As may be seen on the photo above, the ship crossed the Bosphorus and entered the Black Sea on Wednesday.
'Severomorsk (619), Russian designation's Project 1155 Fregat or Udaloy class - under the NATO classification, the combat vessel of Russia's Northern Fleet entered the Black Sea in the morning of January 9', the message says.
According to the contributor, it is the first time since the annexation of Crimea by Russia that the major warship of such class appears in the Black Sea. Otherwise, it is quite usual for other Russian fleets to deploy landing ships for transportations from Crimea and Novorossiysk to Syria.
The destroyer of Udaloy I class is considered the backbone of Russia's firepower in the off-shore maritime zone.
Udaloy I class is a series of anti-submarine destroyers built for the Soviet Navy, eight of which are currently in service with the Russian Navy. The Russian designation is Project 1155 Fregat. Twelve ships were built between 1980 and 1991, while a thirteenth ship built to a modified design as the Udaloy II class followed in 1999. They complement the Sovremennyy-class destroyer in anti-aircraft warfare and anti-surface warfare operations.
