Chernihiv (U310) is a Natya class minesweeper of the Ukrainian Navy. Since 5 March 2014, Lutsk has been blocked on the Donuzlav Lake. The ship was handed back to Ukraine in May 2014.

History

Minesweeper Zenitchik was built in the Sredne-Nevskiy SS3 shipbuilding yard in Leningrad in 1974. The ship was deployed on combat tours in Persian Gulf, Red Sea and the Atlantic between 1977 and 1988.

During the partition of the Black Sea Fleet, the minesweeper was transferred to Ukrainian Navy on July 25, 1997. It was renamed Zhovti Vody (U310 Zhovti Vody), in honor of the Battle of Zhovti Vody. On June 18, 2004 the minesweeper was renamed Chernihiv.
