Sivkov offered a response to the actions of the US destroyer in Russian waters


Washington displayed an act of aggression by sending its destroyer John McCain on Tuesday, November 24, into Russian territorial waters - Peter the Great Bay, where the main base of the Russian Pacific Fleet, Vladivostok, is located. This was stated by military analyst, retired captain of the first rank Konstantin Sivkov in an interview with Russian TV channel "Russia 24".


According to Sivkov, battleships such as the destroyer John McCain pose a direct military threat and can raze an entire Russian city with shots from their weapons - entry of such warships into Russian waters is unacceptable.

The American warship can be armed with SM-3 missile defense missiles, which are capable of destroying Russian ballistic missiles. The John McCain may also carry Tomahawk cruise missiles equipped with nuclear warheads, with a range of up to 2,5 km.

Russia must suppress attempts to violate its territorial waters in the most severe way, up to the destruction of the violating vessel

- emphasized Konstantin Sivkov.

The military analyst recalled that American aircraft in the middle of the last century often violated the air borders of the USSR - Soviet fighters destroyed several dozen US aircraft in the 50-60s, and the United States stopped invading Union airspace. Therefore, it is necessary to resolutely suppress such actions of a potential adversary.

According to the expert, the Russian Federation, through diplomatic channels, should inform its Western "partners" that such acts are viewed by Moscow as open aggression and will be suppressed accordingly.

    Doctor professor K. Sivkov needs to treat nerves. His apocalyptic predictions make him sick.

      There is a song:

      If you get hit in the eye, you will of course scream
      hit once, hit twice, and then get used to it.


      ... So, so as not to get used to it, the answer should be clear ... K. Sivkov is right, you need to react in such a way that more such tests do not arise ... will be only flawed for them ... For example, send a squadron of ships to the PRC fleet in the South China Sea (to the Spratly Islands), etc.

        send a squadron of ships

        - no squadron, do not send a gang of RTOs to scare amers

          I will correct a little not to frighten, but to make me laugh. The Americans will fall overboard with laughter, and then they will bill us for the fact that their sailors have suffered because of us.

    The expert's opinion pleases, but it is a pity that the president, the government, the Duma and the Ministry of Defense do not share it.

    First, our political elite needs to take families out of the west and abandon real estate, only then can we hope for an adequate answer!
