Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company - Corporate video
 
12:21
Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company is the largest and oldest shipping company on the Caspian Sea. The history of the shipping industry of Azerbaijan on the Caspian Sea dates back to the middle of 19th century when first vessels were constructed and put into operation. Azerbaijan State Shipping Company was established in 1858 as "Caucasus and Mercury JSC". During 19th and 20th centuries it was the largest shipping company on the Caspian sea, transporting both crude oil and dry cargos among all the Caspian Sea countries. While operations of Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company were not limited to the Caspian Sea, vessels under the Azerbaijan flag were also operating in the Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea and Mexican gulf. Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company in its current state was created by the Presidential order on 22 October 2013. According to the Presidential decree two state-owned entities: 1. Azerbaijan State Caspian Shipping Company which was mainly involved in cargo shipping and 2. Caspian Sea Oil Fleet offshore service operation division of the SOCAR were merged and Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company was created. Two companies were merged with the primary objective to increase capacity and expand operations, and get synergies from centralized management of state-owned shipping companies.
Worlds MOST POWERFUL Military Naval Fleet in Caspian Sea
 
10:15
A navy or maritime force is a fleet of waterborne military vessels (watercraft) and its associated naval aviation, both sea-based and land-based. It is the branch of a nation's armed forces principally designated for naval and amphibious warfare; namely, lake-borne, riverine, littoral, or ocean-borne combat operations and related functions. It includes anything conducted by surface ships, amphibious ships, submarines, and seaborne aviation, as well as ancillary support, communications, training, and other fields; recent developments have included space-related operations. The strategic offensive role of a navy is projection of force into areas beyond a country's shores (for example, to protect sea-lanes, ferry troops, or attack other navies, ports, or shore installations). The strategic defensive purpose of a navy is to frustrate seaborne projection-of-force by enemies. The strategic task of the navy also may incorporate nuclear deterrence by use of Submarine-launched ballistic missiles. Naval operations can be broadly divided between riverine and littoral applications (brown-water navy), open-ocean applications (blue-water navy), and something in between (green-water navy), although these distinctions are more about strategic scope than tactical or operational division. In most nations, the term "naval", as opposed to "navy", is interpreted as encompassing all maritime military forces, e.g., navy, marine / marine corps, and coast guard forces. Etymology and meanings[edit] First attested in English in the early 14th century,[1] the word "navy" came via Old French navie, "fleet of ships", from the Latin navigium, "a vessel, a ship, bark, boat",[2] from navis, "ship".[3] The word "naval" came from Latin navalis, "pertaining to ship";[4] cf. Greek ναῦς (naus), "ship",[5] ναύτης (nautes), "seaman, sailor".[6] The earliest attested form of the word is in the Mycenaean Greek compound word 𐀙𐀄𐀈𐀗, na-u-do-mo (*naudomoi), "shipbuilders", written in Linear B syllabic script.[n 1] The word formerly denoted fleets of both commercial and military nature. In modern usage "navy" used alone always denotes a military fleet, although the term "merchant navy" for a commercial fleet still incorporates the non-military word sense. This overlap in word senses between commercial and military fleets grew out of the inherently dual-use nature of fleets; centuries ago, nationality was a trait that unified a fleet across both civilian and military uses. Although nationality of commercial vessels has little importance in peacetime trade other than for tax avoidance, it can have greater meaning during wartime, when supply chains become matters of patriotic attack and defense, and when in some cases private vessels are even temporarily converted to military vessels. The latter was especially important, and common, before 20th-century military technology existed, when merely adding artillery and naval infantry to any sailing vessel could render it fully as martial as any military-owned vessel. Such privateering has been rendered obsolete in blue-water strategy since modern missile and aircraft systems grew to leapfrog over artillery and infantry in many respects; but privateering nevertheless remains potentially relevant in littoral warfare of a limited and asymmetric nature. History Naval warfare developed when humans first fought from water-borne vessels. Prior to the introduction of the cannon and ships with sufficient capacity to carry the large guns, navy warfare primarily involved ramming and boarding actions. In the time of ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, naval warfare centered on long, narrow vessels powered by banks of oarsmen (such as triremes and quinqueremes) designed to ram and sink enemy vessels or come alongside the enemy vessel so its occupants could be attacked hand-to-hand. Naval warfare continued in this vein through the Middle Ages until the cannon became commonplace and capable of being reloaded quickly enough to be reused in the same battle. The Chola Dynasty of medieval India was known as one of the greatest naval powers of its time from 300 BC to 1279 AD. The Chola Navy, Chola kadarpadai comprised the naval forces of the Chola Empire along with several other Naval-arms of the country. The Chola navy played a vital role in the expansion of the Chola Tamil kingdom, including the conquest of the Sri Lanka islands, Kadaaram (Present day Burma), Sri Vijaya (present day Southeast Asia), the spread of Hinduism, Tamil architecture and Tamil culture to Southeast Asia and in curbing the piracy in Southeast Asia in 900 CE. In ancient China, large naval battles were known since the Qin Dynasty (also see Battle of Red Cliffs, 208), employing the war junk during the Han Dynasty. However, China's first official standing navy was not established until the Southern Song dynasty in the 12th century, a time when gunpowder was a revolutionary new application to warfare. he mass and deck space required

