Sergei Shoigu: The possibilities of the prospective basing of the forces of the Pacific Fleet in the Kuril Islands are being studied

163
Today, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that the main defense department of Russia is considering the possibility of basing ships of the Navy fleet (Pacific Fleet) in the Kuril Islands.


From the statement of Sergei Shoigu:
In April, the sailors of the Pacific Fleet will embark on a three-month expedition trip to the islands of the Great Kuril Ridge. The main goal is to study the possibilities of the perspective basing of the forces of the Pacific Fleet.


At the same time, the minister added:
Already this year, the coastal missile systems "Ball" and "Bastion", unmanned aerial vehicles will be placed here.


Sergei Shoigu: The possibilities of the prospective basing of the forces of the Pacific Fleet in the Kuril Islands are being studied


In Japan, such a statement was answered with lightning-like “concerns”. The question of the possibility of placing ships of the Pacific Fleet in the Kuril Islands to journalists from RIA News commented on the Chairman of the Committee of the Council of the Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on Defense and Security Viktor Ozerov.

According to Viktor Ozerov, the number of ships that Russia can deploy on the Kuril Islands depends on the quality of relations with the Japanese and other neighbors.

RIA News cites a statement by the representative of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation:

The more constructive the relations of Russia with Japan and other states of the Asia-Pacific region, the better it will affect the quantity and quality of warships of the Pacific Navy, which can be deployed on the Kuril Islands. When we talk about basing, we do not mean that the entire Pacific Navy of the Russian Federation will be transferred there.


According to Senator Ozerov, the deployment of certain ships of the Pacific Fleet in the Kuril Islands will help Russia more effectively solve security-related tasks.

          Obviously, the equipment of the Kuril outpost begins. Obstacle in the Japanese-American direction. The jackals have several bases there, including Yokosuka laughing, where the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis and its accompanying ships recently supplemented the permanently deployed US Navy grouping in the waters of the Far East, led by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan.

          And thereby, apparently emphasized - the Kuril Islands! And then they were already sickened with whining, indignation, fears. Just a little who will come to the Kuril Islands from our dignitaries, so you begin to gobble!

              This is true. As long as the government’s policy doesn’t seem to be bothered by this issue. I have a Russian friend from Moldova who has been unable to obtain Russian citizenship for 10 years. And outside Russia, about 30 to 40 million Russians live. ) really want to live, work and raise children in their historical Motherland. But they don’t really care about the demographic issue, neither the government nor the Duma. Just talk, and PR around.

                On Simushir, already under the USSR, they began to build a naval base in a very convenient bay, then they abandoned it at the Ural Nugget, like many other things. The time has come to bring what we have begun to mind. As for our publicized government and the Duma, together with the guarantor, words are not enough from what they are doing. For visibility, one thing, but basically the opposite.

                Unfortunately you are right! Nothing to add. And it’s also interesting why this number of ships placed at our base suddenly depends on the mood of the Japanese? They don’t feel shy at all, they want to bring the aircraft carrier closer to us, they want two, they will borrow from NATO and three will be delivered. But we have a clean field there and no one, well, the acre of machine gunners with grenade launchers is even liquid. The riddle is a pancake. Everything is modest. Maybe it's time for the oligarchs to dekulakize and poke their nose, what came from them? And this is even more difficult than negotiating with the Japanese! hi

                Something is wrong here ... When my wife and I decided to use the compatriot resettlement program, we prepared the documents longer than received an answer. The whole procedure took about three months ... Your friend "wants something wrong", apparently it is similar to the desire to simultaneously eat fish and other actions related more to demographics than food.

          The plans for the Kuril Islands are absolutely correct. The fleet and infrastructure there are simply necessary.
          I did not like only Ozerov’s dictum about quantity and quality, depending on constructive relations with Japan. It is necessary to stir what Russia needs in the worst political situation. How many ships and which ones is not a matter of the Japanese mind.

