    Russian Black Sea Fleet to get six more naval ships by yearend, says commander

    Earlier in the day, a parade of naval ships and a military sports festival took place in the Black Sea port city of Sevastopol to mark Navy Day

    SEVASTOPOL, July 29./TASS/. The Russian Black Sea Fleet will get six more ships of different types this year, fleet’s Commander Alexander Moiseyev told reporters on Sunday.

    "I will speak about the year 2018 - we have already accepted for service three ships. Of course, this is the frigate [Admiral] Makarov that today takes part in the Main Naval Parade... And of course, this is the medium reconnaissance ship Ivan Khurs, as well as other vessels. We will get six more naval ships of different types this year," the vice admiral said, specifying that he was also referring to small-size missile ships.

    He said trials of the Project 22160 lead corvette Vasily Bykov will be ended within the next few months, and the corvette will pass into the Black Sea Fleet service.

    Earlier in the day, a parade of naval ships and a military sports festival took place in the Black Sea port city of Sevastopol to mark Navy Day. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev attended the events.

    More than 30 warships, submarines and boats, five auxiliary vessels, more than 20 aircraft and over 30 units of military hardware participated.

    With the commission of:

    1 Project 22350
    1 Project 11711
    1 Project 21631

    I would not expect more for 2018.

    Russia is now ready for the decommission in 2018 of:

    1 Project 1134B
    1 Project 1171
    4 Project 1204 (potentially transferable to Novorussia, now that the US begins to give ships to Ukraine)

    No idea. They are not saying it was installed in any submarine at all.

    UK relatively tame on the propaganda as Ustinov & Severomorsk head out through English Channel post-Navy Day https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/news-and-latest-activity/news/2018/august/08/180808-royal-navy-monitors-russian-warships-in-english-channel
    The Portsmouth-based ship sailed from Dover to monitor the Russian destroyer Severomorsk and cruiser Marshal Ustinov as they passed through the UK’s area of interest yesterday (Tuesday).

    HMS Diamond has spent the last month undertaking various duties around the UK as one of the Royal Navy’s high readiness escort ships. She is at 24 hours’ notice to react to any incident or tasking in or around British waters.

    Commander Ben Keith, the Commanding Officer of HMS Diamond, said: “HMS Diamond is proud to once again be playing her part in protecting the UK by monitoring these vessels on their transit.

    “This is routine business for the Royal Navy and the second time my ship’s company have undertaken such an escort duty this summer.

    Taking the long route home or maybe a visit to the Eastern Med? dunno

    Royal Navy apparently needs a budget increase at least so they can buy a non-potato camera

    Russian frigate has tracked down USN SSGN in the Med. Sea
    http://www.ng.ru/news/624851.html?print=Y https://regnum.ru/news/polit/2463057.html

    Nothing is mentioned about its possible CM strike on Syria. My guess is that the sub was detected only after it happened. Otherwise they'd claim that the strike from it was averted or will have to admit that they lost contact with it before the strike.

    Caspian Sea finally "divided" between the five countries
    Twenty-two years after the start of the talks, the parties finally came to the conclusion: the Caspian is not a lake or a sea, or both. The countries of the "five" created a hybrid - something in between the sea distribution, with the allocation of the shelf, free economic zone and fishing zone. https://www.segodnya.ua/world/wnews/kaspiyskoe-more-podelili-mezhdu-pyatyu-stranami-1162310.html
    This treaty will remove potential tensions between them, esp. the RF, Azerbaijan & Iran. Less work for their CGs & navies.

    Bastion-karpenko reports they've entered the Med so presumably Syria it is.

    Baltic Fleet patrol vessel Yaroslav Mudry enters Sudan’s port

    The Russian navy sailors will also carry out the necessary maintenance check and overhaul of the ship during the three-day anchorage

    KALININGRAD, August 15. /TASS/. The Yaroslav Mudry (Yaroslav the Wise) patrol vessel, which is keeping the watch in the Gulf of Aden area, entered the Republic of the Sudan’s port for three-day anchorage, spokesman for the Baltic Fleet Roman Martov said on Wednesday.

    "The Baltic Fleet’s Yaroslav Mudry patrol vessel, that is performing counter-piracy tasks in the Gulf of Aden area, entered the Red Sea and made a business call at the Sudan’s port," Martov reported.

    At the port the seamen will replenish the ship’s water and food supplies, and part of the crew that is off the watch will come ashore. "The Russian navy sailors will also carry out the necessary maintenance check and overhaul of the ship during the three-day anchorage," the Baltic Fleet spokesman added.

    The Yaroslav Mudry left the Baltiysk city naval harbor on April 15. The main tasks of the voyage are the demonstration of St. Andrew’s flag, the performance of tasks in accordance with the training plan and the provision of secure civil shipping in the Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa area.

    .......

    First of all Yaroslav Mudry is NOT patrol vessel, it's anti-submarine warfare frigate.

    And second this is why Bykov-class patrol vessels are necessary for Russian Navy: to take the load off from proper warships and free them up by taking on this two-bit nonsense assignments​.

    Instead of looking for submarines they have full-sized ASW frigates playing Coast Guard in Aden. And this is hardly worst situation, sometimes they send Udalois or even Slavas to waste time and mileage on this.

    Bykovs can't come soon enough....

    Dunno about Slavas but they did send PtG to do anti-piracy the one time in possibly the most glorious over-kill ever.

    Thing about the 22160s is everyone else is happily sending proper ASW Frigates & Destroyers to do that duty, its kinda weird that of all the countries that could do it Russia is the only one really investing in not just 1 or 2 ships dedicated to the task but 6 of them.

    I'm curious about what route Yaroslav Mudry took, seems to have gone mostly under the radar so to speak, I think maybe round Africa rather than via the Med?

    Here's something a bit interesting http://charly015.blogspot.com/2018/08/facilidades-para-los-buques-rusos-en.html
    Russia has just done a deal with Madagascar to allow Russian ships to make stops.

    Its not like Russia is about to station a squadron of Cruisers over on the East coast of Africa to 'challenge' US navy in the Indian Ocean or anything but its interesting to see 'isolated' Russian diplomacy is getting wins despite all manner of pressure against it.

    A while back there was a big US/UK led hoo-hah over Russian ships stopping in Spanish Ceuta on the way to Syria.
    Meanwhile according to Charly015 Russia has successfully also done deals with places like Seychelles, Mozambique & Tanzania as well.