There is remarkable similarity between the Volga-Don and a typical busy highway. The waterways of the Volga-Don basin are some of the most overstretched shipping waterways. Forty vessels pass through the locks every day. The canal’s design carrying capacity of 10.5 million tonnes per year has virtually been exceeded. There is an obvious need to build a second Volga-Don channel. Building of the second Volga-Don channel corresponds to demands for an innovative course of growth for the Russian economy and corresponds to global worldwide trends.
Unusual Aircraft - Ekranoplan the Leviathan
 
03:26
Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... Designers around the world are trying to build radical new aircraft, at this secret airbase outside Moscow, Russian engineers created what looked more like a flying saucer than a plane. Called "Tarelka”, it was conceived during the height of the Cold War. This early secret footage shows the first scale model tests. Despite their methods being low-tech the results were remarkable. It looked impossible but the Tarelka flew. Initial tests were so successful that construction began on a full size Tarelka. Looking like a craft from another planet, it could carry up to a dozen passengers, and possibly become the new executive jet of the future. The engines are housed inside the main body. The small wings provide no lift at all, they help stabilise and steer the machine. But shortage of money from the Russian government caused work to stop on the Tarelka. A waterborne version was also tested, it was designed to travel just above the surface of the water using a cushion of air to provide lift for very little thrust. This is called ground effect, something Russian designers had used in their most unusual aircraft. The Lun-class Ekranoplan, also known as the Caspian Sea Monster, is a ground effect vehicle designed by Rostislav Evgenievich Alexeev and used by the Soviet and Russian navies from 1987 until the late 1990s. Larger than jumbo jet, this astonishing machine is powered by eight huge turbofan jet engines. It flew using the lift generated by the ground effect of its large wings when close to the surface of the water. Although they might look similar and have related technical characteristics, Ekranoplans like the Lun are not aircraft, seaplanes, hovercraft, or hydrofoils. Ground effect is a separate technology altogether. The International Maritime Organization classifies these vehicles as maritime ships.

