 Border guard patrol ship Dnepr
Project 1124P / Grisha II class

The Grisha class antisubmarine ship is designed to to find and destroy high-speed enemy submarines and warships escort convoys in the near sea zone. The first series of Grishas was built from 1968-74, but successive improvements to the design led to four discrete versions, three for the navy and one sub-class for the KGB coastal patrols. Classified by the Russians as small anti-submarine ships, the Grishas pack a heavy anti-submarine armament into a relatively small hull. Combined with a respectable anti-aircraft armament, this makes the Grishas much more effective than the profusion of older escort vessels that were retired in the late 1980s.

Border guard patrol ship Dnepr laid down 23 December 1975 at the Shipyard named after A.M. Gorky, Zelenodolsk (yard No.775), launched 12 September 1976, commissioned 31 December 1976.

In June 1992 transferred to the Ukraine. 19 January 1996 the ship was renamed Vinnytsia and reclassified as a corvette (hull number U206, from april 2018 - hull number A206).
