22 Russian Warships on Their Route to Syria

Posted on September 20, 2015 by tim


As is being reported in Russian media, there are currently over twenty Russian warships and battleships in the Mediterranean Sea. Most of these have already relocated to the Eastern end – close to where Syria is, and probably heading to that country. Here is the whole list and description of the armada in action.

First one is a Udaloy-class destroyer “Admiral Panteleev”. It was used in 2009 by Russian forces against Somali pirates. Then it was stationed in the Russian Pacific coast. Then, after the Syrian situation started getting worse, they ordered it to the Mediterranean.

A Neustrashimy-class frigate with the same name “Neustrashimy”. It came to the Mediterranean from the Gulf of Aden.

Ropucha II or “Admiral Nevelsky” .

A “Peresvet” ship. These are  “landing” ships – they carry soldiers on board and take them to wherever they need to be deploy, whenever they are needed.

Another landing ship “Azov”.

And another “Minsk”.

And one more – “Novocherkassk”. Lots of landing ships.

    I’m glad to see that Russia is helping Syria. Thank you President Putin blessings to you always.

      Rather than ‘helping’ Syria I think Russia is more interested in safeguarding its interests in the region. Syria bought a lot of military equipment from Russia (economic insentive) plus if the bastard Assad is ever removed from office, the Russians would want someone in his place that is Russia-friendly.

      Plus, of course, IS is a threat to the entire region and the world would be a better place without them.

      Not wanting to start a troll war here :)

    I don’t really see the point; the US and UK send their navies wherever they please, does Russia need permission to do the same? I don’t think so, no.
    The destination is no secret: Syria

    Some of these ships look a bit tired.

    • aldebaran says:

      well, not even US’ fleet is an 2010 and newer ships; is ZA fleet al less than 5 yo, if it has a fleet? Old, but they still can bleed a nose

    Good luck! As it looks Russia currently is the only one defending Europe. European politicians have lost their marbles…
