Cyprus started collecting signatures in support of the initiative on the possible creation of a military base of the Russian Federation

A letter was sent to Cyprus President Nikos Anastasiadis on behalf of the Cyprus Orthodox Human Rights Center. In the letter, the head of the organization, Marius Fotiu, and other members of the organization ask the president of the country to consider the possibility of placing a Russian military base on the island, which will allow them to resist possible inclinations from terrorist groups. Newspaper "News" reports that this document is available to the editors.


Cyprus started collecting signatures in support of the initiative on the possible creation of a military base of the Russian Federation


The motivation of representatives of the Cyprus Orthodox Human Rights Center is as follows: Cyprus from among all EU countries is closest to Syria, and there is a serious threat that extremists will choose Cyprus to carry out terrorist acts. The message says that the activists of the Orthodox center support the counter-terrorist operation carried out by Russia in Syria, and would like to have a strong and skillful comrade of the Cyprus army, as stated in the letter addressed to the country's president, “covered protective umbrella. "

It is reported that the Orthodox center of Cyprus began collecting signatures in support of its initiative.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has not yet commented on the possibility of locating a military base in Cyprus.

          such offers do not come up so easily. Perhaps this is an attempt to influence Turkey from Russia, for example, a response to the convening by the Turks of the Security Council for the bombing of the Russian Air Force, the village of Turkoman.
          It is unlikely that in reality someone will allow us to provide territory for the Russian Federation under the base. Pressure from Western countries will be colossal. And Cyprus depends heavily on Europe.
          But in any case, even the theoretical possibility of creating a base in Cyprus will spoil the nerves of the Turks seriously.

              It seems that Orthodox Cyprus thoroughly weighed the scales, on the one hand, its dependence on the West and Turkey, and on the other hand, a real threat to its physical destruction from the penetration of Islamic refugee Islamists in its territory. And he chose Russia.
              Orthodox Cyprus, it seems, is not up to fat, but only to stay alive. They no longer hope for NATO.

        I don’t know, can anyone remember, I visited Cyprus this summer (+ the brother-in-law of my brother-in-law lives there), so that I wrote some notes about this
        Well, start with that. that larger parasites than in Cyprus - probably only in Greece (and even that is a question)
        Cyprus lived offshore (70% of GDP) + the sale of the SUN as I call it.
        The whole industry is poached. at the expense of light grandmas and all of a sudden became experts in the sale of real estate.
        People relaxed 9 and why not? ) everyone is sitting on credit head over heels. No one pays anything. but the people are only 800t and the country is ruled by clans - there’s nothing to take from.
        Once they have already done a haircut of deposits, while the president has canceled loan debts to the population (understandably at the expense of whom, precisely due to foreign deposits (including Russian ones) - which disappeared on the same day.
        But the craving for life at the expense of others did not disappear, and the desire to work did not rejoice.
        13% of the country's territory is an English base (not a penny pays) northern Cyprus - 40 tons of Turkish soldiers + a base - they pay nothing the same.
        so now they’re looking for someone to rip off a woman like that, so that they can continue to drink Ouzo.
        Therefore, such as treatment, such as the fight against terror.
        They want money (which is not reimbursed). Russia, of course, could use this. but ...
        it will not happen
        Cyprus to the EU, England and Turkey to NATO.
        Therefore, the unfortunate Cypriots will apparently have to start working, otherwise the teeth on the shelf.

          Cypriots want grandmas. gratuitous and more, they are not at all interested in who will sit on their deputy.
          So the question is only in money, or rather in their quantity.
          As you know, who pays the money, he and the girl are dancing (I think few people believe that the Cypriots were inflamed with a fatherly love for Russia ... for no reason
          and if the question is in grandmas - then who will give more.
          Europe just needs to blink and there will be no trace of the economies of Cyprus.
          Russia will not be able to cover such losses with its base in life and no base will cost this money --- a conclusion?
          Cypriots - to WORK. the time has come . the freebie is over.

And the base would not hurt, up to the decision of some next president of the Russian Federation, to refuse to use it in order to strengthen universal values ​​and demonstrate the peaceful course of the Russian Federation. Although there is a financial question: surely the Cypriot Greeks will ask for a price no lower than the "protoucrops" at one time demanded to rent Sevastopol?

    You need to think carefully! You can understand Kipriotov, they need a counterbalance to the Turkish part of the island, the British need their questions, and Russia is not the country through which you can solve your problems with the Turks. Do we need to keep Turkey for yay .. and will there be enough funds to maintain a military base? (And look, we will turn into Americans with their 460 bases around the world) Do we need this?

    Hello!
    I have repeatedly visited Northern Cyprus (the one that is Turkish) and, without claiming to be reliable, I will say the following information:
    Cypriots say that an agreement on the deployment of a base of the USSR Navy was signed even before the division of the island! At the same time, by formal indications, such an agreement is still valid! Accordingly, on formal grounds, nothing needs to be re-signed, and Russia can legally place its base in Cyprus.

    You can add the following, the Cypriots are very much for placing on the island of the Russian military base! At the same time, the British, who have long had a serious military presence on the island, do not like and long for their departure!
    And yet, the Cypriots are sure that today the only obstacle to the reunification of the island is the Anglo-Saxons!

    The base (in Cyprus) will depend entirely on deliveries from the Big Earth (from Russia). The Turks will block the Straits Straight, and the Bulgarians and Romanians Airspace and how you deliver reinforcements and ammunition to this Base. That is, to Block Such a Base (in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea and NATO countries) - the Americas and their Satellites in Europe - It will not be difficult. Even in order to deliver our Missiles to Vietnam (during the Vietnam War), we had to negotiate with China (on the admission of our Complexes). And here, how we will help the Base in Cyprus, if around and everywhere (around Cyprus) NATO. The base needs to be organized Where there is a Common Border (or Unhindered communication (with one or another territory) by sea or land) - for example, in the DPRK (near Pyongyang) or in Vietnam (Kamran) or on the West Coast of India (somewhere under Surat (Gujarat) Yes, it is clear that the Cypriots (Greeks) would be VERY glad to have such a Russian Base near Bok - but no one has yet canceled the Geography (the location of this or that object on the map of the World).

    You need to think carefully! You can understand Kipriotov, they need a counterbalance to the Turkish part of the island, the British need their questions, and Russia is not the country through which you can solve your problems with the Turks. Do we need to keep Turkey for yay .. and will there be enough funds to maintain a military base? (And look, we will turn into Americans with their 460 bases around the world) Do we need this?

    and you don’t need to think. The scam is complete. It’s not necessary to go far for an example. What is there nowhere to invest money in Russia? Only ambitions and treasury in foreign banks will soon remain.

    Some kind of obscure organization began collecting signatures. How the collection will end is not yet clear, even if the signatures are collected, what this will mean and how it will affect politics is not clear. The Defense Ministry is silent, because there is nothing to discuss, but our local strategists have already calculated and planned everything.)
    In principle, in a country not so successful as ours, under the direction of ingenious demigods, but in a simple and normal country, under the direction of miserable, insignificant politicians, a similar issue would be resolved through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Just the Foreign Minister would send a request - how the Cyprus government will react to the possibility of creating a base and what they want for it. At the same time, we would be reminded of help in difficult times and hinted at ... But our demigods do not want to be like everyone else, only cunning plans, only hardcore.

    Disservice. This will lead to a sharp aggravation of relations with Turkey. Do we need this? A military base is useless there. Enough supply base.

    Perhaps my comment is late. After the Turks knocking down our plane, the speech
    not about the aggravation of relations, but about a military conflict.
