The ongoing conflict in Ukraine, fraught with serious destabilization of the country, affects Russian interests, among which the fate of the Black Sea is in one of the first places fleethis status in Crimea and historical The main base is Sevastopol.

The struggle for the future of the Black Sea Fleet began on April 5, 1992, when the decree of the President of Ukraine Leonid Kravchuk “On Urgent Measures for the Construction of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” was signed. In accordance with it, the former Soviet Black Sea Fleet was transferred under the jurisdiction of Kiev, and on the basis of its forces stationed on Ukrainian territory (this meant practically on the basis of the entire Black Sea Fleet), the Naval Forces of Ukraine were to be immediately created. The right to such a decision in Kiev was not.

Moreover, at that time, the fleet was part of the still existing United Armed Forces of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS Joint Armed Forces) and was part of the CIS Navy, commanded by fleet admiral Vladimir Chernavin.

Moscow reacted to this step: On April 7 of 1992, the President of the Russian Federation, Boris Yeltsin, issued a counter decree, according to which the Black Sea Fleet, on the contrary, was placed under the jurisdiction of Russia. To resolve the crisis that has arisen, the Kremlin proposed by way of negotiations, during which the two decrees mentioned were suspended.

A long diplomatic trade began, complicated by the situation “on the spot”. Kiev inclined the sailors of the Black Sea Fleet to take the Ukrainian oath, trying to "Ukrainize" the fleet, and put Moscow before the fact.

Later, Ukraine turned to tougher actions: as the former deputy foreign minister of Russia and former ambassador to Kiev, Yuriy Dubinin, recalled in her article: “April 8, 1994, the Ukrainian military attempted to detain the Cheleken hydrographic vessel that was carrying out planned work in the port of Odessa maintenance of navigation equipment. On the night of 10 on 11 on April, a detachment of Ukrainian military personnel numbering up to 120 made a violent seizure of the 318 division of the Black Sea Fleet reserve ships with a coast base, communications center, property, weapons. The personnel of the coastal base was transported to the village of Chebanka in 10 km from Odessa. This created a critical situation. ”

As a result of subsequent negotiations, an oral agreement was reached on the basing of the ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol.

15 April 1994 was signed the Russian-Ukrainian agreement on a phased settlement of the problems of the Black Sea Fleet, where the proportion of the section on which Russia was to receive 80-85% of ships and fleet ships was established. At the same time, Russian diplomats came to an understanding of the need to link the fleet agreement with a political treaty between Russia and Ukraine. The Ukrainian side, meanwhile, expressed a desire to sign a political treaty separately from the agreement on the Black Sea Fleet, leaving this problem hanging in the air.

Negotiations began anew. As a result, 9 June 1995 was signed an agreement in Sochi, according to which the Russian Black Sea Fleet and the Ukrainian Navy are based separately; Sevastopol was assigned the status of the main base of the Russian Black Sea fleet. Property issues were subject to settlement, taking into account the previously reached agreement on the division of property in half. Ships and vessels were divided in proportion of 81,7% - to Russia, 18,3% - to Ukraine.

28 May 1997 in Kiev signed the final intergovernmental agreements on the status and conditions of the Russian Black Sea Fleet's stay on the territory of Ukraine, on the parameters of the division of the Black Sea Fleet, on mutual settlements related to the division of the Russian fleet and on the Ukrainian territory.

The division of the fleet, coupled with a significant reduction in military spending compared with Soviet times, led to a significant deterioration in the balance of forces in the Black Sea and Mediterranean theater of operations. In 1991, the Black Sea Fleet of the USSR Navy numbered about 100 thousand personnel and 60 thousand workers and office workers, and included 835 ships and vessels of almost all existing classes. Including: 28 submarines, 2 anti-submarine cruisers, 6 missile cruisers and large anti-submarine ships of the 20st rank, 40 BOD of the 3nd rank, destroyers and patrol ships of the 30nd rank, about 70 patrol vessels of the 50rd rank, 400 small missile ships and boats, about XNUMX minesweepers, XNUMX landing ships and boats, more than XNUMX aircraft and marine helicopters aviation. The fleet consisted of 2 divisions of ships (anti-submarine and landing), 1 division of submarines, 2 divisions of aviation (fighter and naval missile-carrying aviation), 1 division of coastal defense, dozens of individual brigades, regiments, battalions, divisions, companies and batteries.

Every year, through the Black Sea straits, up to one hundred warships and ships went out into the world ocean. The fleet had an extensive network of basing from Izmail to Batumi (Izmail, Odessa, Nikolaev, Ochakov, Kiev, Chernomorskoe, Donuzlav, Sevastopol, Feodosiya, Kerch, Novorossiysk, Poti, etc.), its parts were deployed in Ukraine, Crimea, Moldova, Russia , Georgia, North Caucasian autonomies.


