While the matrix includes the phrase TO SINK, it may not refer to the modern ship. The Vice-Admiral (Stepan Makarov) that it was named for was killed when his flagship Petropavlovsk struck a Japanese naval mine and the ship’s magazine detonated on April 13, 1904 when he was defending Port Arthur. Serous doubt about the sinking arose on May 8, 2022 when a journalist named H.I. Sutton claimed to have seem the frigate afloat and well sailing near Sevastopol in the Russian-occupied Crimean Peninsula. In other words, close to home. He based his claim on satellite imagery, but the there are other Russian frigates in the Black Sea. Both sides in this war are often caught lying.
