Russian Navy accompanies the Akademik Chersky pipe-laying machine to the Baltic


The Akademik Chersky crane-assembly pipe-laying vessel (KMTUS), owned by Gazprom Fleet LLC (100% subsidiary of Gazprom PJSC), continues to move in the waters of the World Ocean, gradually approaching the Baltic Sea. The path of the vessel capable of completing the Nord Stream 2 is tracked by the Vesselfinder navigation portal.


It should be noted that according to the specified portal, "Academician Chersky" out from Nakhodka on February 9, 2020. Then, at the end of February 2020, the ship passed Singapore and headed towards Colombo (Sri Lanka). March 3, 2020 KMTUS approached Sri Lanka and "disappeared from the radar."

And it turned out that the Russian ship did not go anywhere. It simply turned off the data transfer - automatic identification system (AIS). After that, the "Academician Chersky" waited several days for the approach of warships of the Russian Navy.

On March 6, 2020, the pipelayer, accompanied by the Baltic Fleet Yaroslav the Wise, a patrol ship (TFR) (arrived in Colombo on March 4, 2020), headed towards the Gulf of Aden, where they are already waiting for the support vessel (Yelnya tanker and tugboat "Victor Konetsky"). At the same time, a large anti-submarine ship (BOD) of the Pacific Fleet “Admiral Vinogradov”, which followed the pipe-layer from the Far East, entered Colombo. Thus, the Russian Navy, "passing the baton", guides the convoy through the troubled waters of the oceans.

Necessary addthat at present in the area of ​​Gulf of Hormuz, the US Navy AUG is in charge, led by the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS (CVN 75) Harry S. Truman ("Harry Truman"). At the same time, another AUG of the US Navy, led by the Eisenhower aircraft carrier, is moving from the Mediterranean Sea. So, there was a high probability that in the Gulf of Aden a lone “Academician Chersky” could be attacked by “some pirates”.

Now, to "Academician Chersky" no pirates are scared, even if it will be two AUG US Navy. Therefore, there is a high probability that the vessel will safely reach the Baltic Sea and eventually complete the Nord Stream-2.

    Yes, almost the entire fleet involved. Only, it seems, especially with the latest events, that everything goes to the fact that the hydrocarbon trade has a very vague future.

    And they said that the AUG is moving towards Syria. But it turns out, on the contrary, they are withdrawn from the sea ...

    Yeah, and everyone wants to attack the pipelayer ... With the forces of 2 AUG ... Nothing, "National Interest" will quickly drown them in articles ...

      They want or don’t want to, but when they see an escort, they’ll definitely want to!

    In such cases, a pair of atomic submarines must work, let's see at what distance the Amer. AUG from Chersky will be held.

      ... a pair of atomic submarines is sure to work ..

      Well, if only by tugboats. You really don't have to panic. And then you look - and all the near and far radars, satellites and airplanes, ships, steam locomotives and Strategic Missile Forces, everyone is watching the Academician - now he is ours (Gazprom) everything!
      There are no other problems in this world.
