The Cold War is over. If there was any question of this, the seven-volume Russia's Arms Catalog confirms the fact. The NAVY volume of the series describes the major warships and aircraft of the Russian Navy as well as ekranoplanes, naval support ships, swimmer delivery vehicles, swimmer weapons (and counter-swimmer weapons), coastal defense weapons, guided missiles, naval guns, decoys, torpedoes, mines, radars, sonars, fire control systems, radio equipment, chemical-biological-radiological protection gear, and even shore facilities.
