Since the beginning of the war, Ukrainian forces have eliminated 18 Russian ships and boats, including the flagship cruiser Moskva (Moscow).

On July 1, 2023, the Russian Navy established a new Azov Military Maritime District with its headquarters in the occupied Ukrainian port city of Mariupol. It is likely to focus on supporting rear and counter-guerrilla tasks.

Under the command of the Black Sea Fleet, the district will include eight combat ships, including three modern Karakurt-class corvettes capable of launching Kalibr cruise missiles.
