Although nuclear-powered submarines no longer operate out of Rakushka, it is still home to a number of diesel submarines.
In 1990, due to strong opposition by local residents, the Pacific Fleet gave up plans to offload spent nuclear submarine fuel at Rakushka. A 1994 Komsomolskaya pravda news report described two 1994 visits to the area by a commission from the Primorskiy Kray Administration. Inspectors found seven virtually unguarded nuclear submarines "brimful with nuclear fuel." Systems for monitoring the submarines were deficient. Ordinary domestic heaters were used to regulate the temperature inside the submarines. Rakushka had not been entered on the list of facilities immune to power cutoffs, and power outages lasting up to several hours were common. The report placed the blame for the dangerous conditions at the facility on a Navy Main Staff directive, which disbanded the subunit responsible for material and technical support and cut funds for its radiation control service.
An April 1996 news report noted that decommissioned submarines at Rakushka in Vladimir Bay were losing buoyancy, and that the bow of one first-generation submarine was beached to avoid sinking. According to a May 1996 news report citing Chief of the Pacific Fleet’s Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Service Captain Valeriy Danilyan, there are seven submarines at Rakushka awaiting dismantlement. However, as of October 1999 some of the reactors on these decommissioned nuclear submarines reportedly held damaged spent fuel, and Russia is ill-equipped to deal with this fuel. According to one US source, all vessels were removed from Rakushka to Pavlovsk Bay in the late 1990s. However, Russian sources are silent on the matter.
