They will serve in the Baltic, North and Mediterranean seas, as well as in the North Atlantic. ” In addition, about 530 sailors will be assigned for service on these ships.

“Increasing our deployment to NATO sends a powerful signal to our enemies that we are ready to respond to any threat and protect our allies. In 2016, special attention will be paid to the Baltic region, "

    Well, that's itching for them. They still do not understand that the times of the "Lady of the Seas" are in the irrevocable past. I should remind you.

      - And since the time of Ivan the Terrible, THEM has been "itching". And with the United States, England against Russia is playing dirty tricks on the distillation.
      PS And why does England always have the ball in our goal? Such a debt has accumulated!

            They are always at war with us.
            Previously, they fought against communism.
            Now with "aggression".
            They always have some reason to fight.
            For some reason it is important for them to destroy us.
            Either paranoid, or something stolen from us in the past.
            They are afraid that the theft will become public knowledge and we will punish them.

            Either I'm paranoid wassat

          5 ships? Something I did not find where they are going to be based? God forbid they climb into the Black Sea ..., Today they have a chance to strengthen NATO only off the coast of NATO ...

    The longer I live, the more I am convinced that:
    "Lord!
    How right was the propaganda in the USSR about the Anglo-Saxons !!! "((
    Truly - "Worse than a war with the British, there can only be friendship with them!"
    (Our ambassador to England said, it seems, in the beginning of the 20th century ...)

      These words belong to the Russian patriot. Here is his reflections on England. Aleksey Efimovich Vandam (Alexei Efimovich Edrikhin; March 17, 1867, Minsk province - September 16, 1933, Tallinn) - Major General (1917), military intelligence officer, writer, author of works in in the field of geopolitics, geostrategy and strategic geography. In exile he lived in Estonia, was a member of the Georgievsk Association and the Union of Mutual Assistance of former military men. He was in the ROVS, holding the position of chief of staff of the Estonian department of the union. He died at the age of 66 in September 1933 and was buried at the Alexander Nevsky cemetery in Tallinn.
      He considered it necessary to create a coalition of land powers - Russia, Germany and France - directed against the "refined despotism of England." I thought that in this way Russia could facilitate the solution of its geopolitical tasks. According to Vandam:
      having completed our offensive through Siberia with an outlet to the Yellow Sea, Russia could have become the same naval power in the Pacific Ocean as England in the Atlantic, and the same patrons of Asia as the Anglo-Saxons of the United States - the American continent.
      The works of General Wandam were practically forgotten shortly after their publication (there is only information that during the First World War “The Greatest of the Arts” was reprinted in Germany). At the beginning of the XXI century, there was a "second discovery" of Vandam's works, which were reprinted three times. "
      Something like that hi .

    sends powerful signal to our enemies that we are ready to respond to any threat and protect our allies

    The trouble is, you are your own enemies. Therefore, you send signals to your dull abyss, which answers you with your own stupidity. As grandmothers in Russia say to those they hate: "Yes, so that you die faster, damned!"

    It is not clear what kind of state Britain is. More to the point, isn't the United Kingdom all in NATO? Part of the fleet was given to NATO, and part of it was left to itself. All this is strange.
