    Completly stupid. They could have get some money and they said no just to spend huge money not leting it sink in their port and paying for scraping. Any amount would have been a win for them, even 1000 $ is very good for the corrupt officers that would have made the decision. But they want always more and they end up with nothing just like with their "signatures" of "agreements" to be member of "EU/NATO".

    It's in the main naval base on Black Sea now.

    Thanks for the clarification. I got confused, I am warming up for Tuesday evening thumbsup

    It's probably for the better as buying the Ukraina would have needed a ton of money to complete her to Soviet-era standard, let alone upgrading her. The RuN is still deciding what to do with Moskva who AFAIK is still equipped by Soviet legacy systems (repair? upgrade? scrap?).

    I'd love to see 4x Slava fully repaired and modernised, but the RuN has better ways to spend money.

    Missile cruiser "Marshal Ustinov" in Sevastopol made a call to Sevastopol. The crew will have a short rest in the main base of the Black Sea Fleet, after which the cruiser, in early January, will lead the grouping of ships within the framework of the planned exercises of the Southern Military District in the Black Sea. In the new history of the Black Sea Fleet, this is the first time that two powerful cruisers of the Atlant type appeared at the same pier in Holland Bay. It looks really impressive!

    Maybe some big gold/diamond transport that need escort.

    Russia and South Africa are both great players in that field.
