I might as well read that from infowars.com.
So what makes it official?

Are you aware that Russia's only foreign naval base is in Syria and that it has been there for over 50 years? So it makes sense that Russia will send ships there.

Nothing is going to hit the fan. More fear mongering and paranoia. The Russians have routinely deployed vessels into the Mediterranean. Remember earlier this year the Russian Aircraft Carrier and its accompanying Task Force? Remember all the claims on ATS of WW3 and things going to hit the fan during that deployment?

Press release on this recent planned deployment.


Russian warships are sent to Syria Northern Fleet (NF) destroyer Admiral Chabanenko and three Russian amphibious assault ships left NF Main Base Severomorsk on July 10. The high official from Russian Ministry of Defence told Central Navy Portal. Three amphibious assault ships transport Marine Corps submits on-board. Baltic Fleet guard frigat Yaroslav Mudry and auxiliary ships, based in Baltiysk, will join Admiral Chabanenko later. According to information available to Central Navy Portal, naval ships move into the Mediterranean Sea, into Syria water area. À crew member from one of the ships confirmed the information. He also noticed, that the three-months mission in the Mediterranean Sea for Admiral Chabanenko and three Russain amphibious assault ships was planned in advance. Recall that in 2012 Russian warships called at Tartus port many times. To replenish supplies, destroyer Admiral Chabanenko, frigate Ladny, and tanker Lena, being deployed with the Russian Navy's carrier group in the Mediterranean, visited the port in Jan 2012. Aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov and rescue tug Nikolai Chiker were anchored off the Tartus port then

Hello Crippler, ATS Readers, Writers,

This is NOT more fear mongering. It is Russia trying to "check" the Syria war push by NATO and the UN..

Putin stated a few months ago that they were getting tired of all the BULLS**T when he spoke at some economic meeting in Berlin...

For anyone to think the Russians are "just bluffing" is a wreckless fool.........

Despite Russia and China saying NO to more sanctions, and/or a NO FLY ZONE... Nato and Hillary make sounds like they might wack Syria anyhow...hmm what gall eh?

Hitler thought his poop didnt stink too til he went into Poland and then all turned to poop on him.,.war was declared by the nation he did NOT want to go to war with, the UK..

It is a very sick and serious game of who has the most toys in the warbox..and who is willing to use them..

The USA has been so villified, (Rightly or wrongly it matters not), that many nations would LOVE to join a coalition AGAINST the Nato and the west..

Frankly they are all S**T full of war after 12 years or so... with NO END IN SIGHT. ONLY more nations on the list to destroy or control via another bought puppet.. Iran, Syria, North Korea, Pakistan??...

Some leaders are saying, and rightly so, enough is enough..

You are living in a fantasy land. Russia is not going to war or engage in conflict to assist Assad. They have in place contingency plans to evacuate Russian citizens and also to exercise. In order to do so they have to practice such a contingency.

The following Russian Navy vessels passed through the Bosphorus.

11 July

Destroyer Smetlivy = Call sign RFH70

10th July

Caesar Kunikov (Amphibious Landing Ship) = Call sign RGZ58
Nikolay Filchenkov (Amphibious Landing Ship)
Shakhtar Tug
SB-5 Okhtenskiy Class Tug


Citing Greek military sources, Greek media reported on Tuesday, that four Russian warships are sailing through the Aegean Sea to the Eastern Mediterranean. Two amphibious ships from the Russian Black Sea Fleet, the CAESAR KUNIKOV and the NIKOLAI FILCHENKOV, and two tug-boats SHAKHTAR and OKHTENSKY passed through the Turkish Straits this morning and were currently south of the Imvros Island. According to Greek defencenet.gr portal, the Russian ships will be sailing the Aegean Sea and are expected to exit Greek waters in the dawn of Wednesday via the Karpathos-Rhodes strait.

The Russian Navy vessels are transmitting in Morse Code. The only one currently transmitting weather bulletins every six hours is RCJE which will be one of the Auxiliary vessels. Think about it if they are going to war or conflict they are not going to be giving away their position by constantly transmitting Morse and sending weather bulletins. I can pick their transmission up here in the UK.

8345 Kilohertz.

RCV = Sevastopol
RCJE = Auxiliary Russian Navy Ship

^ And the US can pick up their postion down to the meter via GPS-they dont have to listen to broadcasted radio signals to know where those ships are-this sint 1950 LOL. I also imagine the US is trailing those bad boys via sub as well.

