    Current Russian Navy - practices and situations

    Here is something interesting I came across - I hope you can appreciate how screwed up the Russian navy is currently.

    Just a small excerpt -

    Food on French ships was significantly better and varied. The basic part of the menu – frutti di mare, meat and vegetables. For the week the Russian officers were on board, the menu did not repeat itself. According to the French sailors, the menu begins to repeat itself after they have been at sea for a month. As opposed to the Russian BPK, where the ration worsens as you go from the Captain's table, to the wardroom for the officers and warrants and further down to the crew, on the French destroyers and multipurpose submarines, there is one galley and the food is the same for everyone. The only difference: the crew’s mess is self service while the wardroom is served by well trained orderlies.
    If anyone is from IN, can they give us a perspective from the IN standpoint? What does In do? How do they compare against the French naval practices/ process? How do they compare against the Russians?

    It is like that smear campaign on the Indian Navy.

    So, what the hell is wrong with Russian navy? In the Soviet times, the Soviet navy was one of the best in terms of training and discipline. Now Russian navy seems more like Pakistani Navy ...

    Any comments from any IN personnel?

    Any comments from French or US Navy about IN conditions?
