Pyotr Velikiy (RussianПётр Великий) is the fourth Kirov-class battlecruiser of the Russian Navy.

 

It was initially named Yuri Andropov (Russian: Юрий Андропов) for Yuri Andropov, the former General Secretary of the Communist Party, but the ship's name was changed after the fall of the Soviet Union.

 

The Russian designation for the type is "heavy nuclear missile cruiser", but Western defense commentators have resurrected the term "battlecruiser" to describe them, as they are the largest surface "line of battle" warships in the world. Pyotr Velikiy is the flagship of the Northern Fleet.

Construction of the ship was delayed by lack of funding due to the national economic problems before and after the fall of the Soviet Union. It was not completed and commissioned until 1998, twelve years after work had started. By then it had been renamed Pyotr Velikiy, Russian for Peter the Great. Pyotr Velikiy has been known to carry two pennant numbers during its service: "183" and currently "099".

It’s bad enough the romanticized TV portrayal of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service is nothing like the real thing, the sleuths at NCIS just had to wish the US Navy a happy birthday with a photo of a Russian cruiser.

Most Americans know about NCIS from the CBS TV series that’s been running for almost 20 years – a brainchild of the same producer that romanticized the JAG corps before that. The actual military agency barely cracks the top 10 Google searches. This week, they might wish they didn’t.

On Wednesday, the official NCIS Twitter account – for the naval agency, not the TV show – wished its parent service branch a happy 246th birthday, with a smart graphic of the giant US flag fluttering beside an impressive-looking surface ship. There was just one tiny problem: the vessel turned out to be Pyotr Velikiy, the flagship of the Russian Northern Fleet – named after Peter the Great, the first Romanov emperor of Russia.

 

“NCIS yesterday mistakenly used an incorrectly labeled stock image of a Russian ship in a tweet commemorating the 246th anniversary of the US Navy,” Lieutenant Commander Patricia Kreuzberger told Task & Purpose on Thursday, adding that the service “is refining its internal review processes to prevent future errors.”

It wasn’t the first time NCIS goofed, either. Some sharp-eyed online sleuths noticed the agency had wished a happy birthday to the US Air Force last month with a graphic resembling Russian Sukhoi-34 jets, rather than any US designs. 

As of this writing, that post was still up on the NCIS Facebook page – so either no one noticed, or nobody bothered to point it out. It’s hard to decide what’s worse. It’s worth noting that the exact same graphic was used by US Southern Command – which covers South America – for the same birthday card, but they did catch flak for it and pulled their tweet down

One could think that this "error" was done deliberately as not to show favour to one particular US ship, hoping that no-one would notice...

US pirates and saboteurs...

Russian sailors were scrambled to head off the American missile destroyer USS Chafee as it set course to violate their country’s maritime borders in waters closed off for military exercises, Moscow’s Ministry of Defense has said.

On Friday, defense chiefs stated that the Chafee, an Arleigh-Burke class warship operated by the US Pacific Fleet, attempted to make its way into territory in the Russian Far East, before its course was diverted by one of the country’s anti-submarine ships, the “Admiral Tributs.”

According to the reports, the vessel had been operating in the Sea of Japan for several days before trying to cross the border near the Peter the Great Gulf.

“After receiving the warning, the destroyer Chafee, instead of changing course to leave the closed area, raised its colored flags to indicate preparation for a helicopter to take off from the deck, which means it is impossible to change course and speed, and took action to violate the state border of the Russian Federation in the Peter the Great Bay,” the Russian Defense Ministry commented.

Chafee, having seen the determination of the Russian ship’s crew not to allow the state border to be violated, changed direction and at 17:50 turned back, less than 60 meters away from the Admiral Tributs. The actions of the crew of USS Chafee were a gross violation of international rules for prevention of collision at sea and Russian-US intergovernmental agreement on prevention of incidents on the high seas and in the airspace above it,” the ministry blasted.

The US destroyer was also warned of the dangers of entering into the territory, as the Russia-China “Maritime Interaction-2021” exercises are underway in the Sea of Japan. In a message released by the Russian Air Defense Forces’ press service for the Pacific Fleet on Thursday, it was revealed that “during the exercises, the crews of the ships of the two countries will work out joint tactical maneuvering, anti-mine support, conduct artillery fire, and searching for and blocking a simulated enemy submarine.”

The incident has echoes of a similar row that took place last November, after the USS John McCain crossed into the waters of the Peter the Great Bay in what American commanders described as a “Freedom of Navigation Operation.” The McCain was warned by the Udaloy-class destroyer ‘Admiral Vinogradov’, whose crew threatened to ram it by force if it refused to turn around.

