However, the concerns many Ukrainians in the Eastern and Southern In Russia there are also distinctions and In Russia the victory in the so-called "Great disagreements between imperial, national and liberal So, official Ukraine.
The national-imperial narrative seems to be It is undeniable that Ukraine and Russia have a They are closer entangled than other However, numerous members of these organiza- nations by the common religion Orthodoxy , by a partially Most Ukrainians Russia-dominated Soviet Union. So, the Russian-Ukrainian relationship was and is still characterized by an obvious asymmetry, a hegemony of Russia over Ukraine. This asymmetry is reflected in the competing discourses. Many Russians regard Ukraine as part of the Russian orbit and even of the Russian nation.
Independent Ukraine tries to liberate itself from the Russian hegemony, while Russia wants to keep Ukraine in its own sphere of influence. Russia uses the Orthodox Church and the traditional dominance of the Russian language as instruments for its hegemonic policy. It is supported by a significant part of Ukrainians of Russian and of Ukrainian origin, who adhere to this view of a common Russia-led Orthodox East Slavic world.
Ukrainian historians and politicians use the Ukrainian language and the Ukrainian historical narrative with its national myths of liberty and its closeness to Europe in their campaigns against the Russian hegemony. The on-going Russian-Ukrainian "War of memories" is of special interest. So history and memory matter. It is impossible to understand and to explain what is going on in Russia and the other post-Soviet states without taking into account the imperial heritage of the tsarist Empire and of the Soviet Union and its interpretations and remembrances.
The ongoing struggle over hegemony in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus between Russia on the one hand and the European Union and the NATO on the other hand, is focused on Ukraine, the second state in Europe by territory. In Russia again exerted considerable pressure on Ukraine in order to keep Ukraine in its own strategic orbit and to prevent the integration of Ukraine into the European Union.
In , President Vladimir Putin announced a plan to build 51 modern ships and 24 submarines by Russian naval manpower is a mixture of conscripts serving one-year terms and volunteers Officers and Ratings. As of the conscription term was reduced to one year and a major downsizing and reorganization were underway. In , plans were announced to move the headquarters to the Admiralty building in St. Petersburg , the historic location of the headquarters of the Imperial Russian Navy. The Navy staff finally relocated there on November The Russian Naval Infantry are the amphibious force of the Russian Navy and can trace their origins back to , when Peter I issued a decree for an infantry regiment "of naval equipage".
Under the leadership of Admiral Gorshkov during the Cold War, the Soviet Navy expanded the reach of the Naval Infantry and deployed it worldwide on numerous occasions, but since the dissolution of the Soviet Union its role has been greatly reduced. During the Cold War the naval aviation pursued a policy of deploying large numbers of bombers in maritime strike roles to counter the U. Navys extensive fleet of aircraft carriers, by it operated over 1, fixed-wing aircraft with the majority being bombers such as the TuM "Backfire" and the Tu "Badger".
As of , the Russian Naval Aviation consists of the following components: . The Russian Navy consists of four fleets and one flotilla subordinated to 3 of 4 of the newly formed Joint Operational Strategic Commands. The Russian Northern Fleet, established as a modern formation in , is headquartered at Severomorsk and spread around various bases in the greater Murmansk area.
This is the main fleet of the Russian Navy and currently comprises: . The Fleet also includes many corvettes, patrol ships, light amphibious ships and support and logistic ships. The Baltic Fleet, established on 18 May , is based in Baltiysk and Kronshtadt , with its headquarters in the city of Kaliningrad, Kaliningrad Oblast.

The fleet also has various other facilities on the Crimean Peninsula and facilities in Krasnodar Kray. The Fleet also includes a small number of corvettes, patrol and coastal protection ships, light amphibious ships, and support vessels.

The Pacific Fleet also includes coastal combatants such as corvettes, patrol ships, mine warfare ships, light amphibious ships, and support vessels. There are also naval aviation and coastal troops and naval infantry components. The recent improvement in the Russian economy has led to a significant rise in defence expenditure and an increase in numbers of ships under construction, focusing on submarines, such as the conventional Petersburg Lada class and nuclear Severodvinsk Yasen class. Some older ships have been refitted as well. Jane's Fighting Ships commented in that the construction programme was too focused on Cold War scenarios, given the submarine emphasis.
On 28 April , the Ukrainian parliament ratified an agreement to extend Russia's lease of Crimean base facilities to with an option for five more years, through The Russian Navy has also revealed that the Russia's Black Sea Fleet will receive 30 new ships by and will become self-sufficient with its own infrastructure in the Crimean peninsula.
The fleet will be updated with new warships, submarines, and auxiliary vessels within the next six years. The new ships being built for the Black Sea Fleet include six Admiral Grigorovich-class frigates and six Varshavyanka-class Improved Kilo-class diesel-electric submarines.
In the last years of the s naval activity was very low. Even at the height of the Kosovo war crisis a planned task group deployment to the Mediterranean was reduced to the dispatch of the intelligence ship Liman. Warships and helicopters from the Japanese and South Korean navies also took part. The Northern Fleet followed in January when thirteen ships and seven submarines took part in exercises in the Barents Sea. The involvement of Admiral Kuznetsov and Kirov -class battlecruiser nuclear-powered cruiser Petr Velikiy was overshadowed however by two ballistic missile launch failures, made more embarrassing because President Vladimir Putin was afloat aboard the Typhoon-class SSBN Arkhangelsk to witness the tests.
He was replaced by Admiral Vladimir Masorin in September Embarrassment for the Navy had continued, with a mine accident during rehearsals for the Baltic Fleet's celebration of Navy Day in St. However exercises and operations continued - Peace Mission in August involved a new level of cooperation between Russia and the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy. It included surface firings, air defence, and anti-submarine warfare ASW exercises. On October 16, , the speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament did not preclude Russia asking for a resumption of a naval presence in Yemen.
Authorities in the Middle East country had been calling on Moscow to help fight piracy and possible terrorist threats. The U. Speaking to journalists in Sana, the capital]] of Yemen, Federation Council Speaker Sergey Mironov said the new direction of Russia's foreign and defense policies and an increase in its naval missions would be taken into consideration when making a decision on the request. Mironov also said a visit to Russia by the president of Yemen , Ali Abdullah Saleh , could take place in the near future and that the issue of military technical cooperation could be raised during his visit.
