This is coolbert:

From MARCONI through Harry at Sharkhunters:

Oz is Australia.

That Russian flotilla approaching Australia during the G20 conference sailing in the INDIAN OCEAN and not steaming through the Coral Sea as I originally had reported.

"UNFORTUNATELY my Russian isn't very good but I monitored on 8.345 amongst some high speed CW the odd voice chat which included 'Voyage' and 'Shaposhnikov' ( I believe this to be the destroyer 'Marshal Shaposhnikov' and the Cruiser 'Varag 543')"

"Both these ships are based in Vladivostok and are showing off in the Indian Ocean due to both the spat between Oz and Russia over the Malayan Airline Shooting down in Ukraine, and the G20 summit in Queensland ."

"A close watch by the RAAF (P3 Orion), and the RAN frigates 'Stuart' and 'Paramata' who are shadowing them and using Pearce RAAF Base in Perth to report.activities , but so far they have stayed in International Waters."

NO violation of Australian territorial waters and no mention of submarine activity.

Thank you MARCONI and Harry.