There has long been no shortage of factual information in various media publications about the USA’s ties with all sorts of gangs and terrorists. The international community has long shared a strong suspicion that the United States is using terrorists to promote its own national interests all over the world. And the conveyor belt of special training and use of fighters by Washington has not ceased until today, as, in particular, is clearly demonstrated to the world by the US actions in Syria. Washington’s blatant terrorist methods in its policy were also demonstrated in the January 2020 assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq.

Beyond that, however, specific documented actions of US Embassy employees with diplomatic passports as outright thugs and terrorists are also becoming quite common today.

And a clear example of this, in particular, can be seen not for the first time this year alone, such facts of actions by employees with diplomatic passports of the American Embassy in Moscow.

For example, three US Marines, employees of the US Embassy in Moscow with diplomatic passports, are suspected of having stolen a backpack from a Muscovite, as reported on October 8 by Vladimir Vasenin, the head of the press service of the Moscow Interior Ministry headquarters.  The Russian law enforcement services opened a criminal case over this fact. The investigation has video footage of the Americans entering the US Embassy building with the stolen backpack. These Marines are the Embassy’s administrative and technical staff aged between 21 and 26. They stole money and personal belongings from a child psychologist. According to him, he went to a bar in Moscow after a hard day’s work in the evening. As the victim stated, apart from the cash, there was a computer mouse, a sports uniform, and most importantly, his passport.

“A note has been sent to the US Embassy with a request to lift diplomatic immunity to prosecute three American diplomatic officials in connection with their identification as suspects in the theft of personal belongings from a Russian citizen,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. The Russian Foreign Ministry added that if the United States refuses to deprive suspects of diplomatic immunity, all three diplomats will have to leave Russia immediately.

It should be noted that very recently, in July of this year, the Russian Foreign Ministry delivered a note to the US Embassy to lift the immunity of another diplomat who had stolen a junction signal at the railway station Ostashkov in the Tver region, thereby endangering passengers of trains traveling on this section of track. The Russian police, as it should be, conducted investigative measures and found through video surveillance cameras that an unidentified man in his thirties had indeed stolen the junction signal and put it in the trunk of his car, which had US Embassy’s diplomatic plates. On the same day, the same car with the same license plates was stopped by the traffic policemen of the Tver region for a traffic violation, and an employee of the American Embassy was detected driving that car. The video material from CCTV cameras, which captures the moment when an American Embassy employee removes a junction signal on the railway was published by the NTV channel. The footage shows the man disconnecting the device, dropping it next to the tracks, but then picking it up after all and carrying it away with him, walking out into the woods. According to media reports, it was American diplomat Parker Wilson.

A critical circumstance is that the Ostashkov hub, where the theft of the junction signal took place, is a fairly busy track section. The railway is a high-risk area, and if the loss had not been detected in time, there could have been a tragedy with the deaths of many innocent people.  On July 13, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova reported the incident and demanded the lifting of diplomatic immunity from the American diplomat suspect. However, the American diplomatic mission in Moscow chose to send this employee back home but rather than waiving his immunity. Therefore, it is quite possible that in the near future, this American “diplomat” may find himself among the staff of the US Embassy in another country where he will carry out similar “operations.”

Using the example of the theft of this junction signal, the Czech Haló noviny told its readers some additional information on how US diplomats practice terrorism in Russia. In particular, the publication specified that in March, an employee of the US Embassy with a diplomatic cover photographed the equipment and operation of a military railway hub in the Tver Region, where military equipment is often transported. Moreover, not only did he take photos, but he also broke the semaphore signaling device, thus endangering the following trains. He took the broken semaphore signal to his car with diplomatic plates, which the police subsequently stopped, and he was detained. The explanation for these actions becomes clear from the apparent intentions of American “experts” to install an X-ray device that would capture military equipment covered by a tarp. The publication concludes its article with the words: “This story clearly confirms what the policy of the United States really is.”

Additionally confirming the terrorist actions of the USA, Deputy Director of the Foreign Ministry’s Department for Humanitarian Cooperation and Human Rights Grigory Lukyantsev said that since 2008 Washington has been conducting a serious hunt for Russian citizens in third countries with the purpose of their subsequent extradition to the USA. “With regard to persecution, a glaring example is a practice that the United States actively uses in hunting down our citizens abroad arresting our citizens in third countries at the request of the law enforcement agencies of the United States in an attempt to extradite our citizens and bring them to justice in the United States. More than 50 such cases have been reported since 2008, and unfortunately, the number of such cases continues to increase.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov did not rule out that the USA would also try to kidnap Russian athletes, whom it considers a threat to itself, under the pretext of doping violations.

The involvement of the United States in so-called “state terrorism” since the late 1970s has been covered by renowned American political publicists Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman in a series of books.  Chomsky and Herman argued that terror was concentrated in the US sphere of influence in developing countries and documented human rights violations committed by US client states. Chomsky and Herman concluded that the global rise in state terror was the result of US foreign policy.
