The Black Sea Fleet is the fleet of the Russian Navy in the Black Sea, the Sea of Azov, and the Mediterranean Sea.

The Black Sea Fleet has its official primary headquarters and facilities in the Russian-occupied city of Sevastopol in Crimea, a de jure territory of Ukraine.

The remainder of the fleet's facilities are based in various locations on the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, including Krasnodar Krai, Rostov Oblast, and Crimea. The current commander, Admiral Igor Vladimirovich Osipov, has held his position since May 2019.

The Russian Navy can still rely on various ships, including Admiral Grigorovich class frigates, Tarantul class corvettes, Ropucha class landing ships, and Kilo-class submarines.
