What a blow that the Ukrainian armed forces have now managed: The explosions on the missile cruiser “Moskva” shown in the newly surfaced video leave no doubt that this flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet is badly damaged and therefore disabled – Ukrainian sources even say so that the “Moskva” has already sunk.
According to Russian sources, all 610 crew members may have managed to escape. A claim that will have to be verified in light of the large explosions.
The “Moskva” was the flagship of the Russian fleet in the Black Sea: 187 meters long, heavily armed with various types of guided missiles and machine guns. The missile cruiser reached a top speed of 60 km/h and was also used on international missions, for example in the Mediterranean.
Wild rumors are already circulating on social media platforms about the destruction of the “Moskva”: Russia-friendly users believe that the Ukrainians only achieved this success with the help of Western nations. And one user writes that he would not be surprised “if a US Navy SEAL team was involved in this operation”.
