There seems to be some confusion as to just what the Russians called this ship. The caption calls it the Bayan, whereas this note from the web page calls it something else:
This ship is the former Russian Navy warship Varyag, captured during the Russo-Japanese War. IJN Soya (ex- Varyag) would later be returned to Russia in 1916, and once more sail under her original name.