Black Sea Fleet: 23 Year of Adventure

Russian Black Sea Fleet in Crimea


According to experts of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, by the beginning of 1992. the value of the entire Black Sea Fleet property, including warships, exceeded 80 billion US dollars.

Since that time, fleet forces have declined radically - almost tenfold. Today, the Black Sea Fleet includes about 40 warships and boats, as well as several dozen auxiliary vessels. The number of coastal aviation and coastal defense forces also declined many times. The Black Sea fleet that previously dominated the Black Sea and competed with the combined forces of NATO in the Mediterranean is now inferior in size to the Turkish Navy in the Black Sea theater of operations (although it surpasses the fleets of the other Black Sea countries combined and also has a higher impact potential than the Turkish Navy the presence of powerful rocket ships in its composition).

At the same time, the situation on the southern borders of Russia has become much more hectic. In 2008, the Black Sea Fleet had to perform combat missions during the Five-Day War with Georgia, and in 2012-13 the ships of the Black Sea Fleet together with the forces of other Russian fleets ensured supplies of weapons, military equipment, spare parts for Syrian forces waging war with radical Islamists in their own country. The number and duration of trips to the sea have increased dramatically, months-long combat services and trips to certain areas of the world’s ocean have returned to practice. In fact, on the basis of the Black Sea Fleet, a permanent Mediterranean compound of the Russian Navy is deployed, as part of which the ships of all the other fleets of Russia are regularly deployed. Thus, the Black Sea Fleet is once again becoming a tool designed not only to protect the borders, but also to protect the interests of the country on distant frontiers.

However, the fleet has not yet received new combat units, its combat capability is supported by the repair and limited modernization of existing ships. According to the plans, in the nearest 3-4 of the year, six submarines of the 636 project and the same number of frigates of the 11356Р / M project, which are currently under construction, should be transferred to the Black Sea Fleet. This replenishment will be the first stage in the modernization of the Black Sea Fleet shipboard personnel. In general, the existing plans provide for the maintenance of the existing list of the Black Sea Fleet with the gradual replacement of obsolete ships and auxiliary ships over the next 10-15 years.

The main problem of the fleet, however, all of the past, remained the indefinite status of his stay in the Crimea - the original Black Sea Fleet basing agreement provided for the withdrawal of the fleet in 2017, while during the reign of Viktor Yushchenko it was repeatedly announced that the agreement would not be extended. However, in the 2010 year, after Viktor Yanukovych came to power, an agreement was signed in Kharkov on the further basing of the Black Sea Fleet in the Crimea - up to 2042, with the possibility of extending for another 5 years.

Nevertheless, at the same time, a new fleet base is being built in Novorossiysk, since there was no guarantee that Viktor Yanukovych’s successor would confirm the decisions made by his predecessor. The riots in Ukraine in the winter of 2013-14 and the coming to power of the “government of Maidan” only confirmed these concerns. At the same time, taking into account the events in the Crimea itself, it can be expected that the positions of the Black Sea Fleet will be strengthened there. This would be an exceptionally successful solution, because for a number of reasons, from meteorology to geography, Novorossiysk cannot serve as the main base of the Navy.

Sevastopol as the main base today is the best port on the entire Black Sea coast, if not even in the Black and Mediterranean Sea basins, and the point here is not only in the merits of the base itself, but also in its location practically “above” the geographical center of the Black Sea. The convenience of the location allows the fleet with the support of Sevastopol to solve almost any task.

There is no doubt that this is understood not only in Moscow. So, the disputes over the Crimea and the basing of the fleet will continue.

      So, disputes over the Crimea and for the deployment of the fleet will continue.

      There will be no disputes, definitely. Only conversations can continue beyond Crimea, but there will be no dispute, Russian Crimea, and that’s all.

    Competent and detailed layout. Thank.
    I think that in the next few days everything will be decided in principle and Russia will get the opportunity to engage in military construction under normal conditions.
    The Black Sea Fleet is the basis of our maritime security on the Black Sea and Mediterranean theater of operations.

    six submarines of project 636 and the same number of frigates of project 11356P / M,

    As for frigates, confidence is no longer there. The GEM was made for them in Nikolaev. While they seem to have done two, one definitely is. Against the backdrop of recent events, Ukraine is unlikely to continue supplying power plants for frigates under construction. A couple of years will pass until they find and make a replacement. Or there will be a break in production for the duration of the conflict in any case.

