TASS: Admiral Makarov may become the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet instead of cruiser Moskva

After the death of the cruiser Moskva, the missile frigate Admiral Makarov, one of the three frigates of the far sea zone of project 11356, may become the new flagship of the Black Sea Fleet.

“So far, the choice has been made in favor of Admiral Makarov,” said a TASS source close to the power structures of Crimea.

However, there is no official information about this yet.

Another source of the agency noted that last autumn it was planned to make the project 23900 ship Mitrofan Moskalenko the flagship. He noted that the infrastructure for its deployment in Sevastopol was being prepared.

Recall that the "Admiral Makarov" is part of the 30th division of surface ships. The transfer of the frigate to the Navy took place on December 27, 2017.

Last summer, the Admiral Makarov, together with the cruiser Moskva, took part in military exercises of the Russian Federation in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
