Russia's only aircraft carrier to receive new weapons Russia's Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier will be equipped with new sea-launched Pantsir (NATO reporting name - Greyhound) anti-aircraft missile and gun complexes, as well as new power equipment, deputy commander of the Russian Navy Victor Bursuk told reporters. "The works will commence in May. The air defense capacity of the aircraft carrier will thus be improved. New sea-launched Pantsir complexes will be installed, and the power equipment will be replaced - new boilers and new pumps will be installed," he said.According to Bursuk, the Admiral Kuznetsov will resume its service in the Russian Navy after the modernization by 2021. Currently, the Russian Navy has only one aircraft carrier, or rather, a heavy aircraft carrying cruiser  Admiral Kuznetsov. She was put into operation in 1991 before the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Western media still horrified about Russia's Doomsday weapon Western media continue discussing the Russian Status-6 arms complex known as the Doomsday weapon. According to Business Insider, the Status-6 unmanned submarine has enormous destructive power and can carry warheads with a capacity of 50 megatons. Nuclear weapons of this capacity can produce an underwater explosion, the consequences of which will be comparable to the 2011 tsunami in Japan.According to experts, such an underwater explosion may cause giant 100-meter waves. It was earlier reported that the US military came to conclusion that the Russian underwater Status-6 vehicle was a challenge to which the United States had no answer.Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, Thomas Callender, a retired US Navy officer, said that given the maximum speed of the Status-6 of more than 29 meters per second and the depth of submersion of more than a kilometer, this makes the new Russian submarine a difficult target to destroy with the help of active weapons, The National Interest wrote. The United States currently has Mark-48 torpedoes, which, with a maximum range of 55 kilometers and a submersion depth of 800 meters, are incapable of destroying the Status-6.Pravda.RuRead article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...

Russian Defense Ministry shows fragments of 'smart missiles' shot down in Syria The Russian Defense Ministry has shown fragments of "smart missiles" that the Western coalition used in the attack on Syria on April 14. The missiles were shot down by Syrian air defences, chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoy said. "Fragments of the cruise missiles found in areas of interception have characteristic holes from damaging elements of guided anti-aircraft missiles. There are markers on the missiles indicating serial numbers, dates, manufacturers and other data." Rudskoy said. Rudskoy stressed that specialists will easily identify the origin of those fragments. He also said that at least 8.5 tons of explosives should have detonated in the area of the Syrian research center in Bazreh, but the scale of the damage speaks otherwise. The United States, Great Britain and France fired 105 missiles, but only 22 of them reached their targets. Pravda.RuRead article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...

UK's Lehram fails to challenge the sale of Kuzbass mine The Arbitration Court of the Kemerovo region dismissed the suit from British company Lehram Capital Investments LTD that was disputing the deal to sell its former asset - Kuzbass mine Gramoteinskaya, which, as the company believes, had been concluded under pressure, TASS reports. Before October 2013, Gramoteinskaya coal mine was a part of Evraz, but then it was sold for 10,000 rubles ($160 according to the current exchange rate - ed. note) to Britain's Lehram. In December 2013, the coal company, as reported by the administration of the Kemerovo region, went under the control of entrepreneur Alexander Schukin (he was involved in the case as a third party). At the same time, Lehram CEO Igor Rudyk, a national of Kazakhstan, was detained in Kemerovo for violating migration legislation. Two years later, the British company filed a lawsuit against the Mining Equipment Repair Plant to recognize the 2013 sale of the mine null and void. "The court has decided to dismiss the claim," Judge Larisa Belyaeva said.... Pubdate: Wed, 25 Apr 2018 11:04:00 +0300

Israel vows to destroy Russia's S-300 in Syria in case of danger Representatives of the Israeli Defence Ministry responded to recent reports about the possible delivery of S-300 SAM systems from Russia to Syria. Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel would destroy those systems if Syria uses them against Israeli aircraft. The Israeli army will destroy Syrian S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems if they act against aircraft of the Israeli Air Force, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in an interview with Ynetnews."If these weapons are used against us, we will act against them. One thing must be clear: if someone shoots down our aircraft, we will destroy them," Lieberman said."It is important for us that the defensive weapons that the Russians are transferring to Syria should not be used against us," Lieberman said.The minister added that Israel did not interfere in Syria's internal affairs. At the same time, the official added, Israel will not allow Iran to inundate Syria with modern arms systems that would be directed against Israel. According to Lieberman, Israel's problem is not Russia, because Russian air defence systems had already been deployed in Syria and they had never been used against Israel. "We have an open line, we do have a communication channel. Sometimes it's a complex discussion, but it's open," he explained. "We have been constantly in coordination for several years and we can avoid friction with the Russians," concluded Lieberman.On April 23, the Kommersant newspaper said that Russia could start delivering S-300 systems to Syria already in the near future because the question had been resolved. Putin's official spokesman Dmitry Peskov declined to comment on the information. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the decision on this matter had not yet been taken.It is worthy of note that Israel regularly strikes the territory of Syria. The country conducted the last attack on April 9, when Israeli F-15 fighter aircraft fired missiles at the Syrian airbase in Homs after it was reported that an Iranian air defence system had been delivered there. WSJ said that the Iranian air defence complex was destroyed before it was brought into ready-to-use condition. The Israeli aircraft also destroyed the hangar, where Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles were stored. Pravda.Ru... Pubdate: Tue, 24 Apr 2018 19:24:00 +0300

