Грабили более 10 лет: как Россия обворовывала флот Украины после 1991 года

The Russian Federation, after Ukraine gained Independence, plundered the Ukrainian navy for years.

Speaker of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Dmitry Pletenchuk spoke about this in an interview with Channel 24.

Russian plunder of the Ukrainian fleet

As Pletenchuk said, the first thefts by Russia occurred during the redistribution of the Black Sea Fleet, when the Russian Federation wanted to seize all the objects that were important for the occupying state. Some things, explains the speaker of the Ukrainian Navy, were simply stolen by the Russians, like, for example, the only aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov.

Dmitry Pletenchuk says that the Russian Federation disembarked the Ukrainian part of the crew and overtook the ship Admiral Kuznetsov for itself.

The second robbery of Ukraine in the fleet occurred already in 2014, when the Russian Black Sea Fleet blocked Ukrainian ships in the bays. Then the invaders captured some of the ships, although they did not use them.

— So they plundered for more than 10 years. From part — removed equipment for use on their ships, and then destroyed the actually empty ships or used them as targets for surface firing, — he said.

As a representative of the Ukrainian Navy says, the situation with the large landing ship Konstantin Olshansky, which was dismantled for 9 years, became unique, but subsequently the Russians decided to restore the said ship, since it turned out to be easier than repairing a similar BDK Minsk.

At the same time, as of now, the large landing craft Konstantin Olshansky has not entered the Black or Azov Sea.

Day of the Navy of the Ukrainian Armed Forces

Recall that on July 7, Ukrainian sailors celebrate their professional holiday — Day of the Naval Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

During the great war, Ukraine demonstrated its capabilities at sea, even though Russia had significant advantages in the navy. Ukrainian naval drones played a major role in repelling Russian domination in the Black Sea. Facts ICTV previously wrote about the role these unmanned boats played in the Russian-Ukrainian war.
