Russian pipe-laying vessel Akademik Cherskiy changes course again


The Russian pipe-laying vessel Akademik Cherskiy, with the help of which it is hoped to complete the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, avoiding unnecessary stops, is heading towards the Baltic.


The vessel non-stop proceeded past the ports of Sri Lanka and, according to the Vesselfinder ship monitoring service, without slowing down, it should go to the Egyptian port of Suez.

Recall that the "Academician Chersky" began his journey from Nakhodka in early February and, having passed Singapore ports in the last decade, headed towards Sri Lanka.

Arrival of the Russian pipe layer in Suez is tentatively expected on March 25.

Such a schedule of Academician Chersky’s movement is fully justified: Ukraine and the USA do not hide their intentions to “bury” Nord Stream-2.

According to the head of the Ukrainian company Naftogaz Andrey Kobolev, "the game is not over yet."

According to him, the Ukrainian side is now discussing with the Americans how to stop the construction of a gas pipeline from Russia to Europe.

We are currently discussing, including here in the District of Columbia, how to ensure that this project is dead.

- quotes his words TASS.

The head of the Ukrainian company believes that the most effective way to do this is through US sanctions.

    The vessel needs protection, or rather, a strong multifunctional support ...
    You never know ...

      At least in a military escort - for sure! And then some "common people" or their sixes, under a far-fetched pretext, WILL HAVE to urgently detain the ship to be found in the hold of "prohibited contraband" - any meanness can be expected from them ... after all, these are the same pirates and they are descendants of pirates!

      You never know ...

      In the form of a pair of Shchuk, with instructions to sink with torpedoes everything that seems suspicious to the SSGN commanders, including the American AUG in the Mediterranean and "Caliber" / "Grenade" in the straits of Turkey ...

      The title is incomprehensible: changed course. You might think that it winds there in the ocean. However, if it goes to the Suez Canal, then there is only one route, and it just follows it. And destinations such as Singapore or Colombo got into the media only from the data of AIS equipment, which are set by shipboard personnel and are accessible via the Internet to everyone. Now I’ll climb the bridge, conjure with an indicator, and everyone interested will see that we are going to the north pole. If the crew wanted to disguise themselves in this way, then this is pointless, since besides AIS, which operates within 50-70 miles, there is also LRIT, which is generally almost global. Access to it, however, is not as simple as access to AIS, but is also available to anyone who agrees to pay several hundred euros.

      Well, as for attempts to interfere, the easiest way to declare it auxiliary is a ship of the Navy, raise a naval flag and put a company of marine corps there just in case.

    On the Northern Sea Route would it not be faster and safer? We have enough icebreakers.

    According to the head of the Ukrainian company Naftogaz Andrey Kobolev, “the game is not over yet” - these nits sticking to the pipe must be pressed, not played with them!

    Ukraine and Ukrainians will play out, Rostov is not rubbery, all patience comes to an end, and Mazepovtsev does not want to forgive Mazepovtsev for the genocide of the Russian people arranged by them!

    Provokes penguins to body movements in the direction of ports and states, by which the ship passes.

    Strong? What is it? From terrorists-pirates enough small rocket, with the escort of transport with feeding the course, the team. And there are enough of our "Voyevods" in the mines from the large ones. Let them just try.

    Drinking and smoking weed is not necessary. The head will not spin. And you yourself will not be a Brownian in motion.

    Presumably, went towards the group of ships of the Baltic Fleet in the Indian Ocean. And behind the Pacific Fleet’s dashboard it covers.

    Probably, this pipe-layer goes anti-submarine zigzags. Sumerians like submarines have. They can (if they swim) take in the Mediterranean position for torpedo firing. Oh, these unshaven boys Dennitsa, sorry, Zelensky. But if they get and shoot, they may fall into the wrong target.
