TJF: Academician Chersky’s maneuvers are a trick


Information on the gradual advancement of the Akademik Chersky pipe-laying vessel, proceeding from the Nakhodka port to the Baltic Sea, regularly appears in the domestic media. Such increased attention to his route is due to the fact that this vessel is the only one in the Russian fleet capable of completing the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.


It is noteworthy that analysts from the not very friendly organization towards Russia called The Jamestown Foundation (TJF) saw a deceptive trick in the unusual maneuvers of Academician Chersky.

The fact is that this ship is the only one with a class three dynamic positioning system (DP3), which meets the requirements of Denmark for working in its territorial waters. True, he will still need additional retrofitting in St. Petersburg or Kaliningrad to complete the underwater part of the Nord Stream-2.

American analysts believe that the wide coverage of the Academician Chersky route in the media can serve as an informational "smoke screen" designed to divert all the attention of the West. In their opinion, the most preferred option for Gazprom may be the use of several vessels at once, such as the Fortuna barge. Yes, it does not have the required dynamic positioning system, but can be fixed at anchors. Another option for using a small barge would be its “binding” to the vessel with DP3.

Analysts at The Jamestown Foundation with undisguised gloating note that in any case, Gazprom and any of its possible foreign contractors will have to deal with the problem of possible sanctions by the State Department and the US Treasury.

      mor7d (mor7d), all do not care for your copy-paste from the article. And even more so - to the flow of what you, by your naivety, call your conclusions.

      This will not help the Americans. This war will also lose (as with oil). Coronavirus to help them!)

      Weak opponents for Gazprom.

        This must certainly be done. Otherwise, the risk of losing gas transportation capabilities is very high. Ukraine is not particularly invested in the maintenance of the transit pipe, and the Maidan horses have repeatedly threatened to blow up the pipe. With them it will become.

    Anglo-Saxons in the world at all times loved to act like pirates. It is enough to recall the "glorious" British corsairs, and how Roosevelt forced Churchill to give in to the desire of the United States to freely trade in the British community in exchange for help in the war with Germany. No wonder they say that you can’t erase genes with your finger.

    The Nord Stream will be completed in any way. Dutch fields with "V" gas have been depleted. Now the Germans rely only on deliveries through the joint venture. Prior to this, in 2019, they reconfigured their systems to use “H” gas. That is, this issue has long been resolved. Yes, the Americans are trying to spoil their sanctions, but as they say: the dog barks, the caravan goes on. The only question is time.

    And who cares about the route of the Russian ship? Is there too much attention? It is said that the SP-2 will be built and put into operation this year, so it will be. SP-2, by the way, was not needed at all due to the warm winter, but by the fall-winter of 2020, it would certainly be needed.

      That's for sure! And now the psheks have fanned out.

      Next spring, the contract for the transit of Russian gas through the Polish section of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline ends, and Warsaw intends to review its terms. The Polish side wants to earn at least 10 times more from gas supplies from Russia to Germany, EADaily calculated.

    As they say, is it not time for the Russian Federation to impose sanctions on the pirate activity of the FSA and act against them, as they did against fascist Germany? They dream of a World without Russia, so let them understand that without Russia and their rotten world there will be no! After all, everyone knows that God suffers for a very long time, but very painfully punishes (like Sodom and Gomorrah)!
