Inshore Minesweeper RT-583
Project 1258 / 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-583 laid down at the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard, Pontonny (yard No.106), commissioned in 1970 and assigned to the Black Sea Fleet.

RT-583 was decommissioned and excluded from the lists of the Black Sea Fleet on 19 March 1992.
