Another Russian Ship Is On Fire In The Black Sea

1787

Another Russian cruiser has apparently been lost after a mystery fire engulfed the vessel.

According to Ukrainian military sources, a Neptune missile hit one of Russia’s Navy logistic ships while feeding Putin’s men on Snake Island.

The ship struck, according to Anton Gerashchenko, an assistant to Ukraine’s Minister of Internal Affairs, was a spanking new auxiliary ship named the Vsevolod Bobrov. The logistics ship is slightly over 95 meters long and weighs around 4,900 tons.

It was first released in 2016. The afflicted ship, which was completely destroyed in the fire, is said to have returned to the port city of Sevastopol in Russian-controlled Crimea.

Vsevolod Bobrov was used as a landing ship by Russia’s Black Sea Fleet to supply Snake Island.

The fire was first thought to have begun by accident, but subsequent accounts indicate that the intensity of the inferno could only have been caused by a powerful anti-ship cruise missile like the Neptune, which was responsible for the sinking of Russia’s flagship missile cruiser, the Moskva.

The devastating attack occurred on Wednesday night, as the ship was delivering a Pantsir missile system to Russian forces on the island.

The Elbrus is now parked in the Arctic Russian port of Murmansk, and Russia’s navy only possesses two such logistic battleships.

On Thursday morning, Ukraine’s official data on Russian losses revealed that another ship had been lost in the previous day, but provided no other information.

Since the commencement of the fight on February 24, Ukraine’s military alleges that 13 Russian vessels and boats, including its flagship missile cruiser Moskva, have been destroyed.

Near Snake Island, at least six of those ships were assaulted.