Russia's S-300 systems against Tomahawk missiles flying towards Syria Russia can supply S-300 Favorit anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria for free. However, the Russian Defense Ministry has not commented on the information. Are S-300 systems efficient against Tomahawk missiles? Will Russia's assistance to Syria cause damage to relations with Israel? Pravda.Ru asked these questions to expert at the Association of Military and Political Scientists, Andrei Koshkin."Russia's decision to ship S-300 systems to Syria will make Israel worry a lot. We understand the  situation that has been developing between the countries of the Middle East, and we know difficulties that Syria is experiencing in cooperation with Israel.Israel protects the sky from the direction of Golan Heights because there is no peace treaty  experience, and everything can be solved through hostilities. We all remember that prior to the missile attack on Syria, two F-15 fighters attacked the territory of Lebanon. It turned out that they were Israeli fighters. After the missile strike, nine missiles were launched - the Israelis believe that they have the right to attack whenever they want to, because there is no peace treaty with Syria. They keep the Arab Republic in an iron grip, because Iran has been building up its forces in the region. "Of course, Israel takes the side of the United States, the UK and France after the missile attack. Therefore, Russia wants to help Syria protect its sky with the help of anti-aircraft missile systems, even if Israel is against it. After all, the world could see a group of nuclear powers committing an act of aggression against a sovereign state. Damascus found itself under the protection of diplomatic measures only. Russia needs to ship S-300 systems to Syria to put an end to this unbridled aggression."Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru... Pubdate: Tue, 24 Apr 2018 16:43:00 +0300

Large lake of boiling water found on Mars Russian radio enthusiast Valentin Degterev found a huge lake full of boiling water on pictures of Mars. The photos, taken by NASA, show a body of water two kilometres in diameter in the area of the south pole of Mars, URA.ru says. The lake is located in a meteorite crater. Having "discovered" so much water on Mars, Degterev assumed that scientists conceal a lot of information about the existence of water on Mars saying that Mars is an anhydrous planet. Like on Earth, the water in the newly-discovered lake on Mars is blue and liquid. The radio enthusiast also assumed that the water in the lake boils all the time and produces a lot of steam. The researcher provided the coordinates of the site, where the lake was found, and said that the discovery was extremely valuable, because nothing like that was ever found on the Red Planet.

Poland defends its airspace with the help of Soviet systems made during the 1940s Polish officials said that in the event of a "war with Russia," the country would use Soviet weapons to defend itself against Russian missiles and aircraft.According to the National Interest, Poland still uses Soviet weapons along with national developments to protect its airspace.  The Polish army still has Soviet-made S-60 anti-aircraft systems developed in the 1940s.The Polish military also use ZU-23-2, adopted in the USSR in 1960. Nevertheless, Poland is expecting to receive USA's Patriot missiles, which will be difficult to integrate with the existing air defence system of Poland. Polish Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz announced the agreement on the supply of Patriot air defence systems in Poland in early July.Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...

Russia to deliver S-300 air defence systems to Syria for free Russia is to start supplying S-300 air defence systems to Syria in the near future. The shipments will be conducted free of charge, the Kommersant newspaper wrote adding that Russia is determined to take a swift effort to create the echeloned air defence system for Syria. The question about the transfer of S-300 systems to Syria remains "mostly political" and has been practically resolved. Components of S-300 systems, including radar stations, transport vehicles, command posts and missile launchers, will be delivered to Syria by military transport aircraft or vessels of the Russian Navy. It is possible that Russia will deliver the systems that have already been used in the Russian Armed Forces. On April 14, the Western coalition fired 103 missiles on Syria, but Syrian air defence forces shot down 71 of those missiles. Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...

Russia may interrupt regular flights with USA The United States creates visa problems for pilots of Russia's Aeroflot, even though Aeroflot is the only airline that makes regular flights between Russia and the USA. "It is possible that Russia and the United States of America will be left without air service. Aeroflot, the only company that makes regular flights between Russia and the United States, is likely to be forced to stop them, as their crews experience increasing difficulties with obtaining US visas," a statement from the press department of the Russian Foreign Ministry said. Putin's official spokesman Dmitry Peskov admitted that regular flights between Russia and the USA could be stopped, although the Russian administration would not want such a development....

