anti-terrorism, etc. character Thus, in the course of one of the training operations of the international ship group, sailors and marines must find and free a ship captured by pirates. Also, Chinese and Russian sailors will have to find a ship that, according to the legend of the teachings, is in distress, and provide it with the necessary assistance.

In addition to the search and release or rescue, the program of international exercises also includes other combat training tasks. This convoying of ships, replenishment of stocks at sea, as well as joint anti-submarine, air defense and anti-ship defense. As one of the leaders of the exercise, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Navy of Russia, Vice Admiral L. Sukhanov, noted, the “Sea Interaction-2013” exercise is the largest such event in stories military cooperation between Russia and China. All previous joint naval maneuvers of the two countries had a noticeably smaller scale. The goals of such military cooperation were described by Vice Admiral Dean Yiping, the head of the Chinese military exercise, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Chinese Navy, with just one phrase. According to him, it should be understood that the peaceful sea is the key to successful economic development of both countries, as well as peace throughout the world. Also, Dean Yiping noted that Russia and China should strengthen relations in the military sphere, thereby improving the security situation at sea.

At the same time, the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Chinese Navy said that the Chinese ships arrived in Vladivostok in order to learn how to act together with the Russian ones. Admirals L. Sukhanov and Ding Yipin are unanimous in the opinion that current exercises lack any political background of an aggressive nature. The purpose of the “Sea Interaction-2013” maneuvers is solely to strengthen international ties and fulfill the combat training tasks. Russia and China do not intend to demonstrate their naval power to third countries of the region or exert political pressure on them.

Two dozen warships and auxiliary ships will stay in Peter the Great Bay until July 10. After completion of the exercise, the ships of Russia and China will return to their bases, and the headquarters of the exercise will analyze their actions.

      But the sailors mooring showed their grayness in the video. Apparently they were not commanded by a horned specialist. The mooring end was dropped on top of the wound end, and had to start from the bottom, inside the ogon and thrown on the fall. Then the ends are not crushed by each other and can be given in any order. Now, until you give the top one, you won’t dump the others, just cut it. Crushed. And this is a gross error, sea gray.

    Yeah - so I immediately believed ... Next to Japan, with which there are a lot of controversial issues between Russia and China + a long-standing problem of Taiwan ... And they were here to catch terrorists who were not there at all !!! In light of the confrontation between the Navy of Japan and America, the Navy of Russia and China is beneficial to be allies at this stage !!!

      Yesterday, in Odessa, NATO-Ukraine Sea Breeze joint exercises began. Not as large as in the past. (I’ll tell you a military secret. Every year, studies are becoming increasingly thinner. There are fewer and fewer ships. From developed countries, there are none at all. Romanians, Bulgarians, Turks, Georgians, and the main shepherd of this motley herd, an arrogant-stately us nevi. And in contrast from other "guests", instead of the flag of the host country (a tribute), he lifted his own mattress pad the size of a basketball field to "dry".
      The most interesting thing, neither the authorities nor the headquarters of the exercises "noticed" such neglect of the arrogant Yankee to the host country. Some old people and Vitrenkovites actively came out with the slogan. "No NATO," "Yankee Go Home."
      Schaub, you bachilles are devotedly seeking out the bullets (snouts) of the "independent" and "independent" admiralies from the fleet, led by the commander of the fleet, vice admiral (lieutenant general) with a land military education (art school). We have . in Ukraine, there are more admirals than ships and traveling boats. To each foreman, midshipman, admiral on a boat. Only a couple of years and only the Moldovan patrol boat and the American cruiser will come to the exercises.

        so what are you ... Ukrainian Navy is developing lol
        Yanukovych out said that he would allocate the dough for this noble cause. Apparently he wants to close the first hundred of his villas, so you have to wash some money. Here and allocate billions of trillions of hryvnias. Ten years later, they will lay the boat of the project "God knows what" and after passing the state test, it will be able to bring a catch of up to two herrings a year !!!
        sadness and only ... so * fuck all that is inherited from the USSR. it’s a direct talent, and with * enchantment, I’m sure, they sleep like babies.
        Forgive me, comrades, for profanity, but there is no other way to express meaning.

