Ship “Admiral Makarov”/Wikipedia
Russia is strengthening its grouping of ships in the Black Sea. On the morning of May 23, it became known that the frigate Admiral Makarov entered the sea. The Odesa OVA hopes that he will soon meet with Moskva, which was sunk by Ukrainian defenders.
The representative of the Odesa OVA Sergey Bratchuk confirmed to Channel 24 that the Admiral Makarov ship had indeed entered the Black Sea.
He stressed that the Russians are now actively trying to settle on Zmein Island.
As for the frigate Admiral Makarov, I hope this is the beginning of a big flash mob – a meeting with the crew of the cruiser Moskva. After all, today is just 40 days in Moscow. Why not over time celebrate this with the help of “Admiral Makarov”? – said Bratchuk.
A representative of the Odesa OVA added that they do not see any preparations for a landing in the Odesa region, although there is such a risk. “All these talks and threats will end only after our victory,” he said.

- It was Admiral Makarov who became the new flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet after the Ukrainians sank the cruiser Moskva.
