Confusion among authoritative sources concerning the composision of the Ukrainian fleet in the 1990s is nearly perfect. More than 20 years after independence, some of the details are still confused among apparently authoritative sources. Many units were renamed post-2002 for reasons that remain obscure, futher confusing matters. Some units were used for tasks other than their original design. For instance, U500 Donbas, a Project 304 Amur class repair ship, was repurposed as a command ship.
By 2014 only a handful of these ships were servicable.

The Russian defense ministry said 22 March 2014 "St. Andrew's flags of the Russian Navy had been raised on 54 out of 67 vessels of the Ukrainian Navy, including eight warships and one submarine". In the course of the March 2014 annexation of Crimea, by one account Russia seized some 20 or 25 Ukrainian ships, including the Grisha V class corvettes Lutsk and Ternopil, the Molniya-2 class torpedo boat Khmelnitskiy, the Foxtrot-class submarine Zaporizhia, and the command ship Slavutych. The status of another Grisha II, the Vinnitsya, the Molniya-2 class torpedo boat Uzgorod were unclear, but some sources report they were also under the control of Russian invaders (from 22 March 2014). This would leave Kiev with the Hetman Sahaidachny, a Krivak III Patrol Frigate, a pair of 100 ton landing craft, and the 40 ton Project 1400 Zhuk-class Skadovsk speed-boat.

C = commissioned into Ukrainian service
[x] = inactive
# overall, a rather confused and confusing picture
## various sources have wildly differing estimates, reflecting low readiness rates.
The 2014 numbers are high end estimates, while the 2015 number is a low end estimate
