It was an unplanned "success". They exceeded their performance quotas. In all seriousness it's a great example of why hanging on to Soviet-era large surface combatants with minimal upgrades and repairs doesn't work. The VMF needs to face the reality that their future fleet is going to be a mix of 22350s and 20380s, with maybe some 22350Ms in the next decade.Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, Commander-in-Chief of VMF has reported that the VMF "successfully completed all the tasks of combat and operational training set for 2022". As H I Sutton states does this include the sinking of the Slava Class cruiser Moskva?
There also needs to be an increased focus on naval armaments including modern torpedoes and mines, and modern minesweepers.
