>News From Black Sea Navies

>Ukraine’s sole submarine the Foxtrot (Project 641) class Zaporizya has entered into a dry dock for an overhaul. It is obvious that she needs the overhaul badly. According to Jane’s Fighting Ships, she is still in commission, but there are no reports of activity since 2004.

In the mean time the flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Slava (Project 1164) class cruiser Moskva has left the dry dock recently. There are rumors that she will be permanently posted to the Far East Fleet. If the rumors should turn out to be true, then Russians will really need to commission new ships pretty soon.
