Latvian military claim that they have spotted a Russian submarine near its borders


"In the Latvian exclusive economic zone in 21, the sea mile from the NAF territorial waters today identified a Russian Kilo-class submarine," the statement said.

The military added that on Sunday two surface ships were also seen near the Latvian borders.

“April 17 in the Latvian exclusive economic zone in the 23 nautical miles from the NAF territorial waters identified the ship Steregushchy, in the nautical miles 25 a ship of support of Kashtan-class submarines of the Russian Navy,” the message said.

In addition, according to the release, the submarines of the Kilo and Steregushus class also lit up on Saturday, approaching the territorial waters of Latvia at a distance of 12 miles.

The Defense Ministry noted that “Russian military aircraft and ships were approaching the borders of Latvia in 2015 more than 270 times, and in 2014 more than 250 times”.

Earlier, the Russian ambassador in Riga, Alexander Vishnyakov, repeatedly stated that "all flights of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the movement of ships are carried out in strict accordance with international legal norms."

        Have your Scandinavian friends learned to detect submarines? Or did a group from the Latvian Ministry of Defense leave for barbecue on the weekend? Then they could see anything. Green men, for example. Very polite with miserable balts.

          Russia, as the successor to the USSR, agrees to compensate for the damage to Latvia for the entire Soviet period. For this, Latvia must provide a breakdown of all damage by years of occupation. Payment will be made for each year in Soviet rubles of a given year at the euro exchange rate for a given year. smile

And just in case, Estonia and Lithuania, at the same time. Or is everything built in these places built by the hands and heads of local residents?

    For example, we saw 124 domes like parachutes after the Il-76 flight over the territory of Latvia. Following the trail from the landing site, a kilometer from this place was found bitten teeth deer (this is for squeezing tears from green). At least so.

    In the Latvian exclusive economic zone, 21 nautical miles from the territorial waters of the NAF, a Russian submarine of the "Kilo" class was identified today


    Are they afraid that the trawl boat passed through the "exclusive economic zone"? Sprat missing? Or the sprats were "aggressively" scared away and those, with fright, lost several "kilos" in weight. laughing
    Adult uncles from the Baltic States with their "calculations" somehow look pitiful
    The Defense Ministry noted that “Russian military aircraft and ships were approaching the borders of Latvia in 2015 more than 270 times, and in 2014 more than 250 times”.

    The sea is narrow! Inevitably, the "tigers", the Swedes, the Finns will see it.

    “April 17 in the Latvian exclusive economic zone in the 23 nautical miles from the NAF territorial waters identified the ship Steregushchy, in the nautical miles 25 a ship of support of Kashtan-class submarines of the Russian Navy,” the message said.
    Well, not in the territorial waters of Latvia! If we announce every time that we saw NATO ships, then there will be no Internet! Apparently, before this, they had never seen the ships of the Russian Navy so close - they are glad to tell everyone what they have become vigilant under the tutelage of the NATO generals! laughing

    I seem to understand. Their toad presses that there was no one to send for accurate identification and prosecution. They handed over albatrosses for scrapping (DB). Or did they have Lithuania? And the fact that they now have it will not see Varshavyanka even if it starts blowing in half a mile.

    How did they find it ?, well, I don’t know what they find there, but from time to time during exercises they often find sunken anchor mines of the Second World War, followed by destruction, naturally, and I remember how many years ago even a torpedo of the First World War was found ... Why am I that's it ... don't you think that what elements turn this site into a kind of "Censor" ..., why is all this negative ?, this anger?, are you really GOOD that YOU are like THEM?

    “In the Latvian exclusive economic zone 21 nautical miles from the territorial waters of the NAF today identified a Russian Kilo-class submarine“- said in a statement.

    It’s good that the Latvian control track in the Baltic Sea has not been crossed, otherwise it would have burned. laughing

      This is to unwind and amuse the local audience. To be honest, the Balts have always had a very high opinion of their loved ones. Now it has climbed out internationally and looks very funny.

    Latvian military claims
    Unfortunately, the fate of such "states" as Latvia was stupidly escalating the situation. A kind of CNN (or whatever), the size of a small country, in which the people, as always, remain hostage.

    I, as a resident and citizen of Latvia, declare with all responsibility that Latvia itself, not the first decade, has been continuously spinning at the Russian border! Although some believe that Russia is constantly spinning around the borders of Latvia itself. lol

    I can’t laugh without Latvia. It is necessary to scatter about five old reconscopes to a piece of polystyrene attached to their base, along the border in the neutral --- the reaction will be fun --- and we will go to failure !!!
