Media: Russian vessel "Yantar" makes American intelligence agencies nervous

51
The research vessel of the Russian Navy's Yantar, which the Americans have been following for more than 2 months, has reached the Caribbean islands, according to an article on the Washington Free Beacon website.




"The ship arrived in the capital of the Caribbean island of Curaçao - the port of Willemstad, and before that the ship’s route ran through international waters to the southeast of the United States," the article quotes. RIA News.

“The vessel is carrying out work on collecting data on submarines that are located at the US Navy’s nuclear submarine base in the US Kings Bay, Georgia. The ship is equipped with tackles for cutting cables and two deep-sea underwater vehicles, ”the author writes, citing a source in the American special services.

Recently, the Wyoming submarine headed for Scotland from the US base, which the Strategic Command openly announced. “Such actions are usually kept secret, but this time the US military may have done so because of the tense relations between Russia and the West,” the author believes.

For the same reasons, he explains the appearance of the Russian vessel at the American borders. “The Russians are most likely conducting cartographic reconnaissance of this part of the ocean in order to prepare for possible collisions with US submarines,” the Washington Free Beacon concludes.

      It’s just unusual for them that something is not American off the coast of America in the distance ... (?). It seems like grazing in the Black Sea or at the borders of Russia is more familiar, as it should.
      Nothing. Get used to it!

      This is a deep-sea hangar.
      The main caliber of the OIC is two deep-sea inhabited vehicles of project 16810 Rus and project 16811 Consul, which are capable of descending to a depth of 6000 meters.

    Yes, it's time. To replenish the database of submarine submarines, to conduct cartographic work for our submariners is a sacred matter.

      Submarine cables of the SOSUS system - sonar monitoring of the North Atlantic and communication cables are of interest to such ships in the first place. The USSR even built unarmed nuclear submarines for the same oelas.

    "Such actions are usually kept secret, but this time the US military may have done so because of tensions between Russia and the West."

    Although "exceptional", but here hedged. All the same, it is one thing to verbally erase Russia into powder, and another thing is suddenly what happens, which can lead to a serious conflict.

    Ssykuny! From one word, Russian is already put in his pants.

      Stunned by the joke - our muslims were more sobering with such screams, and unlike the New York airport, we had a real attack in Domodedovo in 2011. I am sure that it was there that many people crap for real. Lavrovsky cough, with the following text, with such "witticisms" is very appropriate.

    This is the source, of course!
    Firstly, he cannot even know what such a ship is armed with.
    And secondly, the data from the cables is now being removed by a little ah-a-ah-little overhead gadgets (you won’t even notice it on the cable!).
    Thirdly, judging by the number and diversity of antenna systems, it looks more like a ship of electronic intelligence. There used to be a fixed base in Cuba, now mobile on this ship

    The Russians will probably conduct cartographic reconnaissance of this part of the ocean in order to prepare for possible clashes with US submarines.

    Yesterday we talked about steps to counter the renewal of American nuclear weapons in Germany.
    There were many proposals for the deployment of Iskanders and Tu-160 in Cuba, and submarines in California.
    Today we see preparatory work from the Russian Federation.

    This makes me happy.