13 Crazy Persian Gulf Events
 
07:51
From discovering artifacts in the sea from an ancient Persian dynasty to even coming across a mysterious sea creature in water! 8. Drinking Water A widespread shortage of water in Iran in recent years has led their government to look to the Persian Gulf for a solution. The Minister of Power recently announced a project whose goal is to provide drinking water for 45 million people in 17 provinces of the region. General decline in precipitation and years of water mismanagement have led to this water crisis that has become a top priority for Iran’s government. 7. The MV Dara Sinks The Gulf’s biggest maritime tragedy in peacetime took place on the MV Dara more than half a century ago. The Dara was a passenger liner that took off with 700 passengers and crew from Bombay. While sailing the Persian Gulf a giant explosion ripped through the ship, causing a fire that would last for two days before the vessel would finally sink to the bottom of the Gulf. The disaster claimed 238 lives. A survivor, who published an account of the incident, describes the sound of the wind tearing through the ship being drowned out by the sound of human screams and says that those screams have haunted him his whole life. 6. Iran’s Suez Canal This hasn’t been built yet, but if it ever does it will be a huge deal. Iran is planning to construct an artificial canal linking the Caspian Sea to the Persian Gulf. The ambitious project faces a ton of hurdles, but it is expected to be commissioned sometime in the 2020’s. Issues to overcome include the cost of the project, the many different countries that would have to be involved and the difference in elevation between the Iranian regions that would have to be connected. It is a project that has been discussed since the 1980’s and would be extremely beneficial to the regions in the area, especially Iran. 5. Nowruz Oil Field Spill The Gulf War oil spill is infamous thanks to the fact that it was both the biggest oil spill ever and that it was done intentionally. Historically it overshadows another big oil spill that also occurred in the Persian Gulf. On February 10, 1983 a tanker collided with a platform at the Nowruz Oil Field, causing a spill of approximately 1,500 barrels daily. The well was left uncapped for over 7 months because it was in the middle of the Iran/ Iraq war zone. Finally the well was capped by the Iranians on September 18,1983 in an operation that would claim 11 lives. 4. Unknown Creature Surfaces People ran wild with speculation when this and several other photos surfaced in July of 2013. An Iranian vessel discovered this unknown creature floating around in the Persian Gulf. The vessel was unable to haul the giant carcass back to land so we will never know for sure what it was. While some claimed it could have been the loch ness monster, it was more than likely, a whale carcass. 3. U.S. Boats Seized In January of this year two United States Navy riverine command boats and their crews were seized by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy for wandering into Iranian territorial water. The issue was quickly resolved and the fleet was released after 15 hours. It comes amid a string of recent incidents between the two navies in the Persian Gulf. In late August, four of Iran’s ships got dangerously close to a U.S. destroyer traveling at high speeds. The U.S. ships fired off 10 flares before the approaching vessels finally veered off course. The U.S. called the incident unsafe and unprofessional. 2. USS Stark Incident An Iraqi jet aircraft fired missiles at the USS Stark on May 17 1987, killing 37 of its crew and injuring an additional 21. The incident took place amidst the Iran- Iraq war and analysis of the incident revealed that the crew was partly to blame as they failed to warn the Iraqi jet that it was approaching a United States vessel. The remaining crew spent the night of the incident and the following day fighting a fire on the ship and the vessel was eventually able to make it back to land under her own power. 1. Gulf War Oil Spill Iraqi forces purposefully opened valves at the Sea Island oil terminal and dumped millions of barrels of oil into the Persian Gulf at the end of January 1991. The incident was a wartime move against U.S. forces and remains the largest oil spill in history to this day. People who witnessed the spill explain that it is hard to describe the amount of oil in the water. While the Persian Gulf was shockingly resilient to the large amount of oil in her waters it still devastated marine wildlife and coastal habitats in the Gulf.

BLACK SEA ( DARK SIDE OF BLACK SEA: SEAFARING IN SUBSTANDARD VESSELS)
 
