Media: Russian squadron leaves the Mediterranean Sea


After confrontation with the NATO fleet off the coast of Italy, Russia began the planned withdrawal of part of its ships and vessels of the Northern Fleet, additionally deployed since the beginning of February, from the Mediterranean Sea. The tasks of neutralizing the Alliance naval groups in the central and eastern parts of the specified water area, during the start of the special operation in Ukraine, were completed and an excessive presence is not required.


It should be noted that it is not yet completely clear which forces of the Northern, Pacific, Black Sea and Baltic Fleets of the Russian Navy will remain in the Mediterranean Sea for an indefinite period near the Syrian Tartus. At the same time, Western navigation resources and the media report that the Russian squadron is leaving the Mediterranean Sea, giving details of what is happening.

Part of the Russian pennants have already passed the Strait of Gibraltar and entered the Atlantic Ocean, heading to their base in Severomorsk for crew rest after a long trip. On August 24, the missile cruiser Marshal Ustinov (Project 1164 Atlant) of the Northern Fleet followed this route. The next day, the BOD "Vice-Admiral Kulakov" (project 1155) and the medium sea tanker "Vyazma" SF, which was seen at anchor 30 miles north of Beni Saf (Algeria), followed the same route the next day.

The command of the Northern Fleet confirmed the end of their mission. At the same time, two NATO ships are following them: the frigate HMS Lancaster (F229) of the Royal Navy and the patrol boat NRP Sines (P362) of the Portuguese Navy. The frigate "Admiral Kasatonov" (project 22350) and the rescue tug "Nikolay Chiker" SF are still in the Mediterranean Sea.

In addition, the following are present in the Mediterranean Sea: the Varyag missile cruiser (Project 1164 Atlant), the Admiral Tributs BOD (Project 1155) of the Pacific Fleet, the Admiral Grigorovich frigate (Project 11356R) of the Black Sea Fleet and the medium reconnaissance ship Vasily Tatishchev" of the Baltic Fleet.

    Wag your tongue, not toss bags, like "our smaller brothers" Americans do rotation normally, but we have a disaster.
    We also need to make a base in Tartus with a ship repair plant, As the Americans came to Okinawa, the ship was cut into ferrous metal there.

      Among the Americans, in the order of rotation Truman was replaced by Bush, and who will replace Ustinov?

        There remains a similar Atlant-Varyag, Kasatonov, Grigorovich. The last two with calibers.

          It’s just that for some the balance does not change, for others it’s pretty thinned out, and the presence of Caliber is weak consolation

    The usual thing, some left, others came. It's a matter of life. But not the author of publications, not Western partners, they don’t know the number of our submarines and where they are in the Mediterranean. This is the reality that really stresses them out.

    And what NATO and US ships are there? Everyone knows everything about ours, but what about enemy ships?

    wasted fuel, supplies and motor resources, a typical senseless "flag demonstration" loved by members of the aircraft carrier sect from which no one is cold or hot, at the same time exposed our nuclear submarines and SSBNs in the North, almost half of the fleet dangles in the Mediterranean defenseless targets for NATO .... you need to get out of there the Varangian, so as not to be sunk like Moscow, to withdraw Kasatonov and it is desirable to withdraw all 1155 and 11356 to the north .... ps the new English aircraft carrier broke down again, proving my postulate that Kuzi was of no use, only losses

      And what, commercial dry cargo ships with machine guns and "special containers" against pirates can replace the Russian Navy?

        for the functions of the convoy, the protection of navigation and fishing, karakurts and corvettes are useful, and on the oceans corvettes and frigates, but this is called a combat mission! but just hanging out in the Mediterranean just in case is nonsense, it would have been better to send submarines there and some kind of supply ships or karakurt minesweepers and IPCs as a cover for these submarines, as if there was no point in sending cruisers somewhere at all, and large frigates of Kasatonov and such 1155, they must serve in the North and Kamchatka so that our nuclear submarines would not be hit due to bungling like an explosion of ammunition and the loss of aircraft in the Crimea, to expose nuclear submarine bases for the sake of a senseless display of the flag, this is a mistake = a crime!
