“Second, the success of any military operation depends on air support. That is why aviation is a vital component of any naval assault force,” the commander went on to say.
The construction of a naval base has been under way in Novorossiisk, Northern Caucasus, since 2008. The Russian Defense Ministry will go ahead with that project even now that Crimea has reunited with Russia. Six submarines that are being built for the Russian Black Sea fleet will be deployed in Novorossiisk.
