Greek special forces boarded a Russian ship in the Mediterranean


Special forces from the frigate F-459 Adrias of the Greek Navy landed on the Ro-Ro class cargo ship Adler, sailing under the Russian flag in the Mediterranean Sea. The military carried out an inspection of the ship, citing the conduct of the European Union operation Irini, aimed at observing the UN arms embargo on arms supplies to Libya. This was announced on the official Twitter account of the EU mission on January 11, 2021.


It should be noted that the home port of the vessel "Adler" (IMO: 9179854, MMSI: 273414440) is the port of St. Petersburg. It is specified that the frigate F-459 Adrias (in service since 1994) has already made its 63rd exit to sea as part of the above mission (27 countries are involved). At the same time, military and trade companies find mutual understanding.




Several photographs from the ship were posted on the official Twitter of Operation Irini. Based on the photo shared with the crew of the ship, we can conclude that nothing prohibited in the holds of the ship was not found and he continued on his route. According to the information of marine navigation and monitoring resources, on January 7, the vessel "Adler" was near the Egyptian port of Alexandria.

It is common knowledge that there are extensive trade relations between Russia and Egypt. Moscow sells to Cairo locomotives and wagons for railways, grain and weapons. In 2021, Russia will start building nuclear power plants in Egypt.

    Lived, shame, what that Greece impudently inspects the Russian ship, I suppose when we had a state (USSR), and not a raw material appendage of the West, even in a nightmare they could not even imagine to spook a Soviet ship. But Turkey openly drives military equipment and its military personnel there, and anyone is afraid to stop and inspect them.

      I wonder when and where a US-flagged ship was inspected, who can give information ... The Greeks gave a hint about the relation of the Russian Federation to Turkey, so the Greeks also need to give a hint in response ... So usually in international relations, there should be parity. ..

        Note: The US Merchant Marine is unable to compete in the freight market due to high levels of national operating costs and taxes. The US Navy, flying the national flag, cannot survive without government support. Therefore, more than 70% of the ships of the American fleet sail under false flags - Liberian and Panamanian.

          And one more thing: when it is VERY NECESSARY, the ship is accompanied by a ship under the St.Andrew's flag, which automatically excludes ANY misunderstandings and inclinations. Apparently, this time the escort was considered unreasonable, or, at least, unnecessary ... And there is no need to panic about this! Here the strike infrastructure of the motorized infantry brigades of the NATO Armed Forces "quietly" near our borders was deployed on a permanent basis, under the guise of annual exercises, and you burst into tears about the apparently empty ship!

            I would like to ask. And what legal or moral right did the Greeks have to impudently disembark on a Russian ship and search it ??? This is how I equate such actions with pirates. Why are they better than the Somali pirates? Those, too, do not ask anyone to land on the ship they like. And they landed on the Russian one, knowing that nothing would happen, even concern because our government deeply does not care about the honor of the country, and once they earn money, especially Cyprus is the main offshore. Everyone knows that the Turks carry weapons there in caravans, but the Greeks do not even dream of inspecting them, for it will become more expensive for themselves that Erdogan will take in response nobody knows and it is better not to know.

            And why did you make such empty conclusions? What makes you think that I burst into tears? How can you categorically assert that which is not?

      The Albanians put shit on the door handles when they escorted the Soviet naval base and did not allow the submarine to be picked up with malfunctions.

        Only they were no longer escorting the Soviet naval base. This is when the USSR collapsed, they lost fear and rushed to NATO.

          But no. This happened under Khrushchev, who ruined the authority of both the CPSU and the USSR. In 1961.

        This, apparently, to spoil the NATO members! A kind of "sabotage in trifles." So as not to relax.

      Lived, it's a shame that Greece impudently inspects a Russian ship,

      Judging by the photo, the Greek aggressors brazenly landed for a selfie with Russian sailors.
      Against the background of three flags.
      Perhaps they even used the ship's latrine.

    A Greek warship searched and searched a Russian-flagged ship sailing to Egypt. Well, okay ...

    Why is everyone so excited? And if it was the waters of Greece, then they had every right. I think it was, because no one was outraged

      On January 7, the ship "Adler" was near the Egyptian port of Alexandria.

    Well, we looked. And in what proper place to be horrified? They catch contraband, our border guards do the same on a regular basis. And here they were rather not even looking for contraband, just an excuse for inspection, but slave traders. In the east, white girls, like boys, are highly prized.
