The submerged leader of the destroyers of the project 20I “Tashkent” after the liberation of Novorossiysk from the Nazis.

The ship was sunk by German aircraft in the port of Novorossiysk on July 2, 1942. Major damage occurred in the middle part of the hull (85-122 frames).

On January 13, 1944, ship-raising work began. The ship was able to lift only August 30, 1944. The ascent took place without complications, after which the ship was towed to the shallow and set on a flat ground at a depth of 4.5 meters. On the sandbanks all the holes were sealed. During the damage survey, it was found that there was no point in restoring the “Tashkent”, and after towing to the port of Nikolaev in 1945 the ship was scrapped.
