The USA recognized the helplessness of their aircraft carriers in front of the Russian Federation and China

American aircraft carriers are helpless against Russian and Chinese missiles, retired US Navy Captain Jerry Hendrix writes in an article for the Wall Street Journal.

He specified that Russia and China have effective combat means that prevent carrier-based fighter-bombers from approaching the coast at a distance of less than 1800 kilometers.

The military expert believes that the United States needs to increase the range of strikes. According to him, it is necessary to place long-range aircraft on aircraft carriers, otherwise the aircraft carrier strike groups will not be able to compete with the Russian Federation and the PRC.

Recall that in early November, the crews of the Black Sea Fleet submarines, as part of the exercises, worked out a missile strike on a detachment of ships of the conditional enemy. The submarines used Kalibr-PL missiles.

The Chinese authorities have decided to lower the level of diplomatic relations with Lithuania. This is reported by the Central Television of the People's Republic of China.

According to him, Beijing will downgrade diplomatic relations with Lithuania to the level of chargé d'affaires. This decision was made by the Chinese government against the backdrop of the opening of a representative office of Taiwan in Lithuania. In accordance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, the class of chargé d'affaires is the third rank of heads of diplomatic missions after ambassadors and envoys.

The PRC government believes that the opening of a representative office is a violation of the principle of one China and its territorial integrity, as well as interference in its internal affairs. “ China expresses its sharp discontent and strong protest in this regard and has decided to downgrade China-Lithuania diplomatic relations to the level of chargé d'affaires, '' & mdash; The TV channel quotes a statement from an official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China.

The ministry said in a statement that China was forced to lower diplomatic relations with Lithuania, taking into account the fact that the political basis for diplomatic relations between Beijing and Vilnius at the level of ambassadors was destroyed. “ The Lithuanian government must bear the full responsibility arising from this, '' & mdash; emphasized in the Foreign Ministry.

CBS learns US intelligence position on Russia’s “invasion” of Ukraine

American intelligence officers believe that the likelihood of an invasion of Russian troops will increase as the cold weather sets in, this may happen in the next few weeks, if the West does not intervene in the situation, reports CBS

US intelligence officials warned European allies on a potential Russian military invasion of Ukraine, the likelihood of which increases as the temperature falls. This is reported by CBS News, citing unnamed US officials.

“The [Russian invasion of Ukraine] is weather dependent, but could happen within weeks if the West does not intervene,” “mdash; the interlocutors of the broadcaster speak.

CBS notes that on Friday, November 19, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milli, held talks with the Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (AFU), General Valery Zaluzhny. They discussed the security situation in Eastern Europe, including data on Russian military activity near Ukraine's borders. Millie, spokesman for the Joint Committee, Colonel Dave Butler, stressed the need to continue consultations between regional allies and reaffirmed US support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Data on US fears about a possible invasion of Ukraine appeared against the background of the migration crisis on the border of Poland and Belarus, writes CBS. The American authorities have not yet determined whether there is any connection between Russia and the situation with refugees on the Polish-Belarusian border, the publication notes. “ We must prepare ourselves for this problem to persist for several months. I have no doubt that it will be so '', & mdash; CBS quotes Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszak.

Earlier, The New York Times, citing sources, reported that US intelligence had warned European allies that there was “ little time left '' to prevent Russia from starting hostilities in Ukraine. According to the interlocutors of the publication, Russia has not yet decided what it will do with the troops, “ which it has gathered at the border of Ukraine. '' However, U.S. intelligence takes the 'invasion' threat seriously. and do not believe that this is a bluff, sources noted.

In October, Western media began to report that Russia was building up its military presence on the border with Ukraine. In particular, The Washington Post wrote about this. American and European officials told the publication that they see “unusual movements of equipment and military personnel on the western flank of Russia.” and began to record this after the completion of the Russian-Belarusian exercises “ West-2021 '', which took place from 10 to 15 September. The article noted that the movement of troops is taking place against the background of the fact that Russia has taken a tougher position in relation to Ukraine, and the conflict in Donbass is “ entering a new stage. ''

В in turn, the Politico newspaper published satellite images. They, presumably, captured the accumulation of tanks of the Russian armed forces near the city of Yelnya in the Smolensk region, about 250 km from the border with Ukraine.

At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine stated that as of November 1, no buildup was recorded Russian military contingent near the border.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the movement of Russian military equipment and army units across the country & mdash; it is exclusively a matter of Russia, and the latest publications about their appearance near the border of Ukraine are “ not even worth commenting on.

“One hundred percent”: Satanovsky called the impending war between the West and Russia inevitable

Photo: Social networks

Political scientist Yevhen Satanovsky said in an interview with Ukraina.ru that the military conflict between Russia and the West is more than possible, the whole question is only in the timing of this event & nbsp; and whether nuclear weapons will be used. It is also important to understand how prepared Russian strategic systems will be, which were designed to forestall the American threat.

“ The fact that there will be war is understandable. And now no one knows when it will be, '' said Satanovsky. He noted that no one really wants war – & nbsp; this was the case with the First World War and the Vietnam War. But it is happening anyway.

At the same time, Russia should expect an escalation from several directions at once. These are Ukraine, Poland, Turkey, Transcaucasia. You should even expect strikes from the North Pole. “ Attempts to drive another submarine with missiles of the AEGIS system into the Barents Sea, and so that it bombarded Russian territory, is also a reality, and a lot of what we talked about – things are real, '' says the expert.

