Last weekend, the ships of the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) returned to Vladivostok after Russian-Chinese exercises. In Kamchatka, they are preparing to arrive at the new-generation submarine "Alexander Nevsky".

Against the background of general modernization of the Russian armed forces, special attention is paid to the Far Eastern direction: the current geopolitical situation calls for strengthening military security in the Asia-Pacific region. Military-technical cooperation with China emphasizes the Eastern priority.

1 June, a detachment of ships of the Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) with an orchestra and a roasted pig met in Vladivostok after the completion of the Russian-Chinese exercises. The sailors of the two countries successfully completed tasks aimed at confronting various threats at sea, including the fight against terrorists. The detachment consists of the missile cruiser Varyag, the destroyer Quick, the large landing ship Admiral Nevelskoy, the tanker Ilim and the tug Kalar commanded by Sergey Lipilin's 1 captain.

The detachment left Vladivostok on May 14, and on May 18 arrived in China to participate in the joint exercise "Sea Interaction - 2014". On May 20, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping took part in the opening ceremony of the exercises at the Usun naval base.

Russian-Chinese exercises were held for the third time. Next year, the next military exercises will coincide with the 70 anniversary of the victory in the Great Patriotic War.

While external cooperation with China will continue, Russia is building up its own military potential. So, before the end of the year, a strategic missile submarine "Alexander Nevsky" should arrive at the point of permanent basing on Kamchatka. This was reported by the commander of the troops of the Eastern Military District, Colonel-General Sergei Surovikin, during the outgoing military council of the TSB in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

“In accordance with the instructions of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, by October 2014, the construction of the facilities of the first-line base station should be completed, and by the end of the year the submarine Alexander Nevsky will begin the course of combat training,” said S.Surovikin. - Upon completion of the factory tests, “Vladimir Monomakh” will also arrive in Kamchatka.

"Alexander Nevsky" - the second (and first production) boat of the 955 project "Borey" - laid on Sevmash 19 in March 2004 of the year, launched on December 6 in 2010 of the year.

The missile submarine cruisers of this class, according to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, will become the backbone of Russia's naval strategic nuclear forces for the coming decades. The strategic cruiser of the project 955 "Borey" was developed in the Central Design Bureau of Marine Engineering "Rubin". The main armament of warships is the new Bulava missile system. Each submarine of the project 955 can carry 16 intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) on solid fuel R-30 "Bulava" with a flight range of more than 8 thousand kilometers. The length of the "Borei" - 170 meters, width - 13,5 meters, working depth of immersion - 400 meters. At the "Borei" the underwater speed is 29 knots. This is about 54 kilometers per hour. The displacement of the submarine is 14720 thousand tons, the crew is 107 people. The submarines are equipped with a floating rescue chamber designed for the entire crew.

It is assumed that before 2020, the Navy will receive 8 nuclear submarine missile carriers.

In the future, 16 new houses will be built on these sites by the forces of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

"The arrival of a new generation of submarines is still a huge amount of work to be done, including the construction of coastal infrastructure, - Said Governor of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Ilyukhin. - 2 dwellings for submariners are ready. However, for new housing in a closed city, it is necessary to resettle families that have lost contact with the Ministry of Defense. We have already started designing networks and preparing for the construction of a number of houses for immigrants, but due to lack of funds, the process is still delayed. ”

In addition to the arrival of the strategic nuclear submarines of the Borey project, Kamchatka will be strengthened in other areas: S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems, Bal-E coastal missile systems and upgraded Il-38 H aircraft will be delivered, the press service said. Kamchatka Territory.
