Ukraine Claims Russian Warship Moskva Was Destroyed In Missile Attack


Russia has suffered a significant setback amid the war with Ukraine. Russia’s warship Moskva was destroyed on the 50th day of Russia-Ukraine. Ukraine claims that this warship has been destroyed in its attack. It is being told that the 186 meters long Moskva warship sank in the Black Sea after catching fire.

This Russian warship was involved in the attack on Ukraine from the Black Sea. Ukraine claims that it destroyed this warship using the Neptune missile. But Russia claims that due to the fire in the ammunition of this warship equipped with killer missiles, it exploded, and after that, it caught fire. Russia says that it took out all the marines aboard the warship in time.

Russian Warship Moskva Sunk

In his address to the nation, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky pointed to the sinking of a Russian warship. “The people of Ukraine should be proud to have survived the attack for 50 days,” he said. At the same time, Russia gave us a maximum of 5 days.


Listing the many ways Ukraine has defended against aggression, he said, “the ones that showed that Russian warships can go far, even if it is undersea.” This was his only reference to a missile cruiser.

How the warship was destroyed

It is being told that Russia had fired several missiles from Snake Island from this warship in February. After this, this warship was targeted by Ukraine. It is being claimed that Ukraine defrauded Moskva’s radar system by resorting to Turkey’s Byraktar drone. After this, seeing the opportunity, the Ukrainian army hiding in Odessa destroyed it with 2 Neptune missiles.

What did Russia say?

The Russian Defense Ministry said the explosion occurred after a fire on the warship. But the cause of the fire is not yet known. The Slava class missile cruiser was launched in 1979. It has 16 anti-ship missiles and many air defence missiles, torpedoes and guns deployed. This Russian warship is included in the Black Sea Fleet and was also participating in the war against Ukraine since February.
