Russian warship: Moskva sinks in Black Sea | BBC

Must Read

The Russian fleet is deteriorating due to the sinking of the second giant battleship since the invasion of Ukraine.

Moskva was being hauled to dock when it sank due to “stormy waves,” according to the Russian defence ministry. Moscow has denied any assault, stating that the vessel sunk due to a fire. Ukrainian military authorities claim they attacked the Moskva using Neptune missiles manufactured in Ukraine. We hailed the ship’s sinking as a “major blow.” Russian official media are not lamenting the loss of the Black Sea fleet’s pride.

Numerous commentators concur that the development will not affect the outcome of the conflict. However, it is a blow to national pride; the Moskva, long a symbol of Russian power and aspiration, is now submerged. The Moskva is Russia’s second giant warship to be lost since the invasion of Ukraine began. The guided-missile cruiser was formerly stationed in Syria, where it provided naval support for Russian soldiers. According to experts, its loss would make Russia’s Black Sea fleet more susceptible to aircraft strikes.
