Shows the current alignment of forces in the eastern Mediterranean

On Thursday, February 3, amphibious assault ships from the Northern and Baltic Fleets arrived at the Russian logistics center Tartus in Syria. At the moment, six Russian large landing ships - "Pyotr Morgunov", "George the Victorious", "Olenegorsky Miner", "Korolev", "Minsk" and "Kaliningrad" - are located south of Cyprus and follow the course to the Dardanelles.

In total, there are about ten Russian ships in the Eastern Mediterranean, along with technical support vessels. To the south, not far from the coast of Egypt, are the Varyag missile cruiser, the Admiral Tributs BOD and the Boris Butoma integrated supply tanker. All of them are assigned to the Pacific Fleet.

This group of ships remains in the Mediterranean.

The maneuvers of the Russian combat fleet did not go unnoticed by NATO. Thus, the American destroyer USS Bainbridge, located near the island of Crete, began moving in a northerly direction, clearly intending to follow the transition of the Russian squadron from Tartus to the Black Sea. The German frigate Lübeck (F214) and the US Navy expeditionary fast vessel USNS Trenton (T-EPF-5) are in the same area.

    Syria will be cleaned from bearded Americans? To be honest, nothing is clear at all.

    The exercises of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (Navy, Aerospace Forces ...) will take place or are going on in many places now. The entire Olympics (until the end of March for sure). Until that time, apparently we are waiting for a final answer to the ultimatum. And then we'll see...

    ... the current alignment of forces ...

    There are not enough colors in the picture. Turks and Greeks are probably not in NATO, or do they not have boats with airplanes? Italians and Bulgarians are probably all busy guarding the dachas of especially respected Russians, and further down the list.
