Destroyed ships of the Black Sea Fleet

After the occupation of Crimea in 2014, Russia appropriated all the ships. Now these ships are firing on Ukrainian cities, and the Ukrainian Armed Forces are methodically destroying them one by one.


Moskva large missile cruiser

"The Moskva is a Soviet and Russian Project 1164 missile cruiser (codenamed Atlant, Slava class according to NATO classification) that served in 1982-2022. The lead ship of its series. It was part of the Russian Black Sea Fleet and was its flagship. In 2022, during Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, it was destroyed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

It became widely known after the attack on 24 February 2022 on the Ukrainian garrison on Zmiinyi Island, when the ship responded to the Ukrainian soldiers' offer to surrender with the words "Russian warship, go fuck yourself".

On 13 April 2022, the Ukrainian Navy struck the cruiser with two R-360 Neptune cruise missiles from the RK-360MK Neptune coastal anti-ship complex. As a result of the damage and difficult weather conditions, it capsized and sank. On the evening of 14 April, the Russian Ministry of Defence acknowledged the sinking of the Moskva.

This was the first destruction of a ship of this size in combat since 1982, when the British submarine HMS Conqueror sank the Argentine cruiser General Belgrano during the Falklands War; and the largest loss of the Russian Navy since 1941, when German bombing destroyed the battleship Marat.

Saratov large amphibious assault ship

During Russia's invasion of Ukraine, on 21 March 2022, as part of a group of ships, it arrived in Russian-occupied Berdiansk to unload equipment and troops. On 24 March 2022, the Ukrainian military destroyed the ship with a Tochka-U missile. Due to the difficulty of confirming the information, a number of Ukrainian and international media first reported the destruction of another ship of the same type, the Orsk VDK.

In early July, a photo of the ship's wreckage was circulated, showing that it had been completely destroyed.

On 24 March 2023, the commander of the Crimean naval base of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Felix Menkov, admitted that the ship had been destroyed.

It was destroyed on 13 September 2023 by Storm Shadow cruise missiles as a result of a Ukrainian strike on Sevmorzavod. "The Rostov-on-Don was the first Russian submarine lost in the Russian-Ukrainian war and the first submarine in history to be destroyed by a cruise missile.

Novocherkassk large amphibious assault ship
