Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has toured cruiser Ukrayina, the most powerful warship of the Ukrainian Navy, at least in theory.
Slava-class cruiser Ukrayina, as most of Ukrainian military means and facilities, started being constructed in the Soviet times. The warship was launched in 1990 just before the fall of the USSR. It may become the spear of the Ukrainian Navy. However, due to budget constraints (as always caused by mass corruption) work on the cruiser stopped in the early 1990s and the ship was left unfinished.
According to reports in Ukrainian media, the cruiser needs 30 million dollars to be finished. However, the most powerful army in Europe (sic Poroshenko) does have no resources and technical capabilities to do so.