            There are other opinions: some analysts believe that the withdrawal of the main forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces from Syria was carried out under pressure from China, which is growing tensions with the United States, which could turn into an open clash in the Pacific Ocean, and China needs Russia to strengthen its positions there. Since the ally cannot simultaneously conduct military operations on 2 fronts, China allegedly insisted on curtailing the main operations of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria. This is backed up by the promise of large volumes of investment. Russia could not agree more - apart from China, we have practically no allies. Now Shoigu is taking the first real steps to strengthen Russia's position in the Pacific theater - a large amount of military equipment is being deployed: here are drones, ships, and coastal missile systems. A strange "coincidence", isn't it?

              Perhaps not a coincidence. But ... Japan has the "freshest" and second-strongest fleet in this direction. Japan's oldest warship, built in 91.
              Therefore, the bases in the Kuril Islands are certainly good, only updating and introducing new ships into the Pacific Fleet should be done more efficiently. And here, by the way, the question raised in one article today about the submarines of projects 885 and 955 becomes very relevant. .

                But there is a HUGE difference between them and Russia with China. If China and Russia are in fact opponents of the West and the USA, then India and Brazil so far are its allies.

                And the task of Russia and China is to drag India and Brazil. But for now they are in the western camp

              The Kuril Islands long ago had to be consolidated by its presence, and not only by the presence of the army and navy. That now finally they started to do it - plus. That we may not know all the details of this process is another plus, we know less - those who do not need to know this will learn less. It’s another matter how all this is created, with what aim and presence what only military or military and economic.

              In general, it’s very realistic, unfortunately there is no USSR — and soon the place of the main enemy of the United States and the West will be completely occupied by China. not Russia. simply by virtue of China’s tenfold power — comparable to the west. And the role of Russia unfortunately remains only in ensuring the safe rear of China - supply - and other assistance. Who is senior and who is younger will unfortunately be clear.

              But in Syria I do not agree. China will never surrender the Iranian-Syrian direction for the Pacific - it is not afraid of either the United States or Japan and is steadily increasing its power in the Pacific. And he sure is enough of that. what Russia has so far there - after all, atomarines are a factor. and the Kuril Islands did not give up - and China there hastily opened a joint venture with Russia for the production of sea cucumbers (it’s evident that he has nowhere to grow them more smile )

              And Iran is just as important to him as Syria - and this task is assigned to Russia. Russia didn’t bring out everything - but part of the aviation - and perhaps because of the storm season. or maybe because of the truce so that there is no downtime - or maybe it’s bargaining with Iran — it crushes or blackmail me — like I’ll leave now and give up everything, it’s not known exactly

              China is no ally to us. In the economy, it’s a competitor (they overwhelmed the entire market with its cheap consumer goods, it does not allow its light, textile, electronic industry to develop), militarily as well (hundreds of thousands of Chinese soldiers and thousands of tanks are on the borders with Russia). And the promised loans at a reasonable percentage should not be given in a hurry. What nafig ally?

        The more constructive the relations of Russia with Japan and other states of the Asia-Pacific region, the better it will affect the quantity and quality of warships of the Pacific Navy, which can be deployed on the Kuril Islands. When we talk about basing, we do not mean that the entire Pacific Navy of the Russian Federation will be transferred there.


        Do not add, do not diminish - everything is extremely clear and clear.

          Legislation needs to be changed and clarified regarding the fight against poaching. One could introduce the following interpretation: Consider as a means of illegal fishing for seafood, tackle, processing equipment, vessels and other auxiliary mechanisms. All illicit means are to be disposed of by recycling (vessels are processed for scrap, equipment for fiber, etc.). When a couple of seiners are cut into scrap at the team, the owners will begin to wonder if it is worth breaking the law. What is more expensive seiner or one-time catch?

        No, guys, take it cooler. There is one gorgeous place on the island of Simushir, the bay or Broughton Bay. In principle, before the year 94, it was either a secret or half-soviet Soviet base of the KTOF, in general, the people knew, but did not advertise. If you attach the pens, the logistics, however, will turn out gold, then there you can make a strategic base like Vilyuchensk. The only and superbly protected place in the Far East with access directly to the Pacific Ocean (without any seas and straits) - and this is a bullet in the ass for the entire APR, especially the States, from Seattle to Pearl Harbor.

