Two-thirds of the combat-ready submarines of the Black Sea Fleet of Russia are at sea

At the berths in the South Bay of occupied Sevastopol, there are two submarines of the Varshavyanka project, which make up a third of the active submarines of the Russian Black Sea Fleet

According to Ukrinform, this is reported by Radio Liberty.

In total, the Black Sea Fleet of Russia has six submarines of the Varshavyanka project: B-261 Novorossiysk, B-237 Rostov-on-Don, B-262 Stary Oskol, B-265 Krasnodar, B-268 “Veliky Novgorod” and B-271 “Kolpino”.