    I myself live in Vladivostok, the eyes of Chinese destroyers pricked .., especially against the background of our marshes. This is not the point. that they are bad, but that there’s nothing new .. (And the destroyers. as far as I understand, the Chinese have a new generation. Maybe someone has a link to this project? It’s interesting to compare)) I hope to see 30 ships with a tail, the main thing is it wouldn’t be from the series - 10 rescue tugboats, 4 parade boats (ala Vikhr and Burun) .., 6 supply boxes, 5 - SKR, and the rest ... In general, I think they understood me. I hope there will be serious ships)

    In order to free for guests a more or less normal pier, our ships were removed away, leaving only one "Varangian". And in order not to disgrace the ships and ships with rusty sides cleaned even further.
    You look at the Chinese ships and understand that in terms of its combat potential this squadron is stronger than our surface component of the Pacific Fleet. But in modern times it’s not a desire to speak. The "extreme" ship of the 1st rank entered the Pacific Fleet in the distant 1992. 21 years have passed ("point, full point"), and the prospects for replenishing the naval forces of the Pacific Fleet with new ships are vague. We are waiting for the perfect corvette. A ship with a displacement of 1800 tons was built for 7 years, and was not even launched. Perhaps next year the fleet will include the reconnaissance ship Yuri Ivanov. It's sad like that.

    Judging by the speed of construction of new ships for the Pacific Fleet, our rulers "surrender" the "Far East" with a quiet glanders. The Russians are leaving, and the Chinese are filling in, right without soap (and rope) they are climbing ... My school friend served there. Now how old is how many years ago he returned, and then moved his adult son from there to Central Russia.

    If the Pacific Fleet did not receive a new ship, perhaps it would give a great advantage to other countries in the region. Behind, and this is bad! If there is no parity in the region, bad for you!

    Russian industry, and therefore the fleet, is in a terrible state. New ships are being built for years, if not decades, and only the lazy did not talk about technological lag. REMPAK-2012 exercises have been held relatively recently, to which Russia was invited. These are the exercises of the strongest countries of the Pacific region, which are headed by the USA, Japan, South Korea, Canada and others participate in them. The Pacific Fleet sent the frigate Admiral Panteleev, a tanker and a tugboat there. Why Admiral Panteleev? Yes, this is the newest surface ship of the Pacific Fleet. It was built already in 1992. The remaining ships are even older: they were put into service already in the 1980s. But since the fleet command did not believe that the ship could easily reach Hawaii, they gave him a tugboat. Just in case. And a whole tanker, since domestic ship engines “eat” a lot of fuel. In a word, a shame. Earlier, the fleet was disgraced during a joint exercise with the PLA, when the Chinese demonstrated new modern ships, and the Russians drove an exhibition of Soviet antiques. The Chinese press then abounded with pejorative ratings. Our neighbors are not fools, they see everything.
    I must say that new ships for the Pacific Fleet are being built. As many as two. In 2015, the project 20380 “Perfect” corvette should arrive, and in 2014, the Vladivostok helicopter carrier (Mistral class). Another corvette 20380 laid, but when it goes into operation is another question. After all, the same “Perfect” has been under construction since 2006, during the golden years of Putin's “stability”. For all the time since 1991, only one ship was built and finished from scratch, the R-29 missile boat (built in 1992-2003). The remaining ships and boats are the completion of the Soviet backlog.

      And to build alliances, I think it should be with a partner who does not constantly throw you, there remains (from serious countries) China alone. I think it’s not worth reminding about the need for unions, since our main bearer of democracy is getting closer and closer.

        Well, you cheated a little about kidalovo. The kiddies on the part of the whalers are unintentional, look at their "carbon copy" - Kalash, MiG, etc. without any notorious licenses. First of all, they promote their interests and I think if the union will interfere with these interests they will send. Russia, yes, in the east you need a calm and friendly neighbor. But “east is a delicate matter,” I would say east is unpredictable! sad

    to stupid thoughts. 5-10 ultra-modern cruisers will help us a lot against the “global strike” of mattresses or the PLA invasion? they won’t help in any way. Pralno gdp does what it invests to the maximum in the Strategic Missile Forces and the army. Russia is primarily a continental power, and if you want ships, then buy model aircraft carriers and let them in the bathroom.
