Russia must set borders in oil-rich Arctic: Medvedev
Patrushev added that Russia should control the Northern Sea Route, a passage that stretches from Asia to Europe across northern Russia that is expected to become safer and less ice-bound with global warming.
"The Northern Sea Route is very important.... We should control all of it, while understanding that international shipping will use it and they should feel at ease," he said.

Undoubtedly this will have big implications on Russia's naval developments.

Regarding their naval buildup, I wonder if more Delta IIIs will be returned from reserve to active duty?

According to the site, 7 are now in reserve, and 4 were reactivated so far.

Meanwhile, Delta-IV (no numbers given) will coduct BM launches to ranges in Kamchatka from Bering and Okhotsk Seas.

Yep, the Bulava has launched successfully from the Dmitriky Donskoy. Most likely once the Dolgorukiy undergoes some extensive sea trials, it will also be armed with Bulava and tested later this year.

There is some confusion though. Lenta.ru reported that it was the Dolgorukiy that made the launch, while russianforces.org claimed it was the Dmitriy Donskoy. The latter is more likely as the Dmitriy Donskoy is the current testbed for the Bulava.

Question

Now it's official:
Quote:
"A new-generation Bulava ballistic missile was successfully fired from the White Sea to the Kura testing site in Kamchatka" in Russia's far east, the Russian navy said in a statement.
The Bulava, which the statement said was fired by the Dmitry Donskoi nuclear submarine off the northwest coast of Russia, can be equipped with up to 10 individually targeted nuclear warheads.

Actually, the Delta SSBNs were the first multi-functional submarines- the torpedoes they carried were SUBROC type.
I wonder if the Oscars will be given some LACMs?

It looks like the second Neustrashimy class frigate, the Yaroslav Mudry, will be delivered to the Russian navy in 2009. It will be assigned to the Baltic Fleet.

It doesnt look stealthy as the new corvette they are putting into service. Is this an older project?

Laid down in '88, as it says in the link. First unit was commissioned in '93.

To some extent a contemporary counterpart to the European M-Class/F123/Type 23 frigates, a multi-role ASW frigate with only limited AAW.

So far so good, the PtG task group will be making portvisits in the Mediterranean. First on the list is Tripoli.

Russian warships plan Mediterranean show of strength en route to Venezuela

MOSCOW Moscow says four warships carrying out the Russian navy's first deployment to the Western Hemisphere since the Cold War will make a side trip to the Mediterranean.

The nuclear-powered missile cruiser Peter the Great and three accompanying ships are expected to sail through the Strait of Gibraltar into the Mediterranean on Sunday.

Naval spokesman Capt. Igor Dygalo says the ships will call at the Libyan port of Tripoli and also visit several other unspecified Mediterranean ports before heading to Venezuela.

Russian news reports have said the squadron is expected to visit the Syrian port of Tartus, which hosted Soviet ships during the Cold War and now is being renovated for a permanent Russian naval presence in the Mediterranean.

So they are heading all the way inside to Tartus b4 going to venezuela? Thats alot more miles than a straight trip to the Carribean.


And regarding the Bulava SLBM, the latest test has been a sucess. And regarding to this report, its now clear why the problems they have been facing. Its not due to brain drain being a cause for their problems of making a new SLBM. The company never built SLBM's b4 for the Soviet Navy!.

If they are going through the Mediterranean on their way to Venezuela does that mean they will go through Suez and across the Pacific? or are they just taking a few detours on the way?

... why would they go through Suez enroute to Venezuela? Cross the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, at least half as long and you save costs for both Suez and Panama.

Lybia is less than a 200-nm detour on any route from the eastern Mediterranean to the West.
