On Friday several units of the Russian fleet stationed in the Mediterranean crossed Gibraltar to return to Russia.
They are the frigate Admiral Grigorovich (545), the corvettes Stoikiy (545) and Soobrazitelny (531) of the Steregushchiy class and the tanker Kola.
As of today, therefore, the units of the Russian Navy present in the Mediterranean should be:
- Frigate Admiral Gorshkov, armed with hypersonic missiles
- Corvette Orekhovo-Zuyevo
- Minesweeper Vladimir Emelyanov
- Krasnodar Kilo-class submarine
- Yuri Ivanov intelligence ship
Until April 22, all of these units except the frigate Admiral Gorshkov were reported to be in Tartus

Some very interesting happenings.
-Still no Adm Gorshkov
-Krasnodar in port
-Yuriy Ivanov is back (last seen in Jan 2023)
-Oiler KOLA appears to be in port (length + image)
-Oiler KAMA is gone
Does this mean it was the KAMA which left the Med with the warships? pic.twitter.com/8mN01x5uiQ
