    Ukraine's only sub to reenter service in spring

    RIA Novosti

    14:26 02/11/2010

    KIEV, November 2 (RIA Novosti) - Ukraine's only submarine will become operational again in the spring of 2011, after almost 10 years under repairs, Chief of Staff Rear Adm. Yuriy Ilyin said on Tuesday.

    Sea trials will start in December and continue through May, he said.

    Ukraine received the Zhaporozye submarine (launched in 1970) following the division of the Soviet Black Sea Fleet.

    It has been under repairs since 1991.

    Ukrainian Submarine Sails for Sea Trials

    RIA Novosti

    17:34 25/04/2012

    KIEV, April 25 (RIA Novosti) - Ukraine’s only submarine, the Zaporozhye, has left the port of Sevastopol on the Black Sea for sea trials for the first time after many years of repairs.

    The Soviet-era Foxtrot class (Project 641) diesel-electric submarine stood grounded at a dock in Sevastopol for years without repair and became a symbol of the demise of Ukraine’s navy.

    Russian engineers repaired and serviced the submarine and a crew of Ukrainian submariners was trained at Russian naval bases.

    “The sea trials of the Zaporozhye submarine is an important event for the Ukrainian navy,” Defense Minister Dmytro Salamatin said. “Successful sea trials will ensure the revival of Ukraine’s submarine fleet.”

    The trials, scheduled until April 27, will test the submarine’s power plant and other key equipment while sailing on surface.

    Though the submarine was built 40 years ago, the vessel has been upgraded with new equipment and will certainly raise the combat capability of the Ukrainian navy.

    Submarines of this type are most efficient in the Black Sea as they feature low radar and noise signatures.

    Russia, Bulgaria, and Romania also have one submarine each in the Black Sea.

    Foxtrot was an excellent sub for its time, but then so was the Mig-21 an excellent fighter for its time.

    In both cases the time has passed... if it is all you have then a upgrade makes sense, but it is not something to crow about.

    Ukrainian Fleet Should Be Compatible With NATO Systems - Poroshenko

    Petro Poroshenko wants Ukrainian Navy ships to be compatible with the NATO system.

    KIEV (Sputnik) – Ukrainian Navy ships should be domestically-built, modern and compatible with the NATO infrastructure, spokesperson Svyatoslav Tsegolko quoted President Petro Poroshenko as saying Friday.

    Poroshenko's spokesperson Svyatoslav Tsegolko wrote in his Twitter:

    “The president [said] while in Odessa: our fleet should be modern and compatible with NATO warships. The priority should be given to building new ships in Ukraine.”


    In December 2014, Ukraine abandoned its non-aligned status and sought to join NATO. Poroshenko stated that Ukraine would finalize its decision to join the military bloc within five to six years.

    Despite Kiev's aspirations to become part of the alliance, NATO officials have repeatedly stressed that the country would need to implement a wide range of reforms before being considered for bloc membership.

    Speaking at February’s security conference in Munich, NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg said he strongly believed in partnering non-member countries, but warned that many partners do not become members.

    On April 7, 2014, Kiev launched a military operation in Ukraine's east aimed at suppressing growing independence movements among local citizens.

    NATO regulations do not allow countries involved in ongoing territorial disputes to become members.

    The post 'twas more to make a mockery of the Ukrops. Of course they still have a base in Odessa, but their capabilities are extremely low. If someone saw the potential for new Ukrop ship(s), then I am sure they could buy one with someone else's money of course.

    "The missile cruiser Ukrayina will soon be on sale, Ukrainian Navy Chief Vice Admiral Sergey Haiduk was quoted by the country's media as saying. "The cruiser Ukrayina is a piece that has already been broken off from the state, and it will be sold," Haiduk said, adding that the money made from the sale will be allocated for the construction of new naval ships and boats. According to Haiduk, the main reason for the sale of the cruiser is the fact that almost 80 percent of its weapons were made in the Soviet era. He explained that the ship features navigation equipment and arms that are not produced in Ukraine. In addition, the Ukrainian Navy has a spate of problems related to the infrastructure for the cruiser's deployment, Haiduk added. It is worth noting that Kiev has repeatedly tried to sell the cruiser to no avail. The Ukrayina is a Slava-class cruiser ordered by the Soviet Union in the early 1980s. The vessel was laid down in 1983 and launched in 1990 just before the collapse of the Soviet Union."

    If one has enough money, it is definitely possible to convert a rusting unserviceable ship into a somewhat functioning ship (i.e. Varyag and Baku). Problem for the Ukrops stems from trying find a buyer. Money to buy it will probably go to fund Ukrop shenanigans in the Donbass before anything else.

    Depends how far did the rust go, if its very extensive no amount of money will help you, you would have to replace big portion of whole damn hull.. and thats just out of question. I mean its easier to build new ship in that case. But judging by this photo its in quite horrid condition, again proper inspection is required to determine state of the hull, but it doesnt look bright at all.

    "The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence plans to purchase up to 20 new armoured patrol boats for the Ukraine Coast Guard during the next three years, according to an official spokesman. The new vessels, designated ‘Gurza-M’, will be built in the Lenin Kuznitsa shipyard hear Kiev and are designed for the protection of seaports, rivers and territorial waters.

    The patrol boats will have the length of 23.7m and able to reach speeds of up to 25kts, with a maximum range of 700 miles. Armament includes two remote-controlled 30mm Katran-M weapon systems and small arms. Currently the Ukrainian Navy has two such boats in its service, delivered in November 2015. According to an official spokesman of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence, in addition to the Gurza-M, up to seven ‘Lan’ fast missile boats may be purchase.



    Government plans also include the provision of funds to complete the development of the Centaur amphibious assault boats. The annexation of Crimea resulted in the significant reduction of the Ukrainian Coast Guard fleet, as a number of vessels were seized by Russia. This has brought about a number of procurement programmes aimed at building up naval and coast guard forces. In November last year it was reported that the Ukrainian Navy and State Border Service could be merged into the State Border Guard Service in a bid to improve maritime security."

    "Ukrainian Navy will be reinforced with three new «Kentavr» fast assault crafts designed by the State Research & Design Shipbuilding Centre and produced by the Leninska Kuznya (Kiev).

    The fast assault craft «Kentavr» (Centaur) – is armored amphibious assault ship built for the Ukrainian Navy and foreign customer. Fast and secret delivery of marines or special forces, fire-support of land flank under engagement in littoral and inland waters (estuaries, rivers and water-storage basins) at the range from safe port up to 100 miles.



    «Kentavr» is a further development based on armored boat «Gurza-M», in comparison with which «Kentavr» has extended functionality for specific tasks. According to the manufacturer, in contrast to the Gurza and Gurza-M, Kentavr has extended functions to execute special tasks and solve complicated tasks in sea and river water zones through combat or by transporting 32 assault troopers."

    New uniform for Ukrainian sailors. It is made in gray-blue-black tones and resembles working uniforms similar to those of the US Navy.
