Moskva (Москва the Russian name for the city of Moscow, ex-Slava, Слава which means "Glory") is the lead ship of the Project 1164 Atlant class of guided missile cruisers in the Russian Navy.The ship is currently held under the patronage of the city of Moscow. Slava was laid down in 1976 in Shipyard 445 of the 61 Kommunara Shipbuilding Plant in Nikolayev, was launched in 1979, and commissioned on 30 January 1983. Slava returned to Nikolayev in December 1990 for a refit but was not returned to service until April 2000. Recommissioned as Moskva, she replaced the Kynda class cruiser Admiral Golovko as the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet. In early April 2003, Moskva, along with Pytlivy, Smetlivy, and a landing ship departed Sevastopol for exercises in the Indian Ocean with a Pacific Fleet task group (Marshal Shaposhnikov and Admiral Panteleyev) and the Indian Navy. The force was supported by the Project 1559V tanker Ivan Bubnov and the Project 712 ocean-going tug Shakhter. In August 2008, in response to the Georgian crisis, the Moskva was deployed to secure the Black Sea. After Russia's recognition of Abkhazia's independence, the ship was stationed at the Abkhazian capital, Sukhumi. In late August 2013, the cruiser was deployed to the Mediterranean Sea in response to the build-up of American warships along the coast of Syria. #1976 #1979 #1983 #1990 #2000 #2003 #2008 #2009 #2010 #2013 #Admiral #Admiral_Golovko #American #American_Navy #April #Atlant #Atlant_class #Atlant_Krasina_class #August #Black #Black_Sea #Black_Sea_Fleet #bottom #buildup #city #class #clearing #coast #commissioned #Cruiser #Cuba #December #departed #dock #down #exSlava #exercises #flagship #Fleet #floating #force #Glory #group #Guided_Missile #Guided_Missile_Cruiser #Havana #hull #Indian #Indian_Navy #Indian_Ocean #interim #Ivan_Bubnov #January #join #Krasina #Kynda #Kynda_class_cruiser #laid #laid_down #laid_up #landing_ship #launched #lead #lead_ship #machinery #Mediterranean_Sea #Missile_Cruiser #month #Moscow #Moskva #name #Navy #navy_units #Nikolayev #Ocean #overhaul #Pacific #Pacific_Fleet #painting #patronage #Project_1164 #Project_1559V #Project_712 #Pytlivy #Recommissioned #refit #replaced #reported #response #returned #Russia #Russian #Russian_Navy #scheduled #screws #Sea #service #Sevastopol #Shakhter #ship #Shipyard #Slava #Slava_class #Smetlivy #supported #Syria #tanker #task #task_group #tug #warships #water #Москва #Слава
