A bit of history
Moskva was a guided-missile cruiser of the Russian Navy and the flagship of Russia's Black Sea fleet that helped to lead the naval assault during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Length: 610 ft (186 m); crew: 510 people. A report from Forbes Ukraine estimated the cost of the Moskva to be around $750 million.
The cruiser became popular after it ordered a group of Ukrainian soldiers on Snake Island in Ukraine's territorial waters to surrender. However, the troops defiantly refused in a radio message, saying, "Russian warship, go fuck yourself!" This phrase became extremely popular during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.
On April 14, 2022, the Ukrainian military struck the Russian navy cruiser Moskva with two missiles, causing "severe damage" to the warship. The cruiser sank in the Black Sea.
