The Ministry of Defense will not let foreign ships into the waters of the Northern Sea Route

The Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia Valery Gerasimov put a bullet in the speculation of a number of Western states about the need for the presence of their warships in the waters of the Northern Sea Route.

During a briefing for foreign attaches, the representative of Japan asked how Russia would react to the presence of foreign military vessels on the Northern Sea Route. Reports about it "Star".

The answer of the Russian commander was unequivocal and excluding any discrepancy:

Today, our Armed Forces are able to fully ensure the safety of navigation in the waters of the Northern Sea Route, and therefore there is no need to find warships of other countries in this sea corridor.

Valery Gerasimov said that Russia plans to improve the air defense system over the waters of the Northern Sea Route and is generally ready to fully ensure security for the ships passing there.

Thus, foreign states, including those that are leading world powers, will have to forget about the possibility of their military presence on the route of the Northern Sea Route.

The pretext in the form of "ensuring freedom of navigation", which the United States so much uses to justify the presence of its warships in any corner of the planet, will not work in this case.

      How many "calibers" can the entire Russian Navy scrape together? No more than what is on two of the four Ohio-class nuclear submarines, where each has approx. 155 pcs. In total, the US Navy has more than 9000 units on all ships. Do you feel the difference?

        Well, what and where do you "feel", I will not write to you in detail here, but usually all this is called DIFFERENTLY, but both your education and your level of development are not allowed to know all this, but nothing, you are not yelling here your favorite words, with the letter "d", and this is already progress for you ... bully
        But in fact - already many, many years ago, I’ve heard from those whom you have two hundred years of education to catch up with, both Americans and her Majesty’s subjects -

        ... but we can destroy you more than ten times, and you are only less than five of us.

        and then a very clever uncle passing by, you read about him in the newspapers, passing by said that ONE TIME is quite enough for everyone living on this globe - and you, "smart", though not ours, continue with your take measurements, how many hi

        But the United States does not have many submarines that can compete with the Russians in battle and this is definitely not Ohio ... This is the Sea Wolf, and the Yankees have only 3 ...

    There is the Law of the Sea on free navigation, and there are territorial waters where you cannot enter without permission, but otherwise, "the beautiful marquise ..." everything is open to everyone. Then it is possible to prohibit navigation for Russian warships in the Atlantic or in the Indian Ocean ...?

      Many countries establish territorial waters on their own and no one flies there (see the territorial waters of Brazil and other countries, which are much weaker than the Russian Federation).
