American Navy Sailors Visiting Sevastopol, Crimea in 1989

Posted on August 8, 2017 by tim


So when Gorbachev announced “perestroyka” (change) such visits became possible. Two American Navy ships USS Thomas S. Gates (CG-51) and USS Kauffman (FFG-59) arrived to previously “closed” city of Sevastopol – main base of Soviet and then Russian Navy at the Black Sea.

Sevastopol before was impossible to visit by American or any NATO ship. It was so important for Russian Navy that even after USSR collapse when Crimea became Ukrainian the Sevastopol continued to most of all Russian Black Sea fleet.

    Person to person meet and greet day. It looks like everyone had a good time….even got some snacks and souvenirs.

    While the people were busy with the sow brought to them by the US saboteur gorbachev he was in the mean time getting ready to expel Soviet generals and their families from their apartments in Berlin to the plains of Ukraine to live under the tents.

    Gorbacev is the second coming of Satan of the 20th century. Man was never trailed for destroying great CCCP and was the mastermind of the FIMACO affair.

      The people wanted cars and fridge….not a planned economy and long queues. With private enterprise some responsibility. Cradle to grave control causes stagnation and eventual defeat.