57:01
Subtitle Options : English / Russian / Rumanian The Black Sea is known with its holiday resorts, pretty fishing boats and people. But, for seafarers, it has not been associated with these beauties for a long time. For centuries the Black Sea has been witnessing an active maritime commerce between surrounding countries and communities. But today, it has turned into a nightmare for seafarers. For them the Black Sea means low wages, old vessels and severe working conditions accompanied by fatal marine accidents. Those seafarers from different countries of Black Sea, are trying to earn their living and look after their families under such bad conditions. They endure the hardships of their job in order to provide a better life for their yearning families. They try to survive in the vessels that are left to their fate without any payment for months, without fuel and provision. Delayed or unpaid wages, hard work, bad living conditions, ignored safety rules have just become a routine. And to make matters worse, seafarers in despair have to pay manning agents to find a job. “The Sea of Shame” is a term that sums up these severe conditions in the Black Sea. This documentary has been completed in one year. We are grateful to all those who supported us and put their labour in it. "BLACKSEA" ТЕМНАЯ СТОРОНА ЧЕРНОГО МОРЯ: МОРСКОЕ СУДОХОДСТВО НА СУБСТАНДАРТНЫХ СУДАХ «Черное море с характерными для него курортными поселками, милыми рыбацкими лодками и местным населением. Однако вот уже долгое время рыбаки и не вспоминают обо всех этих прелестях. Черное море, являющееся центром оживленной морской торговли между прилегающими странами и обществами, сегодня превратилось в кошмар для моряков. Низкая оплата, устаревшие суда, тяжелые условия труда и несчастные случаи со смертельным исходом. Моряки из различных стран Черноморского региона работают в этих плачевных условиях, пытаясь прокормить свои семьи. Они сопротивляются трудностям и испытывают всю горечь своей профессии лишь для того, чтобы предоставить лучшие условиях жизни своим семьям, ждущим их возвращения. Работая на судах, оставленных судовладельцами на произвол судьбы, не получая месяцами ни гроша, без горючего и провианта пытаются остаться в живых. Запоздалая оплата, или вообще ее отсутствие, тяжелые условия труда, проживания на судне и пренебрежение правилами безопасности стали нормальным явлением. И, к сожалению, не имея другого выхода, моряки даже при таких условиях вынуждены идти к посреднику, чтобы устроиться на работу. «Море Позора» является выражением, четко характеризующим тяжесть положения Черного моря.

Arcticaborg (Арктикаборг) icebreaker platform supply vessel Wagenborg Kazakhstan Caspian Sea
 
00:27
Arcticaborg (Арктикаборг) is an icebreaker platform supply vessel operated by Wagenborg Kazakhstan in the Caspian Sea. She and her sister ship, Antarcticaborg (Антарктикаборг), were built by Kværner Masa-Yards in Helsinki, Finland, in 1998. They are the first full developments of the double acting ship concept and among the first icebreakers equipped with Azipods, electric azimuth thrusters manufactured by ABB. General characteristics The 2,043-ton Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg are 65.10 metres (213.6 ft) long and have a beam of 16.40 metres (53.8 ft). Designed to operate in shallow waters with a maximum depth of 5 metres (16 ft), their maximum operating draught is only 2.90 metres (9.5 ft). Furthermore, their main dimensions are limited by the Russian inland waterways, which had to be used to transport the ships to the Caspian Sea.[4] The gross tonnage of Arcticaborg and her sister ship are 1,453, net tonnage 454, and deadweight tonnage 675 tons.[2][5] The ships are served by a crew of 12 and have accommodation for 20.[6] Being supply ships, Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg are equipped to carry a wide range of goods needed on the offshore platform. Each ship has a 350 m2 (3,800 sq ft) open aft decks for dry cargos and a cargo hold which has a hatch large enough the fit a twenty-foot container. For powderized goods such as cement and barite, they have five storage silos with a combined capacity of 51 m3 (1,800 cu ft). Furthermore, the ships have cargo tanks for 48 m3 (1,700 cu ft) of liquid drilling mud, 363 m3 (12,800 cu ft) of fuel, and 278 m3 (9,800 cu ft) of fresh water. On their way back from the platform, Arcticaborg and her sister ship can carry 67 m3 (2,400 cu ft) of sewage and wastewater.[6] They are also equipped for firefighting, pollution control and rescue operations, and has towing and anchor handling equipment.[5] The ships are classified by Russian Maritime Register of Shipping with ice class UL, equivalent to the highest Finnish-Swedish ice class, 1A Super.[2][6] However, the actual level of ice strengthening far exceeds the requirements of the ice class notations.[4] Power and propulsion Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg have a diesel-electric powertrain with two six-cylinder Wärtsilä 6L26 4-stroke medium-speed diesel engines, each with a maximum continuous rating of 1,950 kilowatts (2,610 hp), driving van Kaick DGS generators rated 2,250 kVA at 690 V. According to the power plant principle, the main generators in the forward engine room provide electrical power for all shipboard consumers, including propulsion. For emergency and harbour use the ships also have Valmet 612 diesel engines, rated at 130 kilowatts (170 hp), coupled to 163 kVA alternators. The vessels are propelled by two ABB Azipod VI1100A electric azimuth thrusters rated at 1,620 kW each.[7] Arcticaborg and her sister ship were among the first icebreakers fitted with Azipod units that allow the ships to operate astern in heavy ice conditions with excellent maneuverability. In addition the ships have one 150 kW bow thruster for harbour operations.[5] Arcticaborg and her sister ship are one of the few ships capable of operating in the harsh ice conditions of the shallow Caspian Sea oil fields. They are able to break level ice up to 60 centimetres (24 in) thick at 3 knots (5.6 km/h; 3.5 mph) when moving ahead.[6] However, the bow is designed with good seakeeping and open water characteristics in mind, and in heavy ice conditions the ships are turned around and operated stern first. In such way, their icebreaking capability increases to 1 metre (3.3 ft) of level ice. More importantly, by allowing the Azipod units to mill and crush the ice, Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg are able to penetrate ice ridges that are thicker than the draught of the ship and sometimes reach the seabed without having to rely on backing and ramming.[5][4] Their service speed in open water is 13 knots (24 km/h; 15 mph) and bollard pull 32 tons.[6] In addition to the four Azipod units installed on the ships ABB delivered a fifth spare unit, which allows the company to carry out a complete overhaul for all propulsors, one at a time, without having to dock the ships for extended periods.[8] Career Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg were ordered from Kværner Masa-Yards Helsinki New Shipyard in December 1997 following extensive research and model testing at the company's Arctic Technology Centre, nowadays known as Aker Arctic.[5] Constructed in the covered dry dock at the same time, both ships were delivered to Wagenborg Kazakhstan BV, a subsidiary of the Dutch shipping company Wagenborg, within a week in October 1998 and sailed from Finland through the Mediterranean to the Black Sea and finally to the Caspian Sea RIMG0728

