Moving of headquarters not well perceived in Russian Navy

Moving of headquarters not well perceived in Russian Navy 14.12.2007
The moving of the headquarters of the Russian Navy from Moscow to Sankt Petersburg has encountered major resistance among Navy officials. The conflict could result in the dismissal of several high-ranking Navy representatives.

The Russian government has already decided that the Navy headquarters will be moved to the Admiralty in Sankt Petersburg. However, the transfer to the Russian “northern capital” has not been well perceived among all officials.

Critics argue that the Admiralty will not be able to house all the structures of the Navy headquarters. In addition several of the buildings are of historic importance and will need technical upgrades.

The Ministry of Defence argue that Sankt Petersburg has most of Russian navy institutions and that also the Navy headquarters should be stationed in the city. Sources in the ministry say that the officials who do not obey orders will be dismissed. –Decrees are not for discussion, a Navy spokesman says.
