    Not a particularly relevant country for Russia exactly either

    If they don't want to make money off refueling and resupplying then that's their business. I'm sure Algeria would be happy to oblige instead

    Na they're a totally woke and cucked nation. 15% of the youth identify as LGBT, or whatever.

    Not a matter of fighting communism for them, just following Washington

    It is fine. If they don't want to earn money and sell things to the Russian Navy I am sure there will be other countries with ports who are prepared to get that business.

    Worst case scenario they might have to build a few more supply and support ships to extend their endurance at sea.

    Shift them into the less reliable potential partners list and carry on.

    No problem, Russian ships will refuel in Algeria

    It is the typical summer soap opera, the government denies the supply of fuel to Russia (already happened in 2015), and after a couple of months forget about the matter

    The irony is that the owner of the bunkering company that operates in Ceuta was a minister of the conservative government (in 2015), which logically shortly after withdrew and let the Russian ships refuel.

    The level of servility of the government and the media in Spain towards the American Master is disgusting

    I'm genuinely surprised that Russia hasn't opened a naval base in Algeria by now, they're one of the few time-tested, true allies of Russia in the whole MENA region.

    Assad laid up under Uncle Scam for a short while, Morocco handed over Russian gear to America the 1st chance they got, Egypt crawled completely under the western sphere of influence for 40 years straight playing second fiddle to Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Monarchs and even Turkey, Iran couldn't offer billions of dollars for western commercial jets fast enough, and China isn't an ally so much as a rabid opportunist that wouldn't have hesitated to join NATO and its Eastern European lapdogs in carving up Russia, Yugoslavia-Style had Khordorkovsky came to power instead of Putin.

    Spanish PM Pedro Sánchez is just following EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell. Both are fiery Russophobes and members of the "transgender" so-called Socialist Party of ineffable Felipe González and José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero who set conservative trends as well as NATO submission among the Spanish leftist movement in the 90s.

    What would Algeria need a Russian naval base there for though?

    It has its own relationship with Europe to think about. Russia serves as a valuable counter-balance to Western influence for them and as an ally against Islamists, but it's just one vector of its foreign policy.

    Russia itself doesn't need a naval base in the Western Mediterranean; it has few interests there in any case. Just a reliable place to refuel will do nicely.

    I do agree yes but a naval base (and air base) would not only provide NATO free refueling facilities, but it would also provide transit protection to and from the Western Med.

    Russia is already building a Naval base in Sudan (Red Sea) and military facilities in Egypt and Eritrea. Even as far south as Madagascar and Mozambique.

    Yeah, but it is a kind of different story.
    That bases or facilities are there to secure the route to the Indian Ocean.
    And there is no other way, as long as the idea of making a canal from Caspian to the Persian Gulf is dead meat.
    And that route will be more and more important, as there are increasing Russian interests in the region, including Africa and SE Asia.

    Same story - just different ocean Laughing

    A little bit of security for your ships and subs is a hell of a lot better better than nothing.

    The Kremlin press service previously reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin on August 23, via videoconference, will give the command to lay down warships for the Navy at the leading shipbuilding enterprises of the Russian Federation.

    "Sevmash will lay down two strategic nuclear submarines of project 955A, at Admiralteyskiye Vervyh - two diesel-electric submarines of project 636.3, at the Amur shipyard - corvettes of projects 20380 and 20385," the source said

    The floating dock "Sviyaga" with the nuclear submarine "K-3" will arrive in Belomorsk on August 31

    In early September, the dock will reach St. Petersburg, after which the boat will be towed to Kronstadt, where it will become part of the museum exposition.

    MOSCOW, August 31. / TASS /. The Sviyaga floating dock, which is making an inter-fleet passage from the Northern Fleet to the Baltic by inland waterways, will arrive in Belomorsk on Tuesday. This was reported by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    "The floating dock" Sviyaga "with the nuclear submarine" K-3 "" Leninsky Komsomol "will arrive in Belomorsk on Tuesday," the message says.

    In the near future, the dock with the submarine will pass the White Sea-Baltic Canal and in the first ten days of September will arrive in St. Petersburg at the Severnaya Verf. There the submarine will be withdrawn from the floating dock and then towed to Kronstadt, where it will become part of the museum exposition.