    What I’ll write now, I know many will not like, but nevertheless it is necessary to look at things realistically, therefore I’m ready for the minuses.
    So: the modern Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation:
    the flagship ship-RRC project 1164 "Moscow" was handed over to the fleet in 1982 (age-32), in 1999 it was repaired, in the process of repair the P-500 "Basalt" anti-ship missiles were replaced with the P-1000 "Vulcan" anti-ship missiles.

    GRKR "Moskva" on the roadstead of Donuzlav, where it takes part in blocking the ships of the Ukrainian fleet, 06.03.2014/XNUMX/XNUMX
    SKR project 01190 "Smetlivy" was handed over to the fleet in 1969 (age-44 years). The expected service life is up to 2017. Armed with 8 missile launchers X-35 "Uran". The disadvantages include weak weapons: 2x2 PU SAM "Volna" (naval version of the S-125)
    SKR project 1135M "Pytlivy" was commissioned to the fleet in 1981 (age-33 years). Renovated at the end of last year. According to some reports, it has not been completely repaired, only brought to a state of safe exit to the sea, which, however, did not prevent the ship from participating in supporting the Olympics in Sochi, and now it is taking part in blocking the Ukrainian fleet. It has a limited combat value, like an ASW ship, since it does not carry anti-ship missiles and has weak air defense: 2x2 OSA-MA-2 air defense missile launchers (40 9M33 missiles).

    TFR "Pytlivy" after renovation, Sevastopol, 04.01.2014/XNUMX/XNUMX
    Also in the fleet are:
    BOD project 1134B "Kerch" - delivered to the fleet in 1974 (age-40 years). The last time he went to sea in June 2011, when he carried out a two-week tracking in the Black Sea for the US Navy missile cruiser "Monterrey". At present it is used in Sevastopol as a floating barracks, and also serves as the flagship of the fleet during the period when the Mrskva GRKR is on military campaigns.
    SKR project 1135 "Ladny" - delivered to the fleet in 1980 (age-34 years). It is currently under renovation and will be under repair until the end of this year. Autumn (October-November) is an optimistic period that is hard to believe. It also has the same disadvantages as
    "Inquisitive.
    So, from 5 ships of 1-2 rank, 3 are combat-ready, another is under repair, 1 is not operational.
    Submarine forces:
    B-871 "Alrosa" - delivered to the Navy in 1990 (age-24). From July 2011 to August 2012, it underwent scheduled repairs in Kronstadt. He is currently in the OPB. According to some reports, it is not capable of fighting. If this is true, then we have no submarine forces on the Black Sea!
    Also on the Black Sea Fleet is one more diesel-electric submarine B-380 "Hero of Sevastopol Artyom Titarenko" of project 641B "Som" - delivered to the fleet in 1981. The boat is in the floating dock "PD-16" in the South Bay of Sevastopol, awaiting a decision on its further fate, i.e. completely incapable of combat.

            DEPL B-261 Novorossiysk on 20.2.2014
            Also this year, the Black Sea Fleet plans to transfer: the Rostov-on-Don diesel-electric submarine, laid down on 21.11.2011/17.08.2012/2014, launching presumably in May, and the Stary Oskol diesel-electric submarine, laid down on XNUMX/XNUMX/XNUMX, launching presumably in June XNUMX, delivery to the fleet in November, which is unlikely.
            From surface ships: Project 11356 frigate "Admiral Grigorovich", laid down on December 18.12.2010, 8, launching presumably today, which is in a high degree of readiness, and in the fall it is planned to begin mooring tests; similar frigates "Admiral Essen", laid down on July 2011, 29, on which the bow block and the rear of the hull are already docked, and the "Admiral Makarov", laid down on February 2012, XNUMX, which, incidentally, is also unlikely.

            frigate "Admiral Grigorovich"
            Also in November of this year, it was planned to hand over to the Black Sea Fleet the frigate of project 22350 "Admiral of the Fleet Kasatonov", laid down on November 26, 2009, which is almost unbelievable, given the deplorable state of affairs with its "sister ship" frigate "Admiral of the Soviet Union Fleet Gorshkov" the AU has not yet been installed and it has not yet entered sea trials and which they plan to transfer to the fleet already in December this year.
            Also, by the fall, the Black Sea Fleet is planning to transfer 2 PrDK of project 21980 "Grachonok"
            Thus, at the output we have: 1 DEPL of the 636.3 project, we hope for 2; 1 frigate of the 11356 project, we also hope for 2 and 2

              Of these ships, the real combat value are:
              BDK project 775 "Konstantin Olshansky" handed over to the fleet in 1985, and bolted in Donuzlav, incl. and for participation in the "Syrian Express", as well as as a temporary replacement for the similar Russian large landing craft "Caesar Kunnikov" being repaired

              And also the IPC of the 1124M U209 Ternopil project put into operation on February 15 of 2006 of the year, blocked in the Northern Bay of Sevastopol.

