The current position of the strike group of the Northern Fleet, which will conduct firing near the UK, has been determined

Recently, the Irish media scored anxietythat the Russian aviation and navy are preparing to carry out missile launches and bombing in the Irish Sea of ​​the Atlantic Ocean too close to the coast of Great Britain and Ireland. Now the navigation resources have managed to determine the current position of a probable strike group of surface ships and vessels of the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy, which will conduct the above-mentioned training firing.

The Irish were alarmed that the maneuvers of the Russians, connected with the blocking of the shipping area and airspace, should take place 240 km south-west of the coast of County Cork in early February. This area is included in the exclusive economic zone of Ireland and is patrolled by its ships and aircraft. However, the non-NATO Irish have very few opportunities to monitor the actions of the Russians.

It turned out that the indicated group of the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy includes: the Marshal Ustinov missile cruiser of the far sea and ocean zone (Project 1164 Atlant), the Admiral of the Kasatonov multi-purpose frigate with URO of the far sea and ocean zone (Project 22350), a large anti-submarine ship (BPK) "Vice-Admiral Kulakov" of the far sea and ocean zone (project 1155) and the medium sea tanker "Vyazma" (project REF-675) for supplying ships and vessels in the far sea zone.

This group left Severomorsk on January 22 and headed for the Norwegian Sea. The group is currently escorted by Andenes (W 322), an ice-class patrol ship of the Nordkapp type of the Norwegian Coast Guard.

Ранее supposed tothat the group of the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy will be in this composition and it will go to the Mediterranean Sea to meet with a similar formation of the Pacific Fleet. At the same time, there was no mention of shooting near the British Isles.

We remind you that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ireland considers these shootings to be undesirable. Dublin admitted that he could not interfere with the exercises, but asked Moscow to abandon the planned event. In turn, the Russian ambassador in Dublin, Yuri Filatov, urged the Irish not to worry about the maneuvers, which pose absolutely no threat to Ireland.

In addition, the RF Ministry of Defense clarified that the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, would be in command of the maneuvers. The department added that on January 24, two ships from among those that will take part in the exercises in the Atlantic left the base in Baltiysk - corvettes with URO "Stable" and "Savvy" (project 20380). On board are also anti-terror groups from the Marine Corps of the Baltic Fleet. At the same time, nothing was said about the use of aviation in these maneuvers, including strategic ones.

    Shooting is demonstrative. Make-believe. Not on a permanent basis. Given the state of the coastal and marine infrastructure of the KSF, even such a demonstration event was not easy for the Commander of the KSF. The tanker "Vyazma" is just an average tanker, it is almost 40 years old. It is not a universal supply transport, which the Severomorsk people have been dreaming of for 20 years.

      In the Mediterranean naval theater, the Russian Navy does not have the minimum required maritime and coastal infrastructure. So in November 2012, the crew of the TFR "Sharp-witted" from the KChF was forced to make an unscheduled working call at the Italian naval base of Taranto. To repair those who left building oil pumps. The crew of the "PM -9" (floating workshops) was unable to provide the BCH-5 TFR "Sharp-witted" with the necessary assistance. At present, given the nature of relations with NATO, such technical assistance is extremely unlikely. In Tartus there is no possibility even use the emergency dock. For lack of any dock. There is no hospital ship. The Yenisei GS has not been able to leave the berth for more than 25 years. The crews of the Russian Mediterranean group are not able to go ashore on leave. the former SAR does not contribute to the well-deserved relaxation of seafarers.
      You can think of a lot. Opportunities to translate into reality is becoming less and less.

      The commander of the KSF allocated everything he could for these demonstration firings. Without the possibility, if necessary, of building up a squad of forces. And NATO begins its exercises just in the North. So the North Sea people cannot move away from their base.

        The crews of the Russian Mediterranean grouping do not have the opportunity to go on shore leave, like their colleagues from NATO, since the situation in the former SAR does not contribute to the well-deserved relaxation of the sailors.

        - this is apparently the main problem, you are our wide-profile specialist. laughing In the Soviet Navy, in foreign countries, in addition to the highest ranks, no one was allowed anywhere at all, but this did not interfere with combat effectiveness. As well as the lack of assistance from NATO.
        Yes ... you don’t go too far with abbreviations and abbreviations, it’s all the same and it’s so clear that you are not a naval person from the word at all. Looks funny and stupid. No.

          In Soviet times, sailors from the 5th OPESK in the Mediterranean went on layoffs in Tartus, Tivat, Dubrovnik, Split, Bizerte, Tangier. There are many photos on the net. And
          memories of those who served in military service. Sailors of the KSF during calls to Havana and Cienfuegos visited beaches and museums.

              There was even a Directive of the USSR Ministry of Defense regulating the procedure for going ashore, for the dismissal of the crews of the USSR Navy. We went in fives with conscripts, in fome. three. Literature was issued in the form of brochures for distribution among the local population. In Arabic, French, Spanish. the composition was enough for souvenirs, light industry items. Officers and midshipmen had enough for radio and video equipment, for high-quality shoes. The use of alcohol during dismissal was prohibited.

                Four conscripts, led by a senior officer.

                - you mean, a senior officer, accompanied by four "escorts"? laughing In order not to mischief and not enter into unnecessary contacts ...
                Listen, miner-artilleryman, I don’t really understand why you, with such an anti-Russian orientation, chose such a “cotton” for yourself - now, apparently, there are such people only in the Donbass, and not on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. laughing
                But it’s better not to write anything about the USSR, you, apparently, were born after its sudden collapse, and you don’t know a damn thing about it ...

                  Senior officers, as a rule, went to the meeting in the cars of the consuls, embassies. They went on foot extremely rarely. Read the memoirs of the admirals of those years about the 5th operational squadron, about visiting Cuba. When the crews of the KSF and KChF submarines were under repair in the ports of Tivat, Dubrovnik former Yugoslavia, they lived in hotels. Funds were allocated for them to purchase tickets to the cinema, to other entertainment events. The same applied to the crews in Gdansk, in Poland. They built RZK and PM for the fleet. board. Not having the opportunity to go ashore. Yes, and with the currency for the crews is tight.

                    I don't need to read anything about this, unlike you. I am telling you all this from personal experience.
                    And about what was built where and how: for the Soviet Navy they built in Poland, and in Finland, and in Yugoslavia, in many places, even in Japan something. And for one Navy shipbuilder with a rank of cap-3 and above, there were at least two KGB officers on business trips ... Maybe more, if the rest are secret. Two usually just grazed in the open, sometimes changing each other, sometimes right in pairs. Even in socialist countries
