The MOSKVA seems formidable enough... does it leak?

Yeah, the Moskva looks like a typical civilian rescue ship. There are five ships in this flotilla. That must be one for each Russian in Gaza unless we are really now getting the news on the ground.

I saw her in Sevastopol a couple of years ago. Looking shabby. The Russian Black Sea Fleet is in pretty tough shape. Some of their smaller auxilieries look all right but most of the bigger stuff is laid up. Just not enough money for the required maintenance.
