Caspian flotilla alert

36
According to the "Independent newspaper"Caspian flotilla raised by alarm to verify the readiness of naval forces. Tactical exercises will continue for seven days.


“About ten raid minesweepers, boats and support vessels, as well as more than 400 sailors of the flotilla, will participate in the exercises, which will last seven days. The shipboard trawling group will have to go more than 350 miles along the Volga-Caspian canal into the Caspian Sea and perform combat training exercises at sea polygons, ”the press service of the Southern Military District said.

The first stage of the exercise provides for control reconnaissance search and the subsequent elimination of minefields using contact and non-contact trawls. Then the trawl group will conduct a group of support vessels, the role of which is performed by the hydrographic vessels of the flotilla, behind the trawls to force the minefield.

In addition, artillery firing at floating mines, as well as mine explosions in surface and submerged positions, are planned for the exercises.

The ship crew of the minesweepers is headed by the brigade commander, Captain First Rank Kirill Taranenko.

It is worth noting that on April 22 a conference was held in Moscow with the participation of foreign ministers of the Caspian states, at which the preparation of the Fourth Caspian Summit was discussed. The meeting was attended by Sergey Lavrov (RF), Mohammad Javad Zarif (Iran), Elmar Mammadyarov (Azerbaijan), Yerlan Idrisov (Kazakhstan) and Rashid Meredov (Turkmenistan).

“Today we discussed and partially resolved issues on the delimitation of water spaces taking into account the agreements that have already been reached in the framework of multilateral (five-sided) negotiations concerning the delimitation of the bottom,” said Sergey Lavrov at a press conference following the meeting.

Lavrov also stressed that responsibility for the state of affairs in the Caspian region lies solely on the shoulders of the five Caspian states.

      There are several ships in the Caspian Sea armed with high-precision Caliber-NK missiles, which have a firing range of more than 2000 tons km. So this is far from a trifle, but serious shock complexes.

    Probably of course.

    "On average, the depth of the Dnieper on the territory of Kiev is from 3,5-4 up to 18-19 meters. The minimum depth of the river, about 4 meters, is between the Paton Bridge and the South Bridge, and the maximum is below the Pedestrian Bridge, about 19 meters. "

    "The relief of the northern part of the Caspian is a shallow undulating plain with banks and accumulative islands, the average depth of the North Caspian is 4-8 meters, the maximum depth does not exceed 25 meters ..."

    "... the flotilla will receive two ships a year. Also, the flotilla should be replenished with new landing ships with draft 1,5 m and at a high speed of 40 knots and new minesweepers. "

    Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that units of the Southern and Western military districts of the RF Armed Forces began exercises in the areas bordering Ukraine.
    “In the areas bordering Ukraine, the exercises of the battalion tactical groups of combined arms units of the Southern and Western military districts began. The troops work out the issues of making marches on their own and deploying them to fulfill their mission, ”ITAR-TASS quoted the Minister of Defense as saying.

    “In addition,” added Shoigu, “aviation will perform flights to practice operations near the state border.”

    According to the head of the department, in a military operation against civilians in the south-east of Ukraine there is a grouping of Ukrainian troops of more than 11 thousand people, it uses 160 tanks, more than 230 infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers, at least 150 guns, and a large number of aircraft.

    “The situation in Ukraine is of serious concern. On April 22, the new Ukrainian leadership began the so-called active phase of the operation on the southeastern borders of Ukraine. There are already human casualties, ”ITAR-TASS quoted Shoigu as saying.

    He said that “units of the National Guard are acting against civilians, as well as battalions from extremists of the Right Sector (Kharkov, Slabozhanets), the formation of the Donbass battalion has begun. Suppression of civilian demonstrations is carried out by fighters of special forces of the Ukrainian security service, as well as the Ministry of Internal Affairs, deployed to Donetsk and Lugansk, ”the head of the military department said.

    According to the Minister of Defense, troops from the west were deployed to the east of Ukraine.

    “On the border with Russia,” he continued, “there are motorized maneuver groups designed to conduct sabotage activities. From the armed forces, the 17th Tank and 24th Mechanized Brigades redeployed from the west of Ukraine are participating in the operations. ”

    At the same time, said Shoigu, “the self-defense units in southeastern Ukraine have a little more than 2 thousand people, about 100 units of automatic weapons, mainly captured in the district police departments and the Security Service, as well as several dozen smooth-bore hunting weapons ".

    “The forces are clearly unequal,” the defense minister said. - The go-ahead for the use of weapons against civilians in your country has already been given. If this war machine is not stopped today, this will lead to a large number of dead and wounded. The declared exercises of NATO forces in Poland and the Baltic countries do not contribute to the normalization of the situation around Ukraine. ”

    “We are forced to respond to such a development of the situation,” the Minister of Defense concluded.

    “From today in the areas bordering Ukraine, the exercises of the battalion tactical groups of combined arms units of the Southern and Western military districts have begun.

    According to Shoigu, the situation with the use of force in southeastern Ukraine is worrying.

    “We are forced to respond to such a development of the situation,” the Minister of Defense said.

    - On the border with Russia there are motorized maneuver groups designed to conduct sabotage activities. From the armed forces, the 17-I Panzer and 24-I mechanized brigades redeployed from the West of Ukraine participate in operations, ”added Shoigu.

      As I understand it, a missile boat is a pug that can tear an elephant! But it’s not a floating tank! But on the Caspian itself I saw small vessels with impressive artillery, low draft, and good armor! On the shore, working from twin machine guns is the thing!
