During World War I, she served in the Black Sea Fleet and fought in several engagements with the battlecruiser SMS Goeben. After the Russian revolution she briefly joined the navy of the Ukrainian Peoples Republic.
The ship was captured by the Germans in May 1918 and turned over to the British during the Allied invasion of Russia during the Russian Civil War in November 1918. The Allies wrecked the machinery of the ship to prevent use by the Reds and the remains of the ship were scrapped in 1922.
