"Syrian Express" and its ships and vessels

56
One of the most unique Russian highways built in the last 5 years is the Novorossiysk-Sevastopol-Tartus port (Syria). It is on this route that the so-called "Syrian express" runs, having already made several hundred flights.


In many ways, thanks to him, Syria today still exists as a country. Therefore, it seems to me, the special mention is worthy of the ships and vessels that are part of the Syrian Express. And these are not only warships, but also civilian ships, sometimes with very unusual history.

Black Sea Fleet:

1. "Azov"



2. "Caesar Kunikov"



3. Yamal



4. "Nikolay Filchenkov"



5. "Novocherkassk"



6. "Saratov"



7. Kielctor vessel "KIL-158"



Acquired by the Navy and added to the list of auxiliary vessels of the Black Sea fleet:

8. “Kyzyl-60” (earlier - “Smyrna”, Turkey)



9. "Kazan-60" (earlier - "George Agafonov", Ukraine)

One of the interesting stories associated with the acquisition of this vessel. Naturally, Ukraine could not sell the ship directly to the “aggressor country”. Therefore, the ship was sold to such a "sea" power, like Mongolia. However, a month later the ship was sold to the Russian side and transferred to the auxiliary vessels of the Black Sea Fleet. Did the Ukrainians know who they were selling this vessel to? It seems that they knew.



10. "Vologda-50" (previously - "Dadali", Turkey)



11. “Dvinitsa-50” (previously - “Alican Deval”, Turkey)

"Syrian Express" and its ships and vessels


Baltic Fleet:

12. "Alexander Shabalin"



13. Kaliningrad



14. "Korolev"



15. "Minsk"



Northern Fleet:

16. "George the Victorious"



17. "Alexander Otrakovsky"



18. "Yauza"



Civil ships:

19. Rover-ferry "Alexander Tkachenko"



Foreign ships:

It is not surprising that a Syrian vessel was seen a couple of times on the route of the Syrian Express.

20. Vessel "Souria" (Syria)



And for dessert - a real "detective". The ship "Novorossiysk" does not belong directly to Russia. Its owner is Turkey. The ship is leased to another “sea” power - the Republic of Palau, which is located somewhere between Indonesia and Australia.

However, on the ship you can see hastily shaded identification Turkish signs. Apparently, the glorious palauchans were so much in a hurry to help the just cause of combating international terrorism. For which many thanks to them!

      Indeed, no. Not to mention the Novorossiysk Shipping Company, which at one time stated that they were not interested in portraying civilian tonnage for the Black Sea Fleet, and the general became a member of the Black Sea Fleet. dir. Volga-Don Shipping Company (the very thing - next to the Vseveliky Don Voisk, in Rostov). Reliability and support of the domestic maritime shipping, 100% sovereign property - Sovcomflot JSC is a Cypriot company. Cases are old, facts from the last century. But I strongly doubt that a second Register has appeared, Russia is concerned about the revival of the merchant fleet, which fund was created in the 90s. Only there was no money in the budget for this fund. If not for the Turks, what would Russia do? They were looking for help in Germany. So the BMP suffered the sad fate of becoming a borrower for KFW - and where is it B (Baltic) M (sea) P (shipping company)? Where is the ChMP. The naval guys don't know how to feed themselves from buy and sell. And not only in Russia, all over the world it is like this: the fleet must be financed or have it under a flag of convenience. You cannot be taxed as a condom seller - he will flee to Palau or Cyprus.

    From the selection I conclude that for the express train there are not only not enough landing and transport ships of the Black Sea Fleet, but also KBF and SF. Can’t we really provide one real-life foreign airbase? And what if there is also opposition on the supply routes from air and sea? ... why do we need aircraft carriers?

      Well, how will an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean help you? Even the Americans, with their huge AUGs, are now afraid to go there - because submarines, bastions and missile boats shoot this place through and through.
      Iran generally amerly rude to Amer recently with its boats, when they laid missiles between their ships in the Persian Gulf, and most importantly in the Mediterranean, these boats and company will crush any AUG, so really - why?
      We saw a ship with containers - it would seem what did it have to do with it ...

        Not to mention that the "Syrian Express" began to run 2 years before the start of the Aerospace Forces operation ... it all started in 2012, when the Britons detained our dry cargo ship, so they decided to transport "humanitarian aid" by warships - they cannot be detained - this is is tantamount to attacking a country.

    By and large, you can see how things are in our fleet after the famous perestroika. The fleet was sawn as best they could, the auxiliary vessels went first, and the BDK almost all come from 70-80. We still do not really see how things are with the tanker fleet, supply vessels.
    I think the conflict in Syria is not so big, we do not have a land component there.

      The famous restructuring, if you have noticed, rewrote some documents in all shipping STATE enterprises. They (enterprises) have become at best with state participation, but LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY. (A joint stock company is also a limited liability company). And the statutory task they have designated the EXTRACTING PROFIT. And the sovereign's block of shares (where it is) is ruled by girls from the State Property Committee. Are they smart like that? No, they have a Moscow registration. And where all the shares were privatized, Russia has only the right to conduct a search in its Moscow office. All financial flows, especially in such an industry as shipping, flow past Russia. From sin, including. Little girls with a residence permit will come to the head. I read once that all the export of scrap metal in the Far East went through Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. I did not track how the situation developed further there. The owner and one bad traveler from Vladik to Kamchatka ... The consequences of the "famous perestroika" will be felt in many places.