In addition, Satanovsky believes that even the pan-Turkic project of the Great Turan, which was authored by Turkey, will be supported by the forces of the West.

It became known which weapon “multiplied by zero” American aircraft carriers

The United States has recognized the uselessness of “floating airfields” in the war with the Russian Federation and China

It seems that the United States has realized the importance of Russian hypersonic weapons, which President Putin announced back in March 2018 … True, it took the Americans more than three years for this. And finally, the Wall Street Journal in 2021 publishes an article by the vice president of the military consulting company Telemus Group and the retired US Navy captain Jerry Hendrix. In it, the officer admits that the means of destruction available to Russia and China “drove” American aircraft carriers from their shores to such a distance from which carrier-based aircraft simply cannot reach the desired targets.

Photo: pixabay.com

And this, of course, is a tragedy for the United States, given that it was on aircraft carriers that they made their main stake in their time. Today the United States has a dozen aircraft carriers. New ones are being built, each worth $ 13 billion. Russia has only one old aircraft-carrying cruiser, Admiral Kuznetsov. But now Russia may not worry about this.

How did the US Navy earlier use strike aircraft carrier groups (aircraft carrier and combat support and cover ships) in the wars against Yugoslavia and Iraq? They drove the aircraft carriers almost close to the coast and organized waves of air attacks on important targets in the victim's territory. Hundreds of carrier-based aircraft took part in massive raids. The result of those wars is known – Belgrade and Baghdad surrendered.

But in a war with Russia or China, writes Jerry Hendrix, this number will not work. Due to Russian and Chinese missiles, aircraft carriers will not be able to approach the enemy's shores closer than 1800 km. And the range of the F-35 “stealth” carrier-based aircraft is no more than 1120 km. Dead end.

At the same time, the aircraft carriers themselves – huge and not the fastest ships – are turning into an easy target for hypersonic high-precision missiles. And Russia and China have such missiles.

Jerry Hendrix offers several solutions to the problem. For example, create long-range attack deck drones or build smaller aircraft-carrying ships armed with missiles. But such programs cannot be quickly implemented. It takes decades and hundreds of billions of additional dollars. And we, as they say, already have everything.

The Russian Navy has designed mobile and stationary coastal missile systems “Bastion” for an average range of up to 500 kilometers. Their weapons are the 3M55 Onyx supersonic anti-ship missiles. The feature of these missiles is the ability to fly to a target in a flock, exchanging target data in flight, choose the most significant and strike with an irresistible vertical strike.

Bastions are stationed in Crimea, Kaliningrad, Severomorsk, Kamchatka, Sakhalin.

The Dagger air-missile system with the Kh-47M hypersonic missile has a much greater range. The missile carried by the MiG-31K high-altitude interceptor can accelerate to a speed 10-12 times higher than the speed of sound – more than 10 thousand km/h – and hit targets at a distance of up to 2000 km.

” Daggers “are already on alert in the Southern Military District and, presumably, will soon take over duty in the Pacific Fleet.

Dagger missiles are too tough for any US missile defense system. Due to the enormous kinetic energy, it will sew the aircraft carrier from the upper deck to the hold itself. The defeat is almost guaranteed.

And, finally, a novelty – the Zircon hypersonic missiles. A series of successful tests was carried out on board ships and a submarine. From 2022, as they promise, “Zircons” will go into service with the Russian Navy. The speed of the rocket, according to various sources, is from 6 to 8 times the speed of sound. The flight range is 1500 kilometers. The mass of the warhead (200 kg) is sufficient to sink any warship, hitting the right point.

It is hoped that this entire arsenal will be appreciated not only by the retired American military, but also by the military -political leadership of the United States. And he will draw the right conclusions – is it worth talking to Russia from a position of strength? Or is it better to negotiate on equal terms.

And you can probably also be glad for us that when choosing a strategy for the development of the fleet, we did not pursue ruinous programs for the construction of expensive aircraft carriers, but chose a much cheaper and much more effective way of creating “aircraft carrier killers.”/p>

Why change spelling rules?

Weekly “Arguments and Facts” No. 46. Where will they not be allowed without a QR code? 11/17/2021

Why are new spelling and punctuation rules being developed? Will the whole country have to retrain?

Expert's answer 0 + –

The draft of new rules was developed by the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation. These changes are caused by the fact that the Russian language is experiencing a strong wave of borrowings. There are many words, the spelling of which requires clarification, because they are written in different ways.

“ These are, for example, the words distributor, banner, tutor, realtor & hellip; The latter has four spellings: realtor, realtor, realtor and realtor. The new rules suggest staying at the fourth option. After all, say, we write a patient not through E, but through E, & ndash; says scientific director of the Center for Media Communications Research at the State Institute of the Russian Language. A. S. Pushkin Andrey Shcherbakov . & ndash; The second point is connected with writing together or with a hyphen. For example, mass media is invited to write in one piece, as well as online and offline. When these words first came to us, they were written in Latin and hyphenated. By the way, the Internet was also written in Latin letters and with a capital letter, and now they write exclusively in Cyrillic and more and more often with a small letter.

But I emphasize: the Ministry of Education does not propose a reform, but only a document that fixes the current situation. To consolidate the new norms and enter them into dictionaries, a government decision is required, under which a working group operates. She hasn’t even gotten around to it yet. ”