US Reaction: The first official reaction of the U.S. authorities was diplomatic and calm. "We have received information about the mission of the ships, we've also heard the Russian authorities saying that the ships would call at Tartus for refueling and that their mission was not connected with the Syrian conflict. We hope it's true ... We are in touch with the Russian side on this issue," State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said.

Erin Pelton, a spokeswoman of the U.S. National Security Council reminded reporters that Russia had is a point of technical servicing in Tartus. "We do not see any reason to believe this campaign is something extraordinary.

All transmissions will be routinely intercepted. It won't just be the US that is monitoring every electronic squeak that they make. Everything from routine navigation radars all the way through all the various radio transmissions will be collected. All the NATO signals intelligence sites in the region will be monitoring and sharing the information. If anything it is good practice procedures for the direction finding and intelligence analysts!

The Russian Navy still use a lot of Morse Code and during such peacetime transits such as this deployment openly transmit Morse Code references to activate voice and data links. They transmit the frequencies in Morse in the clear and the recipient ship-shore station transmits/receives according to the information received.

Last night I picked up the Landing ship Kunikov (Morse Call sign RGZ58) setting up a voice link with one of the supporting Tugs via Morse Code. (Call sign RCJE)

8345 Khz

RGZ58 DE RCJE QDW QSU 1 5310 K

The two ships then worked 5310 Kilohertz in clear voice communications.

12464 Kilohertz, 12 July, 1246 GMT

Here is the latest Morse Code weather transmission from likely one of the Tugs (RCJE).

RCV DE RCJE 239 19 12 1600 239 BT SML FOR RJH45 RJE73 BT
12121 99353 10279 41998 02905 10300 40079 54002 70200 80000 22232 00220 29901 332// 88000 12015 BT AR RCJE K

The code is standard international weather observation at sea and can be broke down at the following link.

www.vos.noaa.gov...

It contains positional and course information and easy pickings for those intelligence agencies monitoring the deployment. Also this is proof of a peacetime deployment and not the start of WW3 as some on here seem to think. The Russians wouldn't be sending such open transmissions if the deployment wasn't peacetime operations.

From the link posted above the positional information is easily decoded.

If I remember correctly Russia was sending ships to Syria for "naval excersises" nothing more.

Russian Navy Command explained warships sending to the Mediterranean Sea.

The warships group from Russia's Northern, Baltic and Black Sea Fleets, sending to the Mediterranean Sea, will hold an exercise there, Interfax reports referring to the Russian Naval General Staff. In particular, the warships group will drill company sailing under the sole command, antiaircraft and anti-submarine defence, anti-piracy protection of civil and commercial vessels.

As part of manoeuvres every warship will carry Marine Corps personnel, the General Staff spokesman said. According to him, the main goal of the campaign is not a call in the Syrian port Tartus. As expected, only support and auxiliary ships will visit Tartus for replenishment. As to warships, they will be sent there if the technological necessity appears.

The flagman of the group is Admiral Chabanenko, a Project 11551 large antisubmarine warfare ship of the Northern Fleet. All the warships will join forces a week later in the the Mediterranean Sea. Recall, reportedly by Central Navy Portal, Admiral Chabanenko and three Russian amphibious assault ships left NF Main Base Severomorsk on July 10. Three amphibious assault ships transport Marine Corps submits on-board. Baltic Fleet guard frigat Yaroslav Mudry and auxiliary ships, based in Baltiysk, will join Admiral Chabanenko later.

Later the unnamed source from the Russian Ministry of Defense told that "the program of the voyage includes a call in the Syrian port of Tartus". According to Interfax, the source insisted that the deployment was not linked to the escalation of the situation in Syria. "In Tartus the ships are going to top up on supplies of fuel, water and foodstuffs," the source said, adding that their deployment in the Mediterranean would last until the end of September.

Also the Russian Navy representative informed RIA Novosti that the warships group from Russia's Northern, Baltic and Black Sea Fleets was preparing for drilling in the Atlantic ocean as well as in the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea.

As reported, the group will include: - Admiral Chabanenko, a Project 11551 large antisubmarine warfare ship; Alexander Otrakovsky, Georgy Pobedonosets and Kondopoga, Project 775 large landing ships; support ships - Nikolay Chiker, a Project Ð-5757 rescue tug, and Sergey Osipov, a Project 1559 petrol carrier, from the Northern Fleet; - Yaroslav Mudry, a Project 11540 guardian frigate and Lene, a Project 577 petrol carrier from the Baltic Fleet; - Smetlivy, a Project 01090 destroyer; Caesar Kunikov, a Project 775 large landing ship and Nikolai Filchenkov, a Project 1171 large landing ship, from the Black Sea Fleet.
