smugglers-attempted-to-export-a-nuclear-submarine-from-russia-to-china

Russian customs officers detained 106 tons of scrap metal from a decommissioned nuclear submarine while trying to export it to China without a license. This was reported by the press service of the Federal Customs Service (FCS).


After cutting the hull of the submarine, they tried to export the steel by a private company under the guise of scrap of ferrous metals. As noted in the department, for the export abroad of metals that can be reused by melting and subsequent forging when creating military equipment, a license of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation of Russia is required.



It was found that the scrap from the submarine was purchased at the shipyard at the auction. The director of the company participated in it, using the license of another company. It is issued to specialized state organizations that have received the right to foreign trade with products of a special category.


A criminal case has been opened against the head of the exporting company under article 226.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Smuggling of military equipment).

30-funny-submarine-crisis-memes-between-france-us-and-australia

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian spoke on Saturday about the "serious crisis" caused by the torpedoing of a huge French submarine contract for Canberra, denouncing a lie (...), a duplicity (...), a loss "confidence" and "contempt" from France's allies, notes AFP.


Asked on the television channel France 2, Jean-Yves Le Drian justified the recall of the French ambassadors to Canberra and Washington by saying that there was "a serious crisis between us".


This measure, the first in the history of Paris-Washington relations, "is very symbolic." "It was a lie, it was duplicity, it was a major loss of trust, it was contempt, so it doesn't work between us," he said.


"We called on the ambassadors to try to understand and to show the former partner countries that we have a very strong dissatisfaction, that there is really a serious crisis between us," the foreign minister said.


The recall of the French ambassador to London, on the other hand, was considered useless: "We know their permanent opportunism," he said ironically a few months after Brexit. "The UK in this business is a kind of fifth wheel in the wagon," added Jean-Yves Le Drian.


The United States, Australia and the United Kingdom on Wednesday announced a strategic partnership to counter China's AUKUS, including the supply of nuclear-powered US submarines to Canberra, which effectively knocked the French out of the game.


In 2016, France signed a contract worth A $ 90 billion (€ 56 billion) to supply Australia with 12 classically powered submarines, often considered the "contract of the century" because of its strategic value and importance.


On the other hand, the foreign minister also appreciated that the crisis will weigh on the definition of the new strategic concept of NATO, without evoking, however, a withdrawal from the North Atlantic Alliance.


"NATO has initiated a reflection, at the request of the President of France, on its foundations. The new NATO concept will be presented at the next NATO summit in Madrid. Obviously, what just happened will have to do with this definition, "said Jean-Yves Le Drian.


"At the same time, Europe must equip itself with its strategic compass and will be under the responsibility of France in the first half of 2022," he added, referring to the French presidency of the European Union from 1 January.


After the brutal withdrawal of the Americans from Afghanistan, without consulting their allies, and this submarine case, "if Europeans do not feel that in order to remain in history, they must unite and defend their own interests together, then their fate will be completely different ", underlined Jean-Yves Le Drian.
