7 “Friendly” Ship Guarding Moscow

“Friendly” Ship Guarding Moscow

Posted on April 20, 2011 by team

An abandoned lonely ship standing in the middle of the Moscow River looks quite unusual. Its name is "Druzhny" ("Friendly") and at first it was going to be restored and become a museum. But at the moment this has not happened yet. Everything is dismantled inside and only a deckhouse and a number of cabins remained intact...

    Damnit, I still want that wooden skiff! Turn the ship into a restaurant/night club/hotel/museum.

    Krivak class frigate. The only type of Red Navy ship I actually saw at sea when I was in the USN during the Cold War. Nice video of some in better days here

    Nobody underestimates what Russia could achieve with this ship – thankfully it is effectively decommissioned.
