Sergey Lavrov announces the appearance of the VMTO of the Russian Navy in Latin America

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in an interview RTR declared that in Latin America the Russian Federation will not open its military bases, but the items of material and technical support of the Russian Navy in this region may well appear in the foreseeable future.


Sergey Lavrov announces the appearance of the VMTO of the Russian Navy in Latin America


Sergey Lavrov noted that there is no need to open military bases in South and Central America due to the fact that the fleet must be dynamic. In this regard, it is the MTO clauses for fleet Russia, which will help carry out minor repairs of warships, rest personnel and carry out refueling.

Reflecting on precisely in which countries of Latin America Russian points of naval logistics could appear, Sergey Lavrov remarked:

We will look at the proposals, and where it will be optimal for our naval sailors to coordinate the presence of such points with the host countries, this will happen there.


Today, in fact, the only functioning point of the MTO of the Russian Navy in foreign countries is a point in Syrian Tartus. This is the 720-th PMTO located in the Mediterranean. Experts are confident that the presence of a Russian anti-tank logistics center in Syria was one of the links in the chain of facts that prevented NATO countries from launching a full-scale invasion of the Syrian Arab Republic.

From the beginning of the year, there are rumors in Russia that new fleet logistics points (the media initially mistakenly called them military bases) may appear in Cuba, Argentina, Nicaragua and Venezuela.

              Heh ... So who would explain to me how PMT is fundamentally different from a military base? It seems that only because the military base is a permanent deployment point for certain units, and in the case of PMT it will be a temporary deployment point.

          Lavrov is sitting, preparing for the next meeting with Kerry, and then Gromyko appears in front of him and says:
          “Well, son, prepare better, and in no way yield to the Americans, as I once did.”
          Lavrov in shock:
          - And you, Andrey Andreyevich, how is it, you died long ago?
          Gromyko, instructive:
          “And this is for you to know, son - a real diplomat will even agree with the devil.”

      The presence of the Russian fleet in the vast oceans resumes, and again close to the shores of the United States.
      Bravo, Lavrov! He has done such a job in recent months!

    Correctly and at each PMTO its powerful air defense, more anti-ship missiles, more ... and more ... and so on and so

      Here the difference is more in the legal status, since it is forbidden to place military bases of foreign states in many countries (according to their constitution and domestic laws), but with PMET everything is much simpler ... Which we apparently decided to use repeat

    More recently, the liberal public has been making noise over the Ministry of Defense plane in the Seychelles. Prior to this, Shoigu spoke about Russia's intention to increase the number of bases abroad. He said that negotiations were underway with a number of countries, including Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Seychelles and Singapore. Could it be that the bases flew in?

    Cuba first. True to the people loyal to Russia, after the betrayal of Yeltsin and Co. Cuba at the beginning of the 90, relations cooled. But all the same, the attitude towards the Russians is much more soulful there than in other countries where we are going to put the PMT. And what a stud in the ass of the USA sticks. After all, they still think that they drove the bear into the den and he will sit there. And hell to you gentlemen all over the face. We will also open our bases in Alaska and California.

      This is yes, but there is one small complexity of the ocean fleet, we have practically no left. Ships capable of serving in the world’s oceans can be counted on the fingers, but the scale is needed ..... After all, you’ll agree that it’s worthless to drive the same ships across all the 4 oceans, so there’s not enough motor resources request so you give the ships of the ocean class and a lot, and there you can visit overseas hi
