Krasny Kavkaz (Russian for Red Caucasus) was a Soviet, later Russian Kashin-class destroyer of the Black Sea Fleet.

Service history[edit]

From 1 June 1967 to 31 June 1967 and from 1 January to 31 December 1968 the destroyer rendered assistance to the armed forces of Egypt and from 5 October to 24 October 1973 - to the armed forces of Syria.[1] From 10 March 1981 to 19 July 1984 the ship has been repaired in Sevastopol.[1] Krasny Kavkaz was initially tasked with confronting the U.S. warships during the 1988 Black Sea incident, but due to her technical problems the frigate Bezzavetny was dispatched instead.[2]