Russia to introduce criminal responsibility for those implementing anti-Russian sanctions Vyacheslav Volodin, the Speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, spoke in favor of a legislative act to impose responsibility, including criminal liability, on those who implement anti-Russian decisions made by foreign countries in their activities on the territory of the Russian Federation, the press service of the lower house of the parliament said, RIA Novosti reports. "On April 20, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, at a meeting with representatives of business and expert circles, during the discussion of the bill about responsive measures to US sanctions against Russia, spoke in favor of imposing a ban on the implementation of US sanctions in the Russian Federation. He explained that it would be correct to introduce measures of responsibility in relation to those who execute anti-Russian decisions of foreign states in their activities on the territory of Russia. Mr. Volodin did not rule out measures of criminal responsibility either. In Russia, we must live according to Russian laws," the press service of the State Duma said in a statement. Pravda.Ru  ...

Russia delivers S-300 air defense systems to Syria? Several cargo ships that arrived to Syria's Tartus from Russia were unloaded under the guise of smokescreen Several cargo ships entered the Syrian port of Tartus, where the Russian naval base is located. It is believed that the vessels have arrived from the Russian port of Novorossiysk, but nothing is known about the cargo that the ships are carrying on board, news.com.au reports with reference to sources in Syria. It was said that the ships were unloaded secretly, under the guise of a smokescreen.

Yulia Skripal received toxic chemical injection while in a coma, Russian embassy officials say The Russian embassy in the United Kingdom said that there were high chances that a toxic chemical was injected into the blood of Yulia Skripal before her blood samples were collected. The Russian Embassy demanded the UK should let Russian medical specialists access the woman. "Russian citizen Yulia Skripal has been illegally detained by the British authorities since March 4, 2018, and her contacts with us have been blocked," a press secretary of the embassy said. He added that Russian diplomats are concerned about the state of the woman's health and the lack of official information about her. The official added that all statements that British official had made so far could not be considered reliable.According to the embassy spokesman, Russian specialists, having only the OPCW report, do not have a real picture of the situation and can not analyze the events that have happened in Salisbury. They can not assess the possible involvement of British intelligence services in the Salisbury incident either. Russian specialists ask more and more questions. For example, it remains unclear how a non-decomposed toxic chemical established by Porton Down was found in a blood sample of one of the victims 18 days after the contact, even though the other victim, who suffered a more serious poisoning, did not show such a phenomenon. According to him, such an observation was not typical of nerve agents, which may indirectly mean, with a high degree of probability, that a chemical agent had been injected into the blood of Yulia Skripal before her blood samples were collected when she was in a coma.Pravda.Ru...

Chinese experts point out to huge drawback of F-22 versus Su-57 Chinese experts conducted a comparative analysis of Su-57 and F-22 aircraft and came to curious conclusions. According to satellite images, the Russian military did deploy Su-57 fighter jets at Khmeymim airbase in Syria. Even though the Su-57 is a fifth-generation fighter, there were no special conditions provided for the airplane. Like all other aircraft, Su-57 fighters were parked in the open air, Chinese analysts noted. At the same time, F-22 fighters are very often kept in air conditioned hangars. Chinese specialists wondered whether US fifth-generation stealth fighter aircraft need to be kept in air conditioned hangars indeed. Originally, the F-22 was the first type of US stealth aircraft that can be serviced at the forefront. However, 50% of maintenance time for the F-22 has to be spent on the exploitation of radio-absorbing coating.

USA highly concerned about Russia's cold-blooded silence in response to missile attack on Syria The United States is concerned about the current crisis in the relations with Russia and suggests returning to reasonable policies to avoid a nuclear war, military expert Sergei Sudakov believes.A recent report from the US Congressional Research Center said that if the United States conduct an "instantaneous global strike," the missiles would most likely fly over the territories of Russia or China." "Many possible targets lie south of Russia and China, and the United States has historically planned to launch its ballistic missiles over the North Pole."The authors of the report believe that in such a situation, Moscow and Beijing may use nuclear weapons without having time to assess the threat. To prevent "misunderstanding" between Moscow and Washington, it is proposed to notify Russia of the planned launch and maintain constant contacts between the military of the two states.Sergei Sudakov, a member of the Academy of Military Sciences, political scientist and Americanist, told Pravda.Ru, that "the concept of sovereignty provides for certain conditions, when aerial weapons can fly over foreign territories only if the route has been coordinated with the countries that own those territories." "Otherwise, the missiles will be destroyed, and this is what the Russian military nuclear doctrine says," Sergei Sudakov said. If one reads the report "between the lines," "the US wants to resume the system of full-fledged control over airspace," Sergei Sudakov believes. The Americans were very much surprised with Russia's cold-blooded silence in response to their attacks on Syria. They clearly understand that Russia is not going to withdraw its earlier statements, they know that Russia will respond accordingly," Sergei Sudakov said. "The Americans indirectly speak of their intention to return to the system of coordinated launches and flights and warn each other to avoid a catastrophe. This is a policy of fear that leads to a policy of reason. Pre-emption and a constant classic hotline for prevention should always be present for any missile launches - this is the only thing that can save us from the war," the expert told Pravda.Ru. It is worthy of note that Russia had preliminary coordinated the flights of its Caliber missiles over the territories of Iran and Iraq when Russia was striking terrorists in Syria from the south-western area of the Caspian Sea.Pravda.Ru Read article on the Russian version of Pravda.Ru...