    USC head: offered the fleet several options for the appearance of the nuclear destroyer "Leader"

    Moscow. September 3rd. INTERFAX - The General Director of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) Alexei Rakhmanov, in an interview with Interfax columnist Pavel Koryashkin, spoke about the construction of nuclear submarines, the repair of heavy cruisers, the prospects of the Leader destroyer and the equipping of ships with Zircon missiles.

    - Alexey Lvovich, has USC completed the relocation of the main office to St. Petersburg? Is the final cost of the relocation already clear?

    - The move ends. Most of the employees have already settled in the office on Vasilievsky Island. There will be another "wave" in the fall - when those who work with the state defense order will move to St. Petersburg - they need premises with special conditions that meet the requirements of preserving state secrets. Such conditions are now being created.

    We will understand the final cost of relocation after several years, when both ad hoc and regular expenses, including those on business trips to Moscow, become obvious. We initially assumed that the total amount would be about 1.5 billion rubles.


    - How do you assess the fulfillment of the state defense order by USC enterprises this year? How many warships and submarines are surrendered this year, how many next?

    - In May, we handed over to the Navy the lead nuclear submarine with cruise missiles of the Yasen-M project - Kazan. This is the future of the Russian submarine fleet, and we expect that Yaseni will form a large series that will reliably protect not only the country's borders, but also its interests in the world arena.

    The logistics support vessel Vsevolod Bobrov and the base minesweeper Georgy Kurbatov have just been handed over. And by the end of the year, our enterprises are completing the construction of four more ships and the repair of three.

    Next year we will continue the construction of serial submarines of the Borey-A and Yasen-M projects, as well as start testing the nuclear submarines Krasnoyarsk and Generalissimo Suvorov.


    - At what stage of work on new nuclear submarines - "Prince Oleg" and "Novosibirsk"? Are there plans to hand them over to the military this year?

    - These ships are undergoing factory tests and are among those to be handed over this year.


    - Many are closely following the fate of two heavy cruisers - the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov and the nuclear-powered Admiral Nakhimov. What is the readiness of the ships now? What are the terms of their return to service?

    - The progress of the repair of the heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov is under the special control of the leadership of the Ministry of Defense, the Navy and the management of the corporation.

    The main reason why Zvezdochka will not be able to deliver the aircraft-carrying cruiser in 2022 is the failure to repair the Kirov-Energomash - we are talking about the main turbo-gear units of the ship's power plant.

    Currently, the work has been launched in full. The systems and mechanisms of the cruiser are being repaired, bulky equipment is purchased and loaded onto the ship, electrical work is performed. The ship is preparing for the second phase of the dock repairs in the summer of 2022.

    The situation is similar for "Admiral Nakhimov", its repairs should be completed next year.


    - In what year may the USC begin to transfer ships and submarines with Zircon hypersonic missiles to the military?

    - The decision to equip our ships with this or that type of missile in any case remains with the Ministry of Defense. When such a decision is made, we will implement it.


    - In 2019, you said that the USC was preparing for the start of the serial construction of the Leader nuclear destroyers. You recently announced that you are expecting a new technical assignment for the destroyers from the Ministry of Defense. Will these destroyers get to the new GPV?

    - The issue of the construction of the Leader destroyers, as well as the formation of a new GPV, is in the exclusive jurisdiction of the Navy and the Ministry of Defense as a state customer. For their part, the USC enterprises completed the preliminary design and offered the fleet several options for the appearance of the ship.

    Now the military department will have to decide how it sees a promising destroyer, if it considers it necessary for the fleet.


    - When, in your estimation, will Russia start building large ships - cruisers, aircraft carriers? Will they be in the new GPV?

    - It has already been said about the formation of the SAP. As for the ships of large dimensions, they are being built now. We can recall the large landing ships of project 11711 with improved characteristics (serial numbers 303 and 304), the rear support ships of the project 23120 Elbrus, as well as the Vsevolod Bobrov, which has just been handed over to the navy.

    Finally, we have the frigates of the far sea zone 22350, which are a good illustration of the fact that new types of weapons allow the construction of ships with a high degree of saturation of weapons with a lower displacement.
