Russian Navy still trying to decide on overhaul for Blacksea Fleet flagship Moskva.
Three-year repair would extend 35-year-old project 1164 guided missile cruiser’s life by five years.
Previously, it was assumed that the cruiser “Moskva” in 2018 will stand on a three-year repair at the Sevastopol Marine Plant. However, this has not happened yet. According to source of Interfax, “there is no money to repair Moskva”. In the second half of 2015, the cruiser was the head of the permanent operational unit of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean, where he covered the Russian air base Khmeimim in Syria with his own means of air defense.
