Ukrainian forces struck the Russian naval base in Sevastopol

Wed Sep 13 11:42:50 CEST 2023 Timsen

Ukrainian forces struck the Russian naval base in Sevastopol, in Russian-occupied Crimea 150 miles south of the Ukraine front line on Sep 13, 2023. Fires were raging across a drydock that exploded in the early morning, which cradled two warships, the Ropucha-class amphibious vessel 'Minsk' and the Kilo-class submarine 'Rostov on Don'. The Black Sea Fleet could lose two more of its roughly 30 large ships—ships it can’t replace until Russia’s wider war on Ukraine ends and Turkey reopens the Bosphorus Strait connecting the Black Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. A nighttime drone-boat attack on the landing ship 'Olenegorsky Gornyak' in Novorossiysk, a port in southern Russia just 70 miles east of Russian-occupied Crimea, brought to four the number of major Black Sea Fleet warships the Ukrainian navy definitely has put out of action. The losses include the landing ship 'Saratov', blasted by a ballistic missile in March 2022; the cruiser 'Moskva', holed by an anti-ship missile the following month; the rescue ship 'Vasily Bekh', another victim of an anti-ship missile; and then the 'Olenegorsky Gornyak', which entered a drydock a few days after the Ukrainian attack—and may be out of the war, for good. The Ukrainians also have sank or badly damaged several Russian patrol boats and landing craft—and also recently ejected Russian forces from a pair of captured Ukrainian oil platforms that the Russians had been using as naval outposts in the western Black Sea. The sinkings and raids are a remarkable feat for a Ukrainian fleet that, after scuttling its sole frigate in the early hours of the Russian invasion in February 2022, apparently has just one large ship left: an aging landing ship that has been hiding out near the mouth of the Dnipro River and occasionally lobbing short-range rockets at Russian forces. The Ukrainian navy now effectively is a shipless navy, but no less dangerous for its lack of large hulls. Between its locally-made Neptune anti-ship missiles and Western-made Harpoon ASMs, as well as its missile-armed TB-2 drones and one-way drone boats, the Ukrainian navy isn’t just holding the Russian Black Sea Fleet at bay, it actively is beating back the fleet. Russian warships staging from Crimea are under constant assault; as of last month, ships in Russia proper are at risk, too. When Russian warships leave port, they do so briefly—usually only long enough to launch a few cruise missiles at Ukrainian cities. The Russian fleet’s security is going to get worse before it gets better. The number and variety of deep-strike weapons with which Ukrainian forces can attack the fleet steadily are growing. The Ukrainian industry is developing a new thousand-mile cruise missile; and the administration of U.S. president Joe Biden reportedly has signaled it will donate to Ukraine Army Tactical Missile System ballistic rockets that range as far as 190 miles. Either prospective new weapon could hit Sevastopol from the Ukrainian side of the front line. And the steady drumbeat of Ukrainian attacks on Russian ships is clear evidence that Ukrainian intelligence has no problem pinpointing the ships’ locations.

Crimea to become center of Russian shipbuilding

Sat Apr 09 10:53:51 CEST 2016 arnekiel

Russia’s arms program will start to decrease in size after 2020. The businesses that currently operate in the defense industry should already think about the expansion of their “civil” production, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said when paying a visit to a shipyard in Crimea that used to be powerful and promising in the past. Shipbuilding in Crimea in an advanced state of decay Pravda.Ru met chairman of the All-Russia movement for the support of the fleet, Mikhail Nenashev, to speak about the state of affairs in the shipbuilding industry in the Crimea. During the Ukrainian era in the history of Crimea, the shipbuilding industry of the peninsula had been lost and forgotten. Routine repairs would not be conducted, equipment would not be upgraded either. “The Ukrainian period has led to the decline of shipbuilding and ship repair in Crimea,” Mikhail Nenashev said. http://www.hellenicshippingnews.com/crimea-to-become-center-of-russian-shipbuilding/

Ukraine to ban crew who have called at Russian-held Crimean ports

Tue Feb 16 15:18:14 CET 2016 arnekiel

Black Sea shipping could face a serious crewing conundrum with news that Ukrainian authorities are looking to hand out three-year bans to any foreign crewmember who has called at Crimean ports held by Russia. The internationally recognised Ukrainian territory of Crimea was annexed by the Russian Federation two years ago, a dispute that has brought relations between the two nations to a new low. Authorities in Ukraine are now reported to be compiling a black list of all crew who have called at the Russian-held ports such as Sevastopol. http://splash247.com/ukraine-to-ban-crew-who-have-called-at-russian-held-crimean-ports/
