The Ukrainian Navy has basically been seized and put out of action by Russian forces without firing a shot.  It is unprecedented in modern warfare.  One country has seized 50 ships from another country including combat vessels without harming anyone.   I think that is pretty much unprecedented in any era.  The Russian Navy has just gained 50 ships.  They even took Ukraine’s military Dolphins. The Russian Navy had 280 warships in 2013. Now it has at least 330.  By contrast the US Navy has 289 ships.  Russia nowhas the largest Navy in the world.