December 5, 2017 (Persian calendar 1396/9/14) Gilan province (استان گيلان) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guilan_Province Anzali port (بندر انزلي) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar-e_Anzali A new domestically built missile-launching warship has formally joined Iran’s naval fleet in the Caspian Sea, with the Iranian defense chief describing the vessel as the “symbol of peace at sea.” The Separ (Shield سپر) warship was unveiled and delivered to the naval forces during a ceremony held on Tuesday in the northern Iranian port city of Bandar-e Anzali بندر انزلي, with Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami سرتيپ امير حاتمي and Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi دريابان حسين خانزادي in attendance. The vessel is 47 meters long (154 feet) and 3.9 meters high (12 feet), and has a cruising speed of 35 knots (over 64 kilometers per hour). The warship is equipped with different kinds of advanced weapons, including surface-to-surface missile systems, 76 mm and 40 mm artillery and an Iran made fire control radar capable of detecting warships and cruise missiles. Speaking at the event, Hatami said the “all-Iranian” warship has successfully passed all testing stages, adding that the achievement is Iran’s “symbol of peace at sea.” He further conveyed the Islamic Republic’s “message of peace and friendship” to all regional states, expressing hope that the country’s defense progress could help strengthen peace in the region. Hatami also expressed Iran’s readiness to expand its defense cooperation with its neighbors, expressing hope that such joint efforts will protect the security of the region and its nations.

Breaking News - Caspian Sea deal may end long-held claims
 
06:31
Caspian Sea: Five countries sign deal to end dispute It is a landmark deal that has been more than two decades in the making. Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan - all bordering the Caspian Sea - have agreed in principle on how to divide it up. Their leaders signed theConvention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea in the Kazakh city of Aktau on Sunday.It establishes a formula for dividing up its resources and prevents other powers from setting up a military presence there.It is an important step in the easing of regional tensions, but the deal over the world's largest inland body of water matters for several reasons. Here's what you need to know about the hotly disputed Caspian Sea.1. Its legal status has been complicatedIt would be reasonable to assume that the Caspian Sea is, well, a sea. But at the heart of this long-running dispute is whether or not the 370,000 sq km (143,000 sq mile) body of landlocked water should be considered a lake.Until the dissolution of the Soviet Union (USSR), that's what it was known as and shared between the USSR and Iran.But the arrival into the scene of new countries that split from the USSR complicated this issue, with ensuing claim and counterclaim. Even Russia at times argued it was a sea and not a lake. Why is the difference so important?If it is treated as a sea, then it would be covered by international maritime law, namely the United Nations Law of the Sea.This binding document sets rules on how countries can use the world's oceans. It covers areas such as the management of natural resources, territorial rights, and the environment. And it is not limited to littoral states, meaning others can seek access to its resources.But if it is defined as a lake, then it would have to be divided between all five countries - and a formula about who gets what is not the easiest of equations to solve. For instance, some countries, such as Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, established an early claim over large areas of the Five countries agree to share resources of the Caspian Sea after more than two decades of dispute.

