Russian warship enters Sudan port in new military deal

The Admiral Grigorovich is the first Russian warship to enter Port Sudan Under the deal Russia will also be given the right to transport weapons, ammunition and equipment via Sudan’s ports and airports


DUBAI: A Russian warship has entered a Sudanese port where Moscow plans to build a naval base on Sudan’s Red Sea coast.

The Admiral Grigorovich is the first Russian warship to enter Port Sudan, state news agency Interfax reported citing the Russian fleet on Sunday.

Russia previously announced a deal in November which outlined the creation of a logistical support center in Sudan where repairs and resupply operations would take place, as well as providing rest for crew members.

The facility’s capacity will be capped at 300 military and civilian personnel, as well as four ships – including nuclear-powered vessels and the deal will stand for 25 years.

Under the deal Russia will also be given the right to transport weapons, ammunition and equipment via Sudan’s ports and airports.

Moscow has been exploring Africa for this purpose as it enhances its geopolitical standing.

Russia signed a deal in May, 2019, with Sudan, outlining military and civilian nuclear cooperation, which is set to last seven years

  1. Those Russians are some good chess players. And they don’t waste money on useless military spending.

    • @Elvin, chess is definitely an intellectual game. But you won’t be full of chess alone. Yes, we spend little money on weapons development, efficiently. But really, it’s a matter of survival. We are armed to the teeth not because we like it and we are such warlike barbarians. We have to do this. Daily! We have no right to close our eyes even for a minute. Otherwise, we will simply be devoured. And, unfortunately, it sounds paradoxical, but: the more modern and effective weapons Russia has, the stronger the peace on the planet. I speak in a global sense. Under the USSR and the USA, there was at least some order. The whole world was afraid of us. And now the world has become like a wild jungle: whoever catches whom – will devour him.

    • Yes Andrew, America has treated Russia in a most shameful manner. And what makes that shameful treatment a thousand times more shameful, is that Russia should rightfully be America’s number 1 friend and ally.

    • Yes Elvin, our peoples are very similar. With the plus side of the Russian support of the family as the building block of society. There is much mutual benefit; and a model for the whole world if a peaceful relationship could he developed. Of course we have to deal with the Old World Insane Criminals.Moloch be damned.

    • Comment by Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on new US anti-Russia sanctions:
      1. The US Administration, teamed up with the EU, has made a hostile move towards Russia by announcing new sanctions “to punish Moscow.”

      Having become enmeshed in its own domestic problems, the White House is again trying to cultivate the image of an external enemy. We have repeatedly commented on this US policy which lacks logic and common sense. It is increasingly aggravating bilateral relations that Washington has already brought to a complete halt.

      Absurdity triumphs when the reason behind the sanctions is based on Alexey Navalny’s alleged “poisoning” with some toxic “chemical warfare” agent. This is just a pretext for the continuing undisguised interference in our domestic affairs, and we will not accept this. Based on the principle of reciprocity, we will respond but not necessarily with symmetrical measures.

    • 2. We can only assume that the US administration does not realise that times have changed and that in the current geopolitical realities attempts to dictate one’s will to others are counterproductive for those who are unable to quit this approach. Instead of instigating a new round of confrontation the US should concentrate on the honest implementation of its commitments, for example, on the destruction of its chemical weapons, weapons Russia hasn’t possessed since 2017.

      Apparently, our US colleagues find it difficult to understand and accept the idea that their claims to exclusivity are baseless. Any hopes to impose something on Russia by way of sanctions or other pressure have failed in the past and will fail now. If the US is not ready for an equitable and reasonable dialogue, this is their choice. Regardless of the US’s enthusiasm for sanctions we will continue to consistently and resolutely uphold our national interests and rebuff any aggression. We urge our colleagues not to play with fire.

      As a serial violator of international treaties and agreements on arms control and the non-proliferation of weapons, Washington is, by definition, deprived of the moral right to “lecture” others.

    • I believe that such arm race is planned and a tactical theatrical play in order to boost arm technology to defend ourselves against… “foreign” threat. And I mean “foreign” as in… to the planet.
      All I note is that this arm race began in the years after heavy ufo wave sightings.
