No but as you know the NITKA carrier training complex is located at the Saki airbase. With the break-up of the Soviet Union this became Ukrainian territory and the Su-33 in the photo is likely a test airframe that was left behind .

All ten Su-25UTGs produced were initially stationed at NITKA and these were split equally between Russia and Ukraine, so Ukraine may still have airworthy Su-25UTGs though.

I don't know when the photo was taken(it didn't say), but it doesn't have to be from early 90'ies - the Gorshkov was actually in service until 1997 when it was laid up in reserve.

Yes but they pay Ukraine for using it. I am not sure what the exact arrangement is though - i.e. whether it is on an actual lease basis with a fixed anual payment or whether they just pay a fee per training session .
