Where are the Statesmen (and stateswomen) of real worth in the world who mean what they say, take action and then follow through with a proper plan of action to achieve a just and proper outcome in a major crisis?

 

Today in Europe they are missing, and instead what we have is a generation of leaders who have sprung from a gilded youth in the West or have been shaped by the latter days of the old Warsaw Pact.

Moscow unleashes all-arms offensive in Syria, including ship-launched cruise missiles

 

Odin’s Eye Commentary

 

RussianDefMInCruise3

Russia last month (September) deployed a naval task group, spearheaded by the missile cruiser Moskva, to operate off the coast of Syria. The cruiser’s voyage followed on from earlier deployments of the destroyer Smetlivy, along with an intelligence-gathering vessel and amphibious warfare ships, all reportedly heading for a Syrian port or waters off the Levant.

 

This was all simultaneous with troops and fighter jets being sent to bases in Syria and an advisory notice issued by Moscow for a major exercise this month (Oct) scheduled to include live firings of missiles. According to the Russian defence ministry its naval units are rehearsing Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), anti-shipping and air defence tactics, in addition to carrying out Search and Rescue (SAR) training.

Report by Iain Ballantyne

 

RussiaAtlantic1

An ambitious new strategy in which Russia will aim to contest supremacy over the Atlantic and in the Arctic has been laid out during a meeting chaired by President Vladimir Putin aboard a warship.

 

Under major revisions to its maritime doctrine and operational stance, the Russian Navy will also maintain a permanent squadron in the Mediterranean. It was all outlined aboard the guided-missile frigate RFS Admiral of the Fleet Sergei Gorshkov, lead ship in a proposed class of at least six new 4,500 tons frigates being constructed for the Russian Navy.
