        It is not reported whether the Ukrainian Naval Forces will be involved in the exercises.

        And what is there to attract then? Inflatable boats? The ships will not be built soon for the Ukrainian Navy. Some plans.


        "Vladimir the Great" will be completed according to the revised project of a multifunctional frigate of the near sea zone.

        The Ministry of Defense announced its intention to finalize the program for the creation of a domestic ship according to the corvette program of Project 58250, class "Vladimir the Great".

        Now the possibility of finalizing the project, increasing its capabilities and completing the construction of the ship, which should become the flagship of the Ukrainian fleet, is being considered. Oleksandr Mironyuk, Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine, announced such plans to Defense Express.


        “Now the Ministry of Defense has initiated a program to complete the construction of a national corvette based on a new reformatted and revised project. In terms of their displacement and capabilities, project 58250 corvettes are closer to ships that are now classified into a separate subclass - multifunctional frigates of the near sea zone. Therefore, there is an option to make the appropriate changes to "Vladimir the Great" and get a replacement for the frigate "Getman Sagaidachny", which has been in operation for twenty-seven years, "said Alexander Mironyuk.

        From the side of Defense Express, we note that the project 58250 corvettes have a displacement of two thousand six hundred and fifty tons. For comparison, Turkish Ada-class corvettes - two thousand thirty-two tons,

            there are enough NATO ships without Ruins.

            Let's not forget that today US strategic missile carriers , relocated to Norway, made their first patrol flight over the Barents Sea with the Norwegians.

        Without them there will be exercises, and who is there to be called? "Sagaidachny" is written off, the missile "Priluki" is laid up without a single missile on board. There are simply no missiles. Rubber boats in the sea during "an attack by enemy aircraft, surface ships and submarines" are needed, like a fifth wheel of a cart ..

    We have to create a serious striking force in order to keep the enemy away from our shores.
    So that they would not even have illusions that they would be able to do something, would have time to do and remain whole after that.
    The loaves are strong, always ready, but everything else should correspond to the tasks that may arise.
    Obviously, it won't be easy ... but it is necessary that EVERYONE bore this burden of responsibility and difficulties ...

      In fact, if you put on it a new radar and avionics (like Israel offers, and maybe someone else), it practically reaches the level of the 4th generation. The only thing that cannot be improved is a small range and a combat load, 4 missiles are not enough today.
