Inshore Minesweeper RT-214
Project 1258E / Yevgenya Class

The Project 1258 Korund (Yevgenya class by the NATO classification) are a group of minesweepers built for the Soviet Navy and export customers between 1967 and 1980. These were small minehunters built for inshore work. The hulls were constructed of glass-reinforced plastic. For low speed on the ship, a special diesel engine of 80 hp was used. The minesweeper was very successful and with its very small size (displacement of about 90 tons) had a full range of anti-mines weapons. The ship was in great demand in the world market. A total of 40 inshore minesweepers on Project 1258E (variant for export) were sold to 10 countries.

Inshore Minesweeper RT-214 laid down at the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard, Pontonny (yard No.152) by Project 1258E, commissioned on 10 July 1985 and assigned to the Black Sea Fleet.

RT-214 was excluded from the lists of the Black Sea Fleet on 10 January 1996 and transferred to the Ukrainian Naval Forces, with rename to Genichensk (hull number U360).
