MPK-228 Bashkortostan is a Project 1331M Small ASW Ship (SAS).


Baltic Fleet


The ship was laid down on November 20, 1987 at Peene-Werft shipyard (Wolgast, GDR); launched on October 31, 1988; commissioned on October 31, 1989. The ship obtained a name of Bashkortostan on September 2, 1999 as Republic of Bashkortostan took patronage over her.


In April 2005 the ship's crew received 20 tonnes of gifts from Bashkortostan.

On February 7, 2007 compressed air exploded on board the ship based in Baltiysk. An extremely hard fire was extinguished by 13 fire trucks and Baltic Fleet's fireboat. Ship's deckhouse, deck midsection, cookroom, and armory were damaged in consequence of the fire outbreak.

Decommissioned in May 2010.
