Museum of rear Admiral Vsevolod Fedorovich Rudnev in the village of Savino (Tula region, Zaoksky district) was opened to visitors on February 9, 2004.
This year celebrated the 100th anniversary of the heroism of the crew of the cruiser âVaryagâ and the gunboat âKoreanâ in the battle of Chemulpo (Korea) during the Russo-Japanese war (1904-1905).
Russian sailors engaged in battle with the superior forces of the enemy. They were ready to die, but to keep the Andreevsky flag. Having exhausted all military resources, the commander decided the cruiser to sink, and gunboat to blow up.
