Top Russian admiral slams Zelensky's plans to build two Ukrainian Black Sea Naval bases as 'no threat': 'even NATO won't use them'
RT.com 21 Oct, 2020 16:18
The former commander of Russia's Black Sea Fleet has accused Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky of “politicking" and showboating after Kiev announced it will build two naval bases on the strategically vital body of water.
Speaking to Moscow-based news agency NSN on Tuesday, Admiral Igor Kasatonov explained that the Ukrainian bases would be left unused, even by NATO, and therefore pose no threat to Russia.
“This is politicking,” Kasatonov claimed. “In strategic terms, they will not matter. And in operational terms too.”
In the 1990s, Kasatonov was well regarded in the Russian Navy, eventually reaching the post of first deputy commander-in-chief. Coming from a family of seamen, his father, Admiral Vladimir Kasatonov, was awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union, and has a frigate named after him.
The admiral was responding to an announcement by Zelensky, who told the Ukrainian Parliament that the country will start to build “two naval bases to protect the Black Sea region,” and revealed plans for military ships, such as the Hetman Sahaydachniy, to continue being upgraded.
According to the Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, Ukraine's desire to build two naval bases in the Black Sea may negatively affect stability in the region, and could be “potentially dangerous.”
The Black Sea is a highly contested territory, bordered by Russia, Ukraine, and Georgia, as well as NATO members Turkey, Romania, and Bulgaria. For Russia, the Black Sea has tremendous strategic importance, as it enables ships to enter the Mediterranean and toward the Atlantic Ocean from year-round warm-weather ports.
Earlier this month, Kiev agreed on a deal with London for 8 Barzan-class fast attack missile boats, worth £1.25 billion ($1.6 billion). The agreement between the two countries is due to provide a much-needed boost for the Ukrainian Navy, which lost a significant part of its capability following Crimea's reabsorption into Russia. With the loss of the Crimean port of Sevastopol, Kiev was stripped of most of its warships and naval infrastructure, as well as a large number of personnel, many of whom defected to Russia.

World’s largest & most powerful nuclear icebreaker joins Russia’s Arctic fleet.
RT.com 21 Oct, 2020 12:05
Russia’s newest nuclear-powered icebreaker, the Arktika, will start operating in the Arctic waters of the Northern Sea Route (NSR) in December after the vessel’s acceptance and delivery certificate was signed on Wednesday.
According to Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, who visited the flag-raising ceremony in Murmansk, the deployment of the nuclear-powered icebreaker fleet “will ensure Russia’s supremacy in the Arctic and facilitate further development of the Northern Sea Route as a crucial transport corridor.”
Russia is “the undisputed leader in the development of the northern territories,” said the prime minister, adding “We are proud that Russia is the only country in the world that was able to develop a nuclear icebreaker fleet. And now we are accepting another universal nuclear icebreaker, the Arktika… The icebreaker has innovative equipment, a powerful engine, which allows it to be used everywhere – in ice, deep water, and shallow trails.”
The Arktika completed its transit from St. Petersburg to its homeport in Murmansk on October 12. It covered about 4,900 nautical miles within 21 days, including around 1,030 miles sailing through the ice.
The planning of the lead icebreaker of Project 22220, the Arktika, started at the Baltiysky Zavod shipyard on November 5, 2013, with construction launched on June 16, 2016. In 2021, the vessel will be equipped with a new electric propulsion motor on the starboard side to raise the ship’s power capacity to 60 megawatts.
Project 22220 ships will be the world’s largest and most powerful nuclear-powered icebreakers. The vessels’ dual-draft concept allows for them to be operated both in the Arctic and in the mouths of the polar rivers. Two more nuclear-powered icebreakers under the project will be put into operation in the coming years.
The series of Project 22220 icebreakers will provide for year-round navigation in the western Arctic, which will make it possible to achieve the required level of cargo shipping along the Northern Sea Route.
While the Arktika is capable of breaking three-meter-thick ice, the new Leader-class icebreakers will be able to cut through a 4.3-meter-thick ice sheet, as well as staying at sea for eight months without entering a port. The new icebreakers will pack twice as much punch, boasting a 120-MWatt powerplant, double the power output of the Arktika.
The dimensions of the Leader-class icebreaker are impressive as well. The ship will be over 210 meters long – slightly less than two football pitches, and 47 meters tall, equal to a 13-story building.
Russia: World's largest nuclear-powered icebreaker officially enters full operation in Murmansk.
Ruptly Oct 22, 2020
The Arktika icebreaker has been fully commissioned at the port in Murmansk, and has officially joined the Russian nuclear fleet on Wednesday. The ceremony was attended by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and Rosatom CEO Alexey Likhachev.
The ship, made under Project 22220, is the world's most powerful icebreaker in its field. In total, Russia is going to develop four more icebreakers like Arktika by 2026, namely "Siberia", "Ural", "Yakutia" and "Chukotka".
The commissioning of new vessels made on the same project 22220 will ensure a steady increase in cargo traffic along the Northern sea route. The "Arktika" will replace the Soviet-era icebreakers and allow to conduct trade caravans in the Western direction, as well as tow vessels.
The massive icebreaker is 173.3 metres long and 34 metres wide, and its maximum displacement is 33.5 thousand tons. It is equipped with the innovative water nuclear reactor RITM-200, which has no analogues in the world, generating up to 350MW of electricity. The "Arktika" crew consists of 52 people at the moment.
The icebreaker will be launched in the waters of the Northern sea in December.
