Putin shows off Russia’s naval might with parade!


SAINT PETERSBURG:
President Vladimir Putin on Sunday oversaw a pomp-filled display of Russia’s naval might as the Kremlin paraded its sea power from the Baltic Sea to the shores of Syria. Some 50 warships and submarines were on show along the Neva River and in the Gulf of Finland off the country’s second city of Saint Petersburg after Putin ordered the navy to hold its first ever parade on such a grand scale. “Today much is being done to develop and modernise the navy,” Putin told servicemen after surveying the military hardware.

“The navy is not only dealing with its traditional tasks but also responding with merit to new challenges, making a significant contribution to the fight against terrorism and piracy.” The showcase event to mark Russia’s annual Navy Day is the latest to be beefed up by Putin, with the Kremlin strongman also bolstering the traditional WWII victory parade in Moscow as he looks to flex the country’s military muscles. Russia has ramped up its military manoeuvres as ties with the West have slumped over Moscow’s meddling in Ukraine. — AFP
