Saint Admiral Ushakov (1744-1817). was recently canonized by Russian Orthodox Church his contribution for the development of Russian sea war forces is amazing. While youtubbing, I've stuck across a nice Russian movie retelling some of the great war victories Ushakov achieved with Russian War Ships. http://s.pc-freak.net/url/321 - Адмирал Ушаков (Admiral Ushakov) Russian Movie about life of Admiral Ushakov and creation of Russian War sea fleet in Black Sea under governance of Admiral Ushakov Историко-биографический фильм о создании в 1779 году русского флота на Черном море под руководством великого русского флотоводца и патриота России - Федора Ушакова (1744-1817). - Почетный диплом на МКФ в Виши (Франция) (1954) КатегорияWednesday, 11-Mar-15 22:07:26 UTC from web
Feodor (Theodor) Ushakov has a significant meaning especially for us Bulgarians, because his most triumphant battle victory happened near Black Sea's cape Kaliakra (nowadays Bulgaria) during Russo-Turkish war (1787-1792). The Turkish were led by Hussein "Pascha". Contral Admiral Ushakov used a fantastic strategy to out beat the Turkish and Algerian ships which were significantly outnumbering Russians. No ships were lost from both sides but Turkish scared of loosing the battle fled to Constantinople (nowdays Istanbul).
