Russian Missile Cruiser Sinks in Black Sea

by Stephen Lendman

A previous article explained that Russia's missile cruiser Moskva sustained "serious damage" from a Wednesday night ammunition explosion caused by fire onboard.

No evidence supports Kiev's claim about two Ukrainian anti-ship missiles striking the vessel.

While being towed to the Russian port city of Sevastopol, it sank in stormy waters, a Russian Defense Ministry saying the following:

"During the towing of the Moskva cruiser to the designation port, the ship lost stability due to hull damage, sustained during the detonation of ammunition because of a fire." 

"Amid the heavy storm, the ship sank."

Commissioned in 1983, the Moskva was the flagship of Russia's Black Ship fleet.

Loss of the vessel will have little or no effect on Russia's special military operation.

Things continue as planned.
