RUSSIAN NAVY cruiser MOSKVA in Lisbon

The Russian Navy missile cruiser MOSKVA ex-SLAVA (commissioned in 1982) arrived in Lisbon on 25 January for a visit. She left on 28th January and was docked at the Rocha Passenger Ship Terminal. The presence of this cruiser from the former Soviet Navy and the cold war days in Lisbon was quite interesting. The ship is particularly attractive with a paraphernalia of electronics and armement, most of it already outdated. A nice way of a Russian Naval ship to show the flag in Portuguese waters. Welcome, MOSKVA...
