On the cruiser "Ukraine" held a control engine start

A photo of the engine launch control of the unfinished cruiser "Ukraine" in Nikolaev appeared in the Internet, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

A comment by one of the users: "The view is great running, like in the country of the same name."

It is noted that in 2014, the head of the Mykolaiv region called for the ship to be sold immediately, since “the state doesn’t have enough money to complete the construction, and the maintenance of a cruiser, which has been standing by the shipyard wall for many years, costs six million hryvnias per month”.

Last September, the commander of the Ukrainian Navy, Haiduk, announced that the ship would be sold.

“The cruiser" Ukraine "is a piece broken off from the state, it will be realized, and the proceeds from the sale will go to the construction of new ships and boats," said the Vice-Admiral.

He explained that the ship was designed for navigation instruments that are not manufactured in Ukraine. In addition, "80% of its weapons are Russian-made," said Haiduk.

Help newspaper: “Ukraine” is a Soviet missile cruiser of the Atlant project. The ship was laid in Nikolaev in 1984 year and six years later launched. In the 1993 year, with the division of property of the USSR, a three-quarters cruiser was transferred to Ukraine. Kiev twice made the decision to complete the construction of the ship, its crew was formed and dissolved three times. ”

      too late. I think everything is very bad on the ship. We need a new build, a new generation.

          Sometimes in support of the old one you can throw in so much money that it is easier to make a new one. The question is that this is a rather narrow ship (although I am not a specialist, and generally a land-based person). To provide air defense, or he will be able to drown the aircraft carrier, but it is unlikely that he is "sharpened" for that, but for the barmaley, to suppress a point object on land. That is, you need to look at the concept of fleet development.
          And the ship is really a pity .. We wouldn’t hurt this fourth, of course ..

    Let the owners of the ukram wash away the new scrap metal (or rather firewood) steam it all the same, it constantly breaks, welded to the pier, like "Zaporozhye" and beauty.

    The newest USS Zumwalt destroyer crashed while passing the Panama Canal. About this writes the publication Defense News with reference to a statement by the US Navy.
    A preliminary cause of the breakdown is associated with heat exchangers in the ship’s propulsion system, which provides power to various ship systems.

    According to the publication, Zumwalt, heading to the home port in San Diego, had to be towed to Rodman's base in Panamanian Balboa.

    the maintenance of the cruiser, which has stood at the shipyard wall for many years, costs six million hryvnias a month. ”
    A maximum of 20000 hryvnias for VOKHOR + consumption of the same VOKHOR of water and electricity. Let it be 30, oh well, + 80000. That’s 100000 hryvnias per month. Judging by the appearance of the ship, they no longer spend anything on it. The rest of the money settles in their pockets.
    And I'm curious. If 80 percent. the cruiser’s weapons are doing in Russia, what are they doing in Ukraine? 20 percent remaining, what is it?

    I honestly admit: I read the thread to the middle somewhere, brothers don't blame me if I repeat myself somewhere, but it seems to me that in the 12-13th year it was a question of buying out the last Atlant, but it seems like our specialists went to Nikolaev and concluded that the ship would not only have to be refurbished in full, but that the hull had rotted to hell while standing at the wall of the plant. And it seems, if my memory serves me, for this very reason, plus the fact that the guys with 404 (then it was not quite 404 yet) broke a completely fabulous price at that time - the subject was not purchased.
    On the other hand, I want to say - "GLORY TO GOD !!!" that Ukraine did not finish building this cruiser. Now it would be the most concrete hemorrhoid in the Black Sea basin, in view of the fact that Project 1164 to this day is one of the most powerful in weapons and the fastest (within the class) warships.
    But at the same time it is a pity to contemplate "Atlant", the pinnacle of thought of Soviet engineers, in such a deplorable state

      Alteration of internal equipment will be much cheaper than designing, approving and building a new type of missile cruiser analogue of Project 1164. If I remember correctly, the Russian Navy needs AUG destroyers not just here and now, but yesterday. This means that each such opportunity to introduce another URO cruiser relatively quickly into the fleet is a very very important potential cruiser that cannot be neglected.

    The main task of Atlant is to fight the AUG. But the corvettes of the Caspian flotilla may well fight with the barmaley podudikim. So I strongly doubt that you will roll out a frigate or corvette against the AUG and that you can do something to her. "Calibers" against "Volcanoes" are much inferior as anti-ship missiles.

For example, a scout who is standing somewhere in the White Stone - on pins and needles, and this one can be bought (for an expensive price) and invested in a rusty case rubles. Not sure if it's smart. These boxes are from the last century. Already the architecture is not the same, and the equipment, and the requirements for the ships. We are better off with new ones, well, as there is according to Lenin - "Better less, but better." And this one (honestly, a ship of a very successful project, visited the "Slava") let the Ukrainians let it go - darn torn pants, or there, on the pans ... but you never know what is needed to win the Maidan.

    Kiev twice made the decision to complete the ship, its crew formed and disbanded three times
    Twice the order bearer and three were not given, the frozen artist without an audience ............... nothing to add

      Three sages in one basin, sailed across the sea, in a thunderstorm. The old basin would be stronger, our story would be longer.

    If we already have money for this, for modernization, then it is better to put our Eagles into operation.

      It would be better to restore and modernize all the mothballed "eagles" and "Atlanteans". But I'm not sure that our oligarchic government and the great economists-thieves from the HSE will have the money for this. They have money only to increase their salaries and maintain a whole fleet of expensive German executive cars.

        There are no canning atlants in the Russian Federation. Everything is in order. Only 2 (maybe 3) ships will be introduced from the Orlan, Kirov will be cut for sure, he has trouble with the reactors. And the best thing is to design and build new ships, and not rely on the Soviet legacy.

          Of course it is better to be rich, healthy, beautiful, young and successful. But we live in certain realities. As Comrade Stalin said, "I have no other writers for you." So it is now - the ships are needed yesterday, and while new ones will develop technical specifications, design and build - many years will pass. And these years the old, but formidable Soviet wars will serve the country successfully. You just need to modernize them.
