Russia on Thursday announced sweeping naval drills in several parts of the world this month.
In an interview with the media, the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said that in view of Russia’s strong military operations, the United States has abandoned the principles it had previously adhered to, and is ready to respond to Russia’s security requirements in public in accordance with Russia’s requirements. Safeguarding advice. Although the specific content of the reply is unknown, on the surface, the United States has shown signs of soft compromise, which shows how tough and sturdy Russia’s upcoming military action is!
“The drills are intended to practice navy and air force action to protect Russian national interests in the world’s oceans and to counter military threats to the Russian Federation,” the ministry said, adding that they will start this month and run through February.
According to earlier reports, the Russian navy will hold the largest naval exercise since collapse of Soviet Union from late January to February. At that time, the Russian Navy’s Northern Fleet, Baltic Sea Fleet, Black Sea Fleet and Pacific Fleet will be in charge of the Arctic Ocean waters, Atlantic waters, Baltic Sea waters, Black Sea waters, Mediterranean waters and Pacific waters. More than a dozen drills, including air supremacy, land attack, ship attack, beach landing operations, secondary nuclear strikes, joint air defense operations, and shore-based anti-ship operations, are aimed directly at the US-led NATO organization.
According to the exercise plan jointly formulated by the Russian General Staff and the Russian Air force, the Russian Navy will dispatch a strategic nuclear submarine including the “Borei” class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines, “Yasen” class nuclear attack submarine. More than 140 combat ships of various types, including cruisers, guided missile frigates, and large anti-submarine ships. The Russian Air Force will dispatch more than 60 combat aircraft of various types, including Su-25, Su-27, Su-34, Su-35, MiG-29, and MiG-31. In addition, the Russian naval shore-based combat force will also dispatch more than 1,000 pieces of military equipment, including anti-ship missile systems, air defense and anti-missile systems, etc., with a total of tens of thousands of soldiers participating in the exercise.
The Russian navy chief of staff said that the Russian navy has not held such a large-scale naval exercise for a long time, and the last time such a military exercise of this scale was in the Soviet era. Originally, Russia, which was struggling with military spending, did not want to hold such a costly naval exercise, but Russia’s current situation forced Russia to make such a decision. Yes, without showing Russia’s all-round combat capability, NATO also believes that Russia will only scare people with nuclear weapons! It can be seen that Russia’s decisive deployment of such a large number of combat ships and combat aircraft not only fully reflects Russia’s strong maritime combat strength, but also fully demonstrates Russia’s determination and confidence in confronting NATO to the end.
