The city of Poltava and its surroundings were an area of fierce combat actions in 1943. Many decades had passed since that time but even now a bucket of excavator or tractor plough digs out such a reminder of the past war shown on the photo below. This 76-mm shell was found a few days ago not far from Poltava. Many 76 mm divisional guns M1942 (ZIS-3) were used during the liberation of Poltava in September 1943. To collect and defuse a numerous shells and bombs all regional centres of Ukraine have special military units manned by qualified sappers and equipped with the most appropriate technical means. The same day a very dangerous find was detonated in a controlled explosion.

The Russian Chief of Staff, General Nikolai Makarov, today warned the US against stationing Aegis-equipped ships in the Black and northern seas. Gen. Makarov pointed out that deployment of Aegis combat system’s elements in these seas “posed a threat” to Russia and forced Moscow to take retaliatory steps to eliminate it. He also stressed that these would be measures of last resort since they required “additional expenses.” A US Navy cruiser armed with Aegis has recently been spotted in the Black Sea. Washington has also been calling on Norway to equip their warships with Aegis. “Luckily, Norway has taken a posed stance,” he added. Russia and US-led NATO will further look into the issue of the EU missile shield at the upcoming Chicago summit this May. At the meeting, the US is to focus on the results of the first stage of the EU missile shield deployment.
On the photo you ca see USS Lake Champlain, a Ticonderoga-class Aegis guided missile cruiser, launched in 1987. This version is equipped with the Mark 41 VLS system, whereas earlier versions were equipped with the Mark-26 twin-arm missile launcher system

Novosibirsk - The Russian Armed Forces should be supplied with the necessary amount of weaponry and military hardware to guarantee national security, including strategic security, Vice Premier Dmitry Rogozin believes. "We need to develop a compact, mighty, fearsome army armed to the teeth and strategic forces that will be a guarantee of our security," he said at a Wednesday meeting with the heads of defense industry plants in Novosibirsk. He also spoke of the need to establish a single system of enterprises working for air and space defense.
"Russia has several corporations working in the sphere of air and space defense. They cannot be knitted into a single concern. But an integral system must be made. An integrator should be developed for air and space defense," he said.
"We are interested in combining the defense industry, research and customer," Rogozin concluded.
