The Department of Defense records an increased activity of the US Navy off the coast of Chukotka

Strengthening the operational activities of the US naval forces in the Chukotka region is the basis for alarm of the Joint Command of the Armed Forces in the north-east of Russia.

On the air of the program "Military Acceptance" on the TV channel "Star" OKVS chief of staff Mikhail Bilichenko said that in this area the United States is increasing the composition of its groupings and conducting various exercises, including landing.

According to him, the Americans have always been active in the Chukchi operational area. However, the difference in the current situation is that in addition to the daily operational combat training, the Pentagon is increasing the number of personnel and combat equipment and fulfills the amphibious landing.

The Russian command connects the increased activity of the US Armed Forces in this region with the increased interest in the Arctic that Russia is successfully developing, creating military bases there and paving the Northern Sea Route.

Recall that the OKVS is the largest association of troops and forces in Russia, which ensures the security of the largest territory in the east of our country.

The United Command also includes the fleet, aviation and land units.

    land units.

    The author could tell in more detail about them, we can say they are not there ... from a word in general ....

    On Kamchatka and Chukotka are the units of the joint command of the troops and forces in the north-east of Russia (OKVS). The grouping includes brigades: 114 of surface ships, 40 of the marines, 520 of the coastal missile, and 53 of the air defense division, 7060 of the air base, combat and rear support units. In addition, submarine forces of the Pacific Fleet are stationed in Kamchatka as part of the 10 and 25 divisions of submarines. They are armed with the 15 nuclear submarine (six with ballistic and five with cruise missiles), two small anti-submarine ships, four MRK, three minesweepers.

    Some "smart guy" guessed, not in addition, but instead of the MRBR deployed in Kamchatka, to form a BR.MP ... so there are no RF Army units there ...

    It is time for Kremlin residents to take up their minds, stop feeding foreign countries at the expense of the Russian Federation and to the detriment of the Russian Federation, such as Kyrgyzstan, which Putin, to the detriment of the interests of the Russian Federation, donated $ 250 million, and invest in the Russian Federation, its indigenous population and the army ... For $ 250 million donated to Kyrgyzstan, from which Russia saw nothing but the St. Petersburg metro blown up by the Kyrgyz bandit, the Russian Federation could replenish its fleet with a new corvette of type 20380 ...
