Ukraine Confirms Destruction Of Russian Warship, Novocherkassk, In Crimea

The Kremlin revealed on Tuesday that a battleship based in the Crimean port of Feodosia had been destroyed by an attack from Ukraine. Russia’s Black Sea Fleet naval facility, located on the Crimean peninsula that it has annexed, is called Feodosia.

Vladimir Putin was notified about the damage to the large landing ship by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu via a very thorough report, Dmitry Peskov told reporters. The Ukrainian Air Force announced earlier on Tuesday that, at about 2:30 a.m. local time, it had launched a cruise missile attack against Novocherkassk.

The Novocherkassk had been “destroyed,” and the people believe that it transported Shaheds, a reference to the Iranian explosive drones that Russia frequently uses against Ukraine. The magnitude of the damage was not disclosed by Russia’s Defense Ministry. However, it was reported that the attack destroyed two Ukrainian Su-24 bombers.

A spokesperson for the Ukrainian Air Force, Yury Ihnat, refuted Moscow’s assertions. Russian naval base in Feodosia saw a fiery explosion, as seen in a video uploaded by Ukraine’s air force commandant Mykola Olechtchouk.

The head of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, who enjoys support from the Kremlin, reported that the attack on Feodosia resulted in one fatality and two injuries, forcing the evacuation of adjacent civilians. He posted that the port area was cordoned off, on the Telegram app.

Per RIA Novosti, his assistant, Oleg Kryuchkov, threatened to file criminal charges against anyone who released video of the assault, stating the creators of the photos had already been identified. Ukraine attacks Crimea on a regular basis, focusing on Russian military installations. It sank the Black Sea fleet’s flagship cruiser Moskva in April 2022.

Russia previously used the Novocherkassk for military action in Syria. Per the open-source intelligence initiative Oryx, during Moscow’s invasion, Ukraine may have destroyed 11 of the 16 Russian warships that it engaged. Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, stated on social media that the occupiers are not going to have even one peaceful place in Ukraine.

The assault follows a September strike by Ukraine on the Black Sea Fleet’s headquarters in Sevastopol, which compelled Moscow to relocate its warships to ports further east.
