    The Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and other adjacent seas are the responsibility of the Russian Federation, but not the United States !!!!

            I understood something else. If they do not show resistance, then they will climb on their heads, and if they cut into the tinsel in time, the guys become quite sane. For example, in 1988, the cruiser URO “Yorktown” and the destroyer “Karon” entered our territorial waters, from where they were expelled with shame by the crews of the TFR “Bezavezhetny”) and TFR -6. Remembering this lesson, even during the conflict with Georgia in 2008, the Americans did not dare to violate the Montreux Convention.

      Ours will soon leave the Mediterranean, as Kuzya and the company are not in a condition to be there permanently. And instead of one Amer, another comes to the Amer, and the squadron in the Middle East is assembled from all fleets and will soon disperse to its distant bases (and they are far, since Tartus is not a full-fledged base)

            “Our potential opponents call it the 'Black Hole' due to the very low noise emission and visibility of the submarine. To be undetectable is the main quality for a submarine. And this whole project really fits its purpose. ” And so on.

          And what to forget about him ...
          MPLATRK project 885 "Ash" - accepted into EXPERIMENTAL OPERATION and will be accepted into the combat composition of the Navy not earlier than the second half of this year due to incomplete tests of hydroacoustics, navigation, electro-mechanical part, missile complex "Caliber", as well as work to reduce noise from the purpose of bringing it to the parameters established in the TTZ. And this is after 20 (twenty) years of construction (founded in 1993)
          "the completion of the submarine tests, the signing of the acceptance certificate and the ascent of the Andreevsky flag at Severodvinsk are expected not earlier than September-October," however, "if the need arises," these terms may be shifted to November-December. "Everything depends on the successful solution of all assigned tasks, unnecessary haste to the detriment of quality
          unacceptable "

          In the same experimental operation, however, under Andreevsky
          The diesel-electric submarine "Saint Petersburg" of project 17.10.2013 "Lada" has been flagged (first in the Baltic Fleet, and since 22.04.2010 - in the Northern Fleet) for a very long time (almost four years - since 677).

          Arrival of Project 677 "Saint Petersburg" DARL to the Northern Fleet
          If this goes on, our Navy will turn into a large testing ground, where substandard products of the USC (OPK) will be endlessly brought to mind, which, like Severodvinsk,
          "not ready for combat missions."

            Well, that 885 and 677 projects are test benches and to consider these ships to be the main ones is simply blasphemy. The second building of the project should be considered as the head one. Moreover, the second building of the 885 project is already completely different. And about the time of construction, it’s like this: during construction, the project was changed five times and built on a penny per year

        Well ... and at once by 20%, but why waste time on trifles? In 2009, the dollar jumped by 50%, from 75 tenge to 150 per $, so why be surprised? Then Mr. Nazarbayev said: “They say that there will be additional devaluation. These rumors are being let out by the owners of exchange offices and those who were against the devaluation.”
        The head of the National Bank of Kazakhstan, KElimbetov, in October, December and January 2014, assured that "everything is calm in Baghdad," and here you are - "sign it."
        Today, February 17, KElimbetov again announced: - "National Bank will "interest" Kazakhstanis to keep money in tenge", again a distant" sight ", as I understand it, again" noodles "on the ears. But ordinary workers, basically really kept their pennies in tenge. Will they believe now?
        After all, people have lost not only 20% of what was in the "bins", they also lost in the form binding PENSION savings, which are 10% each month from the salary. At such a pace, after 5 ... 10 years, people will remain from these pension accumulations.

      Here is one of his "pearls":


      In fact, Bush never said such a thing, and the text you quoted is attributed to Karl Chapek.

        I had to rummage, you are right, this is from the works of Karl Chapek.
        Well, from the same place:
        ***
        Bush asks Putin:
        - Vladimir, what else would I read from Dostoevsky?
        - "Idiot".

      A boot is risky, it can dodge. The prototype did smile Here it is necessary to turn to folk wisdom - "A large ship - a large torpedo" laughing

    Has this tub, called Bush, already repaired its latches?
    After all, they lurked for a long time, that on an ultramodern ship, sorry, there is nowhere to lie ...

    After all, as you name the ship, so it and "to swim" will be...
    They were wrong with the name, oh wrong ...

    So soon we will see the second part of the Marlieson ballet. It is unlikely that Ukraine, rather Syria. For a long time there is no news from it. Or maybe Iran will democratize when there are 6 months allotted end there?

      Syria. Without options. We now have no time for them, the Olympics! And meanwhile, our "fellow countrymen" take all their hands there. Did you see how the Nokhchi tried to take the prison in Aleppo? Where another shishani went to the gurias. For those who have shoulder straps, interesting.

        Not conceived. All plans are in the basket. Everything is working out again, in spite of all "NATO". There is one hilarious moment - Panama ordered Russian weapons. Or maybe not hilarious?

    I feel soon a serious mess will be .. (how can the gates move in hockey ..))) The main thing is not to succumb to provocations ..! We earned the image of an adequate and strong power like .. (let this image work for us) Putin is bluffing professionally so far ( in the world game.) You need time to win ..!
