The resource notes that a report of similar content, entitled "The Russian Navy: Implementation historical Change ”, published for the first time in 24 years.

“Russia has already begun, and in the coming decade will continue to take serious steps to expand the capabilities of its military fleet. We are talking about substantial but limited participation in a wider range of international issues, ”the text of the document gives. RIA News.

At the same time, the report stresses that "the Russian fleet is now controlled by a new post-Soviet generation of officers."

“Starting with the 2000s, as the situation in Russia stabilized, (Moscow) focused on renewing the viability of its armed forces, including the navy,” indicates report author George Fedoroff. “The previously suspended construction programs are now moving towards completion, and new projects are starting to allow the fleet to be completed with submarines and ships of the 21 of the 20th century.”

The publication notes the fact that the document "repeatedly mentions the Caliber missile system", the spread of which "will allow the Russian fleet to seriously expand the possibilities for deterring and destroying enemy targets."

        Unfortunately, “it’s not over yet,” and if oil is still so cheap, it can be adjusted in the direction of reducing defense costs, and the savings will simply be eaten by the social sector. And this, unfortunately, is one of the possible scenarios for the development of the situation ... pah-pah.

          Yes, there is such a problem even without the development of its own industry, but for the time being, the military-industrial complex is managing to stop and transfer technologies to other sectors, and then there will be less dependence on oil.

          - Oil "flooded" since about 2005. This allowed Russia to quickly pay off its debts and raised the bar for ordinary citizens.

          And that’s it. From the word - at all. The Liberasts folded their paws: apparently they thought it was forever and reports about how awesome everything was in Libya and Syria, and there was no need to talk about the Saudis overwhelmed by television.

        I will correct it. In general, even without such a fleet and something floating. So their naval power will be calmer. Suddenly, as happened on the Aden raid in 2000, some unfortunate fiberglass motorboat loaded with explosives, their super-duper destroyer will blow up?

      What are you happy ??? You just don’t understand how budget sharing works. If tomorrow, intelligence releases a report stating that, for example, no threat comes from Russia or China, they will immediately cut back on military spending. So in most cases, all these intelligence reports that go to the press are for domestic consumption and for congress to scare the scary Russians so that they don't start cutting back on military spending.
      You logically think what ships were accepted and in what quantity that could threaten the US Navy

        Andrei, you consciously or not exclude such a component of increasing the combat effectiveness of the fleet as the modernization of the ship’s composition. The new filling and weapon systems make these ships quite competitive.
        Well and then, the corvette, armed with Caliber, is inferior to missile EM in seaworthiness and navigation area, and is not inferior to it in the power of wearable weapons.
        In general, the fifth point, the Amy feel that they are on the eve of a grand schucher: the PRC is building carriers, and may turn to us for weapons of destruction. And we will not refuse! And we ourselves are already approaching the line when we begin to build ships of the ocean zone. There are difficulties, of course, but they are surmountable. The start of construction of the AVU since 2019 is already being promoted. Anaerobic Viburnum on the way, The Leader matures, Borea and Ash-tree are slowly building ...
        In short, wait and see!

      We must be careful with the fleet. He is needed, but he is terribly ruinous
      for the budget of any country. Both in the construction process and in the process
      operation.
      Therefore, we must very carefully decide what is really important.
      In order not to get semi-completed ships, or completed and
      rusting at the berths.

        And no one argues, that is why we are not building aircraft carriers, and the submarine fleet is based on submarine submarines of the Varshavyanka project with “Calibers” that can carry a nuclear charge. The sobering blow of the Caspian Flotilla was also produced by small rocket ships, not very expensive. If possible, they upgrade or use unfinished cruiser hulls. Tu-160 was also rescued from under the Ukrainian guilyatine, though not all.

    The time has passed for a possible, almost unpunished, interference in the affairs of Russia both domestically and abroad. If the issue of strengthening and increased capabilities of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation has begun to constantly lurk, then not only the money that they want to knock out, but really surprise and fears play a role here.

    They really didn’t expect our response - with RTOs of all types with “Caliber” on board. Europe was "under the gun".
    And from the North Atlantic - and part of the US East Coast. Ships of 700 tons with a displacement are not so small, and quite seaworthy. The English corvettes of the northern convoys of the Second World War were no larger.

    George Fedorov flogs nonsense. If he really said that. Then the Swedish Navy is also a huge threat to the United States. They have as many as 3 Gotland! What a threat? Did the Russian Navy catch up with the US Navy? Fools are they all there or something ... And then what is not a threat to the United States? Each updated boat to coordinate in writing with americas?

    Dear, you should not trust these laudatory writers so much, firstly in the article itself not a single sample of the new ship is given, but only the Caliber rocket, and in rocket technology and the creation of rocket systems we have always been on an equal footing or slightly ahead, and secondly This article is said with a perspective on the development of the fleet, and knowing our economy at the moment, questions arise, how do experts know what, where, when, and how much more?

    Publicly available intelligence report ... Something is wrong here. These "leaks" have their own purposes. that's just what ... The simplest one is asking - to justify the increase in funding for their own aircraft. Our Navy, of course, is not a weak organization, but to threaten the states in such a way is complete garbage.

    We must be careful with the fleet. He is needed, but he is terribly ruinous

    Shipbuilding will revitalize related industries. Therefore, in the end we get not ruin, but profit in the country's economy.

      Will revive, I agree, but the processes for decades: (Well if we see. Or sons. It's bad if again you need to "tighten your belts and fasten" but in fact: those who were at the helm and "who's new" are to blame for everything?

    that's exactly why the fleet needs to be developed, so that we don’t be a threat, but be wherever we want.