          Regarding the bases on the Kuril Islands, this is really a wise decision, because the Sea of ​​Japan, sorry for the comparison, a puddle, without access to the oceans: the Tatar Strait is shallow, Laperuza in case of war will be blocked by both our side and the Japanese, Sangarsky, Tsushima, it’s clear that will be blocked. But Kamchatka and the Kuril Islands are both an exit for submarines and NKs to the World Ocean, and control over almost the entire North Pacific. I won’t lie at the expense of Broughton, when Ivas was caught in that area, there were no movements (87g), maybe there was a submarine base, but the maps on the maps were shallow, which was about 1.5 meters, although at the entrance the depths immediately broke off at 700m - it was used to be a volcano.

    There are no convenient bays in the Kuril Islands to accommodate a large fleet. Type PSKR-please. But at the Bastions to arrange Balls, the Japanese are very out of place!

            You can not compare the climate in Hawaii and the Kuril Islands. One ice setting is worth it. Back in May, Laperuza Ave. was filled with ice; the passenger does not always reach the South Kuril Islands. As well as constant fogs and rains, snowstorms in winter, planes do not fly for two weeks. There is a difference ?

      Well, first of all, yours is not true. There is enough space for basing the "mosquito fleet", with its current capabilities in the Kuril Islands, only on Shikotan Island there are three large bays, there are also on other islands. I had to be, I know. Small ships are more useful here, they able to cover the coastal component, and the presence of a strong coastal component of the Navy will discourage any foe from inviting us to "visit" us.

    As for the convenient bays on the islands - I have not heard. And to keep the ships closer to the nonfreezing straits, covering for Pacific Fleet access to the Pacific Ocean - this is straightforward. The airfield at Iturup is already operating. There are convenient bays on Shikotan. Probably there is on Iturup. Good start.

      Ask on the net how much it costs a month of dredging. Multiply by at least 4, because it’s not possible to do one thing, and then multiply it by at least 8-10 (for supply and maintenance, shift work, etc.) and ISO certification, then you can multiply by another 20-30-50 laughing And you will have the cost of a month of work, and how much is transported, the quality (amount of money) depends on the area.

    I honestly do not understand what a peace treaty is? Japan capitulated? Surrendered. What other peace treaty? History cannot be reversed. The Japanese had a chance to master not only the Kuril Islands, but also the Far East. But, before the arrival of the Russians. The Russians came, the train left. The Kuril Islands is now a strategic point militarily. And not only in relation to Japan. The Kuril Islands are the richest regions. Any compromise on Kuril membership is treason.

    There are no large bays on the Kuril Islands, and tsunamis are not uncommon in those places. The RF Pacific Fleet is currently going through hard times, many old ships have been decommissioned, and new ones have not yet been built. The military garrisons located on the islands themselves can be strengthened, but ships should not be placed too close to Japan, and one should not forget how the military airfields and warehouses located too close to the border were destroyed with lightning speed or captured in 1941. If I were to solve this issue, I would strengthen the air defense of the islands and deploy coastal missile and artillery mounts on them, with anti-ship missiles, anti-aircraft missile systems, anti-aircraft missile systems and tactical missiles, and I entrusted this entire economy from enemy assault forces with well-trained marine corps consisting of contractors -profi. On some islands there are airdromes that require modernization, which is necessary for the safety of military transport aviation flights. This is what needs to be done, and I would not have to transfer warships to the Kuril Islands, except perhaps small missile boats, and even that after the replenishment and rearmament of the Pacific Fleet.

    In the 90s, the number of military units in the Kuril Islands was significantly reduced. At present, the increase in the number of our troops in the Kuril Islands is simply necessary. This is due to the buildup of NATO military capabilities in the east and, in particular, in Japan.
    Last year, the Burevestnik airfield was restored on Iturup Island, which is capable of receiving heavy aircraft. Other military facilities are being restored. The infrastructure of military camps is being restored, material support is being established. In general, work is underway and this is important for our defense capability. Formations of the Navy on the Kuril Islands are also necessary, and they need to be created as quickly as possible, because our "partners" are active in this region and in this direction.
