RUSSIA-UKRAINE WAR Russian Warship Catches Fire in Black Sea Following Ukrainian Strike FLASH NEWS!
A Russian ship caught fire after it was struck in the Black Sea and was forced to return to port, a Ukrainian official claimed on Friday.
Serhiy Bratchuk, a spokesman for the Kyiv-backed Odesa Regional Military Administration, told news outlets that “as a result of the actions of our military sailors, the logistics ship Vsevolod Bobrov, one of the newest in the Russian fleet, [caught fire]. They say that it is [being towed] to Sevastopol.”
Ukraine said the logistics ship was struck near Snake Island, a small but strategic outpost close to Ukraine’s sea border with Romania. The Epoch Times could not immediately verify the claims, and Russia has not issued a statement on the alleged incident.
In April, the Russian naval ship Moskva was destroyed in the Black Sea, with Ukrainian officials claiming responsibility. Moscow said that it was instead caused by an ammunition fire.
It comes as Ukrainian military forces in the eastern part of the country have destroyed a “significant” amount of Russian tanks and other armored vehicles during an attempt to cross a river, according to the UK Ministry of Defense in an operational update posted on Friday.
