One of the lots in the tender documents is a diesel submarine from the Project 641, but its name is not indicated. According to Ukrainska Pravda, in the Russian Navy there is only one submarine of this type, and it's Zaporizhia.
We recall that there were 17 Ukrainian Navy vessels, boats and ships, including 11 warships in Crimea. Among them are the large landing ship "Kostyantyn Olshansky", the control ship "Slavutych", anti-submarine corvettes "Ternopil" and "Lutsk", sea trawlers "Cherkasy" and "Chernihiv", a large submarine "Zaporizhya", a rescue tug "Kremenets" and others.
Russia does not recognize any jurisdiction other than its own in the Kerch Strait, nor in nearby areas of the Black Sea that are legally Ukrainian but taken over by Russia following its seizure of Crimea. In a show of defiance, the Moscow City Court promptly ruled to prolong the detention of the 24 Ukrainian sailors by another two months, pending further investigation and trial (TASS, May 27), although ITLOS had prescribed that the trial be suspended and the sailors allowed to return to Ukraine “immediately.” The sailors are charged, under Russia’s criminal code, with aggravated illegal crossing of Russia’s maritime state border, although no country but Russia recognizes such a border.
