Transfer of "flotilla" with the general displacement slightly more than 6,5 thousand tons has caused an unknown stir in the Ukrainian media. Journalists of government editions have regarded routine transfer of two unaided ships nearly as a crusade Independent against "the Russian aggressor". However, in social networks have with all the heart laughed in comments under photos of an unfortunate squadron. Donbass was floated in far the 1969th under the designation "PM-9" ("A floating workshop"). The ship regularly made transitions to the Black, Mediterranean, Baltic seas, looked to Syria, Tunisia, Egypt, Poland. I solved problems of maintenance of fighting capacity and repair of other ships of the Navy of the USSR during distant campaigns and fighting services. After the collapse of the USSR and the section of the Black Sea Fleet "PM-9" has got to Ukraine under the name "Krasnodon". In the 2001st the ship was renamed into Donbass.
