Sources: Military Periscope, The Military Balance, Combat Fleets

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.

A947 Yany Kapu - Raid tug Project 498 - YT Harbor tug

This tug was built back in 1974. During the occupation of Crimea, it was captured by Russian troops, but returned to Ukraine on May 20, 2014, after which, during 2015-2016, it was undergoing repairs in Odessa. Ukraine completed the repairs of the Yany Kapu tug boat, which Russian border guards seized in the Kerch Strait in November 2018. The Army Inform news agency of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported 28 December 2020 "A dock repair of the Yany Kapu tug boat of the Ukrainian Navy has been completed at one of the Ukrainian ship repair enterprises. In fact, it has been possible to restore the combat capability of this vessel from now on it will be able to carry out tasks as intended". So, during the repair work, the ship was cleaned, the defects were corrected, the damaged parts of the hull and deck were replaced, and they were painted. In addition, the gas duct, fuel pumps, fire system valves and compressors were repaired at Yany Kapu. Also, the steering and anchor gear, electrical equipment and interior rooms were repaired in the tug. The name of the vessel originates from the previous name of the city of Krasnoperekopsk in Crimea. Yany Kapu is a city in the north of the occupied Crimea, formerly Krasnoperkopsk. The city was renamed on May 12, 2016, along with other 74 Crimean settlements as part of decommunization. The city was founded in 1932 as an industrial settlement near the bromine manufacturing factory. The status of city it has since 1966. It is not necessary to confuse to historical city Perekop, which after destructions in the time of first world war turned to small village in 25km to north. Yana Kapu is translated from Crimean Tatar as "New Gate". The choice of such a name was then explained by the fact that the Crimean Tatars are the indigenous people of Crimea, and the overwhelming majority of the names that were replaced in Soviet times are Crimean Tatar. The tug was built in 1974 at the Gorokhovets shipyard (Vladimir region of the RSFSR) under the serial number 318 by order of the USSR Navy. Initially, it had the name "RB-308" and was part of the Black Sea Fleet. In the Soviet Union, such tugs entered the fleet under the code "Proteus". They were also called "b / k 1200" and "bull". They were delivered to Cuba, Iraq, the German Democratic Republic and the Federal Republic of Germany. Currently, Project 498 tugs are gradually being decommissioned and replaced with more modern models. The displacement of the Project 498 roadstead tug is 303 tons, length - 29.3 meters, width - 8.3 meters, draft - 3.9 meters. The vessel can reach speeds of up to 11.4 knots (about 21.1 km / h). The cruising range at full speed is 1650 miles (about 3055 kilometers). Swimming autonomy - up to six days. The crew is six people. Tugs of this type are steel single-deck twin-screw diesel tugs. Thanks to the icebreaking bow and anti-ice reinforcement of the plating, such tugs are capable of operating in ice conditions. Their main purpose is the rearrangement and mooring of large-capacity sea vessels of all types in ports and roadsteads. In the USSR, it was part of the 171st group of the DMRSO, based on the Crimean naval base (Lake Donuzlav). After the division of the fleet in 1997, the tug went to Ukraine, it received the tail number U947 and was renamed Krasnoperekopsk in honor of the city in Crimea. After the annexation of Crimea to Russia on March 20, 2014, the Krasnoperekopsk tugboat lowered the Ukrainian flag and raised the Russian flag. However, on May 20, 2014, the tugboat was taken out of the Russian territorial waters and transferred to Ukrainian tugs, Odessa became its new base. In 2015-2016, it was repaired at the Ukraina shipyard in Odessa. On 25 November 2018, Russian border guards detained the Ukrainian tug Yany Kapu and small armored artillery boats Berdiansk and Nikopol en route from Odesa to Mariupol using weapons in the Kerch Strait area. Yany Kapu was one of the three warships seized by the Russian Federation near the Kerch Strait in the Black Sea in November 2018. The Berdyansk, Nikopol, and Yany Kapu were sailing from the Ukrainian port of Odesa to Mariupol, an industrial city on the Sea of Azov when Russian forces opened fire on them and then boarded them. The Russian FSB ship "Don" twice rammed the Ukrainian raid tug "Yani Kapu", as a result of which the main engine, casing and foundry fence were damaged, and the life raft was lost. During the incompetent execution of rams, the Russian "Don" itself received a hole, from which it almost sank. Russia claimed the ships had violated its border, while Ukraine accused Russia of breaking the treaty that guarantees free passage of Ukrainian ships through the strait. It was one of the most severe incidents in the conflict between the two neighbours since 2015. It raised fears that Russia was determined to close the Sea of Azov to Ukrainian vessels as part of its on-going, undeclared war in eastern Ukraine, where it backs and directs two pro-Moscow separatist states. Russia annexed Crimea in the spring of 2014 and completed a bridge across the strait linking the peninsular with the Russian mainland in 2017. In Russia, 24 Ukrainian sailors were accused of "illegal border crossing committed by a group of persons in a preliminary conspiracy or by an organized group, or with the use of violence or with the threat of its use" (Part 3 of Article 322 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). The captured sailors were charged in occupied Crimea and in Russia, as members of an organized criminal group, with illegally crossing the border. They were not recognized as prisoners of war and their military uniforms were seized. In April 2019, Ukraine began international arbitration proceedings against the Russian Federation for the illegal seizure on its part of three Ukrainian naval vessels and 24 members of their crews. The International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea decided to apply interim measures: the court ordered Russia to immediately release the ships and their crew members. The sailors returned to Ukraine on September 7, 2019 as part of the mutual release of the detainees by Ukraine and the Russian Federation. Russia returned the three naval vessels as its goodwill gesture, just before the summit in Paris on December 9, 2019, which mediated by Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel. The ship was in bad condition because it was kept over a year by Russia together with its crew. Displacement: 303 tons Length: 29.3m Beam: 8.3m Draft: 3.09m Full speed: 11.4 knots Range: 1,650 miles at 11 knots Propulsion: 2 diesel engines x 600 h.p., 2 shafts Complement: 6 men Amament: 212.7mm DShKM machine guns
