Moscow: – The Russian Navy is fully prepared to protect Russia and Russian interests. The Navy can track it wherever the enemy is, underwater, on land or in the air. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that the Russian Navy will be able to ‘Strike hard at the enemy if necessary.’ Last month, Britain’s warship HMS Defender sailed near the Crimean marine limits. Tensions between Russia and Britain were high over the issue. Against this backdrop, Putin’s warning is striking.
On Sunday, marches were held in several areas, including St. Pittsburgh, to mark the 325th anniversary of the foundation of the Russian Navy. President Putin was present at the naval manoeuvres that took place this time. This time, he praised the capability and readiness of the Russian Navy and issued warnings to the enemy. The Russian president claimed that the Russian Navy had established its presence in most of its maritime areas. Putin testified that Russia had gained a foothold in the world’s leading navies on the strength of hypersonic missiles, nuclear submarines, and coastal defence systems.
