    Russia simulates airstrike on Ukraine Navy



    Russia’s REN TV showed a video of an airstrike on a decommissioned boat in the open sea in a blunt threat to apply the same force to the actual Ukrainian Navy warships once Kyiv attempts to regain control over its assets seized by Russia in the Black Sea as a result of Crimea occupation or attack vessels under the Russian flag.

    In a drill recorded on video, Russian air force’s Su-30 SM aircraft engaged a group target, a small missile boat earlier decommissioned by the Black Sea Fleet.

    The pilots trained maneuvering against anti-aircraft weapons, using means of electronic warfare and jamming before bombing the boat.

    As UNIAN reported earlier, Russian occupation forces continue to extract gas from the Black Sea deposits in the exclusive (maritime) economic zone of Ukraine, according to the State Border Guard Service.

    The national oil and gas holding Naftogaz of Ukraine has lodged a lawsuit against Russia with the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague (The Netherlands) demanding compensation of US$5 billion for damages the company suffered as a result of Russia's illegal seizure of its assets in Crimea, according to Naftogaz press service.

    During the Crimea operation in 2014, Russian troops also took over a number of Ukrainian off shore gas and oil rigs

    The rigs remain under Russian control, their companies use them now.

    Recently, the Ukrainian Navy (who are vastly outnumbered and outgunned by Russian Black Sea Fleet) started again running their mouth about how they can potentially defeat Russia with "Wolf Pack" tactics: The Ukrainian Navy want to use the tactics of «wolf pack» against the Russian ships

    This is the answer from Moscow: trying anything stupid, and we'll blow your ass to smithereens.

    And these are two nations who are related by blood too... Shit...

    They lost many of their good ships with Crimea...

    They now have a frigate as their flagship; plus a couple landing ships; and a bunch of small cutters and such.
