Donuzlav sketches. In the wake of events

46



From Sevastopol to Donuzlav we headed early on the morning of March 23, on Sunday. The events there were in full swing - a part in Novoozernoye was already taken, but there were still three Ukrainian-flagged ships on the raid of the lake, determined not to give up. The plans were to first drive into the pier and capture the beautifully lying Ochakov, then move towards the Novoozerny and somewhere in those parts to see and shoot the remains of the Naval Forces on the roadstead.

Adjustments made the weather. Morning mist was strong and dense over Donuzlav, such that nothing was visible in 50 meters. “Ochakov” from the pier then only barely saw his stern, then disappeared completely in the shroud. Stood. Smoked. They waited for it to resolve.

But then, after a while ... At the entrance to the lake, around Ochakovo, a real war began, literally in 100 - 150 meters from us, which we very well heard, but because of the dense fog we did not see from the word "absolutely". The noise of the turbines on the right, from the lake. The noise on the left, from the sea. Several times - the wail of sirens, the hooters of cars from the opposite shore. Some kind of metallic sounds from the flooded Ochakovo. Screams and checkmate. From time to time, from the sea, when the mist dispersed a little, the silhouettes of a sea tug or a missile boat were visible. On a loud broadcast from the tug - “the crew is ready to repel an attack,” on a missile boat - “combat readiness number one” ...

Everything went on for about half an hour, then it was quiet. Subsequently, I learned that it was then, on Sunday morning, that the MTShch “Cherkasy” found a hole between the “Ochakov” and the flooded VM-Coy, tried to leak into it, but our tugboat was pushed back.

Well, after another half an hour, when, alas, it was all over, the fog slowly began to dissipate ...

2. General view of the ikebana at the entrance to the lake - "Ochakov" and one of the flooded VM-approx.



3. VM-ka bigger.



4. Views on Ochakov from different angles - to the right, from the bottom ...



5. ... and to the left - from the side of the deck and superstructures.



6. View towards the lake. Sea-sweeper "Cherkasy" (left), base-sweeper "Genichesk" (right). Somewhere on the horizon, "Konstantin Olshansky" was seen, but so far that it was not possible to take a clear picture of him.
Over the next couple of days they will be dealt with completely.



7. When the fog began to dissipate over the sea, it turned out that the tugboat and the missile boat were not alone :) TFR "Pytlivy".



8. And here are the main participants of the "war" from our side. Sea tug MB-304, missile boat P-60.



9. MB-304 is coming closer ...



10. ... and will try on the future "main caliber" - two fire hydrants.



11. Also closer to the "Ochakov" and rocket boat pulls up.


12. On the nose - a special assault device of tires :)

Donuzlav sketches. In the wake of events


For the next hour, nothing more interesting happened. So we boarded the car and drove back to Sevastopol.

      I don't understand why it was necessary to sink the ships, they will have to be raised. How could the Ukrainian vessels harm? Well, they would have gone to Odessa, as "Sagaidachny", they were given away anyway.

        All state property was subject to nationalization, material values ​​after all. And here in Kerch they wanted to steal a sailing training vessel "Chersonesos" to Ukraine on the sly, but they managed to stop it in time. Sistership of the Russian training frigates "Nadezhda" and "Pallada". Unfortunately, in recent years, the sailboat has simply been docked in the port due to financial squabbles of the Ukrainian government. Well, now I hope the cadets will go to sea for practice again.

          Hi, Igor. It's not entirely clear to me how an unarmed tug could
          push the minesweeper back? In terms of displacement, the trawl is no less than a tugboat, but in spirit it is much less to see.

              This situevina reminded an anecdote. The ship leaves for sailing. There is such a tradition after leaving the pier, as a sign of goodbye, they give a strong beep. The team asked for a very strong beep. gone". But if they wanted to fight, they could at least prevent the capture groups from landing on board. And so only on one ship they turned on the deactivation system and wet the capture group. If the team does not want to resist, why did they even take the oath. There is such a concept of HONOR. As the song says "what is the word honor, somewhere is sound, but somewhere is". But if it is not there, then there is not only the fleet, but also the country pipe.

