The Russian training Perekop undergoes repair in Varna, Bulgaria. The contract for the repair of the ship was signed on 18th July 2013, according to At the time of contract signature it was presumed that the repair would be completed in 2015. As early as 2012 some sources even reported that "According to unverified information, after repair in Bulgaria, training ship Smolny will head for French naval base Toulon to be used as floating barracks for Russian naval servicemen trained in France as a future crew of Mistral-class amphibious ship Vladivostok." Now since the Mistral-class contract between Russia and France was not completed, the Perekop training vessel would obviously not serve that purpose. Anyway, Perekop remains in Varna with repair works on the vessel superstructure and hull going on as the three photos below show.