              IPC project 1124-M U205 “Lutsk” put into operation on December 30 1993 of the year, blocked in Streletskaya Bay.

                The IPC of the 1241.2 project (Lightning-2) U208 Khmelnitsky, which went into operation in the 1985 year, blocked in the Northern Bay of Sevastopol, and the 3 minesweeper: 2 of the 266M Aquamarine project U310 and Chernny U311 Cherny may be of some value. ", As well as the raid minesweeper of the 1258" Korund "project U360" Genіchesk ", blocked in Donuzlav.

                IPC project 1241.2 ("Lightning-2") U208 "Khmelnitsky"
                All other warships of the Ukrainian fleet can be safely attributed to scrap metal: for example, the PSKR of the 1124P U206 Vinnitsya project, commissioned in 1976 on 11 on November 2007 of the year, fell into a storm and received serious damage to the stem, from which it is awaiting repair and is in reserve at the base in Donuzlav.

                Missile boat project 12411T ("Lightning") U155 "Pridniprov'ya", formerly R-54, was commissioned to the fleet in 1982 and is armed with 4 outdated anti-ship missiles P-15M "Termit".

                The situation is similar to the RCA of the 206 MP U153 Priluki project, the former P-262 built in the 1979 year and equipped with the same P-15M anti-ship missiles, all the ships of this project have long been put to the needles, except for the 2 on CFL.

                The average landing ship of the 773 U401 Kirovograd project, the former KFOR-137, was delivered to the fleet in the 1971 year.
                About the virtues of the Ukrainian pidvodnoy choven U01 "Zaporizhzhia" modestly keep silent ...

                Not in the best condition and auxiliary ships:

      Quote: Novel 1977
      What I’ll write now, I know many will not like, but nevertheless it is necessary to look at things really,

      Roman, good afternoon! The truth may be liked or disliked, but from this it does not cease to be TRUTH.
      A lot of work has been done, almost on every unit, I read it with great pleasure, but the conclusions ... I would like more.
      By the way, the Grigorovich was launched today. The granddaughter of the last naval minister of the Russian Empire became the frigate's godmother. They will finish the construction afloat, work on the basis of the BF 128 BrNK and through military service in Mediterranean in early 2015, they will arrive at the Black Sea Fleet.
      With boats, I think it will be faster and easier.
      But the author forgot about the main base of the submarines of the Black Sea Fleet, Balaclava. But in vain! This is an exceptionally convenient bay, protected from winds and storms, with a depth of 17-20 meters, underwater adits for parking submarines (object 825 GTS).

      From a military point of view, "Object 825 GTS" was a combined underground water channel with a dry dock, repair shops, warehouses for storing torpedo and mine weapons. Combined water underground channel could accommodate xnumx submarines and repair them if necessary. Its depth reaches 8 meters, width - from 8 to 12m, and the height of the channel arch - 18 meters. The total area of ​​all rooms and walkways of the plant is 100 square m, water surface underground - 3 thousand square meters. m. The channel length is 380 meters, the length of the dock is 110 meters.
      Object 825 "garn lads" was robbed a lot, so it will have to be restored. But there is no better refuge for the SP. So new boats - a new base!

    there is an opinion that during the transition of the Ukrainian Navy, the submarine "Zaporozhye" will be sent to the shipyard "Zvezdochka" for modernization and installation of new strike weapons !!!
    People who know please tell me if this is so ?! And what can they supply for the new strike weapons to the Zaporozhye diesel-electric submarine ?!

    So, disputes over the Crimea and for the deployment of the fleet will continue.

    There will be no disputes, definitely. Only conversations can continue beyond Crimea, but there will be no dispute, Russian Crimea, and that’s all.

    RUSSIA is not evil, she just has a great memory!
    To everyone who offended her, she firmly pinched the body parts they did not need. This "friends", we must remember, also train your memory!
    Long live the Russian Crimea!

    From the comments it is clear that the Navy, blocked in the Crimea, are already considered as part of the Black Sea Fleet winked However, I suppose that a significant part of the aircraft will be withdrawn by the Ukrainian. crews out of order or even flooded. In the event that Crimea passes to the RF. On the same "Ternopil" the crew is formed from the same Galicians as the core of the Maidav ultras.

    Do not be afraid xomaNN, let them flood, ours will later rise. The main thing is that banderlogs do not get it. And it will be necessary to seriously deal with crews from Galicians before releasing them back to Galicia.
