MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Commander of the Black Sea Fleet, Admiral Igor Osipov, congratulated all those involved in the holiday on the Day of the Russian Navy. The congratulation says: “Comrades sailors and foremen, warrant officers and warrant officers, officers, admirals and generals, workers and employees, veterans of the Great Patriotic War and the Armed Forces, I congratulate you on the Day of the Russian Navy! I congratulate all those who carry out military service on ships and in units, work on auxiliary ships, in institutions and enterprises, those who live with the Black Sea Fleet by the same fate.
The modern Black Sea Fleet has reliably taken its place in the state security system in the southern direction. We are not standing still, we are building a new fleet that relies on historical traditions, the experience of many generations of Russian sailors, and fully meets modern challenges.
Renovation of the ship’s personnel, technical re-equipment of coastal forces and naval aviation are in full swing, which makes it possible to effectively carry out the entire range of tasks inherent in the fleet.
Separately, I would like to congratulate the crews of ships and vessels that are performing tasks as part of the permanent formation of the Navy in the Mediterranean Sea. Celebrating their professional holiday far from their native shores is a special honor for sailors.
I sincerely congratulate the veterans of the Great Patriotic War, veterans of the fleet, who will always be a moral guideline for us and an example for the current generation of defenders of the Fatherland, on this holiday.
Admiral I. Osipov wished everyone good health, happiness, family well-being and, as is customary among sailors, “seven feet under the keel.”
