In November 1975, a group of sailors led by the ship's political officer took over the Soviet 'Krivak' class destroyer 'Storozhevoy' and attempted to sail to Sweden to seek asylum. They were attacked and turned back by Soviet naval and air units. Information of this dramatic event which has never been acknowledged by the Soviets, made it to the West only piece by piece
