One of the main components of the exercise combined group will be the tasks of planting commando units in several places at once, as the strategy of frisky handling of personnel and special equipment on board the amphibious ships from the places where the paratroopers and marines were doing tasks assigned to them.
In addition to performing amphibious operations during the exercise is planned to implement a phased anti-submarine defense, which will participate in naval aviation — the Ka-27. Of course, in the process of anti-submarine defense exercises will be possible not only part of the overall scenario exercises, and are fully aware of the need, as enthusiasm for what is going to solve our homeland in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea in the west, and just a great, if I may say so, obviously not healthy. But more on that a bit later. While back to that, what other operations will make Russian sailors in January during the considered maneuvers.
These operations will include naval artillery firing at targets located both at sea and on land. Strikes on ground targets planned for the landing operations cover and back loading troops. Making an artillery strike entrusted to several ships, including the drifters "Yaroslav the Wise" (Baltic Fleet) and the "sharpness" (Black Sea Fleet), RK "Moscow" (flagship of the Black Sea Fleet), is also anti-submarine ship "Severomorsk" (Northern Fleet). Themselves landing operations will be carried out with the ship "Saratov" and "Novocherkassk" (Black Sea Fleet), "Alexander Shabalin" and "Kaliningrad" (both — the Baltic Fleet).
During naval exercises will work out training actions related to emergency towing vessels, countering piracy in the Gulf of Aden groups (namely, opposition from attacks of small vessels). Despite the fact that according to media reports, the main Somali filibuster, which in Mogadishu is the huge mouth, announced his own retirement from the piracy business and move into a huge policy, it is unlikely this will lead to the fact that the waters of the Gulf of Aden is now complete serenity reign Well … in the world's oceans are now far not only the pirates of Somalia. That is why the development of action plans to repel pirate attacks were not ignore the Russian sailors.
But true, speak out so that the highlight of all the planned exercises in the Mediterranean, will combat maneuvering in the Syrian coast. Mezhflotskaya group of Russian warships led by the missile cruiser "Moskva" will fulfill tactical actions in a particular vicinity of Syria. In this case, there is information that the planned visit of several at once Russian ships to the base of the logistics of the Russian Navy in the port of Tartus (Syria).
Specifically, the planned Russian warships maneuvers off the coast of Syria, calling at Tartus became the object of unceasing criticism from the West. A number of Western news agencies gave the news of the upcoming exercises Russian ships in the eastern Mediterranean as Moscow's attempt to solve the Syrian issue of military interference from the outside.
"Progressive" press the U.S., Britain, several Arab states were full of headlines about the militarism of the Russian Federation and its attempts to click on the "free people of Syria, which not lust to build their own country at the head of dictator Assad. " With all of this publication zabugornye rushed to declare that our home leads to Syria so imposing its own group of warships, that the evacuation of Russian people with the Syrian countryside, then necessarily enter into a military operation against the so-called opposition.
Yes there Western publications … There we have our own "prophets" in the media, that echo their zabugornom employees, claiming that Moscow is a concern that the side of the Syrian "rebels" run across more and more of the military standing army of Syria . Like, specifically this occasion and gave Putin (without it), immediately give the order to turn the tide in Syria purely anti-democratic direction.
For obvious reasons, when the media reports in a single material having phrases like "bloody Assad regime", "Putin is ready to support the Assad regime" and "military incursion into Syria from Russia", then especially impressionable readers (especially for the West) again begin to show anti-Russian sentiment. Now, if the teachings of U.S. naval ships carried, so it would be a different matter — only just learning and nothing more … But oh so soon as it comes on the Russian Federation, immediately arise idle speculation that "Putin's clawed hand" and things like that.
But, in fairness, it must be said that especially impressionable readers who believe in the fact that in Syria with Assad fight the real champions of the democratic system, and not ill-matched militant groups, even in the West is running out. People, despite the relentless pressure of the information, for soon had to realize that not far away any military operation, which begs the NATO countries, is one that can lead the country to a democratic welfare. The ongoing war in the country plainclothes "victory of democracy" Libya, as in Egypt, where the new "democratic" president had podgresti for himself all power — brightest examples of the consequences of military intervention and blind support of one of the parties to the outside.
Of course, the amendment to the shaken own style, many Western politicians have now decided to use the factor of increasing military power of Russia. Now it does not matter what kind of military training initiative Russian Federation outside the territorial limits of the offshore and will be presented by certain media zabugornom as an attempt by the Russian Federation military to solve their tasks.
Certainly, if you want a special Moscow could use the naval group formed to "solve the Syrian issue," but our country has a very bloody experience of roles in obscure zabugornyh operations. Task of the Russian Federation during the large-scale exercises in the eastern Mediterranean region is not whether to invade the area of the country and militarily support one of the parties to the armed conflict, and in fact, that the so-called world community suddenly appeared illusions that world there is only one country, able to promote their interests.
Not a good experience Libyan "abstinence" from the Russian Federation, of course, will not be repeated, because now any of us can perfectly create, that is transformed into an attempt to close their eyes to the painful geopolitical issues. And get involved in the Syrian protracted conflict, risking the lives of their own people, our homeland does not want.
But the fact of holding naval exercises in the vicinity of a particular area of the country, around which is now so much debate, of course, can play to increase the prestige of the Russian Federation in the global geopolitical terms. When someone suddenly there a strong desire to solve the problem in Syria by the same method as it was settled in Libya (the SAM «Patriot» in Turkey is an example), then let these people remem
ber that there are other forces that can be impressive counterweight. The very presence of Russian warships off the coast of Syria is able to cool even the hottest of the head, which for the near future believing in their infallibility and invincibility.
Not a lot of Russian side now enjoys excellent western methodology of those explanations, or other operations. Namely, the Ministry of Defence said that the start of the teachings of the Russian Navy ships in general have nothing to do with the events that are taking place on the ground Syria. Like, clean water coincidence … This position is even more annoying West. Well, what? As they say, it was, who learn …
