The Storozhevoy Mutiny occurred in 1975 when the political officer of the ship protested against the corrupt Brezhnev administration. The officer, Valery Sablin, wished to return Russia to its Soviet roots and Leninist principles. The revolt didn't really go as planned and ended with the ship being boarded by Soviet marine commandos, Captain Sablin was then detained and convicted of high treason.