Iran Naval drill in Caspian sea code named Sustainable Security & Power 96, final stage
 
03:20
July 6, 2017 (Persian calendar 1396/4/15) The Iranian Navy wrapped up a massive naval war game in the Caspian Sea on Thursday with parades in the presence of ranking military commanders and officials. Code-named “Sustainable Security and Power 96”, the exercise began on July 2 and came to an end today with a naval parade involving various watercraft and naval units. The war game covered an area of 80,000 square kilometers in the Caspian Sea, and involved a whole range of military vessels, commando units, divers, rescue and relief teams, electronic warfare units, radar stations, airborne units, fighter jets and sea-based drones. Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari دريابان حبيب الله سياري and Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani سخنگوي مجلس علي لاريجاني were among the figures who watched the naval forces on parade at the conclusion of the drill. For the first time in the history of Caspian drills, ‘Damavand دماوند’ homegrown destroyer was used in a war game after taking part in several operations and overseas trips. Employed as the command ship of the war game, Damavand was accompanied by Peykan-class corvettes, Qaem-class frigates armed with naval guns, and assault speedboats. The purposes of the maneuver included practicing tactics to ensure sustainable security in the Caspian Sea, announcement of Iran’s readiness for cooperation with other Caspian states, sending the message of peace and friendship, as well as testing and evaluating the new weapons and military systems mounted on the naval vessels.

Iran Nany Damavand & Derafsh Vessels mooring in Russia Makhachkala port
 
03:53
March 10, 2017 (Persian calendar 1395/12/20) A flotilla of Iranian warships has left the country’s northern territorial waters for Russia in a bid to convey the Islamic Republic’s message of peace and friendship. The naval fleet, comprised of the domestically-manufactured Damavand دماوند frigate and a missile-launching frigate, dubbed Derafsh درفش, set sail for Makhachkala, the capital city of the Republic of Dagestan, in Russia on Tuesday. The flotilla is the fourth fleet dispatched by the Iranian Navy in its northern waters. The Navy has previously sent three fleets to Russia and one to Azerbaijan. The commander of Iran's fleet of warships in the northern province of Gilan گيلان, Admiral Ahmad Reza Baqeri احمدرضا باقري, said the fleet’s voyage would last for one week and it would stay in Makhachkala for three days. He added that the trip is aimed at strengthening cooperation on upholding security in the Caspian Sea and meeting with senior Russian naval officials. Makhachkala is located on the western shore of the Caspian Sea. Late last month, Iranian naval forces launched the final stage of a large-scale drill north of the Indian Ocean to enhance their defense capabilities. Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari دريابان حبيب الله سياري announced the beginning of the maneuver, code-named Velayat 95, on February 26. "The aim of the Velayat 95 drill is to upgrade the country's defensive capabilities and send Iran's message of peace and friendship to the regional countries," the Navy chief said aboard the Sahand warship ناوشكن سهند. In recent years, Iran’s Navy has also increased its presence in international waters to protect naval routes and provide security for merchant vessels and tankers. In line with international efforts against piracy, the Iranian Navy has been conducting patrols in the Gulf of Aden خليج عدن since November 2008, safeguarding merchant containers and oil tankers owned or leased by Iran or other countries. Iran’s Navy has managed to foil several attacks on both Iranian and foreign tankers during its missions in international waters.

