Vice Admiral Kulakov is a Project 1155 large ASW ship.

REGISTRATION

Northern Fleet

CONSTRUCTION, NAME

The ship was laid down on November 4, 1977 at Zhdanov Shipyard No. 190 (now Severnaya Verf shipyard) in Leningrad; launched on May 16, 1980; commissioned on February 9, 1982.

MILESTONES

In Nov 3-7, 1988 the ship visited Havana (Cuba).

In 2000 the ship was transferred from Kronshtadt ship repair plant to Severnaya Verf shipyard. Prior to that, the ship had been pending repairs for about 10 years.

On Dec 4, 2009 conscript sailor Arthur Kayumov got poisoned with carbon monoxide as a result of underdeck fire. His parents were informed that their son died doing military duties. Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Vladimir Vysotsky discharged six officers served on the ship for "breach of the contract". Executive officer, second-in-command, engineer officer, machinery group commander, and two warrant officers lost their posts. Higher rank officials from 13th Maintenance Brigade, Leningrad Naval Base were also punished. Brigade deputy commander for maintenance was reduced in position. The ship's commanding officer and brigade deputy commander received service incompetence notes.

In 2010 two conscript sailors were hazed by old-timers and officers and were about to commit suicide.

In Apr 2010 the Central Navy Portal posted the video record of a lesson at Northern Fleet's large ASW ship Vice Admiral Kulakov. The instructor beat sailors and threatened bodily harm for mistakes they did, calling them critters and cads.

In 2010 Severnaya Verf shipyard completed the ship's repair and remanufacturing. Weapons and life support systems were renewed; crew living conditions were considerably improved.