            No need to say! From the look, the rooftop completely slides out, like from a woman under certain circumstances. Inside like a butterfly flies. "Scarlet Sails", "Running on the waves", "Cutty Sark", tea clipper, etc. There is something in the sails, some kind of mysticism.

    I also don’t understand the point of drowning Ochakov and closing the bay. The Ukrainian Navy did not pose a special threat to the Russian Navy. From the point of view of property - all military equipment (ships, tanks .. and so on) - are the property of Ukraine, even after the referendum. Even if someone hoists the flag of another state on a ship, it does not mean that the ship has changed its owner. (There is no officer of the war - between the Ukrainian and the Russian Federation, therefore it is impossible to consider it as a capture, a military prize, a privateer prize). In any case, the ship must be given to the country of ownership.

    in place of a Ukrainian sailors - I think it was necessary to proudly go to battle with the raised flags (like a Varangian). The tug on the way - to drown, the boat - to drown, well, then how ... fate will pull.

      Proudly with their flags raised, seeing that they would be captured, they could only flood. Like a VARIAN. Yes, only in spirit they are not "Varyag". It's easier to give up.

        I think, even under the orchestra. :)

        They also have weapons. When trying to capture - they have the right to open fire to defeat. Just like our Russian sailors when trying to capture our ships.

        The question is different, what Ukrainian sailors cannot and do not want to die for their Fatherland.

      The Crimean naval base was located in Donuzlav during the USSR. The connection of minesweepers, landing ships, including on the VP. Naval aviation, auxiliary fleet, serious rem. base. Having flooded two old ships at the exit from the lake, we left behind all the ships and vessels (which the Navy had not yet managed to sell, drown, cut, etc.) and more or less remaining infrastructure.
      Tanks, cars and other equipment is a trifle, which we have in full. And try to build the same minesweeper or landing ship. And provide lost auxiliary vessels. Find the extra float.
      Now, if it had not been blocked, then most of the above-mentioned chlaty "naval commanders" drove them to Odessa, Kherson, Nikolaev to rot further. They don't give up theirs.

      Eka you grabbed! Half of Ukraine is Russian along with the lands, and this does not mean that no one knows about it and does not draw conclusions.
      And in order to behave like this in battle, you need not just take an oath, you need, as the British say, "to mow the lawn for three hundred years."
      Why should a Ukrainian sailor give his life? For the politicians in power? For the people? So in Crimea there is also a people, and for whom this people is already clear to everyone.
      My IMHO - to give my life, the oath and order is not enough. As our megasupermonster Suvorov said, every soldier should know and understand his maneuver.

    And I still remember "Ochakov" alive. I was little and my parents and I were on vacation in Feodosia. He stood there in the roadstead, and we, sailing on a pleasure boat, examined him through binoculars. Impressive))) But I will say so, until the ship was cut into metal, its life goes on. Even now "Ochakov" is on guard for the interests of Russia and Crimea. There are no "former" colonels))) Glory to the heroic ship !!!

    it’s interesting, you laugh laughing supposedly the Ukrainians do not have the Oath, the impression that it was necessary to shoot the entire ammunition and blow up everything and everything. Then you were supportive? Or mats re-moth-they say suicides or killers ..
    shoot their own (I'm sure that there are Crimean crews or a lot of them) - was it necessary? Just because some Ukrainians are not ready to kill other Ukrainians?
    I have some kind of unpleasant feeling - now everyone is proud that in the Crimea bloodless and chuckle at the Ukrainians - they say the warriors are still those ... well, yes ... they would drown everyone in the blood - that would be heroes ...
    This is not what they wanted. And the oath was to protect the people, and not to shoot at him.
    We have in the Practical sailboat Druzhba .. everyone is waiting for restoration ..
    It’s so beautiful when he goes on a raid ...
