Abstract: 
According to VLBI observations made during 1994–2000, the horizontal velocity of the radio astronomy station Simeiz relative to the Eurasian tectonic plate was determined at a speed of 2.8 ± 0.9 mm / year in the northeastern direction. Linked to local markers. An increase in the vertical axis of the radio telescope with a speed of 2.6 ″ per year has been established. The vertical speed of the station is 2.6 ± 3.0 mm / year.
