Teammates.

With great sadness, I want to let you know that today, Aleksandr Dobrenko passed away at the age of 65. He was a fine modeler, Member of the Board of the Youth Marine Council, Foreman of the Guild of Shipbuilding Models of the St. Petersburg Union, Organizer of All-Russian Competitions on ship modeling. He was a great person and will be never forgotten.

Svensksund_9_till_10_juli_1790,_Ö_3935.tif.jpg
1790 - The Battle of Svensksund (with 500 ships) (Finnish: Ruotsinsalmi, Russian: Rochensalm) was a naval battle fought in the Gulf of Finland outside the present day city of Kotka on 9 and 10 July 1790. The Swedish naval forces dealt the Russian fleet a devastating defeat that resulted in an end to the Russo-Swedish War of 1788–90. The battle is the biggest Swedish naval victory and the largest naval battle ever in the Baltic Sea.