Crisis in Ukraine : Russia Extends its Control over the Black Sea and Strategic Waterways
 
10:03
Crisis in Ukraine: Russia Extends its Control over the Black Sea and Strategic Waterways On May 15, President Vladimir Putin took part in the opening ceremony of the Crimean Bridge – “a super 19-kilometre-long construction” linking Crimea to Russia’s Krasnodar region. This bridge is strategic and broader the economic and geopolitical implications in the region. The decision of Crimea to join the Russian Federation has strategic and geopolitical implications. The union of Crimea with Russia redefines both the geography as well as the geopolitical chessboard in the Black Sea basin. It constitutes a major setback for US-NATO, whose longstanding objective has been to integrate Ukraine into NATO with a view to undermining Russia, while extending Western military presence in the Black Sea basin. With the March 18, 2014 Treaty signed between Russia and Crimea, the Russian Federation will extend its control over the Black Sea as well over the Sea of Azov, the West coastline of which borders on Eastern Ukraine and the Donesk region. Under the agreement between Russia and Crimea announced by president Putin, two “constituent regions” of Crimea will join the Russian Federation: the “Republic of Crimea” and the “City of Sevastopol”. Both will have the status of “autonomous regions”. The status of Sevastopol as an autonomous entity separate from Crimea is related to the location of Russia’s Naval base in Sevastopol. Since the break-up of the Soviet Union, Russia retained its naval base in Sevastopol under a bilateral agreement with Ukraine. With the signing of the March 18th Treaty, that agreement is null and void. Sevastopol including the Russian naval base become part of an autonomous region within the Russian Federation. The naval base is no within Ukraine under a lease agreement. Moreover, Crimea’s territorial waters now belong to the Russian Federation. Russia now formally controls a much larger portion of the Black Sea, which includes the entire coastline of the Crimean peninsula. The Eastern part of Crimea –including the Kerch straits– are now under Russia’s jurisdiction control. On the Eastern side of the Kerch straits is Russia’s Krasnodar region and extending southwards are the port cities of Novorossiysk and Sochi. Novorossiysk is also strategic. It is Russia’s largest commercial port on the Black Sea, at the cross-roads of major oil and gas pipelines between the Black Sea and Caspian sea. Historically, the Kerch straits have played a strategic role. They constitute a gateway from the Black Sea to Russia’s major waterways including the Don and the Volga. During World War II, the Kerch peninsula occupied by Nazi Germany was an important point of transit by land and water. In the coldest months of Winter, it became an ice bridge linking Crimea to the Krasnodar region. The Kerch straits are about 5 kilometers in length and 4.5 km. wide at the narrowest point between the tip of Eastern Crimea and the peninsula of Taman. Kerch is a major commercial port linked to railway, ferry and river routes. the integration of Crimea into the Russian Federation means that Moscow is now in full control of the Kerch Straits linking the Black Sea to the Sea of Azov. The Ukrainian authorities are no longer in control of the port of Kerch. The bilateral agreement between Russia and Ukraine governing the maritime route through the Kerch straights has been scrapped. The straits constitute an entry point into Russia’s major river waterways. The Sea of Azov connects with the Don River and the Volga, through the Volga Don Canal. In turn, the Volga flows into the Caspian sea. The Kerch straits are strategic. The Kerch-Yenikalskiy Canal allows large vessels to transit from the Black sea to the Sea of Azov. the Kerch Straits link the Black Sea to the Volga which in turn connects to the Moscow river through the Volga-Moskva canal. Full control of the narrow Kerch straits by Russia ensures unimpeded maritime transit from the Black Sea to Russia’s capital as well as the maritime route to the Caspian Sea. The Russia-Ukraine 2013 agreement pertaining to the construction of the bridge had, for all purposes already been scrapped before March 16. Crimea’s union to Russia was already in the pipeline prior to the referendum, it was a fait accompli. Less than two weeks before the March 16 Referendum, at the height of the crisis in Ukraine, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered the state-road building corporation “Russian Highways” “to create a subsidiary company that will oversee the building of a bridge across the Kerch Strait”. This bridge would largely be geared towards train transport routes linking Western and Eastern Europe to the Caspian Sea basin, Kazakhstan and China. subscribe: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9IFRHTtYJFjhI5fBrLIJiQ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DNA997
